Helen HyunKyung Park, LCSW, MFA

Helen HyunKyung Park, LCSW, MFA is a psychotherapist, clinical supervisor, and meditation teacher in private practice based in New York City. She specializes in relational, anti-oppressive, and holistic therapies for teen and adult individuals, couples, and families. Helen integrates relational, strengths-based interventions with practices from Indo-Tibetan Buddhist psychology, somatic abolitionism, and insights drawn from Interpersonal Neurobiology and Applied Neuroaesthetics.

Helen’s approach is compassionate, collaborative, and trauma-informed. She works from a decolonized understanding of trauma and healing to facilitate meaning-making, transformation, and growth. Her use of family-systems interventions supports clients in identifying the salient contexts of lived experience and relational histories that shape their current struggles, and in finding their pathway toward repair and wholeness.

Helen deeply values and fosters her clients’ agency in creating their healing narratives, and believes that every person possesses the inner wisdom, resilience, and creativity needed to heal, no matter how dire the circumstances. She is deeply committed to supporting clients in identifying what is needed to heal from relational and intergenerational traumas, break recurring cycles of unwanted personal struggles and relational dynamics, and to find abiding happiness, fulfillment, and flourishing in accordance with their deepest values and hopes.

Many of Helen’s clients struggle with identity-based trauma, C-PSTD, anxiety, grief, relational and family conflicts, and life transitions. She also specializes in working with multi-racial/QT couples and families and transracial adoptive families.

Helen received a Master of Social Work from New York University, Master of Fine Arts in Digital Art/New Media from University of California, Santa Cruz, and was a Fulbright Fellow to South Korea. She hold certifications in Clinical Externship in Family Therapy from the Ackerman Institute for the Family, Mindfulness and Compassion-Based Contemplative Psychotherapy from the Nalanda Institute for Contemplative Science, and the SIFI from Silberman School of Social Work, Hunter College.
