I am a junior undergraduate at Adelphi University completing my BA degree in Psychology and interning part-time at SelfWorks. I am also an international student from Jakarta, Indonesia. My research interests include the study of empathy, the forging of human connections, and the effects of long-term isolation on mental health. In Fall 2022, I will be conducting research on the effects of quarantine and pandemic stressors on the mental health of adults. I have always pursued research in how community support and inclusion can affect someone’s approach to healing. I am also deeply fascinated by the paradigms of diagnosis and how they shift with our understanding of the human condition. I understand that there are many directions a person can come from towards improvement. I believe that therapy can be an incredibly versatile tool that improves, sustains, and maintains a better self.
I will be graduating Adelphi University in Fall 2024 and plan to pursue a doctorate in clinical psychology. My ultimate goal is to be a practitioner in mental health counseling that can offer support to clients from many diverse backgrounds universally while at the same time celebrating their differences in each others’ journeys.
