About Us

Julia Young Yoon

Founder & Director

To everyone who has found Light In-U International Counseling in Songdo,

I welcome you to Light In-U International Counseling from the bottom of my heart. I have provided therapy for those with depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, difficulty controlling emotions, suicidal ideation, eating disorders, and conflicts within families and relationships for many years. Our practice focuses on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gestalt, Psychodynamics, Object Relations Theory, Person-Centered Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and art therapy. We value an integrated approach to individualized difficulties. We ensure you that we try our best to find the most appropriate treatment for you. My clients are mostly adolescents, couples, and individual adults, and I have witnessed many cases in which therapy has been successful.

Because Songdo is a growing hub of international schools and international organizations, there is a growing need for psychological therapy targeting foreigners, foreign students, and international school students. Light In-U International Counseling was founded to tackle such needs, in addition to the growing pressures from the current COVID-19 pandemic. We welcome everyone from all different kinds of backgrounds and will stand by our five values and work together to create a comfortable place for you.

Thank you.
