Hello! I'm Kyong. Thank you for being here!
As you begin this journey of healing and restoration, I encourage you to embrace your faith, spirituality, and who you are, in your therapeutic journey. As you fully engage and participate, you will gain more confidence and empowerment by building and accessing resources from within as well as external resources. As we meet, my goal is to listen, walk alongside you, create space for collaboration and feedback, and equip you with effective strategies. I know taking steps toward counseling can feel scary and daunting. My hope is to ensure a safe and comfortable place for you to heal. You are filled with great potential to heal, strive, and thrive for a purposeful and meaningful life. Christian counseling is available upon request.
You are brave and courageous for taking the steps to seek counseling. I look forward to meeting you!
Kyong's background and experience
Kyong graduated from Northwest University in Kirkland with a Masters in Counseling Psychology. After graduation, she interned at a private clinic, practiced at both a private clinic and community mental health serving teens, adults, couples, and families. She is trained in various therapeutic modalities including anxiety treatment and the neurological effects, as well as in relationship and marriage counseling. Kyong has a Masters in Education. Prior to becoming a counselor, she mentored inter-city youth, worked in public education for over 12 years, and at a non-profit Christian organization providing humanitarian aid globally.
She has an enriching volunteer experience at a non-profit agency that supports sex-trafficking survivors where she learned positive genuine relationships brought healing and restoration. Kyong also went on mission trips to third world countries such as Cambodia, Uganda, and Thailand where they provided humanitarian, educational, and spiritual support to families and adults. It brought a deeper understanding of the longing we all have that thrives for purpose in life, which led her to pursue the counseling psychology journey.
