About My Clients
I specialize in working with people who hold an intersection of their identity that experiences oppression, racism, erasure, and marginalization. That may be your cultural identity, your sexual identity, or even the ways you are different from the family that raised you. And maybe you're struggling with your sense of self, a traumatic past, or unhealthy relationship patterns. Perhaps you feel out of control with depression and anxiety, and cultural tension. You are looking in the right place.
My Approach to Helping
Born and raised in South Korea, adjusting as a first generation immigrant, living abroad in Istabul, working in Madrid, finding roots in San Diego, I know that life is dynamic and is always a journey. Life is a perpetual journey of who you were, who you are, and who you are becoming, and I believe that we all have the power to influence that journey. I am Level 2 Trained in IFS, and through a process of internal exploration, I can support you in experiencing a journey of internal healing and harmony. Therapy can also help you transition from tension to peace. Whether it's intergenerational trauma, multicultural relationships tension, or identity connection, you can experience peace and healing.
Why I am a Good Fit for You
Healing lies in understanding the cultures, experiences, and beliefs that shape everyone to their present selves. I also believe that everyone can live a life reflective of what they love, desire, and prefer. Healing, peace, and wellness are available to every single one of us, individually and in our relationships. I value acceptance - a safe place where one can feel completely and utterly accepted for who they are, without any fear of judgment or condemnation. Therapy is a place to be embraced for who you are, not shamed. I also value mental health access to everyone, especially in communities where mental health is taboo. I use Internal Family Systems to support my clients in their own journeys of healing wounded parts and their inner child. If this aligns with you, contact me for a free initial consultation.
