As a clinical counsellor and trauma therapist specialized in relationship and trauma, my path started from helping myself out of my own struggle in life. Through the process of healing, studying counselling and the practice to help my clients, I know as human beings pain or trauma is part of our lives as we grow up; I know that we are all fragile yet strong and resilient, that’s why we walk through all the difficulties and stand here as we are; I know that we as human beings are wired in healing and self-righting, that’s where we can heal any time if we allow ourselves to access to it; And most important, I know that we are all relational, and authentic, congruent therapeutic relationship is the precondition that the healing could happen.  ​

In counselling we work together in a safe and supportive environment helping you understand your unique situation and assisting you in dealing with your issues. My approach is based on neuroscience and attachment theory, healing-oriented, emotion-focused, body-based and relational. I am dedicated to helping you step out of the shadows of the past, regain confidence and strength, live the fullest of your lives; or help you and your partner transform your feelings towards each other, rebuild the connection, intimacy, and love between both of you.

In my leisure time, I like reading, hiking, delicious food, movie, music. These are the ways I nourish and relax myself. I also learn and practice Zen which helps me build a calm, compassionate base to help you deepen your feelings and healing experiences.

I am LGBTQ-friendly therapist. I offer online and in-person sessions, either in English or in Mandarin.

"I feel so grateful to meet you. The sessions with you completely changed me. Now I am able to sooth the wounded child by myself instead of struggling in emotional turmoil. I feel more confident to get along with my boyfriend. I regret that I haven't met you earlier."

"The therapy with you helped me so much. Now I can be open to what could happen and it does not need to be what I thought it would be like. And I don't have to keep everything, it doesn't mean it wasn't there before. I appreciate I was there."
