Helen Wu is a Clinical Psychologist at Hamm clinic. She completed her Ph.D. at St. John’s University Clinical Psychology program. She currently sees clients for individual and couples therapy. Previously, she has co-led groups, and participated in the triage and intake process.

Helen operates from an integrative and person-centered model. She believes that it is important to understand one’s clients in a comprehensive way that accounts for biopsychosocial processes. This encompasses biological make up, early developmental experiences, sense of self, beliefs about others, interpersonal patterns, conscious and unconscious processes. Helen bases her interventions on what clients’ goals and values are and their readiness for change, while keeping in mind whatever realistic limitations they may have. Helen believes clients change when their experiences are understood. This allows them to grieve the past and live a fuller life in the present and the future.

Helen is interested in the topics of identity, personality, and interpersonal relationships. She has training in psychodynamic therapy and CBT. She also has exposure to Motivational Interviewing and DBT. Previously, Helen has worked in: community clinics, general inpatient, psychoanalytic institutes, CBT practicums, middle school settings, as well as with Recovery Model group therapy, skills groups, and process groups.
