About

Hiu is experienced in working from an Intersectionality-focused lens with predominantly Black, Indigenous, and folks of colour with different neurotypes, who identify as queer and have ongoing relationships with grief. Trained in Feminist Narrative Therapy, Hiu privileges a person’s survival story and relationships to their agency, emotions, boundaries, and people. Hiu takes on a co-researcher role in therapy sessions with deconstructive conversations, insightful and possibly challenging questions, curiosity, and a commitment to naming the oppressive systems and dominant narratives at work.
Rooted in social justice and radical acceptance values, her practice is oriented in an Intersectional Feminist-Narrative and trauma-informed framework, and incorporates somatic techniques. Their special tools include guiding boundary-setting, visualization, and cultivation of appreciation for your agency and worth.
Hiu cares about your experience of the therapeutic relationship as they firmly believe in its impact on how effective therapy will be for you. Hiu is a big fan of comedy and celebration. She is a co-guardian of two cats with opposite personalities and has a deep appreciation for immersive art spaces.
