I have specialized training in grief and end-of-life-related issues, Buddhist informed, smoking cessation, and mindfulness.
I seek to empower my clients and offer them opportunities to be seen, heard, and acknowledged with compassion, patience, kindness, and attention. My work is trauma-informed and I have extensive experience working with people of diverse racial, cultural, socioeconomic, spiritual, sexual orientation, and gender identities. I treat my clients with utmost respect and honor their resources, skills, and wisdom, which I help them to uncover and rediscover. I help clients to address life circumstances in healthy ways and built resiliency and deeper awareness as well as tools for healing and transformation.

I primarily use Narrative Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), and Buddhist Psychology as the basis for my work with people who have experienced trauma, complex trauma, vicarious trauma, and developmental trauma.
I offer individual therapy to adults (18+) who are interested in exploring the complexities of their past in order to understand who they are today. This work is connected to understanding the relationships around us, our grief, and our identities. We will also explore behaviours that may be getting in the way of leading the life you want, for example, confusion about identity, self harm, suicidal ideation/behaviours and relationship patterns. I welcome people from various social locations, including from the queer/trans community, and offer a sex-positive, Anti-Racist and Anti-Oppressive space.

Me? I'm mixed race, body-centered, anti-oppression, and Buddhist .
You? You're probably awestruck by the beauty of this world but also heart-broken by the cruelty of some of the people in it, and enraged at the injustice. Maybe you have unimaginably intense emotions that you struggle to surf, a quick mind but difficulties connecting with others, creative impulses you can't quite express (or not as fluidly as you used to), or are in a relationship where one of you is a POC and the other isn't and you're just trying to make your crazy love work. You might be a healthcare provider needing to replenish your own well, or a therapist seeking an empowering Clinical Supervisor.

I have spent more than 10 years studying healing methods with not only top psychologists in the field of therapy but I have also travelled the world and studied with Buddhist and Christian monks at various monasteries, lived with shamans indigenous to the Amazon and learned from religious leaders in the First Nation and Sufi communities in North America.
"I believe one of the bravest things you can do is to begin to understand your own story." I have dedicated my life to build a practice where people can come to a place of peace, where you feel comfortable and safe to unburden yourself about the most intimate and personal aspects of your life without the fear of being judged or shamed. This process allows you to shed the layers that keep you going in the same cycles and help you start a new and more fulfilling chapter in your life. Calling a therapist can be intimidating, but I hope you will take a moment (and maybe a deep breath) to call and see how I can help.

I bring the body awareness of my longstanding practices of yoga, Buddhist meditation and mindfulness and my experience as a Gestalt therapist in training into my work in a collaborative way, listening deeply without judgement to explore with you what is going on.
Feeling stuck in a confusing or unhappy situation is painful. Recognizing the same issues and patterns arising time and again despite all efforts to move past them is disheartening. My role is to support you with compassion and curiosity in order to bring all the parts of you, even the wounded or troublesome ones, to the table where they can be honoured and learned from. As your clarity and self-awareness increase so will your capacity to make conscious choices that are in line with the life you wish to lead.

My vision of body, mind and spirit integration model of practice reflects the Buddhist mandate of great compassion to others and self.
I work with people from all nations and cultures, and I work more with adults in my practice and with some Chinese when I also speak both Mandarin and Cantonese. Life is never smooth. From time to time, we need to seek help from others to face the challenges. As a professional psychotherapist, I am keen to journey with you through your life difficulties such as traumatic events, life changes, loss, and grief. I will help you to identify your own feelings, emotions, values, faith, and strength to face your life problems causing stress, anxiety or depression etc. Hopefully we work together to find meaning and transcend life changes.

Mindfulness teaches us how to relate to ourselves with kindness. I understand how the struggle to avoid or control difficult experiences can leave you feeling like your own worst enemy. Mindfulness is a different strategy. It's about learning to feel at home in our own bodies and our minds - even in times of trouble. My work is grounded in my own personal practice: a 20 year meditator with 14 years as a mindfulness educator, I'm a graduate of a Buddhist seminary with a master's degree in Counselling psychology and specialized training in working with trauma and abuse.

You are on your way to deeper growth. I know because you are on this site, actively looking for support. Well done, you. Although, right now it may still feel a little rough. Fair enough. Being human is hard. Regardless of your very human issue: trauma from the past; stuckness in life; relationship issues; out of control anxiety and stress; chronic illness; career struggles; or just feeling lost and confused, the key to moving forward lies within you. Looking inward to see your own values and beliefs is the beginning to accessing your strengths to continue to grow and thrive.

When difficult times come, people are drawn to look at themselves. The habitual patterns of personality and relationships may no longer work or may be unsuited to who you are now. Feelings like shame, guilt and loneliness are painful. Unconscious defenses that protected you in the past can create problems rather than solve them and can actually inhibit your growth and freedom in the present. Therapy can increase self awareness, improve relationships, vitalize your sense of self, help you to discovery meaning and purpose, provide solutions to problems and reduce feelings of distress. Therapy is like a renovation. 30 years experience.

Congratulations for finding the strength to start the process of healing and transformation. Are you seeking a kind guide and compassionate support to find your way through some difficult or challenging territory? Or perhaps you are carrying something that you need to set down? Sometimes emotions can be profoundly powerful and maybe you would like to feel a sense of mastery over your system again. Maybe you know something is just not right but it is hard to define in a way that releases it.

My ideal client is one who feels ready to let go of an old pattern that no longer serves them. This takes awareness, courage, and compassion. You might be in the beginning stages of change, and just getting to know the problem, be it anxiety, depression, problems in relationships, or a life transition. You may have made significant change already, having implemented good habits, but reached a plateau and now wish to develop these good practices further. I support my clients by meeting them where they are at, making values-based decisions from a calm, clear place, and accessing mental flexibility wherever they are stuck

Sometimes, people go through difficult times in life. They face issues in relationships, oppression, systemic racism, social support, self-worth, gender, sexuality, grief, loss, loneliness, trauma, mental/physical health, or family. When in a crisis, people may feel helpless, hopeless, or lost. I believe each person is whole and deserving of love, compassion, and understanding. I am here to support my clients with their struggles, helping them understand they are not alone, connecting them with greater safety and their needs, resources, and meaning. My clinic offers sliding scale rates from 2 therapists by referral.

The focus of my work is supporting people to unearth, examine, and clear old cognitive and body-based patterns of responding. Through creating space, it becomes possible to explore fresh ways of being. Working with me involves both talk therapy and simple somatic practices. The questions I often ask are: what is no longer serving you? What is ready to be composted and transformed into rich soil so something new can grow here? What needs to shift so that you can live more fully in the present moment? In therapy, I regularly check in with people to ensure the experience feels safe and supportive.

By understanding what lies deep within us, what motivates our behaviour, we come to know how to live more wisely and authentically. By giving ourselves the same kindness we give others and in listening to our embodied wisdom we discover fresh new possibilities.Therapy helps to manage anxiety, deal with emotions such as regret and shame, and dispel fear and worry. Without the veil of negativity and self-doubt we can make choices that lead to a more empowered future. If you find yourself feeling stuck, unhappy, confused or overwhelmed, entering into a psychotherapeutic relationship can help.

I work as a therapist for other therapists, a healer for wounded physicians. My clients tend to be high performers who struggle with the downside of over control, perfectionism, and anxiety. I am grateful to have excellent training and experience; my background serves to move beyond symptoms to Self leadership, well-being and growth. Many clients complete their therapy less controlled by their conditioned habits, fears, traumas, and aversive motivations. It gives me joy to see clients leave their time with me with all parts more aligned with Self, Curiosity, Compassion, Clarity, Connectedness, Creativity, Courage, Confidence.

“You can’t stop the waves but you can learn to surf.” – Jon Kabat-Zinn. I believe life is like an ocean, where there are moments of calmness and moments of turbulence. Like the ocean, we cannot stop the stormy seas from coming. Whether you are experiencing life transitions, relationship issues, a loss, trauma, overwhelming worry, or anxiety, my role is to help you navigate the turbulent waves until you can surf the rough seas with ease. My approach is relational, culturally sensitive, and client-centred. My warm, genuine, and compassionate nature allows me to provide a nonjudgmental space for my clients to feel safe and heard.
