Background and Approach 


My team and I provide services to older children, adolescents and adults utilizing an evidence-based, cognitive-behavioral approach that includes mindfulness and acceptance-based treatments.
 

I received my BA from Harvard University and my MA and PhD in Clinical Psychology from University of Wisconsin – Madison. I have specialized training in mood and anxiety disorders, eating disorders, suicidality and self-injury, trauma, substance use, and adolescent development. I am currently a professor in the PhD program in Clinical Psychology at Seattle Pacific University as well as Co-Founder and Chief Clinical Officer at Joon Care.
 
I started Joon Care in the fall of 2019 because I saw more and more teenagers and young adults struggling with their mental health. 13-24 year olds are a unique group and certain treatment methods tend to work better for them, specifically Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Our team takes what the science tells us about mental health, and have found a way to make mental health care more accessible to teens, young adults, and their families. At the same time, we have not sacrificed the quality of care. In fact, our recovery rates for adolescent anxiety and depression are consistently higher than the industry standard.
 
Our approach to clinical care is collaborative, evidence-based, and strengths-focused to help clients improve coping skills, manage depression and anxiety more effectively, improve sleep, reduce self-injurious or disordered eating behaviors, and overall improve their quality of life. 
 

Our Clients


Our clients are typically adolescents and young adults struggling with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, disordered eating, self-injury, suicidal ideation, substance use, or trauma. I focus on helping my clients identify and achieve their personal goals to improve their daily functioning and overall well-being.
 
You're not alone. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, approximately half of 13-24 years-olds will experience a mental health disorder. COVID-19 has only amplified the high levels of anxiety, depression and stress among youth. In fact, our research indicates that since quarantining began, teens and young adults are reporting significantly more loneliness, anger and suicidal thoughts.Equally concerning, about two thirds of youth and young adults with diagnosable depression or anxiety will not receive any counseling or support. Today, there are simply too many barriers to accessing mental health care. Our team is here to solve that. Please reach out and we can schedule a time for a call to learn more about each other and see if Joon Care would be a good fit for you and your family. 

Our Goal 


We will work together to help you feel better and achieve your goals. With my guidance and support, you will learn to cope with stress better, communicate more effectively, and build a life worth living.
