If you are a person that has been facing a significant life challenge, a major life transition, or a change in how you thought life would look like, seeking support can be a daunting place to start. I support those who are hoping for a safe, trust-filled space to express some of the thoughts and feelings that seem too big or scary to share with others in their life. Some of these concerns I address include coping with uncertainty, processing trauma, and living with more emotional regulation and a sense of ease in the body. I am here to validate your hardship, while also fostering hope and empowerment.

Counselling is not all about giving advice but help you find insights. It's for you to safely explore and discover answers within yourself. Counselling can also be a place for you to be heard, welcomed and accepted for who you are and to be supported for your journey to answers or to your true self.   ​ Everyone's journey is different. So are the stress, issues, pains or whatever they're facing in their lives. Whatever it is that you're facing, you have all the abilities and talents to overcome it. We are all here for a reason and meant to be here. Thank you for letting me be your support during the tough times.

Do you feel like you're stuck in old patterns? Are you always zoning out or in crisis mode? Do you struggle to connect with your body and aren't quite sure what it means to feel your feelings? Would you prefer to work with a queer therapist with experience supporting 2SLGBTQ+ folks and who is committed to integrating social justice into therapeutic work?

Clients tell me I’m calm, curious, and compassionate—a patient, friendly collaborator who helps them find insight, connection, and direction. I'm a good fit with people who sometimes feel a bit “different” or want something a bit different in life. Like most, I am somewhat wounded myself (and relatively comfortable with it), and that helps me connect with people experiencing loneliness, anxiety, depression, feelings of day-to-day boredom and restlessness, and (perhaps especially) existential angst.

I take an existential-phenomenological view when working with clients-which means that I seek to be open to whatever issues you bring to our sessions, without judgement or applying my interpretation. Together we enter into a conversation that examines your experiences, emotions, and thoughts, from which you can make decisions that enable you to respond and react to life and its challenges. Issues are treated according to your experiences of them using a variety of techniques. How we go about things is always personalized and always within your control. Consider me a guide, rather than a guru.

Being a human is hard. Sometimes, the waves of the human experience feel like they’re engulfing us, and we feel swallowed up by sorrow, terror, shame, stress, or confusion. Other times, we may feel so disconnected from ourselves and the world around us that we wonder if a meaningful life is possible. Perhaps there are parts of your mind and heart that are fighting with each other, and you’re wrestling with constant inner turmoil. Or maybe you are tired of repeating the same old patterns and finding yourself in the same place you once were: frustrated and perplexed as to how you can break out of a cycle that is no longer serving you.

Have you found yourself feeling overwhelmed, spending your days anxious or depressed? Perhaps you've received unhelpful advice, read self-help books, or tried to power through. People are hard-wired for connection, and we heal through relationships. Therapy can be a safe place to develop connection, heal childhood wounds, rewire your nervous system, accept yourself, and experience more joy and confidence. I use what I've learned on my own healing journey, as well as from my professional experience, to help others develop a happier, more meaningful life and better relationships.

Clients who enter into therapy with me will find themselves entering into a warm and safe environment where they feel respected, valued and heard. Asking for help isn't easy. I always admire the courage it takes for a person or couple to decide to enter into the counselling process. People often feel vulnerable and anxious when they come to counselling for the first time and my goal is to help you feel safe and cared for, and to know that you're not alone. My belief about the therapy process is that in order to heal and grow, we need to "feel felt" - to feel genuine concern and understanding in a non-judgemental environment.

As an Asian-origin female therapist, I work with my clients to navigate life through their unique perspectives. Our intersectionalities can be our strength and resilience.

Stuck in exhausting cycles? Overwhelmed? Escaping into habits that aren't really serving you or are harmful? This can be painful and frustrating, especially when it feels like it’s gone on too long and is out of control. Others might not ‘get’ you yet expect certain things from you. Perhaps you're yearning for a version of yourself that feels clear and unburdened. You shouldn’t face this alone and deserve an opportunity for relief. You deserve chances for joy. Not just for yourself, but for everyone who matters.

Do you find yourself stuck? Not knowing where to go, or even how you got to where you are? Or is it the opposite? You know exactly what you want in life, it's just not working? I recognize that each person approaches life transitions & change with a unique set of values, beliefs, and past experiences. It’s also true that each person's experience is different, and can come with a variety of thoughts, feelings, and consequences that vary from person to person. My priority as your counsellor will be to create a safe space where you can explore your options, figure out how to chart your future course, and build the life you want.
