Xin is a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and earned her Master’s degrees in Counseling Psychology from University of Pennsylvania.
Xin seeks to develop a safe and trusting environment for students to express and be seen as who they are. Xin believes a genuine, empathic and accepting environment facilitates changes and growth. Xin also believes many emotional or psychological struggles are less resulting from individual deficits or failures, more of consequences to many external factors that are beyond individual’s control, such as their developmental history, cultural background or social structures. Xin works with students to gain insight into their personal history to grow self-compassion and acceptance. Xin utilizes a variety of therapeutic techniques to empower students to achieve their goals.
Xin is originally from China and a native speaker in Mandarin (Chinese).
