14 years of experience
Solution oriented

Hi there, I'm Dr. Shi. Do you want to become the best self, learn how to better manage and cope with life transitions, and stay on top of daily stressors? I could provide help by creating a safe and trusting environment where you feel comfortable sharing your experiences and feelings and receiving genuine feedback. In our sessions, we will explore patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviors to establish improved ways of being and relating to others. Through our work together, you will achieve a better understanding of yourself, helping you to alleviate distress and develop more satisfying relationships. I am a licensed therapist in the state of Maryland with more than ten years of experience in individual counseling (adults and adolescents). I earned my doctoral degree in Counselor Education from the George Washington University in 2014 and since then I have been a faculty in school counseling programs in universities.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Our first session is an intake session where clients will share their presenting issues and demographic information. After intake, clients will receive a treatment plan that lists goals/objectives and possible interventions. Treatment plans will be reviewed every 6-8 weeks and reassess clients' needs for therapy. If you need assistance with online forms, please contact +1 (786) 755-1863 or email: reception+Qi8978@growtherapy.com

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I embrace an eclectic and collaborative approach to therapy, where working with clients and their families to develop the necessary skills and strategies to overcome life's challenges is the primary goal! I also bring a culturally sensitive lens to my work and pay critical attention to socio-cultural factors that impact my clients' lived experiences.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship, and life transition adjustment issues. I have expertise in working with diverse client populations in terms of race/ethnicity, languages spoken, immigration status and gender identity. I use a systemic and strength-based lens when working with diverse clients which means clients will learn about valuing and utilizing their assets and seeing the presenting issues in an ecological framework.
