Biography

Ju Hea graduated from California State University, Northridge with a B.A in Communication Disorders and earned her Master’s degree in Social Work with an emphasis on Clinical Practice with Individuals and Families from Azusa Pacific University. While she was working her first job out of college as a teacher assistant, she received an award from Los Angeles County’s Department of Mental Health (LAC DMH) as a qualified bilingual-bicultural candidate to provide mental health services for unserved and underserved communities within Los Angeles County. She has worked with secondary school students experiencing learning and socio-emotional challenges, youth and immigrants with adjustment stress, individuals with substance use disorders and co-occurring disorders, family members with caregiver stress, and adults experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, mood regulation problems, and interpersonal problems.

Therapy Approach

My role as a counselor is to help my clients discover and claim internal power, and to take ownership of life without the hindrance of emotional wounds from the past. In my practice, I use an integrated approach to promote individual’s unique needs and goals to navigate life challenges. My clinical training began with therapy approaches that have been thoroughly studied through scientific research, including Person-Centered Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy and Motivational Interviewing techniques fostering a strong therapeutic relationship within a safe, non-judgmental space. I find great satisfaction in helping my clients connect with their authentic selves to achieve increased self-awareness and insight. I also utilize components of Strength-Based Therapy to maximize clients’ potential and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help identify and restructure thought patterns. As a pastor’s kid and an alumnus from a Christian university, I can also integrate Christian faith and spirituality into my practice with my clients’ permission. I strive to present my authentic self to my clients as I encourage them to show up as they are on their journey of self discovery and emotional healing.
