Daun Kwag MA, NCC, Doctoral Candidate

I am a National Certified Counselor and am currently pursuing a PhD in Counselor Education and Practice at Georgia State University. I hold a Master of Arts degree in Mental Health Counseling and Behavioral Medicine from Boston University, and two Bachelor of Arts degrees in Violin Performance and English Literature.

My Story

I have had prior clinical experiences with a diverse range of clientele in an emergency department, a university counseling center, and a behavioral health clinic. I have worked with individuals, couples, families, and facilitated group counseling sessions.


I center multiculturalism and social justice in my clinical practice, and utilize Relational Cultural Theory, a feminist approach, to conceptualize my clients. I have also been trained in Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approaches. I firmly believe in the value of a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients and am passionate about helping people feel authentically seen and live in alignment with their values.
