Hello - How can I help you? I work collaboratively with clients to define their goals and create hopeful outcomes. We will explore various aspects of the presenting issues, strong emotional reactions that accompany them, interpersonal relationships, and important life events and transitions. I view therapy as an invaluable opportunity to expand and deepen understanding about oneself that is evolving and to attune oneself to emerging life contexts. I believe that therapy strengthens a sense of agency as a person and enhances fulfillment in life experiences. I can conduct therapy sessions in Korean.

It is easy to feel hopeless in the middle of a new fight. It reminds you of a hundred fights that you and your partner have engaged in. Don't despair. There is hope. I see couples who feel stuck due to fighting or disconnection. Within a few sessions, most of my couples feel closer and fight less. Communication issues or infidelity are the two top areas that I work with. My clients have told me that they appreciate my gentle support, knowledge, and guidance. I use a mixture of two research-based approaches: The Gottman approach and Emotionally Focused Therapy. Both have been recognized as effective ways of treating couples.

How rapidly our world has changed. Working from home, constant interruptions, too many meetings by video, discipline, feeling unqualified for distance learning – we’re unprepared for this state of constant chaos. So many meals, demands, screen time, and lack of motivation leave no time for yourself. Irritable, edgy and exhausted, your patience is long gone. Your relationship suffers. Spinning thoughts about health, finances, family, loss of connection immobilize you. You’re running on empty. Individuals and couples - Look no further for someone who “gets” you.

I can help you look at the blocks that are keeping you from reaching your goals. To do this I use a Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT) approach as well as a Solution-Focused approach. I work holistically and see individuals as part of a family or other larger system.

How does anyone choose a therapist? The variety of options are daunting, and while many, many people have been to or go to a therapist, it is not a topic easily discussed, so it can be hard to find a recommendation. Many people resort to picking the person whose face looked nice, or went to a school they recognize, or work in a convenient location or accept their insurance. Often these techniques are sufficient, but when they are not it is a great loss, as it takes so much courage to look for a therapist in the first place.

Many people are feeling that life stressors, life transitions, relationships, their job, or extended family are creating high amounts of stress in their life. These things can make it difficult to focus, sleep, or find happiness in their life. Life is so busy and the daily news only increases everyone's stress level.

Through increasing self-awareness, cultivating our inner and external resources, and understanding the interconnected influences of mind and body in our daily lives, we can transform through painful times and arrive into greater and deeper capacity for relationships to ourselves and with others.
