Manrou (Mandy) Zhen
Associate Psychotherapist, Intake Coordinator & Consultant
I earned my master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Massachusetts Boston. I strive to provide a warm, compassionate, and collaborative space for clients from all walks of life. I utilize person-centered, strength-based, and eclectic approaches to my work with clients. It’s an honor to be able to listen to clients’ stories and be a companion on their unique journey of finding self and meaning.
I immigrated to the US with my family in elementary school, and the difficulties we experienced navigating life in America helped me relate to the challenges many clients face. Before receiving my master’s degree, I worked as an interpreter and case manager at a community health center in the behavioral health department, where I provided interpretation for Cantonese, Toisanese, and Mandarin-speaking clients. In my free time, I enjoy watching dramas and variety shows, trying new recipes, and learning new languages.
