Jin H. Park, MA
Licensed Professional 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 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 in discovering the origin 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. Jin takes an eclectic approach in her work utilizing person-centered, psychodynamic, and cognitive behavioral methods. She primarily works with individuals who struggle with depression, anxiety, spiritual abuse/religious trauma, self-worth and identity challenges, in which all of these can manifest in a myriad of ways. Jin is inclusive of all and enjoys working with anyone who wants to heal and grow and will commit to the hard work of doing so.
Jin earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Binghamton University – State University of New York and her Master of Arts degree in 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 explores delicious places to eat with her husband, goes on long walks with her dog, and actively seeks out local comedy performances.
Jin is being supervised by Dr. Carlo A. Giacomoni.
