Prior to earning a master’s degree in social work from The University of Cincinnati, Chae earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature from Miami University and worked as a mental health case manager. She continued to work in the mental health field in various roles as she completed her master’s program, gaining invaluable experience.

She has expertise in addictions and trauma. She incorporates EMDR, CBT, DBT, and ACT into her mindful, body-centric and holistic therapeutic approach. As a lifetime learner, her areas of interest are expansive and ever-growing. They include, but are not limited to, serving the LGBTQ+ community, adult ADHD, chronic and invisible medical conditions, perimenopause, relationship issues (boundaries and communication), body image, and religious trauma.
