About Us

Dr. YONG, Minglee (Ph.D., BCBA)

child Psychologist

I am a registered psychologist in Singapore and I specialized in working with children, young adults, and their families. I have more than 20 years of experience providing psychological services in various settings, including schools, clinics, community agencies, and private practice, both in Singapore and the United States.

I received training both as a school psychologist and a clinical psychologist in Singapore and the United States. I am a licensed psychologist (WA, USA) and I obtained my Ph.D. in School Psychology from the University of Washington. I completed my internship and postdoctoral fellowship in clinical child psychology at Ryther Child Center in Seattle, a treatment center for children and adolescents with histories of abuse, trauma, and mental illness. I am also Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and completed my training in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) at Seattle Children’s Autism Center, Experimental Education Unit (EEU), and Early Intervention Specialist, Inc.

At My Wellness Care, I conduct comprehensive psychoeducational and psychological evaluations for diagnostic purposes, intervention planning, and learning and exams accommodations. I also provide therapeutic intervention for a wide range of emotional and behavioral challenges, including anxiety, depression, trauma, school refusal, selective mutism, ADHD-related or impulse-control behavioral problems, compulsive behaviors, as well as comorbid of these challenges with various neurodevelopmental disorders.

My approach in therapy involves working collaboratively with clients and familiies, respecting family culture and needs, increasing understanding about self, applying skills in daily living, and building resilience through social relationships and positive self-esteem. Individual intervention plans  are formulated to actively involve the clients and their families and they are grounded in evidence-based cognitive-behavioral principles and include mindfulness, acceptance, and compassion perspectives and strategies. Because I work with young people, my goal is to help my clients learn adaptive coping skills through regular practice. Together, we work toward a trajectory of positive development.
