About

As a clinical psychologist/psychoanalyst with a specialized focus on children, adolescents, adults, and families, I accompany my clients in meeting their personal goals and in improving relationships.I am particularly sensitive to multicultural issues and I work collaboratively with each client based on their specific needs. I specialize in different forms of psychotherapy, including cognitive-behavioral therapy and psycho-dynamic therapy. I also work with individual patients using EMDR, a therapeutic technique to clear traumatic experiences which get "stuck" in emotions, body and brain and cause symptoms which bring clients into therapy.
Through therapy, people learn about themselves. They discover ways to overcome difficulties, develop inner strengths or skills, or make changes in themselves or their situations. Often, it feels good just to have a person to vent to, and other times it's useful to learn different techniques to help deal with stress.
I have a specific interest in working with individuals who have experienced problems related to immigration and acculturation.I also have an extensive experience evaluating and working with children with disabilities and emotional disturbance. I specialize in testing (e.g., intelligence, educational, dementia, aptitude, personality (MBTI, Enneagram). I am fully bilingual (English/Korean).
