What is your approach to therapy?
I believe the goal of therapy is for the client to feel seen and understood, and that every individual has the capacity for growth and change. By developing a caring, empathic and trusting relationship with my clients, it becomes possible for the individual to make connections, deepen his/her awareness and gain clarity about relationships, problems and personal patterns. It is through this process that growth and change can be made. We will engage in a primarily strength-based and insight-oriented process.
In my work with couples, I employ Emotional Focused Therapy. The following link will provide you with a brief summary of studies on EFT research: www.iceeft.com/images/PDFs/EFTResearch.pdf
What types of issues do you address?
I commonly treat individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, grief, high conflict marriage/partner dynamics, life stage transitions, trauma, bipolar, and schizophrenia.
How do you incorporate yoga into your treatment plan? There is current empirical research on yoga as an effective, complementary, clinical intervention for anxiety and depression. For those clients that are interested in having yoga incorporated into their sessions, I like to focus on the 3 major components of yoga: breath work, physical postures, and meditation.
What are your fees?
My fee is $125 for a 50 minute session.
Do you offer a sliding scale?
Can you provide therapy in another language?
Yes, I am fluent in Korean.
Do you accept insurance? I accept Anthem EAP. I am also an out-of-network provider, which means I do not bill insurance companies directly. Your therapy services may be eligible for reimbursement through out-of-network benefits, medical spending or health care savings accounts. If you are interested in using your health insurance, please call your insurance provider to inquire about reimbursement for out-of-network counseling services.
What are your hours?
I am available mornings through mid-afternoon Monday-Friday, and on Saturdays.
