Jenny and I talk about what anxiety is, how it manifests and offer some concrete suggestions on how to lessen it during this pandemic.
Dr. Jenny Wang is a first generation, Taiwanese American licensed psychologist in Texas and North Carolina. She earned her undergraduate degree with honors in finance and psychology at the University of Texas at Austin. Her passion for psychology and the realization that few Asian Americans pursued psychology as a lifelong career led her to pursue her PhD in Clinical Psychology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. During her graduate training, she was a teaching assistant, graduate student mentor, and Chief Resident of the clinical psychology graduate program. After completing her PhD, she went on to complete her postdoctoral training at the Duke University Medical Center where she was also on faculty. Dr. Wang currently has a private practice in Houston, Texas where she works exclusively with women’s mental health issues across the lifespan. She is extremely passionate about reducing the stigma surrounding mental health in Asian communities and runs the Instagram account, @asiansformentalhealth, to promote awareness regarding Asian American mental health needs and unique immigrant experiences.
