Thank you for your interest in my practice. I see therapy as a powerful two-person process of discovery and acceptance. In session we laugh, we cry, we understand and we grow. We read over the past, stay rooted in the present, and look forward to a more balanced and fulfilling future. My integrative approach to treatment is rooted in interpersonal psychodynamic theory, but also drives from other models to meet each person's unique needs. My areas of expertise include trauma work, college mental health, issues related to international relocation, cultural integration, study abroad, body-mind balance, and adoption .

I have been working for many years as a drama therapist and psychoanalyst and have helped people live more fulfilling lives. I work with individuals and couples in Greenwich Village. I am an expert on adoption issues but also work in all areas. I work well with couples and find all of my work interesting and exciting. Sometimes I use the drama therapy in combination with psychoanalysis and at other times, I just use the techniques of psychoanalysis. It will all depend on the patient.

In addition to adoption support groups, I specialize in working with couples to resolve differences and move forward with their lives and relationships.
People enter therapy looking for results and relief. I like to identify issues quickly and focus on alleviating distress. In addition to couples counseling and general practice with individuals, I run support groups for adoptive parents. Parenting is a challenge. Adoptive parenting has additional challenges. My groups offer a safe space to explore issues and receive support. I take great pleasure in engaging people and offering an environment that allows people to arrive at unique solutions to their lives. I work with individuals, couples and groups.

Trauma can be an invisible wound that can affect many parts of our lives we don't even realize. I work with clients with depression, anxiety, adoption triad concerns, and trauma related issues. Change can be hard. Having the courage to reach out and discuss your inner pain and anxiety is the first step. I want to help you work through your past painful experiences, feelings of shame, and traumatic events so that you can create a new life path.

Additional areas of specialty include infertility, adoption , and helping women navigate the complicated feelings they may be grappling with during and after their pregnancies.
At different times in our lives we can feel stuck and struggle with finding our way. Oftentimes, our usual ways of dealing with these struggles aren't helping or may even be preventing us from feeling better. I work with individuals who are dealing with loss and trauma, sadness and anxiety or having difficulties in relationships, work, school, parenting, and varying life-stage transitions. In this safe, supportive and warm environment we will work together to help you feel better while also understanding what is causing your distress.

During these difficult times nerves are often frayed and relationships can get testy. As old wounds and past traumas get stirred up, anxiety and depression might resurface. I work with LGBT and straight individuals and couples, striving to help people feel comfortable expressing their feelings and asserting their needs. I have advanced training in trauma, adoption , gay/lesbian and couple's therapy. I also have expertise treating the impact of parental divorce, substance abuse and immigration on adult-child relationships. An important goal is for you to gain more control of your issues and feel more confident in your decisions.

I often work with folks around the following topics: trauma, 

LGBTQIA+ identity, race, gender, emerging identities, life transitions, neurodiversity, and 
transracial/transnational adoption .
I’m passionate about supporting people along their healing journeys and paths of self-discovery. I don’t believe we seek out therapy because we are “flawed” or because we need to be “fixed.” Instead, I view therapy as a powerful act of self-care when navigating challenging systems, -isms, circumstances and relationships. My own lived experience as a neurodivergent Korean adoptee drives my commitment to practicing from a place that holds space for - and celebrates- each person’s multiple and intersecting identities.

In addition, I have a background in issues related to race, gender, adoption and other areas of difference.
Inevitably, we all encounter periods in our lives in which what we've learned to that point isn't sufficient for the challenges we now face. I believe therapy can be a rich environment in which to better understand ourselves and the world and to revisit what we want in life and how to get there. Whether you are dealing with significant anxiety or depression, or simply need a new environment to learn your way through new challenges with a helping eye and ear, I bring a creative, curious and open-minded approach to helping you progress through life's challenges.

Are you silently suffering by not using your voice? My therapeutic approach is to focus on helping you find the strength to use this voice and understand how anxiety might be getting in the way from you having the life that you want. Honoring your truth is the path to healing and creating healthy relationships. I will work with you to help reduce negative "self-talk" and better understand how anger, shame and guilt can actually help guide you to your authentic, more fulfilled self. Additionally, I have many years of experience in working with clients around the US and the globe via Tele-therapy.

On any given day, we can be impacted by people or events, creating ripples in our lives. But, the more deeply we connect with our own internal values and rhythms, the more solid our footing. With perception, humor and compassion, I value giving you the opportunity to safely explore your inner stories, fears and dreams. My hope is that you will find the validation, support and perspective necessary to create the change you so desire. I have extensive experience working with children, individuals and families with histories of trauma, facing difficult life transitions, such as creating and blending families, adoption , separation, divorce, death and loss.
