Profile
“My focus is on the sessions: I listen to my clients and make my clients feel comfortable.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My lifelong ambition has been to balance spirituality and science. Before becoming a nurse practitioner, my academic background was in philosophy and religion. I changed my career goal in graduate school and moved from religious studies into psychiatric nursing. I find that mental health provides a balance that revolves around emotion and reason.
What should someone know about working with you?
My focus is on the sessions: I listen to my clients and make my clients feel comfortable. I try to gather important intake data from the sessions, such as the current mental status. Additionally, I provide materials that the clients can practice at home. I specialize in anxiety, panic, depression, mood swings, PTSD, schizophrenia, ADHD, autism, OCD, self-harm, and substance use disorder. I studied at New York University and currently work in a psychiatric unit at Phelps Hospital, Northwell Health. I am bilingual in English and Korean.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
Every day, I work with mentally ill clients in the psychiatric unit at Phelps Hospital. This is a learning process for me, helping me to become a more competent psychiatric provider.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I think mental health can fill the gap where religion and philosophy have failed to provide their services. Mental health can be a spiritual yet scientific way for the client to look into their soul.
Have you done any research-based work that you found particularly exciting? How does it inform your practice today?
I attended a graduate program in religious studies. I was working on a thesis, but I did not finish it. Instead, I decided to change my career pursuit to medicine.
