Dr. Hae-Joon Kim (she/her) is a post-doctoral clinical psychologist. Hae-Joon specializes in working with adults experiencing difficulties such as mood and anxiety symptoms, interpersonal challenges, and issues of identity and self-esteem.
Hae-Joon works primarily from a psychodynamic/relational orientation, but has experience in other approaches, including cognitive-behavioral and dialectical behavioral therapies. She is interested in cultivating an open and non-judgmental space in psychotherapy that allows individuals to feel heard, find their own voice, and feel freer in their lives. Hae-Joon believes that psychotherapy occurs in a space co-created by therapist and patient, and emphasizes the importance of this relationship in psychotherapy. She enjoys working with individuals from a diversity of cultural backgrounds, genders, and sexual orientations.
Hae-Joon earned her doctorate in clinical psychology from Fordham University. She received her B.A. in history from Columbia University. She has trained in various settings, including a college counseling center, a community clinic, and hospital outpatient, inpatient, and partial hospital units.
