Do you find yourself stuck in a loop of self-criticism? Maybe you feel you are never enough or not accepted. Sometimes might you think that your overwhelming past experiences will never leave you. You might be exhausted from carrying the guilt and shame you don’t know how to talk about. Difficult feelings can impact all aspects of life and limit your possibilities. As a Korean-Canadian Psychologist with many intersecting identities, I also understand many challenges faced by BIPOC & LGBTQ+ communities. Your needs matter. You deserve to be recognized and honored. I will meet you with care and warmth to help you move toward healing.

As a somatic & compassion-focused therapist, I believe your ways of coping have protected and served you. I offer a space for you to explore your story & struggles, such as with self-esteem, abuse, and trauma. We will nurture your emotions, body, and self-compassion to help you embody your innate strengths. You can create new patterns that serve you better.

Therapy is a collaborative process; you will be empowered to exercise your voice and agency. I will show up as another human being and meet you with humor and gentle guidance. You can learn to trust yourself and face barriers with courage. You can quiet your critical voice and feel light, energized, and free. Email today to book a free consultation.
