Christie Kim Psychotherapy therapist

I was drawn to the practice of psychotherapy as a way of helping people feel seen and listened to, validated in their experiences, and supported in their challenges. I aim to provide a breathing space as a respite from the noise and stress of everyday life.

I believe that both pain and healing are rooted in the relationships we have with ourselves and others. I strive to create authentic, warm, and accepting relationships with my clients in order to foster trust and growth. Guided by a relational cultural perspective, I work in collaboration with clients around issues regarding relationships and partnerships, codependency, identity, past trauma, and life transitions. While I utilize different modalities depending on the needs and interests of each client, my approach is emotion-focused and psychodynamic. With experience across a wide range of settings throughout New York City, I am dedicated to meeting clients where they are in their culture, identity, and self-expression. Along with individuals and families, I am passionate about working with couples and have experience working with couples within the LGBTQIA community.
