About

I am a doctoral level registered psychologist with about 20 years of training in psychology in China, Korea and Canada and nearly 4 years of clinical experience mainly in Canada. I work with individuals, couples, and families in managing a variety of different concerns including transition issues, trauma, depression, anxiety, perfectionism, self-esteem, family-of-origin difficulties, relationship problems, and identity development. I work collaboratively with my clients to provide age-appropriate orientation, and offer emotional, and spiritual safety, by considering each client's personal experiences, beliefs, and worldview.
My approach emphasizes the mutual development of goals for therapy. I believe each individual has their own values and strengths and my role is to support my clients to explore and make commitments. I mainly use CBT, DBT, ACT and Gottman therapy orientation to facilitate the counselling session.
I invite you to contact me for a free consultation or to book online. I will gladly spend 10-15 minutes to talk to you about your options. I offer sessions in Mandarin and English.
我们都想过幸福的一生,于是,我们很努力的学习、工作、恋爱、结婚、抚养子女。然而生活对我们每个人来说都非常不易,尽管我们很努力了,但还是会遇到一些困境。不管这些困境是自己造成的,还是不幸的,都需要我们自己来面对。面对这些困境,我们也非常努力,想尽各种办法去解决,希望早日脱离这些苦楚的境地。然而很多时候,不如我们所愿,于是我们悲伤、哀怨、焦虑、不知所措,感受不到来自爱人的支持和理解,指责他人、冲突、抱怨世界、痛恨自己,选择逃避,不再温柔对待周围的人和事,陷入到困境中越来越深。其实,这个时候我们可能需要的只是倾听、被理解,更多的耐心,换个角度看问题,改变从前的行事方式,跟自己和解,跟与自己对抗的世界和解。分享安妮宝贝莲花中的一段话:“如果任何一段旅途,都是一条主动选择或被带领的道路,那么它应该还承担着其他的寓意。是时间流转的路途,是生命起伏的路途。是穿越人间世俗的路途。也是一条坚韧静默而隐忍的精神实践的路途“。人生便是一段旅途,起起伏伏,锻造着我们的精神自我,愈来愈强的自我会带领我们领略沿途的美景,遇见那个更好的我。
学习心理学有20余载,在北京师范大学启蒙,有幸受教数位中国心理学大师,后在阿尔伯塔大学完成博士和博士后的训练,期间有过坚定的选择,也有过很多的迷茫。心理咨询像一道光,在我人生最迷茫的阶段,给了我方向,于是希望更多的小伙伴能受益。CBT认知行为疗法、ACT承诺接纳疗法和DBT辨证行为疗法是我在个体咨询中最多使用的,另外我也使用Gottman的夫妻治疗方法结合文化背景解决夫妻及祖父母三代之间关系冲突。另外,也帮助儿童和青少年学习情绪管理、增强问题解决能力探索他们的成长之路。做咨询之余在国内大学做兼职教师,指导本科、研究生论文,所以比较熟悉大学生面临的学业、就业、恋爱、交友等问题。
咨访关系是个人在心理咨询成长过程中最重要的影响因素,所以在所以咨询之前,我提供10-15分钟的免费商谈会议。另外,咨询过程中如果觉得自己没有被理解,欢迎跟我沟通,本着自愿的原则,随时退出咨询过程。
