Director of Community Engagement, Cedars-Sinai
Through KFAM Counseling, I learned conflict resolution skills, stopped drinking, and made new friends. Counseling was like finding a good friend to talk to when I was lonely and sad. People go to the doctor when they have a cold, but in my culture, there is shame involved in seeing a therapist. I wish more Koreans could see it that way.
Clinical Counseling Client
Over time the shattered pieces inside of us healed. With each passing day, I rediscovered more and more of myself. I started to notice a familiar woman in the mirror. I had always been there, but I had just needed some help and support.
Life Beyond Member
Domestic & Family Violence Program
With my counselor’s help, I could see myself through someone else’s eyes. I finally understood. I saw a different person inside me, who loved myself and was always on my side. I saw that I was the only one who was so mean and negative to myself. I decided that I was the only one who could help myself. I want to change the way I thought and saw the world. I want to accept myself.
One thing I like about KFAM, is that they’re kind of like a one-stop shop. They’ll be there for you.
