You already possess the inner resources and capacity needed to heal. At certain times, however, we all need help gaining access to that nurturing capacity: a kind of 'Assisted Self Discovery.' When our minds, bodies, & emotions are all supported together in a safe process of present-oriented exploration, the potential for change is remarkable. I utilize an eclectic approach. Each session is tailored to your unique needs & personal goals. Long-lasting symptom relief/decreased suffering & achieving a more fulfilling life are priorities that guide my work with clients.

"How we do anything is how we do everything." We move through life in a distinct way that was shaped before we can remember, reinforces itself everyday, and inevitably leads to the same problems despite our best efforts to change. Do anxiety and depression color your everyday experience? Has addiction taken hold of your life? Do you struggle to build satisfying relationships? Through courageous self-exploration, I can help you find compassion for yourself and come to understand why you encounter the same issues again and again. Building this understanding and taking responsibility for your life can empower you to heal and grow.

I specialize working with children (6-10yo), tweens (10-12yo) teens (13-19yo), young adults (19-30yo), and adults (over 30yo). The onset of puberty can trigger underlying depression and anxiety that are difficult to treat and can stay with a person for life. I treat children on the autism spectrum (ASD), the LGBTQIA+ population (particularly transgender and gender fluid youth), and adults and children with PTSD.

Life is busy and you’re overwhelmed with multiple responsibilities. You’re somehow managing to keep your head above water, though you’re unsure how. You’re known for your intelligence, being the “reliable one,” and the “go-to” for problem-solving, but you don’t have the same confidence in yourself that others do! Your complicated history and self-defeating thoughts would likely be helped by therapy, but you are hesitant because you don’t think you can fit weekly therapy into your schedule.

Language & words matter. We define ourselves & our worldview with our words. How do we talk to ourselves? Who or what does our inner-critic or inner-saboteur sound like? Sometimes the layers of “shoulds” in life make us feel trapped, but therapy can offer space to help untangle & deconstruct the “shoulds” to see where they are coming from. The story/stories we choose to tell ourselves & others - that we take to be true - are not always true, or may be distracting us from other possible truths. Noticing & highlighting less visible narratives that align with our truest values can open up new portals & even preferred ways of being.

Therapy is powerful. For many people, including myself, initially, it is a place we come to when we need to figure something out or “fix” something. Or when we are just super overwhelmed. But over time, therapy often becomes a portal to a new world. A world where we get to explore our psyche and Soul and appreciate the beauty and wonder of it, shadows and all.

Despite sharing the same interests with your partner, do misunderstandings arise often? Or do you simply want to improve your relationship, your communication, or your sex life? Maybe you want to know and appreciate your partner more deeply.

Are you having trouble changing your habits? Are you frustrated because you keep repeating the same patterns in your life? Many factors, such as underlying emotional issues, stress, or how you think about yourself and your life can be barriers to changing and living more healthfully. As a licensed clinical psychologist and a former registered dietitian, with a master's degree in theology, I can help you from a holistic perspective, addressing issues that affect mind, body, and spirit as they relate to your specific goals. I believe that deep listening and empathy are foundational for self-understanding and change.

Asking for help is not always easy. Whether you are trying to navigate a difficult relationship, deepen an existing one, or if you find yourself in a place where you feel "stuck", we can work to equip you with tools to help your particular situation. The majority of my clients say therapy helped them increase their self-awareness and communication skills, reduce stress, have less anxiety, and have an increased ability to deal emotions. I specialize in work with individuals and couples around anxiety, depression, and relationship issues. I also specialize in group therapy and currently have openings my Thursday evening group at 6pm.

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.

"Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony." -Mahatma Gandhi. Stress, anxiety, interpersonal relationships issues, life transitions, low self-esteem and depression can all contribute to disharmony to our lives. I personalize different therapy models to cater to my client's individual needs to support the healing process and improve balance in their lives despite the circumstances.

CORONA VIRUS UPDATE: For 2021 my main focus is to help people affected by the unprecedented affects and after affects of this pandemic. If you read my blog, you will see how this pandemic affected me and my family. In California we saw the largest surge of this virus and every day we were bombarded with horrific news, news interviews with families that have lost loved ones or lost their business, and how the stay at home mandate has affected our physical and mental health. You do not need to feel alone, hopeless, scared, and lost. My personal story and skills bring an awareness and empathy perhaps not understood by many.

Has trauma, anxiety, or depression interfered with the potential to become the best version of yourself? We often feel defined by traumatic or emotionally difficult experiences then often leave us feeling stuck in place rather than moving forward towards our goals. I’m here to provide a safe, affirming space for you to develop an understanding of yourself to overcome past experiences or fears that define you. Our work together will be met with unconditional acceptance, creative approaches, and the utmost compassion.

If you find yourself living without a navigation system to understand emotional terrain or trauma that impacts your well-being; you are not alone. All of us go through rough patches in our lives.

In everyone's life, some heartache will happen. Some days, the things we do to cope with stress no longer work as well as they once did; other days, it may feel like everything is falling apart. No matter what your struggle is, we will work together to understand the source of your problems and develop practical strategies to reach your goals. In your first session, we will begin to answer the question, "What would help look like right now?" and help you cultivate and develop tools you may not even know you had within your reach.

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.
