Dr. Yesel Yoon is a Clinical Psychologist who works with adults who struggle with perfectionism, burnout from relationships and caregiving, and career transitions. Many of her clients describe themselves as high achievers and perfectionists. They are often so invested in pleasing others but they struggle to take care of themselves. She helps people gain more self-compassion and establish healthy coping skills. She also provides counseling for professionals struggling to find a good career fit or transitioning to a new job.
Dr. Yoon’s approach is both exploratory and skills-based. Her techniques include utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness practices. She works with her clients to adapt more flexible ways of thinking about themselves and their situations so they can get unstuck and feel less stressed or burned out. For her clients in Career Counseling, she uses assessments to target strengths, values, and goals and helps people achieve actionable steps.
Dr. Yoon wants her clients to feel more confident in their ability to manage their emotions, and to be more accepting of themselves so they can gain a more fulfilling life. One of her favorite quotes is “Get out of your mind and into your life.” She hopes to help you put this into action.
