Announcement icon Temporarily until I have more openings, I am not accepting new clients.
I will provide a safe and nurturing environment where individuals, couples and families can explore ways in which they are stuck and help them find a more fulfilling life. Whether I see an individual or an entire family, I use a relational, solution-focused and collaborative approach that respects and validates client strengths to find solutions. Being a Korean-American with first hand experience living in different countries, I bring a culturally-sensitive and non-judgmental approach.
My specialty is in working with couples and families in all phases of life although I also work with individuals with depression, anxiety, anger management challenges, emotion regulation difficulties or trauma. Many of my clients are bi-cultural and appreciate my sensitivity to a cultural view that is not mainstream.
My clients tell me that they appreciate how engaged and authentic I am with them in sessions. I understand that each person is unique in the way in which they interpret and experience the world. I honor and respect their point of view while seeking to introduce new and healthier ways of viewing, interpreting and therefore experiencing life.

Professional Connections

I have known Kyoung-Hi for over a year and in that time she has been proficient at helping families and couples in many ways. Her clinical skills are very strong and I feel that she is intuitive, professional and caring. As a care provider, I recommend her highly..

I highly recommend Kyoung-Hi to the most important people I know, my family and friends. She is a gifted clinician, a trusted collegue, and a wonderful friend. We attended our MFT master's program together and she was given the honor of being top student because of her intellect and caring and compassionate nature. She is still all that and more.
