Hwaiting (화이팅), which is a Korean phrase that is phonetically alike to the English word
“fighting” best translates as, keep going or keep fighting on. This concept exists within all of us.
We experience the glimmers of hwaiting when trying to reach our goals to the hardship
moments when we need empowerment, support, drive, and motivation. In our therapeutic
space, I hope to evoke this sense of hwaiting as an underlying motto in our work, as we
navigate your therapeutic journey in healing, understanding, and exploration.

As a female-identifying Korean American with an immigrant background, I have a particular
affinity in exploring the ways different identities play a role in cultivating unique experiences. In
the therapeutic space, I hope to explore with you the distinctive and intersectional ways diverse
identities mold your person and makes you into, well, You.

Mental health areas I hope to work with you in our therapy space together include: life
transitions, burnout/stress, anxiety, depression, PTSD, racialized trauma, minority stressors,
LGBTQIA+ identity exploration, women-related issues, relationship issues, grief and loss,
addiction disorders, and eating disorders.

While addressing such needs, I hope to implement a multiculturally-sensitive and inclusive
framework in our work together, which has been an integral component to my education and
training that I’ve gained from my B.A. in Psychology at the University of San Francisco and my
current M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling education at Northwestern University.

As we collaborate together in the therapy space, I hope to bring you a safe, warm, and affirming
environment as we tailor the right treatment catered to uniquely fit your needs. Therapy
approaches that we may explore together include: Cognitive-Behavioral, DIalectical-Behavioral,
Mindfulness, Psychodynamic, and Integrative Therapy. Together, we will explore You, all while
igniting and tapping into the hwaiting spirit, in your therapeutic journey.

Let Us Help You Embark On A Journey Towards A More Vibrant Life
