Office of Student Life

Jing Wen Ong, M.A.

Therapeutic Style:

When working with a student, I strive to create a safe and compassionate space where they feel comfortable expressing their concerns and identities. I also value explorations on how intersecting identities and sociocultural contexts frame individual experiences, as well as systemic barriers that bring unique challenges to students. To accomplish these goals, I often use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy as a framework and integrate multicultural and strength-based approaches. Using these techniques allows me to discover their values and strengths as guiding forces to achieve meaningful goals and emotional well-being.

Professional Interests:

I have a general interest in various challenges and experiences of college students including cultural identity development and intersectionality, anxiety, trauma, and career exploration. Additionally, I enjoy working with international students, students of the LGBTQIA+ community, and first-generation college students.

I am multilingual (Mandarin, English, and Malay).

Groups and Liaison Roles:

I will be co-facilitating the International Graduate Student Group and the Reclaiming Self group.

Educational Background:

I earned my bachelor's degree in psychology from HELP University in Malaysia. I earned my master's degree in clinical psychology from the University of Central Florida. I am currently in the Psy.D. Clinical Psychology program at Georgia Southern University.

Personal Interests:
