I grew up in a coastal city in Southeastern China. In 2010, I moved to Nashville, TN to pursue my masters’ degree in counseling at Vanderbilt University. After that, I moved to Lafayette, IN for my Ph.D. degree in Counseling Psychology. My research focuses on international students’ well-being in general.
During my years as a psychologist-in-training, I have worked at a couple of university counseling centers/clinics serving both traditional and non-traditional college students. I have also worked at a community mental health center serving adolescents and adults who are primarily from working class for a wide range of presenting issues. Additionally, I have worked at an inpatient psychiatric hospital serving patients of severe mental illness.
My hobbies include traveling, cooking, reading, hiking, and playing with my dog.
