About me

I am a clinical social worker licensed in Hawaii with over 12 years of counseling experience. I graduated from the Fielding Graduate University and I have worked with various individuals. In my practice, I use flexible, multi-modality approaches of treatment because every individual has different needs and his/her perception regarding happiness varies.

Every individual in society is different so that per their perspectives, they formulate their opinion and a set of behavior. Under the theory of individual perception, the science which sounds theoretically proven and reasonable comes to play its role, resulting in various consequences. However, I believe that the perception created under the societal and scientific rules is not equivalent to neither the human mind nor the psychiatric world of the individual because human beings have unlimited imagination. I am looking for expanding the dimension of variables regarding the scientifically proven therapeutic methods
My primary approach to treatment uses an integrated therapeutic modality. The treatment modality is based on four dimensions of bio-psycho-socio-cultural health. I will discuss individualized treatment plan in the beginning of the therapy per the need of your priority list. The treatment plan will be uniquely individualized in align with your specific needs
My therapeutic approach stands on viewing the discrepancy between the unlimited dimension of the human mind that limits you in time and space. Exploring the world of the human perception appears important to understand ourselves. Thus, on the unlimited and unrestricted perceptual world of human mind I stand, ready to explore the variables with you

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Hyungbum Kang. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

I find the mental blocks that have held me back over the years slowly eroding with each session. Mr. Kang helps provide useful tools to help stay organized and what's needed to solve problems in everyday life.
