About My Clients

My experience consists of completing an internship at Good Samaritan Mental Health, child and family services, working with combat and sexually assaulted or abused veterans at the Veteran Affairs in addressing their traumas (I myself grew up as a military brat and served), providing social work to the aging, and I have currently opened up my own practice in Tumwater, Washington. I am opened to serving teens and adults for counseling. Furthermore, I am bilingual and can speak Korean fluently.

My Background and Approach

I am trained to provide Accelerated Resolution Therapy. I also believe individual's thoughts can effect their emotions which results in how they may respond to certain situations therefore, I provide cognitive behavioral therapy as well as solution-focused therapy in helping clients navigate and weigh their options to make the best decision in moving forward in their lives. I also believe in the attachment theory and attachment styles which are developed from childhood and carried through adulthood but the wonderful thing is the attachment styles can be changed. Mindfulness is also often talked about in my sessions since I feel having the skills of being present is so important to fully enjoy the beauty of life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe healing comes from resolving core, deep rooted issues rather than just placing a band aid on the presenting wounds.
