About My Clients

On the outside you seem put together but in reality, you're constantly hearing the same negative voices replaying the message that you don't measure up. Perhaps you find yourself in a relationship where you don't even recognize your partner anymore. Or you’re simply burned out as a student, professional or a parent.

My Background and Approach

It’s important to me that I work with clients as a team while providing a safe, non-judgmental space as they share their broken past, present struggles and future hopes. My style has been described as warm and empathetic. I strive to help clients gain not merely insight, which can be freeing at first, but more importantly a genuine desire to change from within. I have a special bent toward helping those whose lives have been significantly shaped by their traumatic experiences. I utilize mindfulness based practices as well as EMDR, which is an extensively researched form of therapy that has helped countless individuals to make breakthroughs. My work as a therapist began in California where I received my M.A. in Clinical Psychology and worked extensively in community mental health since 2010 helping individuals to overcome chronic and debilitating issues.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I come from a unique background of spending my early childhood in South Korea and navigating the issues of adapting to a new culture after immigrating to the United States. I'm also passionate about raising awareness about the importance of therapy and destigmatizing mental illness in Asian American communities.
