Sunny Lee-Park, MSW, LCSW is a licensed clinical social worker offering services to children, adolescent and adult residents in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. She has a vast array of clinical interests; however, her specializations are behavioral disorders, bipolar disorder, substance use disorder and addiction, and trauma and abuse. In her practice, Sunny believes in a holistic approach to care. A person is more than a list of problems or accomplishments. Each person, no matter how flawed, possesses strength and goodness. She sees a fundamental part of her job as giving recognition to and helping to nurture those forgotten aspects of an individual.

Sunny’s interest in mental health care stems from seeing how many people suffer from treatable disorders. They just do not know whether they can be helped or who to talk to about their difficulties. She aims to be the caring, compassionate and approachable person that helps individuals on their journey to wellness.

Sunny lived in France for eight months and wishes she spoke better French, and she has to remind herself that her dogs do not understand everything she tells them. Additionally, although she is of Korean heritage, Sunny does not like K-pop (Korean pop music).
