Dr. Lim has been supporting children and families from the larger Portland area for over 10 years. During that time she has collaborated with schools, community agencies, pediatricians, occupational therapists, and speech and language pathologists to provide comprehensive behavioral health care to children and adolescents. She has worked at a variety of clinical settings including schools, hospitals, outpatient mental health clinics, and inpatient care agencies.
Dr. Lim grew up in Los Angeles, California and received her B.A. degree in Psychology from UCLA. She attended graduate school at the University of Oregon, where she received her doctorate degree in Counseling Psychology in 2007. She completed her pre-doctoral internship at the University of New Mexico’s Children’s Hospital. While the vitamin D in New Mexico was lovely, she was extremely happy to return to Oregon in 2008 to complete her post-doctoral fellowship at OHSU, where she received additional training in behavioral pediatrics.
Prior to beginning her own practice in 2020, Dr. Lim was part of a multi-disciplinary team at the Children's Program in Portland, Oregon where she provided psychological and evaluation services.
