Professional statement

Hannah Kim is a licensed mental health counselor in Boston, MA who works with college/graduate students and young adults, with a particular focus on serving Asian/Asian Americans. Many of Hannah’s clients are struggling with a hypercritical self that creates self doubt and feelings of not being good enough, manifesting in anxiety and depression. Hannah emphasizes exploration of clients' many identities that impact self esteem, interpersonal relationships, and connection to their authentic selves.

Hannah's style is interactive, relational, and gently direct. Her approach is rooted in psychodynamic therapy, which uses the therapeutic relationship to identify and resolve problematic patterns in interpersonal relationships and explore cultural contexts in which our beliefs and experiences are shaped. Hannah also uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, an evidence-based approach that focuses on helping clients understand how his/her thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected, so that he/she may feel empowered to begin to make targeted change. In addition to talk therapy, Hannah provides Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to address disruptive cognitive and behavioral patterns that stem from traumatic experiences. With these approaches, Hannah's goal for clients is to nurture self compassionate language within his/herself and develop beliefs that align with his/her true worth and values.

Within her practice, Hannah is committed to maintaining an inclusive practice that is social justice oriented. Outside of private practice, she works with Asian American mental health collaboratives across the country to destigmatize mental health and increase resources/accessibility to the community.
