My practice is person-centred, trauma-informed, and draws largely from Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) – a relational and emotion-focused approach. I believe each person is the expert in their own life and inherently has the knowledge and resources necessary to guide the therapeutic process, make changes, and move toward their preferred ways of living. I am here to support you with this process.

I have a reputation for being non-judgmental and gentle in my approach, which promotes the sense of safety and openness necessary to collaboratively unpack and find relief from the challenges of life. Often, this involves building awareness of old emotional patterns and working together to develop and experience new and preferred patterns in session.

To best understand and identify the complex patterns involved in our thoughts and behaviours, simply limiting ourselves to labels of perceived symptoms (i.e. diagnoses) misses out on the true human experience. Through a high degree of curiosity, intrigue, and empathy we are able to subvert our own expectations and identify what may otherwise be lying just under the surface. Perhaps the hidden and uncomfortable truths that continue to cause distress.

This is the strength of a curious approach. Not only do we uncover and address the underlying concerns for the benefit and growth of the client (you), but the counsellor is naturally invested by the intrigue and collaborative discoveries being made, by virtue of their own burgeoning curiosity.

I provide counselling services in French and English for individuals in matters related to anxiety, depression, life transition, gender, grief, loss and suicide. My practice is founded on the belief that you are not the “problems” present in your life, and that, above all, you are greater than the sum of the events in your life. As my counselling approach is strength-based, Solution-Focused and Narrative-rooted, our conversations will identify, explore and honour the big and small ways you defy and resist “problems”, while re-authoring a deeper and richer version of your life and journey.

I am a trilingual registered counsellor from Hong Kong, and I practice in English, Cantonese, and Mandarin. My interest in becoming a counsellor came from my experience of witnessing a close family member suffering from schizophrenia, along with my own struggles with anxiety and self-esteem.

Over the years, I integrated my training and these many experiences to help me relate to a wide range of individuals and the different circumstances they bring to me. I am good at helping my clients connect on a deeper level to themselves so that they can respond and not just react. I also help clients describe their inner world of emotions in a way that finally makes sense to them so that they can get unstuck.

Our biggest moments of crisis, when supported with care, consciousness, and insight, are in fact our greatest sources of personal growth and transformation. I help individuals to strengthen the resources they have within themselves, learn to navigate challenging and uncomfortable emotions and life experiences, and build resiliency to navigate through tough times. As you begin to more consciously navigate life’s ebbs and flows, I support you in moving towards a more comfortable, content and meaningful life.

MSW, PhD, University of British Columbia

My approach to psychotherapy is tailored to the particular problems, strengths, and experiences of each individual client. Although I am informed by my research – and the research and theories of others – on identity and personality, emotions and interpersonal relationships, and the effects of trauma, I base my work in therapy on an understanding of the individual. This individualized focus lends itself to a variety of issues that lead people to seek therapy. While every therapy is unique, I maintain an overall commitment to establishing a professional, safe, and comfortable therapeutic relationship to help clients address important personal goals and challenges.

How do we know what works – and why? I believe that most people can ultimately provide the answers for themselves; however, it may take some exploration. I therefore use strategies that are evidence-based and research-driven, to help clients build resilience and develop effective coping strategies.
A counsellor is someone who is there to provide guidance and support in times of unmanageable stress. While our sessions may draw from various counselling approaches, including CBT, SFBT, and Narrative Therapy, the client ultimately provides the backdrop – and puts in the work – that leads to lasting change.

It’s tough to be a man. I know. I’ve been one all of my life. Whether it be emotional or sexual intimacy issues, depression, anxiety, self-esteem and the over-reliance on career, substances, money or sex, men can get lost in a thousand different ways. For 36 years now I have been counselling men and know this territory inside and out.
