Hi everyone! My name is JeeYe (pronounced JeeYeh or the letters G-A). I was born in South Korea and when I was 7 years old, my parents decided to immigrate to Vancouver, Canada. Moving to a new country at a young age, I faced struggles and challenges, especially around physical differences, language, and culture. Confusion arose and I often found my young self with questions circling around “Who am I?” “What am I supposed to be like?” and “Where do I fit in?”

Time and again I found myself searching for a safe place and person/people, as my home and parents were unable to secure safety for me. Then in my mid 20s, after being diagnosed with a life altering health condition, I came to therapeutic counselling. I was sitting in a place of doubt, confusion, and hopelessness. I was convinced I would be broken, incomplete and not worthy to be part of society. I viewed myself as a body and soul filled with problems. However, with time, counselling offered healing, and with courage and support, I was able to explore areas of my life with curiosity and an open mind and heart. This journey asked for patience, time, self-love, and connection. This  allowed me to reconnect and reclaim parts of me that I became disconnected with. Healing brought forth a life of living, passion, and authenticity.

My belief is that we are all worthy of living a life filled with authenticity, love, and connection. We are much more than our stories and pasts.

JeeYe’s Approach

I offer you a safe space for your story to be shared, for your experiences to be seen, heard, and recognized.  In therapy, you will be met with care, compassion, empathy, and genuine curiosity.

Together we can work to:

  • discover what it is that is holding you back, placing you in a place of “stuckness,”
  • bring awareness and an understanding to the core cause of your struggles on a mental and emotional level, and
  • provide resources to help build courage and resilience as we work on examining and adopting a new pattern of thinking, feeling and living.

Therapeutic Modalities

  • Transpersonal Therapy
  • Gestalt Therapy
  • Person-Centered Approach
  • Bowen Family System Theory
  • Intergenerational Trauma Therapy

All of these are combined with a experiential and holistic approach—mind, body, heart, and spirit. Mindfulness and self-compassion strategies are encouraged in our sessions.
