Book a session with Soo Jin if you want to create a healthy and empowering narrative of your life that you can understand and reconcile with.
Soo Jin is an Asian, cisgender woman who lives in Manhattan. She loves to visit independent bookstores and stationery stores with fun “staff picks”, especially those that are women/BIPOC-owned. Prior to working as a therapist, she studied comparative literature in college and worked as a copywriter in the advertising industry, discovering, creating, and sharing “stories.”
Soo Jin’s approach to therapy is holistic and person-centered, fueled by a genuine curiosity about her clients. She primarily draws from trauma-informed, relational psychodynamic therapy, but believes holding a warm and safe space where clients can explore their thoughts and feelings, in whichever way that makes the most sense to them, without fear of judgement, is even more important. In that sense, Soo Jin often invites her clients to utilize creative tools and outlets: poetry, music, drawing, and more, to explore and express themselves, especially when it’s difficult to immediately put words to all the thoughts and feelings that surface.
