My experience with OCD spans 5 years in a specialized OCD and Anxiety Disorder practice, and includes consultation with my colleague, a BTTI trainer. I am also certified as a Diplomate with the Academy of Cognitive Therapy, and have completed in depth training in working with Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors with the TLC foundation for BFRBs.
Our practice is located in an area of Southern California that draws from a broad range of backgrounds. Our direct surrounding city is Glendale, which is 40% Armenian American. As a Chinese American, I am also frequently referred individuals of Chinese, Korean, Filipino, Japanese, and Taiwanese descent.

I speak Mandarin at a casually conversant level, and have lectured and consulted in China, where I collected data for my graduate dissertation. I also lived for a semester in Madrid, Spain during my undergraduate studies and speak Spanish proficiently. In my career, I have provided therapy and testing in both Mandarin and Spanish. This is in addition to standard multicultural psychology training in graduate school, which I attended here in Southern California.
