Kyoung Kim, B.Th., M.Min & M.A

Personal Statement

In our life journey, we encounter many different challenges which might be tough or light when we don’t expect them, but it is hard for us anyways. On the other hand, all humans have different uniqueness with resilience and recovery capacity from their encounters because I believe that a human body is physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually interconnected to live, grow, change, heal and to be a well-being. It is a wonderful privilege for me as a therapist who walks alongside together with those who seek to find balance in their challenged lives, support them to find their new solutions and to empower them to begin their new life journey.
