Counseling Service For Members

G.O.A.’L and You&Me Psychological & Consultation Services (YPCS) are pleased to offer G.O.A.’L members subsidized counseling services!


G.O.A.’L has partnered with various local organizations to provide adult adoptees with mental health services at affordable rates since 2008.

15 G.O.A.’L members can receive up to 10 counseling sessions for a discounted rate of KRW 25,000/session. This service is provided on a first come first serve basis. The purpose of G.O.A.’L establishing this partnership is to help make these services more accessible and affordable for our members. It is not a requirement to discuss adoption-related matters if you do not wish to do so.

YPCS is a new counseling center led by Ms. MinJung (MJ) Doh, PhD. MJ received her doctoral degree in counseling psychology from Pennsylvania State University and has been a mental health provider for 10 years. She spent about 20 years in the United States before returning to Korea in 2013 and has practiced both in the US and South Korea. Her specialties include depression, anxiety, adoption, identity issues, acculturation, and family/relationship issues.

YPCS has therapists that have been trained and are licensed in North America. Several of these therapists work with our members.

Individual therapist prices typically range between KRW 160,000-180,000.
