About My Clients
Do you think about what kind of person you'd like to be, but feel uncertain about how to make the change? Perhaps you feel like certain areas of your life such as relationships or work can be more fulfilling, but you're not sure how to get there. If you hope to live up to your potential and feel more clarity, peace, and freedom, you've come to the right place. I am here to support you in making powerful changes to your life with confidence, humour, and joy, bit by bit.
My Background and Approach
I marry the wisdom of Buddhist thought and the science of psychology to raise your self-awareness and exploration to the next level. I also use a multicultural lens to help you understand your context, and the environments that have shaped who you are. During the past 14+ years, I have fine tuned my approach to turn "becoming your best self" from abstract to reality, whether it is related to your personal, racial, or cultural identities, relationships, or work. By striking a balance between guidance, open exploration, and support, I can help you demystify the change process, so that you can become the master of your own life. Sessions will be maximized to deepen explorations, insights, and refine strategies. I will also be your accountability buddy to help you apply your learnings to your daily life in meaningful yet manageable ways. Practicing outside of session will help you internalize your new way of being, and inspire more insight to explore in the next session.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I am a multicultural, East/West Taiwanese-Canadian combo, educated in the US, and currently in pursuit of a slow(er) life. 🐌🌱 Other than counseling and life coaching, I provide executive coaching and consulting services to individuals and organizations, highlighting growth mindset and diversity/inclusion. I also provide supervision to other therapists to boost their self-awareness and counseling skills, because therapists are growing too! In my spare time, I enjoy walking with my pup, Puck, who is my personal mindfulness teacher, and eating the many yummy things my partner whips up while I do the dishes. You can join me for sessions early mornings (before 8am EST), or after 4pm PST / 7pm EST, Mon-Thurs & Sun. If you think we might be a good match, reach out! I'd love to get to know you.
