  • M.A., Mental Health Counseling, Gallaudet University
Short Biography

Originally from South Korea, SooHyun Tak came to the United States at age 4 with her family for better quality of life and opportunities for a deaf child.  She obtained her Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling from Gallaudet University, Washington, D.C. in 1995. Since then, she had been providing advocacy and counseling services to deaf, hard of hearing, and deaf-blind individuals for 18 years in various settings, ranging from residential treatment milieu for children to community based mental health and advocacy agencies.  Prior to joining the Department of Counseling in the fall of 2013, she was the Director of Human Services at the Greater Los Angeles Agency on Deafness, Inc. (GLAD), providing the oversight and supervision of advocacy and job placement services, community education, hard of hearing program, low income senior housing, and two outreach satellite offices in Bakersfield and Antelope Valley. 

She has given presentations at conferences at both local and national levels on diversity at workplace as an effort to raise audiences' self awareness on how each of those issues may have attributed to their working relationships with colleagues and consumers.
