Wendy Hsu (徐儷慈), M.S., Doctoral Candidate
I am currently pursuing a PhD in Counseling Psychology at Georgia State University. I received my Master’s of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Georgia State University and my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Hong Kong. I have also studied in Boston, England and Singapore.
Language: English and Mandarin Chinese
Born and raised in Taiwan and having lived in 3 continents, I identify as a third culture
individual. I am bilingual in English and Mandarin Chinese. I had experiences working with
children, youth, young and older adults as well as working with couples and groups.
My areas of interests include multicultural identity development, cross-cultural adaptation &
transition, interracial/interethnic relationships, family & relationships issues, trauma,
perfectionism, stress management, suicide & crisis, anxiety & depression.
I utilize existential theories to help you find your purpose and meaning. I believe you are the
expert of your own life and I’m a witness to your journey. My goal is to support you in
cultivating resilience, courage and authenticity. I use multicultural and strength-based
approaches that allow conceptualization from a holistic lens and consider contextual and
systemic factors rather than focusing on mental dysfunction or pathology. I value and believe
in the power of strong therapeutic relationships and will meet you where you are to support
your growth and narratives.
