It is inevitable that life is full of challenges and turmoil.  I believe no one should be alone in the journey of life and I would like to meet and journey with you.  My passion is to integrate my faith, professional knowledge, and skills to accompany you in your life difficulties.  Whether it is a broken relationship, emotional distress, or a big loss in life, we do need to process those emotions and events so as to heal and find a way to move forward.  In our time together, I aim to provide the safety for you to feel heard, respected, and supported as I believe therapeutic alliance is essential for the effectiveness of our work.

As an integrative and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) trained therapist, EFT is my primary modality.  I am experienced in utilizing EFT in helping my clients dealing with marital conflicts, family relationships, depression, anxiety, and trauma. Pre-marital counselling is also something very close to my heart.  It is my conviction that by helping pre-marital couples understand themselves more in terms of their interactional patterns (their ways of communication and conflict resolution), they can be better prepared as they enter into marriage and begin to navigate their marital challenges ahead.  On top of EFT, my approach is also informed by Family System Theory, Attachment Theory, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness, and Solution Focused Therapy.

Besides working with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families, I am especially passionate about working with elderly. Through supporting them to reconnect with themselves and others, my desire is to empower them to live a more fulfilling life instead of being captured by the feelings of loneliness and worthlessness.  I offer counselling in English, Cantonese, and Mandarin.

Look forward to meeting you!
