I was born in South Korea and adopted at 5 months old. I grew up learning there are many internal characteristics and needs as humans, we all share. We all share a desire to connect and to belong. The way I grew up has influenced my profession as a couples therapist – I help people be in-relationship with one another honoring their autonomy and creating connection and belongingness. I am grateful for being adopted, being part of a loving family, sharing a life with my best friend, raising a tiny human and Westie, and helping my community. Find me @connectcouplestherapy.

I am a Nurse Practitioner by day and mom always, balancing life with 3 kids, a husband, and the dog. Twin mom of daughters and their older brother leading the way. I have a tremendous love for writing and passion for story telling. I decided to start a mom blog in 2020 to share my experiences navigating motherhood with a special needs child. 2020 was also the year I published my first children’s book, ABC D is Ability, created to explore children’s abilities despite their disabilities. I served four years as an Army Nurse and became Family Nurse Practitioner in 2014.
