Bachelor of Arts
Graduate Intern Counsellor
Young is in her final year of the Master of Counselling Psychology program at Adler University. She is pursuing an RCC designation with the BCACC following completion of her degree. Young was born in South Korea, and has lived and worked in Singapore and Canada, bringing a unique cultural awareness to therapy.
Young believes that every individual has the strength and wisdom within themselves to overcome difficulties and create the life they desire. As a therapist, she strives to create a compassionate and safe space in which she collaborates with clients to identify their inner resources and explore ways to mobilize those resources effectively. Sometimes clients may have identities or narratives that are no longer serving them. Examining these together can help develop more adaptive approaches.
Working from an Existential-Humanistic perspective, Young believes that clients are the experts in their own experiences. She aims to create an authentic connection with the client while incorporating interventions and strategies from Narrative therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Choice Theory/Reality Therapy.
Young provides counselling services in English and Korean.
Graduate Intern Counsellor, Young Hong, is accepting new clients from across British Columbia, on Wednesdays and Fridays. As a Graduate Intern Counsellor, Young will be under the direct supervision of the Clinical Director, along with the support of her accredited university.
