I am a New York State Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) and a National Certified Counselor (NCC). I work full-time as a Psychotherapist at a non-profit community mental health clinic. This place allows me to obtain clinical experience and develop counseling skills. I am experienced working with Mood Disorders, Trauma & PTSD, Behavioral Disorders, Personality Disorders, Substance Abuse, and the LGBTQ community. I am competent in working with multiple cultural backgrounds. I have a Certification in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. Prior to my current experience, I worked as a Bilingual Psychotherapist at a Chinese Psychiatry practice. I have many years of research experience on mental health.
I developed a good understanding of how to connect with individuals from a variety of cultural backgrounds. In addition to English, I speak Cantonese and Mandarin fluently which allows me to be multiculturally competent.
