I strongly believe that when people feel seen and heard, there is enormous potential for successful change – this relationship, combined with a variety of therapeutic techniques and modalities, can then act as a catalyst to facilitate a deeper connection with self and others; you will be able to begin your journey of healing.
Encountering distress of any kind can be incredibly overwhelming, isolating, and even defeating to some. A sense of suffering is a universally innate human characteristic, and we sometimes require the assistance of someone outside of ourselves and our closest relationships in order to understand and/or identify the roots of these troubles. In doing so, we open the door and provide ourselves with the opportunity to live a life congruent to our individual needs, and inline with our true values.

As a therapist, my approach is grounded in non-judgment, empathy, and compassion. In the initial phase of treatment, I focus on building rapport and creating a safe and collaborative space where clients can openly share their stories. I bring over a decade of experience from the social work sector where I provided comprehensive psychosocial support to diverse client populations. This allows me to draw from the varied experiences of individuals and proactively participate in their journeys of healing and wellness.

Change is constantly unfolding around us, without always our awareness. You may be experiencing a lot of transitions and perhaps even some uncertainty. You may be quietly asking yourself, is therapy for me? Will it help me? I want you to remember that, change is a constant. I have over two decades of experience working with children, youth, and families. I utilize a number of different therapeutic approaches to practice, namely: Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy and Acceptance Commitment Therapy ( ACT ).

I use evidence-based modalities like CBT, DBT, EFT, ACT , Narrative therapy and more to journey with you on your way through the hardships and struggles of life.
Research has shown that the most important factor in therapy is the therapeutic alliance, or plainly put, the relationship between the client and the therapist. It is this kind of relationship in counselling that has been identified as the fundamental catalyst to facilitate and enhance wellness, change and growth. This, in addition to the tools used from such modalities as CBT, DBT, EFT etc. that can help individuals to experience change, growth and increased well being. I'm honoured to help connect with you where you will hopefully feel encouraged, challenged, supported and helped to meet your goals and make changes in your life.

I believe in an acceptance -based approach, meaning that I don't view clients as being broken or having something to fix.
Clients who want to dig deeper and understand the root of their reactions/concerns are clients who tend to love therapy with me. For these clients, it's about the experience of self-understanding, compassion, and clarity that leads to healing. Clients who need someone to understand where they are coming from, who do not want advice or opinions, rather to be heard and understood and to understand themselves better.

We will learn practical strategies, explore resiliency and develop genuine self- acceptance and new perspectives through eclectic, empirically supported therapeutic approaches that are meaningful for you.
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.

Welcome. Working with a therapist provides the opportunity to explore the things that truly matter to you. Through uncovering the stumbling blocks and triggers that prevent you from being the best version of yourself, we will collaborate together to create self-awareness, self-compassion, and self- acceptance - while determining new avenues to accomplish tangible goals that align with your values. Giving consideration to the 'whole' you is an integral part of the therapeutic process – including those aspects that are painful and deeply imbedded, as well as your strengths, resources and aspirations.

My role as a therapist is to help uncover the significant puzzle pieces of your reality, arrange them in a meaningful way to create a clear image, and act as a guide for navigating through it.
The alliance between a client and therapist is the keystone of treatment success. A growing body of research shows this relationship is more determinant of therapeutic success than the kind of therapy used or the client's characteristics. The best alliance is marked by the relationship quality (feeling understood and validated), a shared perspective/goals, and agreement on the means for change. The decision of who to entrust with your therapeutic needs is your greatest consideration when embarking on this journey. It's my responsibility to tailor an approach best suited to you individually.

It can be challenging to piece it together all on your own, but I will actively listen to you and guide you through the process of self- acceptance .
At some point or another, we have all encountered uncertainties that have surely knocked us down, but I believe that these hardships can be framed in a better and more constructive way and together, working side-by-side, we will develop the right coping strategies, build up your personal strengths, and foster endless self-love. Sometimes, what we consider weaknesses are actually concealed strengths and this will be an opportunity to work towards achieving meaningful personal growth. Trust and collaboration are my fundamental pillars of practice, and I believe that these pillars are crucial towards obtaining substantive results.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors

ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Richmond Hill or for a Richmond Hill ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
