As a school psychologist, Dr. Wong provided individual and group counseling to elementary school students and led multiple push-in social-emotional learning lessons in special education classrooms. She has consulted with teachers, parents, and other mental health providers (e.g., psychiatrists, social workers, school counselors, and case managers from adoption agencies) to create and implement individualized educational and behavioral interventions.
