My Background 

Taking the first step for counselling could be intimidating. It might help to get to know me a little bit. I grew up in Hong Kong and came to Vancouver, BC, as an international student near 15 years ago. Growing up, I have always enjoyed connecting with people on a deeper level. People around me have ever come to me to listen to their struggles. As a result, I have always played the role of the listener and offered supportive advice and empathetic responses. 

I started to develop my interest in psychology and mental health in University, and have been volunteering for social service organizations since then. During my time volunteering at the crisis line service, I realized that many people desired to be understood. However, most of them lacked someone they could trust or had the intention of genuinely listening to them. I began engaging in more meaningful conversations that promoted positive changes to others. I decided to pursue a Master of Counselling Psychology degree to integrate my passion for listening to others in my career.

Over the years, I have gained experience working with diverse populations, including young adults, adults, elderly, immigrants, international students, people with disabilities and various ethnic populations. I have also worked with people who experience various mental health symptoms, such as depression, anxiety, trauma, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder etc. 

I value your individual’s uniqueness and what your experience and identity mean to you. I am committed to caring for you as you are in your process of achieving mental wellness.
