Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS)

Hello UCSD students! I feel honored for the opportunity to work with the students here at UCSD. I am a first generation Cambodian-Chinese American. My multicultural identities and life experiences have shaped my lens as a mental health provider. My goal is to help students examine how relational, social, educational, and cultural factors impact their life experiences. This holistic view of college students’ development, mental health, and academic achievement helps me to adapt my roles to meet students’ needs. My clinical interests include multicultural counseling, interpersonal relationships, immigrant, refugee and acculturation issues, stress management, depression and anxiety, and identity and career development. I hope for the opportunity to collaborate with you and support you during your journey here as a UCSD Triton.
