Meet Xue Li, Intern
We are all aware that a wide range of factors in our lives can have an impact on our emotions. Examples include the biopsychosocial aspects of emotion, which include things like lack of sleep, stressful situations, pain, and illness, as well as cognitive processing, which includes both conscious and unconscious activities like perception, memory, and reasoning. Next, a crucial question arises: “How can we manage the dysregulated emotional state?”
To increase our effectiveness at work and in our personal relationships in order to better our long-term well-being and general health. The issue of managing the dysregulated emotional state thus becomes vital. My interest and passion in understanding emotions, how people may better process and control their emotions, and how to support those going through an emotional crisis have become more aware.

In my sessions, I use a number of therapeutic strategies to assist people to reframe negative thought patterns, acquiring relaxation techniques to help them calm down, empowering them to stay strong during emotional crises, and creating their own coping mechanisms.
In order to enable people to develop resilience and make more thoughtful decisions in life, I want to create a professional and safe environment where people may express their overwhelming emotions in a way that is more manageable. Depending on the patient's presenting concerns and treatment objectives, I use an evidence-based, individualized approach and integration model in my practice, incorporating several therapeutic modalities like CBT, DBT, ACT, and MI in treatment intervention, which allow people to identify, express, and work on their emotions.
