Mi Seon Kang, LCAT
Adults, Couples, Children & Families
As a therapist, I work from a holistic perspective (body, mind, and energy) and view my clients through the lens of intersectional identities (family/ethnic heritage, culture, race, class, religion/spirituality, age, disability, gender, and sexual orientation), so that they arrive at genuine self-acceptance, healing, and growth. The goal of therapy is to alleviate psychological pain and suffering but beyond this, I believe everyone has the capacity to change, grow, and attain a creative, fulfilling life.
I draw from the wisdom of my own life experiences and utilize the therapeutic disciplines of psychodynamic psychotherapy, trauma-informed treatment, somatic psychotherapy, family therapy, mindfulness-based therapy, and creative arts therapy. From personal experience and the years of working with children and families, I have developed a special interest in providing support and guidance for parents who are dealing with the every day challenges of raising children with special needs.
I offer compassionate guidance in a collaborative, interactive, and reflective therapeutic space that will enable you to: process and heal from your unresolved past trauma and current life challenges; experientially access and examine your unconscious limited thoughts/beliefs and compulsive behavior patterns that no longer serve you; gain greater self-awareness; have clarity to make authentic choices; envision and create new possibilities for yourself.
