Jennifer Oh, MSW, M.A.
I am a Counseling Psychology doctoral candidate from Radford University in Virginia completing my final training year. I completed my MSW at the University of Georgia where I cultivated a passion for addressing mental health disparities and stigma in immigrant and other traditionally underserved communities. My contextual lens has been deeply informed and enriched by my previous clinical practicum experiences at the V.A. Medical Center, integrated community health clinic, and college counseling center, as well as by my previous decade-long role as a NYC public school educator. I earned my M.A. in Education at Brooklyn College and my B.A. at the University of Michigan.
A relational-cultural, intersectional framework is the cornerstone of all work I do both inside and outside of the therapeutic space. Clinically, I aim to help individuals experience greater agency and autonomy by facilitating insight and present-moment awareness of all experiences. Towards that end, I integrate emotion-focused, psychodynamic, mindfulness and interpersonal techniques to facilitate growth and change. I especially enjoy working with young people who experience stressors related to identity development, intergenerational conflict and/or trauma, immigration, family-of-origin issues, racism and oppression, acculturation and loss, and interpersonal or relationship conflicts. I also find joy in supporting first-generation college students as they navigate the higher education process and beyond.
I am an avid reader and cook, and I love a good documentary. Aside from these activities, when I am not at the counseling center, I am deeply devoted to my family and friends, my pups, and my yoga practice.
