In the course of our lives, we inevitably encounter challenging periods and we do our best to navigate with the resources that we have. When the pain and distress become too difficult to cope, having a safe space and a trusted therapist to talk to can help. Allow me the privilege of relieving some of the burden, thereby fostering space necessary for personal growth and a hopeful future.
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and I offer counselling in Cantonese and English. I have over 10 years of counselling experience specializing in children, teens, adults, and families/caregivers from diverse cultural backgrounds. I also enjoy working with people of colour, immigrants, and cultural gap within the family/caregiver system.
If you feel ready to take this journey, I would be honored to walk alongside you. I provide a secure environment to explore challenges, rediscover strengths, and collaborate to find solutions that work for you. I offer a complementary 15 minute phone consultation to see if we are a good fit; I look forward to hearing from you soon!
