Dr. David Kim Ph.D, LPC, CPCS, M. Div

I am a licensed professional counselor in state of Georgia and have enjoyed providing psychotherapy over past 19 years.  I am an adjunct faculty at the Mercer Medical School (Marriage Family Therapy Program) and maintain a private practice in Peachtree Corners, Georgia where I works with individuals, couples, and families.

Language: Korean and English

My Story

I have enjoyed providing psychotherapy for over eighteen years. I currently maintain a private practice in Peachtree Corners/Norcross, Georgia where I work with individuals, couples, and families in both Korean and English languages. I offer both short and long-term psychotherapy depending on client need. Some people find just a few sessions helpful to resolve an issue while others choose to explore long-standing patterns and struggles over a more extended period of time.

I especially enjoy working with clients on the following issues: Relationship Issues. Introspection/Insight Therapy. Assertiveness. Depression and Anxiety. Grief and Loss. Life Transitions. Spiritual Formation. Addiction. Domestic Partner Violence. Adult ADD. Adolescent and Parental Issues. LGBTQ/Sexual Identity Issues (from open and affirming perspectives) and Personal Growth and Development.

As a second generation Korean American, I have a unique perspective on working through multicultural complexities that comes with working with Asian and Asian American families.

Outside of the office, I enjoy playing golf, being a car enthusiast, as well as fostering friendships old and new.
