Dr. Oksoon Cho


Dr. Cho is the founder of the Chicago Mental Health Institute. Her diverse experiences in the field of child & family counseling and clinical mental health counseling have been well recognized in both the US and South Korea. Dr. Cho began her career in Korea and after moving to the US to further expand her career, she recognized the lack of mental health support for Korean-American immigrants such as herself. This led to the establishment of the Chicago Mental Health Institute for Korean Americans.
