About Dr. Yun Gardner

Yuni_edited.png

Dr.  Yuni Gardner has been working for the past 20 years as a clinical professional counselor helping individuals and families understand our own history of intergenerational trauma to heal and disconnected relationships. 

 

Part of her personal and professional journey has been to learn how to heal and have compassion for self and others. She considers herself a "Trauma Survivor and Thriver"  and understand the struggles of living in a multicultural and multi-ethnic world since being adopted from S. Korea at age 4 and trying to assimilate into the US culture.

 

Finding our true identities and sense of worth and belonging- to feel "good enough"in a divisive world can often feel lonely and and confusing and cause us so much emotional distress that we cannot make sense of it. 

Dr Gardner is an advocate of "transforming" our lives with love and compassiona and is an ally of the LGBTQIA community. Dr. Gardner participates in the Standards of Care Collective for Transgender & Genderqueer Health (SOCC) . The SOCC is a group of independent mental health clinicians who advocate self-acceptance and letters for transition to transgender and genderqueer individuals seeking to transform themselves to feel gender congruence.

 

I credit all of the connections and people in my life who have loved, cared, and supported me through my life thus far. For without their mentorship, patience, and knowlege, I would not be standing here today. I am so appreciative of all the compassionate teachers, family, and  especially getting to meet and know my clients, who show up every session and make the effort to heal from such traumatic painful past experiences. "We" are the very definition of "survivor" and "resilient" and this shows how courageous, loving, and compassionate human beings are to seek help and transform our lives for the better.
