From Struggles to Strengths, Find Harmony Within.

Hi, I'm Lorraine! 

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor in Vancouver, B.C. 

I am a cisgender, middle-class Asian immigrant woman who first came to Canada from Hong Kong as an international student over 17 years ago.

I specialize in individual counselling for a diverse range of clients, including children of immigrants, immigrants, international students, cultural minorities, professionals, and parents. Whether you're grappling with anxiety, depression, burnout, self-esteem issues, relationship difficulties, parenting concerns, or navigating life changes, I'm here to support you on your journey toward healing and growth.

As a therapist, my mission is to provide a safe and non-judgmental space where you can deepen your self-understanding and rediscover your inner strengths. Together, we'll navigate your struggles, equipping you with practical coping skills and tools to overcome obstacles, cultivate meaningful connections and achieve a sense of inner peace.

In our sessions, my approach is relational, holistic, and collaborative. I honour your uniqueness and expertise in your life journey, working alongside you to uncover insights and develop strategies tailored to your needs.

I'm fluent in English, Cantonese, and Mandarin, offering both in-person and online counselling sessions for your convenience.

The first session is an intake session where I connect with you to assess your situation, plan out specific goals, and establish a focus for our sessions.


Intervention to Empower you with practical tools

In our sessions, I delve into the root causes of your situation and offer psychoeducation to help you understand your challenges. I also assist you in moving from struggles to strengths by using interventions and practical tools to help you progress towards your goals.
