Thank you for being here. You must be wondering who I am and whether I can help you with your challenges. It’s not always easy to find someone you can trust who is also the right fit. I hope that this page aids your decision. If I turn out not to be the right person for you, I sincerely hope that you continue your search until you find someone who is. Give yourself the gift of counselling. It will make a difference.
Who I am
I’m passionate about helping people like you live a life that is emotionally balanced and fulfilling. For the past 17 years, I’ve used a unique combination of professional skills, life experience, and compassion to help hundreds of clients experience significant improvement with challenges such as stress, burnout, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, relationship difficulties, career concerns, existential/spiritual concerns, and personal growth. My approach is integrative and holistically tailored to meet each client’s unique needs.
I have a Master’s degree in Counselling from the University of New Brunswick, Canada. I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor (Certificate #52) and a member in good standing with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. I’m also a registered member of the College of Licensed Counselling Therapists of New Brunswick (License # LCT17-109). Fluent in English and Mandarin, I serve clients from all cultural backgrounds and walks of life. Sessions are available either in person or via a secure video platform. Over the years I have served clients ranging from new immigrants to seasoned professionals in leadership roles.
I strongly believe in professional excellence through continuous education. I take professional training courses every year, sometimes several times a year. The following two are examples of the training courses I enjoyed and found beneficial to my work: Clinical Training for Mind/Body Medicine offered by Harvard Medical School, Department of Continuing Education, and Externship Training in Emotionally Focused Therapy with Dr. Sue Johnson at the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy.
I have over 30 years of experience with making successful major changes/transitions. Born and raised in China, I moved to Germany and later to Canada as a young adult. I built my life and a thriving professional career from the ground up in a new and challenging environment. It was far from easy. I’ve gone through many challenges both personally and professionally. These experiences sparked my initial interest in psychology and later motivated me to choose a career in helping others overcome their challenges. I understand experientially what it takes to not only survive but thrive in the face of life’s challenges. My life experience has helped me develop a peaceful and optimistic outlook, a profound sense of purpose and meaning, a deep appreciation for the complexity of life, and great respect and understanding for people who struggle to meet life’s many challenges. I use what I’ve lived and learned in my work with my clients.
I’m an avid reader and a life-long learner. I enjoy lively conversations, quiet reflections, nature walks, and great movies. I have the good fortune of living in picturesque Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.
