4 years of experience

I am a Licensed Clinical Social worker (LCSW) with specialized training in mental health. I have various experiences as a clinician working with people with serious mental illness(SMI) to Co-occurring disorders. I also have experience with people with mood disorders and personality disorders. My clinical and research interests are 1) how culture plays a role in one’s life, 2) how to reconstruct relationships through reconstructing one’s unresolved trauma, and 3) strengthening one’s resilience to cope with life difficulties. Lately, I've been focused on assisting second-generation immigrant teens and adults in developing a strong sense of self and bridging the cultural divide with their first-generation immigrant parents. Treating issues including but not limited to… ● Relationship problems ● Parenting Problems ● Serious mental illness ● Mood disorder ● Personality disorders ● Complicated trauma ● Self-esteem ​안녕하세요! 심리상담사 앨리 정입니다.유학생으로, 그리고 지금은 미국 사회에서 자리를 잡은 이민자로서 한인 가정을 돕다보니 많은 분들이 여러가지 문제를 가족내에서만 그리고 가족구성원 안에서만 해결하시려는 모습을 많이 봤습니다. 안타깝게도 어떤 문제들은 개개인의 노력많으로는 해결되지 안을때가있습니다. 그런 분들을 위해 제가 곁에서 가족같은 마음으로 성심껏​여러분의 어려움을 도와드리겠습니다.​
