Announcement icon I follow CDC guidelines in providing in-person session. I offer teletherapy, using Zoom.
Peter Shum currently has a waitlist for new clients.
Our world today is full of challenges. Many stressors in life knock us off balance, and we feel overwhelmed, distressed, sometimes angry, sad and lonely. But you do not need to face the challenges alone. I am passionate to help people regain the balance by being more attuned to themselves - their identities, emotions, and physical needs. I work collaboratively with my clients to explore and identify ways to meet their goals, and provide tools and interventions as fitting. Most importantly, I walk alongside them in their journey to attain health and growth.
I have additional training and experiences in working with people struggling with addiction and people who want to improve their couples relationships. My style is compassionate and my clinical approach is informed by Attachment Theory. I incorporate evidence-based practices in my clinical work and I use Emotion Focus Therapy (EFT) especially for couples.
I am trilingual (Mandarin, Cantonese, English) and bi-cultural. I am committed to provide culturally sensitive services to clients not only in the Asian Americans community, but also from diverse backgrounds. I enjoy integrating spirituality in my clinical work whenever it is appropriate as I believe spiritual health and mental health go hand in hand.
