Chinese International Students Support Group


This is an 8-week support group for Chinese international students to share their stories and process their feelings about navigating their life in US. Studying abroad isn’t easy, and everyday nuances can become overwhelming. Oftentimes, we think we are struggling alone but this group will help us connected people who are in similar situations and support each other to get better. This virtual group will make space for conversations around cultural differences and navigating our own identity. We will also discuss and identify coping strategies and resources that will help participants with their personal stressors (pandemic, cultural shock, identity issues, academic pressure, relationship issues, navigating US higher education system, etc).

Repose is an innovative holistic psychotherapy practice in the heart of Manhattan founded on the principle that wellness is an embodied healing journey that honors the inseparable connection between mind, body, and spirit. Our mission is to help you find your innate wisdom to cultivate resilience, gain clarity, and overcome challenges so that you may live with greater ease. We foster well-being as a way of life.

At Repose, we believe that you have both the capacity and the responsibility for your own evolution. We set the conditions for healing to occur by holding a safe space that allows for exploration, learning, and empowerment. Our role is that of guide, teacher, and companion as you embark upon the journey of your lifetime. We help you to find your way back to wellness.

Repose offers treatment for anxiety, trauma, loss and grief, OCD, relationship issues, parenting concerns, and more. We primarily work with adults although we have providers who work collaboratively with teens and parents. The team at Repose also has specialty training in treating couples, perinatal mental health, treating primary and secondary trauma (compassion fatigue or "burnout"), as well as considerable experience in working with college students. In fact, Repose is the preferred college mental health providers for NYU, SVA, Columbia University, FIT, and Fordham University.

We welcome individuals and couples, regardless of each client's background, orientation, and gender expression. It is our mission for our clients to gain a more compassionate, balanced understanding of themselves.
