I am a Christian Counselor who is experienced in counsel individuals and couples with varies mood disorders (depression, anxiety) and relational issues.

Jasmine is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate, supervised by Barry Levit. Over the past 10 years, Jasmine has worked as a mental health counselor in many different settings including public and private schools, a community counseling center, church, and private practice. She provides services to individuals (ages 10 and up), couples, and families. Born and raised in China, Jasmine is a native Chinese speaker, speaks a dialect similar to Shanghainese, and is also fluent in English.
Jasmine met the Lord during her school years at the University of Pennsylvania, and found that the Word of God is powerful to mend, heal, and free sufferers. Because of this, she believes that a good therapist has to be a good listener who is also a trusted companion on a difficult life journey.
In this journey, she is eager to know her clients as who they are, to listen to their stories and to learn their goals. Her role is not to change her clients, but to empower them and lead them to the ultimate Helper for comfort and power to make lasting changes.
