Christy Hyun MFT License #46787 ​

          In 2002 I began my first hours as a therapist at a group home for teenagers with addictions and behavioral and mental disorders. It was a life changing experience. I learned how to appreciate the unique challenges of teen life and how to better understand the struggles and obstacles they face during this developmental stage.  Later as I began working with abused women, I learned how to help women address their needs and suffering. When I worked with marriages, I found great satisfaction in seeing couples' love revived and marriages restored. When I witness the wholeness and healing that is facilitated through therapy, I feel honored to have traveled this journey with my clients.
