About me

Hi, my name is Yong S. Pak. I am a licensed Clinical Social Worker in Las Vegas, Nevada. I have been working in the mental health field since 2005 initially providing specialized therapeutic services to children and families, and thereafter with the general population providing individual, couple, and family therapy. I am experienced in working with clients who struggle with depression and anxiety as well as other mental health issues such as bipolar, OCD, and ADHD. I also have experience in working with family issues, couple-related issues, parent-child relationships, grief and loss, as well as with survivors of emotional and physical trauma.

I utilize primarily a client-focused approach with variations mainly from cognitive and dialectical behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and solution-focused models. I believe every individual, couple, and family is unique and require a customized approach. My job is to provide this customized approach, utilizing my training and experience so that you can best realize your potential and success for therapy.

Since you have taken the initiative to address the challenges in your life through therapy, I hope that you will allow me to help guide and support you on this very personal journey and to achieve changes to become mentally healthier, stronger, and satisfied when it comes to yourself and your relationships with others.

Yong is an amazing listener. She is supportive, honest, and focused on my care and my needs. I appreciate her promptness in responding and during sessions. She is also respectful, genuine and empathetic.

Yong Pak is the 2nd person I’ve seen here on BetterHelp, and I felt a connection and click with her more than my 1st. She’s friendly, listens, and brings up topics from messages between Live Sessions (if I wrote some things of note that week), and/or she also responds promptly by text.

Yong has done a great job for me.

Yong Pak brings a level if professionalism and respect that is desperately needed in the MH community. She is not being gated by infrastructure (patient perspective mind you) or so overloaded that she can no longer be compassionate. Truly feels like she is there for you, and what you're dealing with in that moment.

Yong is so easy to talk too! So far after one session with her, I can see myself continuing with her and helping my mental health.

I am amazed at how well I was matched. I have done therapy before once and it had gone very well. Yong exceeds my expectations. She makes me feel like she is truly there for me and I love how she listens, gives me fresh perspectives, and offers amazing insight. I am going through some intense life moments and trying to deal with old trauma and I don’t know what is do right now without her.

She has such a clever way of helping to parse out the different perspectives one can take regarding situations. Also, her ability to display the interconnected nature of beliefs and behaviors is phenomenal. She is kind, patient, and genuinely empathetic toward her clients as well.
