Noreen Jaden | Founder​

  • Advanced Corporate Coaching Program (CCU)
  • Business Coaching Essentials Certificate (CCU)
  • Registered Psychologist License (Alberta, Canada)
  • Master of Science, Marriage & Family Therapy (Loma Linda University)
  • Graduate Certificate, Family Life Education (Loma Linda University)
  • Bachelor of Arts, Psychology (University of Alberta)

I started Adaptable Human Solutions with an ambition to provide a space for both individuals and organizations to imagine and create new possibilities. A place where new ideas emerge, transformation occurs, and synergy is found within and between individuals and teams.

I am a firm believer that work should be more than a means to an end and is one more place that we can live out our purpose and experience with great meaning in our lives. With a vision of seeing others step more fully into their places of highest contribution, I blend my background as a Canadian psychologist, business leader and consultant to catalyze change.

Little thrills me more, professionally and personally, than having the privilege of seeing people more fully step into the lives they believe they were meant to live, embracing their passion and purpose. When I am privileged to be alongside them in their journey as leaders, entrepreneurs, or individuals, hearing of the joy this brings them and viewing the upward cycle of their development and contributions to their organizations is an amazing experience.

As a psychologist turned entrepreneur/business coach/consultant, I am passionate about merging all kinds of development models for unique and best outcomes. As conversations are facilitated and new thought processes are triggered, possibilities are expanded and in this space, new ideas, projects and businesses are born. My personal journey has transformed into one of supporting other entrepreneurs, start-ups, and leaders of larger business in process alignment as well as personal alignment.

If I had to sum up my coaching/consulting in one word, it would be “alignment” as it is often about aligning processes, people, and programs to experience and deliver the greatest value. Whether I am actively coaching, coming from a place of leading my organization, or just living in my community this is likely one of my own highest places of contribution and truly a place of meaning for me.

In the time of COVID-19, we spend more time around the dining table – with home-cooked meals, to be sure, but also enjoying rousing games of table tennis.

My strong sense of curiosity about people and the places they live has taken me to well over 60 countries, with the beautiful country of Bhutan being the latest.

In 2009, I was honored to become an Honorary Seoul Citizen.

NEW DAY at Arirang: “Body Profile Obsession

Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy… Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.

Certified Clinical Psychologist

  • Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (University of Glasgow, UK)

  • Master of Arts, Psychology (University of Edinburgh, UK)

Within the therapy room my aim is to provide a safe and judgement free space where we can explore life’s challenges together, reflecting and problem solving as we go.

I am individualized and person centered in my approach. Every client and every situation is different and there is no “one size fits all” approach to life or to working towards positive mental wellbeing. I believe that therapy is a joint venture whereby we work together to better understand the presenting problems and underlying difficulties in the context of life experiences, developmental history and current circumstances.

I have a wealth of experience working with adjustment, whether that be adjusting to changes of life circumstance, health changes or diagnosis, dealing with uncertainty or grieving for a variety of losses.

I use an integrated therapeutic approach drawing from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

While the foundation of my clinical practice is cognitive-behavioral therapy, I employ an eclectic methodology that integrates elements of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness, solution-focused therapy, motivational interviewing, and biofeedback. This personalized approach allows me to tailor my interventions to the specific needs of each individual/family, ensuring a comprehensive and effective treatment plan.

Diana Park, Licensed Creative Arts Therapist Board-Certified Registered Art Therapist

Licensed Creative Arts Therapist
Board-Certified Registered Art Therapist

  • Licensed Creative Arts Therapist (The State of New York Department of Education)
  • Board-Certified Registered Art Therapist (Art Therapy Credentials Board)
  • Certification in Art Therapy Supervision Training (American Art Therapy Association)
  • Master of Arts, Clinical Art Therapy (Long Island University, USA)
  • Bachelor of Arts, Visual Communication Design (Kongju National University, South Korea)

I believe therapy is a lighthouse in the storm as it provides GUIDANCE in one’s life. The most common response I get from the clients is “I don’t know why this is happening to me.” I’ve encountered many clients confused about their problems, not knowing where to start or what they want from the therapy sessions. It is the role of a therapist to work together with the client to explore and investigate the root of the problem by assessing and organizing their thoughts to capture a complete understanding of the problem. By having a comprehensive understanding of the problem, they are able to set a realistic therapeutic expectation. Therapy will guide and lead them safely to the land when they can’t see the path in the storm.

To be successful with the treatment goal, I believe that the assessment is a critical kick-off process because it is easy to get lost in the middle of the treatment if one didn’t receive the appropriate assessment. I utilize art-based assessments as well as other psychological evaluations and assessments. Due to unfamiliarity with art-based assessments, some have questioned its validity and reliability. Widely practiced by qualified professionals, they are safe and effective methods based on empirical research derived from quantitative evidence. I have found art-based assessments are more effective with clients who do not have ability to assess their symptoms and problems such as children or individuals who are reluctant to verbalize their problems because it promotes self-reflection, self-awareness, and insight and is more motivating and enjoyable.

Many clients come in with worries such as “I can’t draw” because it is common thoughts that art therapist can provide only art therapy. I believe every single client has his/her own uniqueness and it is the role of the therapist to identify one’s characteristics, strengths, and challenges to utilize the most appropriate therapeutic approaches for the individual. I utilize variety of therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapies, Narrative Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and, of course, Art Therapy. I also want to say “Don’t worry if you can’t draw.” Art therapy DOES NOT require any specific level of artistic skill or talent. The focus of art therapy is not to create aesthetically pleasing or technically proficient artwork. The focus rather lies on empowering the clients to self-expression and exploration without fear of judgment. It is a powerful therapeutic approach for individuals who may find it challenging to express themselves verbally or prefer non-verbal modes of communication.

Lastly, the statement that I have heard a lot was “I wish there were a magic pill.” I understand the frustration, however, therapy is not a magic pill. It is important to have realistic expectations about therapy and understand that it is a process that requires active participation, effort, and time. Therapy is collaborative. Thank you so much for reading my long script. I support you all in achieving your own goals and creating a meaningful and fulfilling lives!

UK.
Master’s Social Work, University of New Hampshire, USA
Bachelor’s Social Work, Higher Technological Educational Institute, Patra Greece

As a psychoanalytic psychotherapist I offer both long and short psychotherapy and counselling to adults and couples. Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy enables people to develop a better understanding of their inner self, which, in turn enables them to have a better insight into their own feelings/thoughts/behaviours and these of others. The ultimate aim is to feel more content with various aspects of themselves and their lives as well as reach their full potential in their personal and professional lives. Our work together aims to reach beyond the initial symptoms which may have initiated the desire for therapy, to the underlying causes which reside in deeper layers of our psychic world. It is usually seen as a journey towards self-discovery and introspection that involves patient and therapist working together. Working in this way we aim to create lasting change internally and for my clients to start feeling more in control of their lives both in connection to themselves and others. I provide individual sessions, couple counseling/psychotherapy in English and Greek.

Some of the benefits:
• Focuses on underlying emotions
• Explores avoidance behaviours
• Identifies recurring thinking patterns
• Explores past experiences
• Explores interpersonal relationships
• Helps recondition the brain from past traumas

  • Individual and Couple issues
  • Low mood/ Depression
  • Anxiety/stress/other mental health issues
  • Post-natal depression
  • Bereavement/Losses
  • Identity/cross cultural issues
  • Parenting issues
  • Self -harming behaviours/suicidality
  • Difficult life experiences you wish to understand and resolve
  • Going through life transitions which you find difficult
  • Feel stuck in certain areas of your life
  • Relationships feel unmanageable or overwhelming
  • Finds it hard to manage new role sin life (such as parenting)

I am a physically active adventure seeker and a keen reader. I love travelling and exploring new places, studying philosophy, astronomy and learning about people and different cultures. I feel really humbled and really grateful to have the opportunities that I’ve had over the past couple of years to get to know both on a personal and professional level some amazing people.

He who has overcome his fears will truly be free.

  • BA, Business Administration, Psychology (Yonsei University)
  • MA, Clinical/Counseling Psychology (Seoul National University)
  • Certified Youth Counselor Lv.2 (South Korea)
  • Certified Professional Counselor Lv.2 (South Korea)

I see psychotherapy as a wholistic problem-solving process. We often encounter events in life that we did not learn how to handle and sometimes working through it can be very challenging. So with a foundation of strong bonding and understanding between me and my client, we lay out the cards we have and devise a plan. This includes learning more about ourselves and practicing skills that are tailored to my client’s strengths and the problem at hand.

I lean towards the practices of clinical psychology, integrating therapy modes and techniques which are supported by research and collective experience. The theoretical approaches I use are: person-centered therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, schema therapy and dialectical-behavioral therapy, including mindfulness and acceptance based strategies. I structure the therapy process to be empathetic, collaborative, creative, resonant and last but not least, humorous!

My professional experience includes those as a school counselor, therapist for expatriates, and researcher focusing on the psychological maladaptation of artists. I also have a personal experience traveling to over 20 countries and meeting people from diverse cultural backgrounds. This led me to deepen intercultural understanding as well as expand my psychological knowledge on young adults, non-Koreans in South Korea and artists.

  • Canadian Certified Counselor (CCC, Canada)
  • Certified Counselor (KPA, South Korea)
  • MA – Counseling Psychology, Trinity Western University
  • BA – Psychology, Trinity Western University

I feel privileged to be in the counseling room with my clients who are investing the courage to share their own stories and deepest emotions, and taking steps to make positive changes in their lives.

I have worked with international students, immigrants and locals in the multicultural city of Vancouver, Canada. My clients were children, adolescents, their parents and other adults with a wide variety of personal issues. Along with other ethical standards, I believe understanding and respecting the unique cultural and personal backgrounds of my clients is essential in developing effective therapeutic relationships with them. My own experience of being raised in two distinct cultures has helped increase my awareness of and respect toward individuals who come from different backgrounds, and who might be facing the challenges of adapting to a completely alien culture.

In terms of my therapeutic approach, my goal is to practice integrative counseling, which goes beyond eclectic counseling. I believe the most effective counseling demands openness and the flexibility to modify different strategies on the part of the therapist, which will fit the unique needs and the situation of the individual client. Having said that, the theories that resonate most closely with my therapeutic approach are person-centered and family systems. I value individuals as unique and believe that we are constantly choosing in spite of having embedded influences from our formative years. Some of the interventions I use – depending on the individual situation of the client – include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Existential Therapy and Art Therapy.

Although many clients might perceive my role as that of a ‘healer,’ I would like to think of my clients as “fellow travelers” instead of making distinctions between clients and therapists (Irvin D. Yalom).

  • Cross-cultural families

I am one of those people who need a certain amount of sleep in order to function well the next day. According to my friends, I become a completely different person after 11pm, and I say things that do not make sense or are difficult to understand.

Whenever I bake healthy cookies or muffins, my family and friends have one bite, and only one bite… not because they don’t taste good, but because they are too healthy!

Our family has two lovely dogs named Cheolsu and Younghee.

  • Certified Coach (KAC, South Korea)
  • Ph.D.-Counseling & Coaching, Yonsei university
  • MA- Religion & psychology, Graduation Theological Union
    BS-Pharmacy, Ewha Womans University

I believe that my role as a therapist is to create a safe, supportive, nonjudgmental, and empathetic space for clients, so that they can share their stories and experiences to process their unresolved issues in the past, finding better solutions for the current issues and developing skills for the future events.

I mainly use the integrative therapeutic approaches to be able to facilitate the process: CBT(Cognitive Behavior therapy), DBT(Dialectic Behavior therapy), ACT(Acceptance Commitment therapy), psycho dynamic theories for the individuals, Solution focused therapy, Brownian systemic therapy for the families and Emotionally focused therapy for the couples. In case of trauma, I added seeking safety modules, IFS(Internal Family Systems), CPT(Cognitive Process Therapy) and Poly Vagal Theory.

I think that as a human being, we are all different culturally. Integrating cultural elements in our psychological responses as well as integrating spiritual practices in our therapeutic process will be helpful to understand ourselves in a holistic way.

  • Individual, couple and family issues
  • Anxiety & depression
  • Sexual issues

Rather than fixing, healing, or recovery, I prefer to embrace each person’s whole self, enhance their resilience, and sublimate what they are struggling with through multiple forms of art. In this way, visual metaphors are added to their lives. Focusing on the strengths that I find while working with them, I help to motivate them to self-reflect and self-validate and I witness some parts of their therapeutic journey toward an enhanced quality of life. My therapeutic alliance with the client has an effective and meaningful communication method based on empathy and integrity that transcends words. In terms of therapeutic approach, my interest began with Nataly Rogers’ Person-Centered Expressive Art Therapy and has been developing into an integrated and customized form with various evidence-based and solution-focused techniques, including psychodynamic perspectives, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy.

But there is hope, and I’m here to offer you a safe space to navigate your personal struggles, overcome life’s challenges, and develop self-compassion and emotional regulation skills. As a Canadian Certified Counsellor with expertise in OCD & Anxiety-related disorders, Depression, Trauma/PTSD, Stress and Anger Management, Interpersonal Effectiveness, and Cultural Adjustment, I have the tools and knowledge to support you.

Many of my clients have found that our collaboration empowered them to confront difficult emotions and gain a deeper understanding of their minds, emotions, and bodies. It’s common to carry the weight of past wounds and traumatic memories, which can make us feel inadequate, disconnected, and out of place in the present moment and our relationships.

I want to invite you to join me on this beautiful journey of healing and self-growth. Through self-love, compassion, and a profound understanding of our past, we can find the inner strength to heal our wounds and reclaim our lives. I would consider it a privilege to work with you, offering hope, support, and positive solutions along the way. Let’s take this step together toward a brighter future.

The place where I am living has a long and very cold winter and a short but awesome summer. Despite temperatures dropping to as low as -30 degrees, I am a nature explorer who loves spending time outdoors because nature is one of my best friends!

The essence of trauma is a disconnect from the self. Therefore, the essence of healing is not just uncovering one’s past but reconnecting with oneself in the present.

I desire to create a space where you can be authentic and assured that your life obstacles or even vulnerability will be engaged with the utmost respect. I believe that a nonjudgmental, caring space of our own can be an amazing catalyst for growth. As a counselor, I enjoy empowering my clients and helping them build on their strengths so that they can overcome personal challenges. My goal is for you to experience the freedom that comes through counseling and processing life circumstances together. We all have unique stories, and I would be honored to hear yours, should you choose to share it with me.

My approach draws primarily from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which focuses on solving current problems and modifying unhelpful thoughts and behavior patterns. However, I am flexible with my therapy approach and adapt different ones based on the needs of my client so that I can effectively assist them in reaching their counseling goals. I am committed to helping my clients improve their mental health and find peace in their life.

I have a wealth of experiences working with adolescents in life transition, school adjustments, self-harm behaviors, anger issues, peer relationships, family problems. Also, I have experiences with adults to assist adjustment, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, self-esteem, and stress management.

모든 사람은 그 자체로 존중받아야 한다고 생각합니다. 내담자의 자기실현과 행복한 삶을 돕는 것이 상담자의 역할입니다. 치료는 관계를 통해 체험적으로 일어나는 것이며, 자신의 모습을 있는 그대로 알아차리면서도 수용하도록 돕고, 자기 자신이 자신의 삶의 진정한 주체가 되도록 하는 과정이 상담에서 이루어집니다. 주 치료 접근법으로 게슈탈트치료, 정신분석, 애착이론, 인지행동치료 등을 사용합니다.

Board-Certified and Registered Art Therapist & Licensed Creative Art Therapist

  • Board-Certified and Registered Art Therapist (Art Therapy Credential Board, USA)
  • Licensed Creative Art Therapist (New York State Department of Education, USA)

  • Bachelor of Arts in Art History and Theory & English Language and Literature (Hong Ik University, South Korea)

I join my client’s unique healing journey with integrated holistic approach of art therapy, talk therapy, psychodynamic theory, relational-cultural therapy, client-centered therapy, mindfulness practice, CBT and DBT techniques. Client is the expert of their own journey and I come in with my own experiences, insights, and wisdom in life as well as professional knowledge. I am here to guide you, walk alongside you, and sometimes push you in your healing journey.

I believe every person is an artist in a way, picturing and writing their own stories. In art therapy, there is neither right or wrong ways of making art, nor good or bad artist. I encourage my clients to use art as one of communication methods. Sometimes it’s hard to express oneself in a verbal language and we need some time to understand what’s going on inside us. During the art making process, clients can start to understand themselves, gain new perspectives, gain a sense of mastery and achievement, learn and develop distress tolerance skills, coping skills, organizational skills, and self-soothing skills. In one’s healing journey, art can be used as a safe and strong tool.

  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Trauma
  • For a certain period of my life, I knew how to play an oboe, a violin, a piano, a sogeum (Korean traditional musical instrument), and an ukulele.
  • My least favorite art medium is watercolor paints because it’s too watery and hard to control for me. Still, I often challenge myself to use watercolor in self-care. It helps to accept who I am, my vulnerability, weakness, frustration, and to practice letting things go.
