In Boston, Massachusetts
Focusing on providing high-quality telehealth services for college, graduate students, professionals, and individual adults
People seek therapy for many reasons. Some want help with emotional problems such as anxiety, depression, or coming to terms with traumatic experiences. Others may feel stuck in repetitive patterns that prevent them from feeling satisfied or finding meaning in their lives. Many people simply want to talk through issues or have a deeper self-understanding.
Psychotherapy is "talk therapy", a process of exploration, introspection, reflection, restoration, and connection through talking. This process is what makes talk therapy actually work by catalyzing the inborn capacities to feel secure and whole. A fruitful process will bring curiosity, clarity, confidence, calm, connectedness, courage, creativity, and compassion.

"In therapy, I provide a safe space for conversation in which I listen to you attentively without judgment and understand you empathically. We will work in close collaboration to develop a trusting therapeutic relationship where you'll feel heard, understood, accepted, and respected. Together, we will explore your feelings, experiences, and relationships to address issues, overcome challenges, and find deeper meaning. "
Is it the Right Fit?
"The most important factor when it comes to getting the most out of your therapy: It’s about your connection with your emotions and your connection with your therapist."
A client who has worked with several therapists might say it's the therapist's personality that makes the therapy experience feel unique and meaningful because all approaches are helpful.
Indeed, the right fit means that the therapist's personality can make the client feel comfortable and at ease to open up more, go deeper, trust more, and feel more secure in therapy sessions.
Psychotherapy is also called "talk therapy" which simply means consistent and regular conversations between a therapist and a client. The question of what makes therapy work or how does therapy work can be answered by a historical finding in neuroscience which is our brain's neuroplasticity. In other words, talking in therapy sessions can rewire the brain.
It's important to find a therapist who can help you connect with your emotions so that meaningful, deep, and reflective conversations can take place naturally and genuinely in a trusting therapeutic relationship. If this makes sense to you, it is very likely the right fit. Clients have commented that they find Han calm, easygoing, and patient.
