Are you a survivor of trauma? If so, you may be experiencing a variety of signs or symptoms. They can be subtle, obvious, and/or debilitating - lasting weeks, months, or even years. Recovering from trauma takes time and everyone heals at their own pace. Working through trauma can be scary and painful, but you do not have to go through the process alone. I am a compassionate, empathetic, and patient clinician, committed to building a trusting professional relationship with you. Together we will work to lessen the hold trauma has on your life and help you heal.

Maybe you are coping with a stressful pregnancy? Or grappling with the loss of one? Are you postpartum, feeling unsure, worried, irritable, sad, unable to sleep even when the baby sleeps? Or perhaps, you are further along the parenting continuum, supporting your child through the various developmental stages - toddlerhood, adolescence and beyond. Is that meltdown normal? How do I help my daughter with difficult friendships? Is my teen's behavior typical? How do I tackle their constant internet use? Or maybe you simply want to empower yourself or your child with healthy emotional tools now to prevent potential issues later.

The most fascinating and important part of my job as a therapist is how to have a really good conversation. It may sound too simple, but it cuts to the heart of what to expect from therapy. Through good conversation, you experience connection and understanding. When we are understood, difficult feelings change with resulting freedoms to engage life. Trained both as a Marriage and Family therapist and a psychoanalyst, I work with complex relationship issues, divorce and blended families, depression, anxiety, addictions, men's issues, and sexual trauma recovery, and integration of psychology and faith/spirituality.

Do you go through life experiencing a relentless sense of urgency and hurry? Does it feel like there is always too much to do, not enough time, and like you are letting people down by not meeting perceived expectations? Does it feel like your family and friends have a tendency to leave you feeling bulldozed because you want to make everyone around you happy even if it is at the expense of yourself?

I love working with people who are focused on personal growth and healing. I enjoy helping clients understand their own story, which often results in changing their current narrative to one that is much more empowering. My hope is to see clients walk in greater freedom and see real changes happen in their life, while also enjoying this messy, yet beautiful process of healing as much as possible! I believe that as we grow in self awareness and develop a deeper sense of identity, that shame, disappointment and negative beliefs no longer have the same power over us and we can move toward a deeper sense of fulfillment in life.

I am currently practicing in Pasadena, CA and also work at a psychiatric facility serving the severely mentally ill and legally committed. As I'm originally from South Korea, cultural sensitivity is of importance. My view of human condition stems from a Zen concept of "suffering" and "transience of life." I believe that suffering is an inescapable human condition and yet a basis for growth. However, without inner strength, we may feel defeated by life challenges and erroneously think suffering will never end. I see my role as a guide to help you broaden your perspective and get you mobilized.

Often, when we are hurting, we don't know why. We think it might be work, or problems at home. It might be money, or worries about health. These vague, nameless feelings are sometimes softened just by feeling understood. Feeling better in the world, sometimes, is achieved by feeling deeper connections to others, feeling responded to rather than ignored, and just simply feeling that who you are is important to another human being. I believe that being seen, recognized, and having explanations that make sense, can improve your life, both on a deeper level, and on a day to day basis.
