Seong-Hye is an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist at S.A.G.E. She specializes in working with teens who have gone through difficult childhood experiences, Asian teens who are working through assimilation or acculturation issues, and Christian teens who are struggling with feelings of fitting in, shame, or conflicting values with friends or family.
“Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary.”Fred Rogers
Life is all about relationships. We are wired for deep connections. We learn how to love and regulate our emotions in healthy relationships, but oftentimes the relationships are scarred by hurts. These experiences hinder our ability or willingness to seek care and comfort from others.
If your teen child is feeling lost, disconnected or overwhelmed, then therapy can help them make sense of it and learn new ways of connecting to others so they can build a community of trustworthy people.
By creating a safe and supportive environment, my goal as a compassionate clinician is to help adolescents heal from past hurts, cultivate meaningful relationships, and identify strengths so they can lead resilient, fulfilling, and purposeful lives.
