Welcome! Seeking therapy takes courage. In this process of searching for a therapist, you are taking the most important and powerful step towards healing and growth. I offer support to individuals and couples experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship and parenting issues, racial identity, cultural conflict, and more. My journey as a psychotherapist began with my own experience of navigating my mental health and bicultural identity as a first-generation Korean American woman, partner, and mother. This valuable lived experience has added to my training as a therapist in understanding the significance of culture that informs the way we experience suffering and pain.

In my practice, I collaborate with clients to determine the right therapeutic approach, drawing from attachment-based, interpersonal, trauma-informed and culturally sensitive orientations. This means that we lean into what happened (not what’s wrong with you) in your childhood, past relationships, and cultural context to accurately understand your present struggles. Much of our emotional pain is created in relationships. These wounds can also be healed in relationships. This is why I believe that much of the success in therapy depends on our therapeutic relationship. My hope is that my authentic self I bring to our work and the trust and connection we build in our relationship facilitate this healing process. Change and growth can be hard but together, we co-create a safe space to slow down your mind, lean into “what happened” with gentle curiosity, learn to anchor yourself in your body as we explore ways to make changes that feel more sustainable and aligned with who you are.
