Professional statement

Dr. Kang is a licensed clinical psychologist in New York and New Jersey, who provides individual psychotherapy, couples therapy, and family therapy to children, adolescents, and adults in NYC and Westchester. She earned her bachelor's degree in psychology at Georgetown University and her doctorate at Fordham University. She completed her pre-doctoral internship at Mt. Sinai/Elmhurst Hospital and her post-doctoral fellowship at Pace College Counseling Center. She has been practicing for over 12 years and has extensive experience working in college counseling, school, outpatient, day treatment, inpatient, and forensic settings in the NYC area and collaborating with culturally diverse children, adolescents, adults, families, and parents. Dr. Kang has a special interest working with Asian American clients and other minority groups struggling with acculturation.

Dr. Kang's therapeutic approach is holistic and incorporates various factors that impact an individual's sense of self. She is integrative in her use of techniques, offering concrete tools for dealing with life's challenges as well as helping clients gain insight. She draws from psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, family systems, and emotion-focused frameworks, but overall values the therapeutic relationship, characterized by non-judgment and genuineness, as a source of healing.


Message to clients

I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to engage in self-reflection at some moment in their lives, whether they are transitioning through a phase or struggling with the daily stressors of life. Therapy is a collaborative process which you, through guidance and introspection, can reach the best version of yourself and develop meaningful relationships, self-fulfillment, and mastery over past and present challenges. The most important part of the therapy process is the working relationship between the therapist and client. Much like you shop around when you make an important purchase, you should similarly shop around, ask questions, and find a therapist who is the best fit for you.

If we begin our work together, I first and foremost want to create a space for you in which we build trust, honesty, and openness and you can grow comfortable to share all parts of yourself. This is a dynamic process in which we continuously create our therapeutic space together so that we can ultimately meet your needs and goals.

If you feel that I may be a good fit for you, please reach out to learn more about out potential work together and begin our journey of self-reflection, change, and growth.
