I am a clinical doctoral student at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology, and am so pleased and excited to start working here as a practicum intern!
A lot of my hands-on experience comes from serving the community in Flint, Michigan. During my time there, I worked with adolescents in at-risk (abused and neglected) situations and children who were exposed to the Flint water crisis. I also had the opportunity to provide sexual violence prevention and intervention training to university students, faculty, and staff. My experiences have strongly emphasized on effective communication, maintaining strong interpersonal relations, and looking through a multi-cultural as well as individualized lens. It is my overall goal to utilize and further enhance my skills to serve you as best as possible.
My approach to working with individuals is very client-centered and comes from a holistic viewpoint. I believe that the process of healing and positive change involves focusing on looking at human beings as a whole and exploring their personal issues/experiences. I enjoy working with all individuals, regardless of age, race, cultural background, or religious affiliation. My areas of interest include (but not limited to): LGBTQ+ issues, sexual violence, depression, anxiety, and trauma.
I am bilingual: fluent in English and Vietnamese.
