Some weeks I feel like there is nothing in my life to talk about, but each session is different. There will always be something to talk about.

Yoon really took the time to understand me and provided the ways to get over my social and relationship issues. She is very personable and has a great balanced approach like being a friend that is not afraid to tell you how it is. You would be lucky to have her!

Dr. Thomas is one of the only 2 therapists I've had in the last 10 years that has made me feel like my health and well being matters more than their paycheck. She offers real advice and exercises that ACTUALLY WORK! She makes me think and gives me different perspectives to think about. I learn something new every session and I cant wait for my next appointment. Love her!!

Written by J.O. on Feb 20, 2021 after counseling with Yoon for 4 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and compassion fatigue

I had never seen a counselor before so I was unsure what to expect. Yoon was a great listener but really helped me connect with past hurts that I had never even known were bothering me. She helped give me direction at a time when I really clarity. I would strongly recommend her as a counselor.

Written by G.E. on Feb 06, 2021 after counseling with Yoon for 1 month on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

4 years into my second round of depression.... 20 years apart. Decided I needed more help and a fresh reboot. More frequent then the 4-6 week apart healthcare appointments. Those always dealt with the present, CBT, DBT, mindfulness... all great tools but I could never get all 4 tires out of the mud. 1, 2, occasionally 3... but never 4...

Yoon was no fluffy interrogator. (This is actually high praise statement). She dove deep into my life story to really understand how I evolved over the decades. Long story short she demonstrated my current state was not a phase, a sudden change....it was a pattern. This lifted me up as I could see how all my issues have a single root cause... the self reflection she inspired was eye opening.

I know I was blessed getting her as my counselor. You will not regret the decision to choose her. If you get her randomly, know you are truly blessed as well.
