I have had the privilege of working with the adolescent and young adult population for over 20 years. Through these years I have gained the keen understanding of the ever-changing challenges and needs of this population. My extensive experience gives me the edge in working with adolescents and families who are struggling with all sorts of issues. I have been blessed with the opportunity of helping hundreds of individuals and families deal with and overcome their struggles and regain control of their lives. I am also trained in EFT marraige counseling - enhancing relationships and enriching lives.
I believe in honoring each individual's unique life journey. Our sessions will focus on exploring your strength in a non-judgmental and collaborative space. Instead of "fixing," I would like to work with you in "actualizing" your own truth as the starting point of your healing journey. I've been working at Toronto Western Hospital as a mental health clinician for 10+ years in both English and Mandarin. I also work with MVA, EHC, GP- and self-referred clients from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds and religious beliefs in my private practice.
As a registered psychotherapist in Canada I thrive to understand my clients’ concerns and issues primarily. I provide therapy and counseling to many clients all around the world. Many of my clients are referred by their family doctor, friends or family. My private office is where I invite most of my clients. However, I also offer online psychotherapy and counseling by Teletherapy. In our first sessions I start with a brief assessment through a short casual conversation. Then we talk about any psychological, physical or relationship issues you would like to share. My approach is REBT, Mindfulness, systemic family and couple.
I use an integrated approach customized for each client based on their issues and preferences, employing psychodynamic, cognitive, dialectical, and somatic modalities, along with hypnosis and meditation. I currently serve as the clinical director of one of Toronto’s most progressive mental health and addictions agencies, where we treat problematic substance use, complex trauma and personality disorders such as Borderline Personality Disorder. I also proudly maintain this after-hours private practice with Anju Uddin, RP.
Are you struggling with unresolved trauma, relationship issues, anger, depression, anxiety or low self-esteem? I am a creative, compassionate and skilled psychotherapist.

Having worked 13 years at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, and subsequently 7 in private practice, I have extensive experience helping clients with depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, grief, self-esteem and relationship issues.

During our sessions we will walk together down the challenging road to recovery, self-acceptance and contentment. I will guide and support you in exploring darkness as well as celebrating your achievements. I create a culturally safe and mutually respectful environment that honours your life experiences, resiliency and your efforts to find balance and wellness.
We sometimes go through stages in life where everything we do seems unmanageable. Getting through the day feels like a chore. At some point, we all experience periods of anxiety and depression. The key is not to let it overwhelm us to the point where we cannot function. I can help you bring back purpose to your life. By helping you identify your thoughts/ behaviours which are holding you back, together I can help you discover ways to cope and strategies to make it through your most challenging of times. CALL ME FOR A FREE 15 MINUTE CONSULTATION! These 15 minutes could change your life.
I provide psychotherapy which is grounded on listening and understanding. There is much for me to hear before I get the full picture of what is going on in your life, and lots to discover for you and me together before the time comes for my expert advice. My main discovery of the last decade is that people can come to many therapists, for many times and yet not become ready ever to say openly what is the matter. It is why I know my clients need time to assume that I am really on their side. To figure out, bit by bit, what the possible advice or solution can be and then help you to do that we decide to do, I have my basic training in client-centered psychotherapy (“by Carl Rogers”), and I am a very, very orthodox Rogerian therapist. In addition, I have studied cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectic-behavioral therapy, music psychotherapy and non-directive child play psychotherapy. I will apply in your situation that which matches your particular needs. Also, I realized that some ideas of psychoanalysis, Adlerian psychotherapy, Existential therapy and Logotherapy can be helpful as well.
Are you struggling with the breakup of your marriage? As a Divorce Healing Coach, I help people who want to heal beyond their separation and divorce. If you are feeling hopeless, sad, stuck, frustrated, or out of control in your life, I'd like to support you. I specialize in working with people experiencing high conflict divorce including abusive and narcissistic relationships. You deserve support and guidance through this time. PRIVATE SESSION ARE 90 MINUTES long, as I have found this is the perfect amount of time needed for people healing through a divorce.

Every person’s journey is unique and change is not always easy but is a process that requires building up and establishing compassion, patience, courage and safety. I am passionate about sensitively journeying alongside people in the process of change, growth and healing. My vision and desire is to see each person experience a sense of being empowered, encouraged, and valued by means of exploring together "the matter of one's heart and the heart of the matter".
