Alice Phang


Hi everyone!

My name is Dr. Alice Ayoung Phang, and I am a Postdoctoral Psychology Fellow at the Counseling Center. I am originally from Seoul, South Korea, and I have spent many years in the U.S. as an international student. I recently completed my doctorate at the University of Houston in Texas and my pre-doctoral internship at Arizona State University Counseling Services. I enjoy playing any kind of sport that involves hitting a ball, such as baseball, squash or golf. I also get excited about trying new food from different cultures. My approach to therapy is primarily Emotionally Focused Therapy—a short-term form of therapy that focuses on adult relationships and attachment/bonding. I can help you find patterns in your relationships and take steps to create healthier bonds and connections. I also like to integrate cognitive-behavioral and interpersonal interventions. I like to tell my clients that, “We will get through this together.”

Clinical Interests: My professional interests include multicultural issues, mental health concerns of international students, career indecision, anxiety, and relationships.

Languages: Fluent in English and Korean

Approach to Supervision/Training: Integrated Developmental Model supervision style.
