Ruri enjoys working with children, adolescents and adults in individual, family and group therapy formats. She specializes in the treatment of Anxiety Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Mood Disorders, Adjustment-Related Disorders across the lifespan, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Executive Functioning (EF) skills, Traumatic Stress Disorders, and various relationship concerns. She has provided a range of evidence-based treatments including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), Trauma-Focused CBT (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Parent Management Training (PMT), Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions (SPACE), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).Ruri’s clinical approach is authentic and integrative, resulting in a collaborative treatment plan based on client’s values, the best available clinical research, and clinical expertise for her clients to not merely survive but thrive in their lives. She also brings a social justice lens to her work, which allows her to understand how experiences of injustice, systemic inequities, and oppression impact her clients' mental health. By exploring and honoring her clients’ layers of intersectionality, she supports her clients to cultivate self-awareness and uniquely tailor skills that will ultimately bring them self-compassion and liberation. Ruri believes the most crucial part of successful healing therapy is the relationship between a client and therapist. She approaches therapy by thinking of herself and her clients as “fellow travelers,” co-creating narratives that help clients to better understand themselves and move forward in service of their values and goals. Ruri currently offers her services in Korean and English to children, adolescents, and adults, as well as families.
