Helen Yum, LCSW


I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, credentialed in the states of California and Hawaii to diagnose, create treatment plans, and practice psychotherapy.



Helen Yum, LCSW

I specialize in helping individuals overwhelmed with depression and anxiety disorders find a path out of feeling stuck. I work from a culturally sensitive, strengths-based perspective and offer support and guidance in a safe, nonjudgmental atmosphere. My treatment approach utilizes cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic techniques to address a variety of problems including depression, interpersonal conflicts, difficulty with intimacy and relatedness, self-destructive or self-sabotaging behaviors, repeating painful life problems with little sense of control, life adjustments and transitions, grief and loss, and anxiety disorders, including post-traumatic stress, social phobia, and generalized anxiety. I believe in a collaborative, open, results-oriented approach to therapy in which my clients and I work together to develop insight and solve problems.

I earned a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Columbia University and a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Welfare from the University of California, Berkeley. I have specialized training and experience treating Post Traumatic Stress in military veterans and have additional experience with survivors of sexual abuse.

Reviews for 

Helen Yum, LCSW

Helen is an amazing therapist; I literally cannot say enough about how much I have benefited from seeing her.

Helen has been awesome! She was my first therapist that I have seen as an adult. She always listens and gives me the best advice without making me feel like I’m being judged or being overbearing.
