Therapeutic Style: I use an integrative approach with an emphasis on Relational-Cultural Theory, Solution-Focused Therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy. I believe that students are the expert of their own lives with their unique needs, which requires individualized approaches.
Professional Interests: My areas of professional interests include high risk, trauma and anxiety. As a bilingual clinician (Mandarin and English), I am dedicated to serving diverse populations, providing a safe space for marginalized groups and promoting social justice. Prior to coming to Syracuse University, I worked in a wide range of settings, including university, high school, community service and private practice.
Groups and Liaison Roles: I co-facilitate the Anxiety Skills Therapy Group and Understanding Yourself and Others (Graduate Process Group).
Education Background: I received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from East China Normal University (Shanghai) and a master’s degree in mental health counseling and behavioral medicine from Boston University. I currently hold a limited permit in Mental Health Counseling (MHC).
