About

(

In my clinical work, I conduct focused, short-term psychotherapy that are customized for each individual client's needs. Client-therapist collaboration is emphasized and a supportive therapeutic environment is provided. I favour the use of approaches which help clients to understand, control and integrate their own thoughts, feelings and behaviours. In my forensic work, I adopt a combined approach in which both clinical and actuarial methods are used for achieving accurate and thorough evaluation. Every attempt is made to integrate scientific findings with professional judgement in addressing psycho-legal issues.
I have over 30 years of clinical experience in a wide variety of settings, including social services, law courts, hospitals, and community mental health centres. Besides, I was a professor at 2 prominent universities for 10 years. I provide culturally sensitive psychological services to clients with emotional/relational concerns and forensic/legal issues.
I am conversant in English and Chinese (Cantonese, Mandarin). I am also experienced in serving Chinese, Asians, and ethnic minorities. In my private practice, I regularly conduct psychological assessments, and provide counselling services for adults, couples, and families. I also act as an expert witness in mental health, family, civil, and criminal courts.
