Hi, I'm Jin Hee Kim, and I'm a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker. I have nearly 20 years of experience as a social worker and therapist both in Vermont and New York and worked with a diverse range of clients, in age, in identity, in backgrounds and challenges.
My focus? Working with women who find themselves at stuck places in their lives - whether it be in relationships, job/career, life stage, parenting or in their relationship with food and their bodies (body image, self confidence, or just so sick of dieting and wondering what else is out there).
The Goal : Together we will look at those stuck places to find the way through to a more fulfilling, more authentic, richer... and hopefully more peaceful and less stressful... life.
As a therapist, I aim to create a warm, empathetic and safe space to heal and grow. I work from a holistic perspective that draws from a variety of therapeutic techniques, mindfulness and coaching (positive parenting and intuitive eating).
I look forward to hearing from you!
Additional areas of focus: Stress, Anxiety, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Depression, Body Image, Eating and Food-Related Issues, Multicultural Concerns, Women's Issues
Clinical approaches: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Motivational Interviewing

Jin is great at listening and providing me with a different perspective that makes sense. She provides a sense of validation for my feelings when appropriate and challenges me to view things in a different way when my brain doesn’t stop dwelling on things.

I’ve been with Jin for almost a year now and have had a great experience working with her. She’s helped me work on my CBT and DBT skills and have helped me change my thought patterns to benefit the way I view and handle stress-inducing situations. She’s very receptive with my needs and helps me build cognitive skills that has overall changed my way of handling my depression and anxiety. I highly recommend her as a therapist and look forward to continue working and growing with her!

Jin is very attentive and supportive in a non-judgmental manner. She always has suggestions for addressing issues or concerns. She checks up on me to see how I’m doing so I feel cared for.

I have tried therapy a few different times in life, but working with Jin is the only time I actually feel like I am making progress. She makes you feel heard and is very understanding, whether you’re having a break through or rambling about your day. If I am ever having a high level of anxiety, simply talking with Jin helps to calm me down, as she makes space for my worries and fears in a healthy, productive, and non-judgmental way. She is consistent with checking in and responds to messages in a timely manner. I would absolutely recommend Jin to anyone seeking help.
