I was born in the USA and moved to the UK just over a decade ago. You may notice my surname is Korean, I am of mixed-ethnic heritage - an important aspect of my identity. In 2017, I completed my professional training in London and have since worked with young people and for a nationally-recognized mental health charity (Mind). I am committed to professional development in order to enhance my way of working and have offered my professional skills for free to the NHS Talking Therapies services & the Trauma unit at Tavistock and Portman. With years of experience I have come to understand that therapy offers a way to create space for yourself. A transitional space for you to explore thoughts, feelings and experiences with an attentive professional who is trying to understand and appreciate who you are.
I aim to work from a place of curiosity and with an open mind to what you bring to therapy. Our purposeful exploration will aim to support you in making clearer decisions, encouraging confidence and feeling more satisfied in your relationships. My training has at its core an intention to understand relationships, including the relationship being established between you and me so that I may help you use the therapy relationship in a productive way.
I will listen carefully to what you bring and try to build with you an open and honest dialogue. If appropriate we can speak about your past experiences and how they might be impacting the present. And importantly, we can think together on how to move forward in a way that feels right for you.
Perhaps you don't need therapy but are interested in trying out therapy.
I am always open to an exploratory chat via telephone before booking an appointment, if you would like.

Currently, I am offering face-to-face work and online or telephone sessions.
If you feel meeting in person is the best option for you, please consider if you can travel to the appointment in a safe way (e.g., by car or walking).
I am having weekly covid tests to offer a safe space for you to attend.
