I am a marriage and family therapist licensed in California and Illinois over 10 years of experience working as a psychotherapist and art therapist, and am a Ph.D. in expressive therapies. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, adjustment, family issues, parenting problems, ADHD, and other life challenges. I also helped many people who have interested in art therapy.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and psychodynamic counseling. Most of all, I trust in everyone's capacity to find wisdom within through the counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

With so much going on externally and internally in my life Dr. Kim really helped me realize what I am capable of and what I cannot control. She is wonderfully kind and I am quite thankful for her.
