I’m a culturally affirming therapist of color specializing in trauma, bicultural identity issues and spiritual integration.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Austin, TX
I have a special bent toward helping those whose lives have been significantly shaped by their traumatic experiences. I utilize a wide range of mindfulness based practices, as well as Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), which is an extensively researched form of therapy that has helped countless individuals to make breakthroughs.
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.
I believe the integration of one's Christian faith can allow therapy to be more effective, which is something I myself have experienced in my own healing journey. But I welcome those from other faith backgrounds and completely respect those who wish to leave their faith at the door.
