She also has experience in working at a community mental health center, a Veteran’s hospital, and psychiatric hospitals.
She specializes in anxiety (including OCD), depression, mood dysregulation, school refusal, self-injurious behaviors, self-esteem issues, interpersonal problems, and personality disorders in adolescents as well as adults. She also conducts neuropsychological and psychological assessment for diagnostic clarification and treatment recommendations. While she strives to integrate various evidence-based treatments, her main approaches are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). She also utilizes Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to work with individuals who struggle with emotion regulation and interpersonal problems.
Dr. Suh believes therapy is a process of growth in which a client and a therapist collaborate with each other. She strives to provide a safe and caring environment where clients can explore their potential to grow. Outside her therapy work, she enjoys cooking, hiking, reading, and spending time with her family including her dog, Mango.
