Jeung-il recently graduated with a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a concentration in Transpersonal Art Therapy from Naropa University. She completed her internship under the supervision of Dr. Dorie McCubbrey, at the Positive Pathways office previously located in Denver, CO. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology with a minor in Studio Art from the State University of New York at New Paltz. Jeung-il has been working with food and art for the past seven years to bring healing to her own life journey. She believes that our relationship with food can be a reflection of the challenges and joys we experience. She also notes that some of life’s deepest wisdom is revealed to us when we engage in the creative art process, since our mind, body, and spirit become involved. Through art, our inner narrative begins to voice its story – as the images unfold, so does our true meaning. Jeung-il’s theoretical orientation incorporates Transpersonal, Strengths-Based, and Humanistic or “person-centered” approaches. In hopes to meet each client where they are, mindfulness practices can be added as part of the therapeutic process. She is inspired to guide clients to access their inner knowing, with both art and talk therapy.
