My name is Dr. Eunie Jung and I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist working in the Folsom/Sacramento area. My primary specialty is adult psychotherapy. I work from a variety of perspectives, including insight-oriented/psychodynamic therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and mindfulness/ACT-based therapy. I have worked with a wide range of clients of all ages and from diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. I have been trained in several evidence-based psychotherapies, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), Cognitive-Processing Therapy and Prolonged Exposure for PTSD, psychodynamic psychotherapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
While I have experience working with a wide range of psychological issues and treatment approaches, I have particular experience and expertise in the following areas:
-- Anxiety and PTSD
-- Depressive disorders
-- Epilepsy and seizure disorders
-- Conversion disorders
-- Adjustment disorders
-- Psychodynamic psychotherapy
-- Evidence-based psychotherapies
-- Mindfulness and wellness approaches
Background: After graduating with highest honors from the University of California at Berkeley with a double Bachelor's degree in Psychology and English, I received my doctorate in Clinical Psychology from UCLA. At UCLA, I was fortunate to have trained with exceptional clinicians and researchers in a comprehensive clinical training program. Following graduation, I completed my clinical internship and post-doctoral training (specializing in trauma) at the San Francisco VA Medical Center, where I developed my approach to psychotherapy, specializing in both long-term psychodynamic and shorter-term sklls-focused therapies. Through my training and professional career at VA hospitals, state hospitals, university counseling centers, and private practice, I have worked extensively with wide range of mental health issues and have expertise in a variety of treatment approaches.
Approach: My approach to therapy is supportive, collaborative, and empowering. I believe that all individuals have the capacity to self-actualize and reach their goals with guidance, support, and care. I also highly emphasize communication in any relationship, particularly that between the therapist and client.
