I grew up in the Metro Atlanta area and lived with my parents and younger brother. The field of psychology piqued my interest primarily due to my father’s experiences of being a retired psychologist and my mother’s harrowing experience of being a refugee from Southeast Asia. I attended the University of Georgia for my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. After graduating, I worked at a nearby behavioral health hospital for a couple of years, prior to attending graduate school. I received my Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology from the Georgia School of Professional Psychology in 2017. After receiving my degree, I completed my postdoctoral training at the Georgia Tech Counseling Center and enjoyed it enough to stay for a few years. I joined Kramer & Montiel Psychology in 2020, where I hope to stay for many years to come. I enjoy living in Atlanta with my wife, young son, and dog, who keep me grounded throughout the ebbs and flows of work and life. With regard to my work, I specialize in therapy and assessment of children, adolescents, and young adults. I have special interests in areas of treatment involving anxiety, depression, attention and learning difficulties, self-esteem and self-exploration, men’s issues, and online gaming and technology addictions. Throughout my career in several different settings, I have found that building rapport and connecting with my clients plays the biggest role in determining the outcomes of treatment. I also believe that genuineness and authenticity are paramount both in my assessment work and in therapy sessions. I value the strengths and skills that each client brings to the therapy or assessment relationship, and I enjoy collaborating to determine the best path forward.
