About

Everyone is on a different journey and we all have our own struggles and stories to tell. I specialised in working with adults, teenagers, and children (6-12y-o) to identify their inner core strengths, maximising their potentials, skills, and abilities to strive for a well-balanced life. I was born in Borneo, identify as gay, and I have experience living in different countries and cultures. My lived experience has filled me with compassion and empathy, and these strengths allow me to connect with individuals on a deeper level regardless of their backgrounds. I speak fluently in English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Indonesian, Hakka etc.
I offer more than 10 years of professional work experience in counselling and psychotherapy, specialising in loss and grief, gender and sexuality, complex trauma and abuse, anger and emotional management, intercultural relationship issues, Autism Spectrum Disorder, PTSD, depression, anxiety, family conflicts, and migrant/international student related issues.
I'm down to earth, approachable, non-judgmental, and practical in my approach to counselling. If you are looking for support during this important stage of life, please reach out as soon as possible, rather than sweeping things under the rug. I can offer Medicare and private health rebates to eligible clients (including international students). Thanks.
