About My Clients

You feel like you’ve tried everything to make your relationship work, and nothing seems to change. Try as you might, communication fails, tension builds, and once again you’re cycling back to the painfully familiar arguments that you had been avoiding in the first place. You’re finding yourself feeling stuck, lost, and alone. In working together, we can explore your underlying relational patterns and create the change in your relationship that you have been seeking.

My Background and Approach

I utilize the Restoration Therapy model to help people like you explore their relational patterns. I have received specialized training in this model to offer more targeted support to people navigating internal and interpersonal stress. In our work together, you can expect to be equipped with the tools to regulate your emotions, respond in relationally connecting ways, and create the change in your life that you have been seeking. I also use Brainspotting, a somatic-based therapy model, to incorporate your holistic self and make space for your body to also participate in your healing journey. I hope that in therapy, we can work toward unraveling your experiences of identity and safety and establish new relational pathways to grow into not just a more functional, but also a more fulfilling life. Let's work together to help you experience the relief and peace that you have been seeking.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that therapy is most impactful when approached with a holistic lens. People are complex, bio-psychosocial beings, and the wounds we carry can be equally complex, whether they are caused by interpersonal relationships or societal factors. It would be negligent for me not to invite all of who you are in the therapy room. That is why I also will bring all parts of myself to support you. As a Korean American who has grown up and lived in many countries, I will assist you to recognize and honor grief, explore racial trauma, and work toward healthy relationships. Therapy can be a vulnerable—even scary—place, and I applaud your courage in taking this step to seek help. It is my privilege and responsibility to create and hold this safe space for you, and you can be sure that I remain committed to growing professionally and personally as an anti-racist, inclusive person to better support you. Send me a message, and I am happy to offer a free 15-minute consultation.
