Dr. Chung's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Chung "Hello, and thank you for visiting my page! I enjoy spending time with family and friends, running, Pilates, and staying up to date with the latest fashions! If you'd like to learn more about me, you can follow me on my Instagram page: lovealways.drbetsy. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, and currently practice in Newport Beach, California. I earned my bachelors degree from the University of California, Irvine in 2005, and my doctoral degree from Alliant University (previously California School of Professional Psychology) in 2010. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Chung "I help clients develop lifelong skills to manage struggles that were previously thought to be helpless. 

Psychotherapy is a collaborative effort between client and myself. Education is a large part of treatment with me, because I believe that progress can only take place when one can understand who they are, and how they relate to their world. 

While I've worked with many different populations with many different struggles, I do not treat particular diagnoses — rather, I treat life difficulties. I'm interested in discovering what's not working in a client's life versus fitting symptoms to a diagnosis criteria. 

I work with teenage and adult difficulties including life transitions, interpersonal relationships (family, romantic), low self-worth, poor boundaries, over-stress, feeling "stuck", breakups, and infidelity. This is not an exhaustive list. If you're interested in working with me, I'd be happy to chat with you by phone or email to determine whether I can be of help to you.  "
