Challenges and unexpected events can overwhelm our sense and emotions. I strive to work with children, youth and families in an empathetic and client centered approach to help individuals and groups find hope and joy for the future. Children and youth who have experienced trauma may find it difficult to participate in traditional talk therapies. Rainbow of Hope uses a play therapeutic approach so clients can tell their stories and process their complex emotions. By learning how to tell their story they learn coping strategies that enables each client to see hope within their future.

A life and mind out of balance create stress, worry, anxiety, overthinking, indecision, depression, confusion, self-doubt and self-loathing. This can feel like an endless cycle of suffering, stagnation, or pain that is lasting "too long." Fulfillment and meaning in life arise when we learn to reconcile our thoughts with our experience, when we stop doing and simply be. Many find that sitting and talking in therapy help to an extent, but when we engage our felt sense and physical being, we begin to deeply know and develop trust in ourselves and in our ability to heal, cope and feel well. Art can offer the physical tools for healing.

Since words alone do not always tell the full picture, I use my additional training in Play Therapies, Art , Drama, and movement to help clients and myself see what the misunderstandings, pain, confusion, and grief are about.
Human beings are complicated- and so often we attempt to reach out to others using words to express our thoughts, our emotions, and our behaviours. With children/youth, we see additional communication barriers because of fewer words and limited life experiences. Being part of a family system should bring safety and emotional support to each family member, but sometimes the family, on its own, cannot do this. This is my work- we become partners in the process of change- discovering strengths, and building on them.

Art therapy and somatic therapy are intuitive ways to connect with our experiences and internal process.
I have been supporting families and individuals at a non-profitable organization in Vancouver for the past 5 years while doing private practice for over 7 years as a counselling art therapist. Combining my training in hypnotherapy and mindfulness based somatic therapy, people I support find ways to deepen connections with both their internal and external experiences in the healing process. My experience as an immigrant and growing up in different cultures help me to understand others' unique paths and cultural diversity. I speak fluent Mandarin and Cantonese. I am always fascinated by the stories and resources people share.

After 12 years of being a psychotherapist and an art therapist helping people impacted by trauma and its accompanying symptomatology, I felt called to work with more joy and pleasure, helping clients step into a new reality beyond their trauma experiences.
Sometimes our greatest discomfort comes when we aren’t who we once were and we’re not yet who we are becoming. We need help to step into this new reality. It is possible to go through life’s challenges with support, guidance and inspiration. Trauma can fracture us from our authentic self. Therapy can help to put the pieces together: mind, body, heart and soul. It is possible to discover new internal resources that bring an increased feeling of self-mastery, self-awareness and self-confidence. It is possible that successfully going through life’s rites of passage can lead to a clear vision for a future filled with purpose.

It may look like a craft class, but art therapy in British Columbia is a serious technique that uses the creative process to help improve the mental health of clients. British Columbia Art therapy can be used on children and adults to treat a wide range of emotional issues, including anxiety, depression, family and relationship problems, abuse and domestic violence, and trauma and loss. Commonly found in hospitals and community centres, art therapy programs are based on the belief that the creative process is healing and life-enhancing. As they paint or draw, a skilled British Columbia art therapist can use the client's works of art and their approach to the process as springboards to help them gain personal insight, improve their judgment, cope with stress, and work through traumatic experiences.
