About Me

Do you feel stuck by anxiety, depression, irritability or other overwhelming feelings? Do you feel like your life is out of control? I specialize in working with teenagers and young adults who need help with anxiety, depression, trauma, and chemical dependency. My approach is client-centered, flexible, solution-focused and tailored to your needs and goals. I am committed to providing a profound sense of safety and trust to all my clients. Therefore, my goal as a therapist is to accept, validate, and encourage you through your different stages of change. This is all to help you reclaim your life in a meaningful and fulfilling way.

In my past experiences, I have had the privilege of working with people from all walks of life. I became a culturally competent therapist, especially with ethnic groups who struggle with multicultural issues (intergenerational conflict, acculturation, immigration, and stereotypes/discrimination). I can provide therapy in English and Korean.

By using evidence based practices such as EMDR, we will look into your past and develop awareness and insight into emotional and physical well-being. EMDR is a great tool to resolve trauma related issues and build self-empowerment. I can help you heal your past and find your inner peace in the present time. If it is time for a shift in your life, I am here to support and facilitate the process.

Written by D.E. on Oct 08, 2019 after counseling with Hong for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and coaching

I truly am blown away at how helpful my sessions have been and how easy they are to set up. Truly I’ve seen many therapists over the years while taking time to go to offices. This is easier and amazingly more helpful.

Hong has been very helpful. He has shown me a wide variety of techniques to handle the issues I struggle with, and he adapts what we work on together based on what has been working for me. I like that helps me understand and learn about myself, but also encourages me with actionable steps to deal with my immediate problems.

I really enjoyed how together we set goals, we set realistic expectations of therapy together, and we do our best to send me those goals.

Mr. Jeong is very helpful and insightful of feelings I display that I tend to overlook. I really appreciate his efforts and he really takes the time to hear about my feelings and what I go through. He also suggests and responds in positive and healthy ways that make me feel that I can overcome anything I am facing. He also is very responsive and gives a lot of worksheets which I find so helpful.
