This week, Christie chats with Kim Park about the challenges that therapists themselves face when seeking mental health support. They discuss how difficult it can be to take their own advice about self-care and processing their emotions that they give to their clients. Kim shares how working through her own journey as a Korean adoptee has given her the courage to face vulnerabilities, embrace the unknown, and heal old wounds. They also discuss the importance of community when facing personal challenges.
Kim Park (she/her) is a licensed social worker in New York, who identifies as Korean American. She provides psychotherapy in non-profit and private practice settings to encourage and help others find their voice.
