Psychology Extern, Anxiety Disorders Center
Child Mind Institute

Debbie Chung, MS, is a psychology extern at the Child Mind Institute’s Anxiety Disorders Center. She is currently pursuing her doctoral degree in the combined clinical and school psychology program at Kean University, where she also obtained her master’s degree in school psychology. Debbie specializes in therapy for children, adolescents, and young adults dealing with anxiety-related disorders, trauma, mood disorders, behavioral challenges, and executive functioning concerns.

Drawing on evidence-based approaches, Debbie incorporates techniques rooted in cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and attachment-based approaches. She has experience working with various behavioral therapies, including trauma-focused CBT (TF-CBT), exposure and response prevention (ERP), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance commitment therapy (ACT), and habit reversal training (HRT). Committed to individualized, client-centered, empathic, and culturally sensitive care, Debbie tailors her approach to meet each client’s unique needs.
Before joining the Child Mind Institute, Debbie provided therapy, diagnostic assessments, and parenting work in outpatient clinical and school settings, including the Child and Family Institute in New York and the Nutley Public Schools district in Nutley, New Jersey. Debbie also has a focus on parenting work. She developed a research study on group therapy for parents with children facing psychological challenges at Kean University’s community mental health clinic. Additionally, as a former lab manager at the University of California, Irvine, she contributed to studies on attachment and interventions that enhanced parent-child relationships.

Debbie perceives therapy as a collaborative and transformative experience where clients can openly express themselves, acquire knowledge, and progress toward better well-being. Committed to fostering an empathic, secure, and personalized environment, she aims to help manage children’s and families’ difficulties while supporting their healing process.
