Life is like a book. Some chapters are chaotic and some chapters are enjoyable. We tend to struggle with similar issues as human beings; even though our life narratives are different from one or another. You are here and ready to turn the page to the next chapter of your life book. Psychotherapy doesn’t have to be rigid or sterile to achieve your desirable outcome.
Based on your life narrative, I use integrated therapeutic approaches to help you achieve a better understanding of yourself and others around you; so it can potentially enhance your ability to experience a more satisfying personal and/or professional life.
Clinical experiences in Royal Victotia Hospital & Canada's largest mental health teaching hospital CAMH that sets the standards for care, research, education and leading social change. Matters include:
I grew up in Beijing, China. The abundance of classical literature was my “hiding place” during adolescence. For me, this provided early exposure to the western mindset. In 1999, I immigrated to Canada; then, I entered into a racially mixed family. Everything was suddenly so different! I was confused about who I was and where I was going.
Ironically, this is where my life got renewed focus. The journey to a new destination began with three years of psychodynamic training accompanied by two years of master degree study at the University of Toronto, specialized in psychotherapy and spiritual care; plus first-hand clinical experiences in CMAH, the largest mental health educational hospital that is partnered with University of Toronto and suburban hospital RVH. Now I am here to help my clients to reach their inner peace and highest potential.

You're probably looking for a therapist you can relate, trust and vice versa
Being from a cross-culture family and having worked closely with diverse Canadians in the clinical setting and private setting have equipped me to help clients, particularly the young professionals to grow beyond borders and overcome overwhelming cultural and social location obstacles. I believe life is an adventure. We all go through ups and downs in our journey; there are times we need support from professionals. Sometimes, however, it can be hard to ask for help. I am approachable and compassionate. I strive towards creating a safe environment in which my clients can be true to who they are.
