People commonly say life is a journey full of ups and downs. At moments it leaves us lost, trapped, afraid, or in pain. Sadly, we do not always have the help or the resources to get through these moments due to various circumstances in our life. Therapy is not a fix-all solution to our problems, but it can be the catalyst to taking steps out of what can feel like a bottomless pit. It can be the change that will open paths that we did not even realize were there or take on paths that we believed were too difficult for us to traverse. I hope that I can be a steadfast presence for support through whatever you are experiencing and help you find your path through the darkest of valleys.
First and foremost, I am focused on creating a space where you feel heard and understood. A place where you can come without feeling judged and be who you are. I strive to make this a foundation for our client-therapist relationship. From there, I am committed to finding a therapeutic approach that best fits you and helps you experience the most growth. I value a person-centered approach while using acceptance and commitment (ACT) and cognitive-behavioral frameworks. I focus on helping you understand the patterns of your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors so that you can discover new ways to elicit change and cope with overwhelming experiences. I also look for ways to incorporate elements of experiential therapies whenever possible to provide another powerful avenue of emotional expression. I am a 2nd generation Korean-American and connect with the cultural dynamics that play into this unique bi-cultural background of growing up with 1st generation immigrant parents at home and a western American environment outside.
If you are looking for help in navigating through life's struggles, please do not hesitate to reach out. We can work on making this a critical step toward finding change, healing, and peace.
