Professional statement

Dr. Pei-Han Cheng is a licensed psychologist in Midtown, specializing in relationship issues, career counseling, eating concerns and body image, and multicultural challenges. She earned her Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Columbia University, and had an intensive training in psychodynamic therapy, multicultural psychology, mindfulness, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).

Dr. Cheng has developed a specialty in eating concerns and body image since her post-doctoral fellowship in the Eating Concerns Collaborative Treatment Team at the University of Pennsylvania. She helps clients understand the underlying cause of their actions and develop a healthier relationship with food.

With career counseling, Dr. Cheng is collaborative, strength-based, and solution-focused towards supporting clients identity their dream career and take proactive steps toward career goals. Her most rewarding work is supporting women in balancing work and life, managing different roles and workplace discrimination.

In addition to her clinical work, Dr. Cheng is an Assistant Professor at Brooklyn College and a consultant on diversity and inclusivity for organizations. She is very passionate about supporting international individuals, first-generation Americans, and Asians/Asian Americans as they work through cross-cultural challenges, including grappling with different cultural expectations and developing their own unique identity.
