Message to clients

I practice the philosophy is self-acceptance. My core belief is that we are all unique and talented in numerous ways. Therefore, we must follow our own path in life. You may doubt yourself sometimes because your path does not meet society’s expectations. But, there is only one YOU in this gigantic universe that no one can replace.

Professional endorsements

"Yumin is hardworking, caring, empathic, and genuine as a therapist. She actively listens to client’s problems without passing any judgment, and is able to be emotionally attuned to client’s needs and feelings. She is also very patient and supportive as she allows clients to work through their problems at their own pace. With her interning experience with the Butterflies program, she’s worked with families of different backgrounds. She treats each and every client she’s met with respect, truly valuing their individuality and uniqueness as a person, which I believe is a very precious quality as a therapist."

- Jennifer Shih, LMSW • June 2018

Client testimonials


Yumin was thoughtful, insightful, and willing to work with me at my own pace. She let me set the goals/objectives for the each session and our overall time together. I never felt rushed into tackling something I wasn't ready for, and she made me feel comfortable in her office (and online).
