John Kim
My name is John Kim and I’m an author and licensed marriage and family therapist. I discovered the power of group work while working with addicted teens in nonprofit over a decade ago. At the time I was also going through my own rebirth after divorce and started a blog called The Angry Therapist. I pulled the curtain back and showed myself by practicing transparency and sharing my story, something therapists are taught NOT to do. I started working in unconventional ways, meeting clients at coffee shops, on hikes, and in gyms. Running groups at the beach, the park, and online. I thought if we’re going to talk about life, let’s do life while we’re talking. Through my decade + of helping thousands, both on and offline, I learned that there is tremendous power in growing with others. We are tribal creatures. We were never meant to do it by ourselves. That’s the greatest misconception about self help, the word “self.” That’s why I created TAT LAB. So you don’t have to do it alone like I did. You can have the support of a supportive, safe, and thriving community. And it can be fun, casual over clinical. I believe this is the new way to grow.

Astrologer & Coach
Milly Murillo is a trained astrologer with years of experience and a certified life-coach of @jrnicoaching. She combines her love for these tools in order to give clarity to those who work with her. Her love for astrology began as a young girl always curious about the esoteric because her mother was a believer in the esoteric. As she got older she recognized how valuable coaching was to her personally, so she decided to get certified in order to share that with others. All of this led her to create a blog, Astro Consciousness, in which she wrote not just about current planetary transits, but about what they’re trying to teach us using coaching methods. Currently working on a certification in Positive Psychology, her approach to coaching is one in which she is fully present and receptive to whoever is in front of her so that they know that between them there is safe-space to simply "be." She teaches "Astro-Consciousness," and "Healing Relationships Through Astrology."

She came to the world of psychotherapy by way of the well-traversed wounded healer’s path, experiencing her own demons from a young age: anxiety, depression, ADHD, and relational wounding. She decided to take the heroine’s journey, becoming entranced with learning various ways of healing: food, art, movement, spirituality for the spiritually-averse, and the social sciences. Now she loves holding space for folks who are seeking meaning, fulfillment, and finding the “who” they are under the ways they’ve been conditioned. Her approach is curious, contemplative, and playful, aiming to guide clients into greater emotional awareness, radical self-acceptance, deeper creativity, and nourishing wholeness.
