I received my PhD in Clinical Psychology in 2011 from the University of Hawaii-Manoa, with a focus on treating youth with anxiety disorders. I completed an APA-accredited internship at Westchester Jewish Community Services and post-doctoral training in the Anxiety Disorders Center at St. Louis Behavioral Medicine Institute under the supervision of a senior therapist in the field who is a Scientific Advisory Board member. I have since been working at Behavior Therapy Center of Greater Washington (BTC) and received supervision from another senior therapist who is also a member of the Scientific Advisory Board.
During my graduate training in Hawaii, I worked with individuals of diverse cultural backgrounds, including Asian-Americans and native Hawaiians, . My internship in a community mental health center involved working primarily with minority, low-income clients.
