Alice Ayoung Phang
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.
