About Me


I started my practice as an Eastern Medical doctor in Korea in 1999 and have tried to integrate Eastern psychiatric treatment with Western psychotherapy. My twenty-year experience with patients let me realize that the analytic approach to the human mind needs to be complemented with integrative and transcendent perspectives. I also pay a great deal of attention to the personality type difference between people and cultural issues. 

저는 1999년부터 시작된 임상경험 속에서 동양의 정신의학, 서양의 정신분석학을 접목해 왔습니다. 이십년의 임상경험속에서 사람의 마음을 분석하는 것은 통합적이고 초월적인 관점을 함께 필요로 함을 깨닫게 되었습니다. 저는 또한 사람간 성격유형의 차이와 문화적 이슈에 많은 주의를 기울입니다.
