Hello, 你好; this is Dr.Tom Su. I moved from China to the U.S. in 2012 for higher education and discovered my passion for Couple and Family Therapy. My primary scholarly and clinical interest is the relational well-being of both ethnic/racial minorities and sexual/gender minorities. I believe that the quality of life depends on the quality of our relationships. And to build better relationships, we need to study system, context, and narrative. Through my work, I hope to promote cultural sensitivity and cultural intelligence among intimate relationships, families, and communities.
