I practice psychodynamic therapy with adults facing depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, relationship problems, and personality disorders .
"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.

Additionally, my work includes individuals diagnosed with ADHD as well as personality disorders .
Psychotherapy has a lot to offer to people at any stage in their lives, particularly when they’re going through challenging times. Challenges arise from things that are out of our control and from trauma that we hold from past experiences. Many times, we’re not even aware of what got us to what we are experiencing in the present moment. We’re “stuck” and we don’t know why or we may not even realize we’re “stuck”.

My interest is working with people suffering with developmental trauma, depression, anxiety, personality disorders , coping with daily life stress and parenting and family issues.
"The pain is there; when you close one door on it, it knocks to come in somewhere else..." (Dr. Irvin D. Yalom). The process of psychotherapy is uncovering the pain, either developmental, situation specific or just existential, and working through it within the bounds of a trusting, accepting and empathetic therapeutic relationship. Throughout the process, I will help you uncover and become comfortable with your authentic self, while bringing into the consciousness some of the themes and motives that have unconsciously ruled your life and became a part of who you are.

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.

Mental health challenges are due to the aftereffects of traumatic experiences. Trauma can place a strain on your family, work, relationships, and even cause issues with self-worth. I specialize in trauma therapy along with treating personality disorders , depression, mood disorders, anxiety, and addiction. All these disorders can look different from person to person, and that is where our therapeutic journey of empowerment and self-exploration begins. I concentrate on creating a safe space of growth and self-discovery through unconditional positive regard, emotional regulation, and guided activities.

What is it that has brought you to seek out therapy? If it is because you are looking for someone to provide a safe validating space to feel heard, to learn to take control of your emotions, to change problematic behaviors, learn effective coping mechanisms, process grief, move on from what no longer serves you, solve a problem, or even figure out what the problem is, I can help. Whatever symptoms you are experiencing, they are there to communicate something to you. I can help identify what that is, and what to do with that information.

I practice a holistic approach as emotions and behaviors are not only related to external environment and experiences, but are influenced by overall wellbeing. We function best when our bodies and brains are healthy and well balanced. My work with children and adolescents has informed my practice with adults as early experiences influence adult perceptions and decisions. I practice with a developmental perspective. My initial career in nursing informs my perspective to treat body, mind and spirit as a whole. Along with adult psychotherapy, I am committed to children and adolescents who are experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, and learning difficulties.

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.

My clients are sophisticated, insightful, and curious about themselves and others. Yet they may have found themselves feeling chronically depressed, anxious, or lost in life, and they might struggle with long-term patterns in their lives and relationships that they just can’t seem to change. Perhaps they have struggled with trauma or other experiences, thoughts, and feelings they fear nobody would understand. I enjoy working with people who desire not just new insights into their mind, but also a new way of experiencing themselves and others.

Childhood trauma can cripple us, it creates overpowering ‘intense’ emotions such as anxiety, depression, and anger when left unattended which begins to create physical symptoms to defend our bodies from the internal wounds. Has there ever been a time in your life where you have experienced this reaction? Are you experiencing these feelings based on current or past trauma from childhood, early teens, adolescence, adulthood, or as a senior? I aim to utilize a variety of actionable techniques to help reduce trauma related symptoms and make lasting changes in life.

What type of Pasadena mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Pasadena?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
