Lauren Mai, Psy.D.

Lauren Mai, Psy.D., was a refugee at 7 months old when my parents escaped Vietnam by boat. I came to America when at age 2 and was fortunate to learn to read, write, and speak Vietnamese as I grew up in southern California. At a young age, I knew my life’s work would revolve around the history, trauma, and well-being of this group. Throughout college, graduate school, and clinical rotations, I was constantly reminded of how invisible Vietnamese were in the world of psychology. I wanted to make a difference (cliche, I know!) and work with underserved, underrepresented groups. I chose rotations with Vietnamese patients and neuropsychological training. I am a staff neuropsychologist at ZSFG/UCSF. Out of wanting to provide access to Vietnamese patients, I also see Vietnamese patients for psychotherapy. Being part of this group allows me to support and feel supported to work towards a personal and professional goal of helping the Vietnamese community. I hope to build/create resources to improve the quality of our care for individuals of Asian backgrounds.
