Designation and Experience:
I am currently a Registered Provisional Psychologist. I have completed a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Psychology with Mount Royal University and a Master of Counselling through City University.
I have spent over nine years working alongside children, adolescents, and their families in a variety of settings. These include public and private schools, in-home support, residential programs, early-intervention programs, and non-profit organizations. I have experience working from a variety of modalities and work from an integrated approach when working with my clients. I have specialized training in Synergetic Play Therapy and formal psychoeducational assessments. I am passionate about helping families and children enhance their family functioning by setting achievable and sustainable goals. I believe that each child, adolescent, and family is unique, and that services should be curated as such.
What inspires you?
Children! Their resilience and ability to adapt is awe-inspiring and extremely humbling while working in this field. Furthermore, my clients as a whole are a source of inspiration for me. Their dedication to strengthening or improving their quality of life is an incredibly humbling journey to be a part of.
What are your proudest accomplishments?
Being able to give back to my community with the skills and traits I have acquired in my journey as a provisional psychologist is one of my proudest accomplishments to date. De-stigmatizing mental health in the Asian community through representation is an on-going journey as a collective, but I am proud to be part of this change.
What are your Hobbies and Interests?
Outside of work, I spend the majority of my time with my friends and family, or tending to my plants. My love for plants is connected to my own journey of mindfulness, which grounds me. If I’m in the mood for something more energetic, I hop onto my spin bike and channel my extra energy through an upbeat cycling class.
