University of Notre Dame
Notre Dame, Indiana
I am a licensed psychologist and health services provider in psychology. I am a first generation immigrant and grew up in China. I embarked on my journey to the U.S. about 12 years ago as an international student. I hold a doctoral degree from the Counseling and Student Personnel Psychology Program at the University of Minnesota. I am currently working as a clinical psychologist at the University of Notre Dame, Indiana.
My clinical expertise includes multicultural counseling, counseling with immigrants and international students, tele-psychotherapy, applied positive psychology, biofeedback for anxiety and stress related issues, mood disorders, and suicide prevention and intervention. I am passionate about destigmatizing mental health issues and increasing access to mental health services for underserved populations. I serve as a consulting psychologist for the United Chinese Americans (UCA) Youth Development Program to develop programs and workshops to promote Asian American youths’ mental health and parent-child relationships.
I am the presenter of the TEDx speech “Rewire your Brain for Self-Compassion” which discusses strategies to develop resilient thinking patterns to prevent mental health issues and improve psychological well-being.
In my spare time I am a blogger and share strategies about resilience building for children and young adults with Chinese-speaking readers. I live in Chicago with my husband and our newly adopted puppy. I enjoy taking walks outdoors and playing ukulele.
