With a sensitivity for the unique challenges and issues facing Chinese Canadians, I bring diverse tools to help you adapt to Canadian living. We can address emotional and relational issues associated with moving abroad and support your efforts to build your social network. I have practiced as a counsellor and therapist both in China and in Canada. I completed a Master of Science in Psychology in China. More recently, I completed a Master of Pastoral Studies at the University of Toronto, adding a faith-based component to work with those who wish to consider problems in a spiritual framework.
As a growth-oriented person, I support my clients in their pursuit of meaning and use a range of techniques which includes cognitive behavioural methods, solution-focused interventions, methods that source from the narrative therapy school of thought, and other applications.
I can work with you on a range of issues, and can tailor my work to your interest and orientation. Long, long had been my road and far, far was the journey; I would go up and down to seek my heart's desire. I provide psychotherapy mostly in Mandarin (普通话) and English. 疫情期间优惠服务。
