Dr. Mote believes that therapy should be a life-affirming experience where one can share their struggles and their hopes in a space where they feel heard, valued, and supported. She helps clients on their path to self-discovery with compassion and a commitment to focusing on what matters most to each individual. She also acknowledges that self-discovery is often impacted by oppressive systems and things out of one’s control. Whether it’s adjusting to a “new normal” after becoming a parent or another major life transition, managing daily stressors, or developing new coping skills for mental health difficulties that have held one back from living the life that one wants, Dr. Mote is dedicated to helping her clients move forward and thrive.


In practice, Dr. Mote is a clinical psychologist who uses a variety of evidence-based, person-centered practices, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), to help clients live a life in line with their values. She specializes in working with adults with mood, anxiety, and psychosis-spectrum disorders, as well as those going through major life transitions. She welcomes the opportunity to work with new parents, including helping mothers with the difficulties and stress that can accompany the pregnancy and postpartum periods, and has received psychotherapy training provided by Postpartum Support International. As a former tenure-track professor, Dr. Mote also enjoys working with clients experiencing similar high-stress work environments. Informed by her research on emotion and social connection, she is dedicated to helping clients better understand how one’s feelings influence how we interact with the world and with others.


As a Korean-American woman, working parent, spouse, and international adoptee, Dr. Mote strives to create a supportive, inclusive environment for clients with multiple intersecting identities. She is committed to working within an anti-racist, cultural humility framework in her clinical work and research. She is an informed ally dedicated to supporting LGBTQIA+ and other marginalized communities. She is a polyamory-affirmative provider.


Dr. Mote provides telehealth psychotherapy services to those residing in Massachusetts. She provides out-of-network/self-pay services.
