I am an EMDR trained Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT#86321) who is experienced in working with children, adolescents, adults, and families. I completed my undergraduate studies at the Biola University and went on to receive my graduate degree from Pepperdine University. As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, I am committed to support my clients by providing a safe place filled with compassion, empathy, and non-judgment. I am passionate about my work and a firm believer that inner strength, determination and hope can lead to growth. 

I am certified in evidence-based practices and utilize variety of treatment approaches in meeting different needs of my clients. I am also bilingual in English and Korean and very passionate to work with different ethnic communities. Based on my extensive experience in working with different cultures, I can be sensitive to all cultural issues, and provide a platform to explore them freely.

My goal as a therapist is to provide a therapeutic environment that is safe and comfortable to facilitate progress and resolution of different issues in life that can be debilitating. Life can be confusing and chaotic at times but I do believe in goodness of change. This Journey of life can be difficult but a period of hardship can also be a chance for personal awareness leading to happier life.  Lighthouse Counseling Solutions is here to start that next Journey together.

I applaud your courage and strength in taking the first step toward well-being. My approach is Holistic, individually tailored goals that address Mind, Body, and Spirit Wellness. My clients are teens, older adults, (LGBTQ+) individuals, and couples with symptoms of mental illness, eating disorders, co-dependency, and substance abuse.
Throughout the past 15 years, I volunteered with National Alliances Mental Illness (NAMI) – Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA), Survivor of Domestic Violence, and Susan G. Komen breast cancer organization.

I can appreciate clients that are willing to make the necessary changes to build inner strengths, increase feelings of empowerment, implement boundaries and learn to trust vulnerabilities in healthy relationships. In sessions to reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, stress, worthlessness, and suicidal ideations, I incorporate Positive Psychotherapy, Humanistic, Strength Building exercises, CBT, DBT, Narrative therapy, and Relaxing Meditation Mindfulness techniques.

Together, we set collaborative goals and work toward them with coping tools, humor and spirituality. It can be scary and overwhelming to enter therapy, I am here to provide a safe space without judgment or shame and walk alongside you on your healing journey to positive changes in behaviors and lifestyles. If you are ready to explore and want to experience authentic Peace and Joy in your Life.
