Professional statement

A New Jersey native, Dr. Chen is the youngest daughter of immigrant parents from Taiwan. She earned a Bachelor’s in Psychology from UCLA, followed by a Master’s in Psychology in Education from Columbia University, with Postbaccalaureate work in Pre-Health Studies from NYU..

She completed her medical degree from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine.

By completing her training during a year when the world was forced to embrace digital technology, Dr. Chen already has many hours of telemedicine under her belt. “I’ve been practicing telemedicine already. It increases people’s access and takes away the challenge of travel and having to take off work” she notes.

Having worked in the high-stress environment of New York City, Dr. Chen is adept at treating a variety of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. She is skilled in treating all adults, with a special interest in adolescent/college-age patients. She also looks to extend her work to working with other first- and second- generation Americans.

In her free time, Dr. Chen loves exploring the parks in New York and her native New Jersey, snowboarding in Vermont, and spending time with her family.
