Abstract Background


Licensed Clinical Psychologist (Specialty in Neuropsychology)

Speaks Cantonese and Mandarin

Dr. Elizabeth Choi is a licensed clinical psychologist (PSY33916) in California. She earned her PhD in Clinical Psychology with an area of emphasis in Neuropsychology from Palo Alto University. She received specialized postdoctoral training in neuropsychology at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF)/ Zuckerberg San Francisco General, and residency training in neurorehabilitation and complex medical health psychology at New York University (NYU) Rusk Rehabilitation. 


Prior to coming to the U.S., Dr. Choi worked at the general hospital’s psychiatry and medical units as a registered psychologist in Hong Kong.


Dr. Choi has expertise in treating mood and behavioral symptoms arising from neurological disorders (stroke, traumatic brain injuries, concussion, and cancer). She also treats anxiety, depression, and trauma. Her sessions are a safe space to address immigration, race-based and intergenerational trauma, explore the triumphs and challenges of cultural transitions and adaptation, and facilitate the emergence of identities in a new country. Her approaches include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). 


Dr. Choi is a neuropsychologist, a specialist in the relationship between brain function, behaviors, and emotions. She provides evidence-based psychodiagnostic and psychological assessments at Banyan Behavioral Health. In addition to regular psychotherapy, Dr. Choi also offers 1) cognitive remediation (compensatory strategies for attention, memory, and executive functioning) when indicated by a neuropsychological evaluation from an outside provider; and 2) health psychology sessions where she helps clients with brain injuries enhance their coping and adjustment to cognitive and emotional changes, and maximize strengths to improve their quality of life after brain injuries. 


Dr. Choi’s doctoral research at the Stanford Brain Stimulation Lab examined depression, brain connectivity, and cardiac health. Her current research focuses on interventions targeting fatigue and cognitive changes in neurologically progressive disorders.
