"Counselling is a journey through which

we realize we are not alone in this world."



About Me

I am a registered member (#1829) of BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC) since 2001. With more than 20 years of professional counselling experience in both public and private settings, I am passionate in walking with people through their struggles and helping them overcome their traumatic past. I am always eager to learn and develop myself both personally and professionally. My counselling approach aims at helping clients increase their self-awareness, identify unresolved emotional blockages, desensitize and reprocess emotional charged materials, promote integration of a wholistic self, improve and enrich interpersonal relationships, develop new perspectives in their life stories, and experience the joy of emotional freedom. 

I believe life is created to be beautiful, meaningful, and hopeful despite the messiness and complexity of humanity. I value each individual's uniqueness and the process of their "becoming". I offer the option of Christian faith integration within the counselling process but it is entirely up to the client's choice. Being a partaker of grace, I am committed to care for the soul and journey with people from different walks of life.

  • I came from Hong Kong and have resided in Vancouver for over 25 years. I am married and blessed with a family of 4. I am fluent in English, Cantonese, and Mandarin.

  • I graduated from University of British Columbia with Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, Trinity Western University and Seminary with Master of Counselling, and Regent College with Master of Arts in Theological Studies.

  • I have received training in Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy. With my continual study in Structural Dissociation Theory, Ego States Therapy, and other trauma-informed therapy models, I hold a systemic view on the complexity of our inner and external experiences and help clients navigate in the midst of relational and psychological health issues.

  • I have received training in Energy Diagnostic & Treatment Method. I often incorporate energy tapping as one of the tools in my practice. 

  • I have completed Level 1 and Level 2 trainings in the Gottman Method Couples Therapy and I apply Gottman method when working with couples. I am also a trained Prepare-Enrich Program facilitator. I am certified to administer the program with couples in preparation for marriage or relationship enrichment.   

  • I am a Certified EMDR Therapist and a registered member of EMDR International Association. I use EMDR therapy to help clients process and resolve impacts from past disturbing events. I am actively pursuing advanced EMDR trainings and other complementary modalities such as Deep Brain Reorienting (DBR).

  • I incorporate techniques from various evidence-based methods such as Dialectic Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) into my work. 

  • I have completed a two-year training in Spiritual Direction at Christian Formation and Direction Ministry Pacific Northwest as providing soul care to my clients is a significant part of my passion.
