Who am I?

I am a Chinese-Canadian (with roots in India and Sweden), cis-gendered female, who strives to live life as authentically as possible and have found a passion in helping others do so as well. My diverse cultural background informs my therapeutic practice as I honour the unique perspectives and values of each my clients and do not believe in a 'one-size-fits-all' approach. Last but not least, I feel strongly about normalizing therapy within the first-generation Canadian community, which is deeply rooted in my personal experiences. I understand the intricacies of cultural adaptation, the weight of family expectations, and the layers of adjustment that come with embracing a multicultural identity. Through my empathetic and person-centred approach, I aim to create a safe and validating space where clients can openly explore their emotions, aspirations, and cultural journeys.

Upon graduating with a Bachelor's in Sociology and a minor in Psychology from McMaster University, I entered the corporate world and worked in various roles in HR, sales, customer success and project management. I found myself dissatisfied and in search of something more meaningful which I had yet to find. Through my own personal therapy, I was able to discover a path that felt truly aligned with my authentic self. This led to me pursuing a Master's in Counseling Psychology at Yorkville University to fulfill my calling as a therapist. My unconventional journey has provided me with a distinct perspective and a deep appreciation for life's complexities.

Outside of my work, I enjoy trying new experiences, exploring different cultures through travel, and cherishing quality time with loved ones.
