Kim's practice is open to individual adults, couples, children, teens, as well as clients for group therapy sessions.

This blend empowers clients with the opportunity to gain perspective and greater self-awareness, while also developing skills for managing difficult situations and emotions.
When working with parents, Kim emphasizes the power of the family structure, which helps clients understand how they can affect positive change within their unit. She also recommends mindfulness practices where helpful. When working with children and adolescents, Kim understands the pressures of academic rigor, and helps clients identify and navigate symptoms of perfectionism.
