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.

Client testimonials

"Yumin is absolutely incredible! I’ve worked with her for over a year and she has helped me so much with the methods she uses, particularly Internal Family Systems. She very evidently is knowledgeable and practiced in her work, and provides a space for open communication about her methods, what the client desires, and how the methods are working. For anyone struggling with complex trauma, Yumin will help."
- Female college student July 2021
"Sessions with Yumin have been life changing. She provides a holistic approach that really caters to your needs and what you would like to work on. She creates a comfortable environment where you can be vulnerable and yet also feel like you are growing stronger. I came to her for help with anxiety and depression, and we ended up going even deeper and tackling intergenerational trauma. I highly recommend working with Yumin!"
- Previous client July 2021
"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)."
