My approach to therapy is one that encompasses meeting you where you are, working towards the life that you would like to live. I approach from a non-judgmental stance and an openness to the way in which you experience life.
As a Korean-American (adoptee) it is a joy to work with adoptees, immigrants and other BIPOC individuals who are struggling with what or how they “fit” within society. I have been working within a Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT) theoretically orientation for the past five years, and prior to that had worked in-home therapy (ARMHS), intensive outpatient (IOP) and inpatient therapy programs, so I have experienced mental health from various approaches and levels of care. With this experience, I am confident that we can find what will be most effective in guiding you through the struggles that you are facing together.
