In my practice, I offer support and guidance with responsiveness, empathy, creativity, and psychological insight to children/teens, adults, families, and couples as you face life's difficulties and transitions. As your therapist, my job is to help you tap into the limitless storehouse of resilience inside of you and your innate ability to heal, move towards health and wholeness, and not just survive, but thrive in this world. Together, we can transform the poison in your life into the medicine of wisdom and compassion.

My clinical experiences include: domestic violence and sexual assault shelter; Veterans Affairs medical center; community mental health and psychological services agency; high school and middle school settings; residential, partial hospitalization, intensive, and outpatient treatment programs for eating disorders; and private practice affiliated with the Korean American Psychological Association in Los Angeles, CA.

I am also a registered drama therapist (RDT) and a certified Developmental Transformations (DvT) practitioner and often use action-oriented and interactive methods when appropriate to help you take the courageous action to face and challenge your pain and suffering, and channel your fullest potential in order to create a joyful and fulfilling life.
