Announcement icon I offer both phone and video sessions, including for new patients who want to start therapy during the time of Covid-19.
I am a psychotherapist with over 15 years of experience. I see individuals from diverse backgrounds, including, but not limited to, Asian Americans with family or relationship problems, career difficulties, racial issues, maternity or parenting challenges, grief, trauma, and acculturation. Difficult life transitions may result in depression, anxiety, and feeling stuck. Early attachment issues and intergenerational trauma can complicate present day life. With cross-cultural awareness, I recognize the varied dimensions of communication and intimacy in intercultural couples, and help them to build informed empathy and mutual respect.
I provide a secure space where people can experience deep self understanding. I pay attention to unconscious life patterns (unwanted history that repeats in the current) and help them to work through with new perspectives. Through this dyadic exploration and active listening, they gain inner clarities, emotional authenticity and a capacity to make choices.
I am an integrative therapist, combining a psychoanalytic psychotherapy with other contemporary modalities, including art therapy, mindfulness. experiential trauma focused approaches. I am also a senior psychoanalysis candidate, currently training at Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Study Center. I speak Korean and English.
