Joo Kim, LCSW

I am a licensed clinical social worker who earned a Master’s of Social Work from the University of Minnesota. I grew up in Atlanta, GA and have since lived in the New York tristate area, Minneapolis and now Dallas! I have also been fortunate enough to travel all around the world, and I believe all my encounters across a multitude of cultures have made my life much richer and fuller.

My clinical experience has come from working at a psychiatric hospital and on an ACT (assertive community treatment) team. Through these, I was allowed to support people in their greatest moment of crisis and meet them in their homes to provide support and therapy.

In my practice, I bring a non-judgmental stance, and I’m committed to honoring you and your right to determine your life. By providing a safe place, my hope is to support your journey towards greater health.

I am a Brainspotting practitioner, a newer and highly effective treatment for unlocking healing and growth in a person. Some more information can be found at brainspotting.com. Other skills I use include Person-centered approach, motivational interviewing, CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and SFBT (solution focused brief therapy).

I specialize in treating children/adolescents, clients with depression & anxiety, trauma and spiritual trauma, and general life stressors and transitions.
