I am a licensed clinical psychologist with extensive experience working with adolescents, adults and families in psychotherapy, consultations and evaluations. (A) Treatments for substance and behavioral addiction have been a special area of interest and expertise, and I work closely with individuals who have concerns about their substance use, gambling or internet/gaming overuse. (B) I specialize in working with couples and families who experience relational difficulties and disruptive family functioning, between parents or in parent-child relations. (C) As a Korean-American clinician, I conduct evaluations and therapy with Asian-American young adults and their families.
As a general practitioner, my eclectic treatment approach involves facilitating a therapeutic environment, promoting emotional growth and building coping skills. Treatment goals focus on improving relational difficulties (e.g., parent-child, couple and family), achieving personal, educational and professional goals, making healthier life choices, and maintaining psychological well-being.
Upon receiving my doctorate from Long Island University, I completed National Institute of Health postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, where I am currently Clinical Assistant Professor. I presently serve as a consulting psychologist in secondary schools and colleges in the Philadelphia region. Please visit www.DrJesseSuh.com for more information.
