Dr. Phylice Lim hails from Malaysia. She earned her doctorate in clinical psychology at Northern Illinois University where she studied posttrauma mental health including resilience and meaning-making strategies. Subsequently, she completed an APA accredited internship at the St. Louis Psychological Internship Consortium, followed by a year-long postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Missouri-St. Louis Center for Behavioral Health. Her clinical experiences span across inpatient, IOP/PHP, outpatient, forensic, and university settings. Broadly speaking, her interests include working with trauma, anxiety, mood issues, and interpersonal problems. Dr. Lim is also interested in working with individuals from various marginalized backgrounds including international students. She currently serves as the CAPS liaison to the UCLA Dashew Center. She is fluent in Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese, and Malay. Understanding that each individual presents with a unique set of background and concern, Dr. Lim uses empirically-supported treatments (e.g., cognitive-behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy) in an integrative manner in order to best meet students’ needs. In therapy, she is interested in collaborating with students to make meaning out of their life experiences, discover their inner potential, and accomplish personal growth.
