Jin H. Park, MA
Mental Health Counselor
Jin understands that during our life journey, we can experience mental, emotional, and relational pain. Sometimes we know what is causing it but don’t necessarily know what to do about it. At other times we don’t actually know what is causing the pain and where it’s coming from, but we know we feel it. This is where therapy can be very helpful.
Jin creates a warm and empathic space as she helps her clients do some excavating work to discover the root cause of their pain and then find ways to heal and cope in healthier ways. She believes the therapeutic relationship that is formed between her and her clients, combined with the bespoke therapeutic tools she offers, is a powerful resource for healing and growth. In her work, she takes an eclectic approach utilizing person-centered, psychodynamic, and cognitive behavioral methods. She has experience helping individuals who suffer from depression, anxiety, adjustment issues, relationships, grief/loss, spiritual abuse/religious trauma, career changes, self-image and identity challenges. Jin is inclusive of all and enjoys working with anyone who wants to heal and grow and will commit to the hard work. She currently offers both in-person therapy and teletherapy to accommodate concerns around COVID-19.
Jin earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Binghamton University – State University of New York and her Master of Arts degree in Mental Health Counseling from Nyack College. Having lived most of her life in New York City, she enjoys meeting and working with people from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds. In her leisure time, she loves to explore delicious places to eat with her husband, going on long walks with her dog, and designing floral arrangements (she used to be a florist). You may sometimes find her floral designs around the office to bring everyone a little cheer.
Jin is being supervised by Dr. Carlo A. Giacomoni.
