Maybe you never feel enough, and what "enough" even looks like may feel uncertain. You might be exhausted from feeling the guilt and shame you don't know how to talk about. Perhaps you think your overwhelming past experiences will never leave you. I work with folks who long to accept and connect with themselves & others but feel stuck and in a loop of self-criticism. As a Korean-Canadian Psychologist with many intersecting identities, I also understand and work with many personal and systemic challenges faced by BIPOC & LGBTQ+ communities. I offer care, skills, and insights to support your growth and discovery of new possibilities.
As a somatic & compassion-focused therapist, I believe that all coping strategies are your mind & body's way of protecting you, but some may no longer meet your needs. Exploring self-esteem, anxiety, and trauma, among other issues, we will nurture your whole self to help you reclaim and embody your innate strengths to find new patterns that serve you better.
Therapy is a collaborative process. Your agency and voice will be empowered, as I show up as another human and meet you with humour and gentle guidance. You and your needs will be seen and honoured as you learn to trust yourself and overcome difficulties. You can soothe your critical voice and feel light, energized, and free. Book a free consultation today.
