Bio

(*I provide a free 15 mins consultation. Feel free to contact me to check if we are a good fit.)

I’ve been working with adult children of immigrants and multicultural/interracial couples who struggle with anxiety, depression, relationship issue, adults’ ADHD, boundaries issues, and trauma in therapy, I collaborate with my clients on finding effective ways of communication, changing irrational beliefs, learning/setting healthier boundaries, and identifying/expressing emotions. I try to assist them to interpret their issues from different angles. Although it can be challenging to achieve our therapeutic goals, I trust that my clients can work through this journey because they’re resilient and strong.

 

The most important thing is making sure my clients feel understood. That is why I have a passion to support clients to reconnect to themselves by analyzing their reality and patterns. I also assist clients to practice redefining themselves and re-establising healthier behavioral and emotional patterns based on CBT, Gottman, Attachment & Family system lenses.

 

You’re not alone. I understand that we sometimes may feel like we have nothing or nobody in our lives. It makes us feel like we are walking alone through a long and dark tunnel. I also understand what therapy means to you and what challenges you could be facing. You make the first step on this journey. I believe that therapy can be a lamplight to navigate your paths to get out. Together, we can strengthen your tools to reconnect with yourself and your environment.

 

*한국어 상담 제공합니다.

인생을 살면서 홀로 끝이 보이지 않는 긴 터널을 걷는 것처럼 느껴질 때가 있습니다. 그 긴 터널 속에서의 방황은 내 자신을 잃어버린 것처럼 느끼거나, 혹은 내 자신을 더 힘든 상황에 처하게도 합니다. 저는 한국어 상담을 통해 여러분이 찾고자 하는 인생의 방향과 마음의 치유를 함께 걸어가고 싶습니다. 불안, 우울, 중독, 가족 및 연인 간의 문화 갈등, 직장 또는 새 문화의 적응 문제 등에 관하여 인지행동심리학, 애착심리학, 그리고 가족관계 심리학을 바탕으로 한국어 상담을 제공하고 있습니다. 여러분은 혼자가 아닙니다. 한국 문화와 미국문화의 이해를 바탕으로,  여러분이 겪고 있는 현재의 어려움과 갈등을 조금이나마 완화시킬 수 있도록 도와드리고 싶습니다.
