About

You don’t have to go through your quarter life crisis (or any crisis) alone… especially during a pandemic! In these unprecedented and uncertain times, you might be constantly worrying about the future or unsure of your place in the world. Maybe you keep comparing yourself to others and struggle with maintaining healthy relationships and setting boundaries at work and at home. Former ways of coping such as traveling and socializing with friends have come to an abrupt halt, and you might be having trouble finding new ways to manage your anxiety, depression, and unresolved trauma.
I specialize in immigrant & BIPOC populations and issues pertaining to: identity, cultural assimilation, differentiating from family, living authentically, coming out, spirituality, boundaries, codependency, and healthy relationships. I incorporate elements of EMDR, CBT, trauma-sensitive yoga, mindfulness, and trauma-focused talk therapy in English & Korean.
Practicing social distancing can be extremely lonely and isolating. But thanks to online therapy, you can still get the help you need and deserve. My goal is to provide a safe and nonjudgemental space to vent, process, and unpack trauma and heal old wounds so that you can unlock your fullest potential and live your best life.
