I am a provisional psychologist who is committed to delivering genuine person-centered and strength-based therapy and providing a space that is safe, welcoming and free from judgement or stigma. As a therapist, I aim to assist and support clients in exploring their unique values and identities. 

Through my lived experience, I have a deep understanding of the imbalance and distress we can feel when experiencing oppression or being unable to live our authentic lives. When supporting my clients – instead of assuming the expert position – I partner with them, exploring their potential and understanding who they want to be. During the therapy journey, my goal is to create a secure place where my clients can be heard.

I specialize in working with clients from minority communities, including cultural minorities, kink communities, and trans, intersex and gender diverse communities. My key areas of support include discovering self-identity, self-worth, and communication or emotional expression issues. In other ways, I strive to help my clients to be themselves because “unable to be ourselves” leads to a large amount of mental health struggles we may experience. I also work with couples and polyamorous relationships, providing kink-aware, and queer-allied support.

Within the professional boundaries, I believe my lived experiences as part of a sexual & cultural minority can be drawn upon as an asset in my work to be empathetic and understanding towards clients who may face shame and stigma. At the same time, I strive to be mindful of my value standpoints and avoid imposing my value system on others consciously or unconsciously. Additionally, as a provisional psychologist, and as a human being, I strive to ongoingly raise awareness of my competencies and will honestly communicate my limitations with my clients & supervisor and refer my clients when needed to maximize the benefits of my clients.

I work with a variety of evidence-based approaches including Schema Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Narrative Therapy and CBT. Importantly, I partner with my clients to choose the most suitable therapeutic approach working for them.

In addition to English, I also speak Mandarin and Cantonese. As a cultural minority myself, I have empathy for the challenges to work/live in an environment where you feel hard to express yourself freely. (我会说普通话和广东话,作为一个移民,我能体会当我们感觉自己不能在职场或者生活中自由表达自己的时候我们会感到痛苦).

As a provisional psychologist, I cannot provide Medicare rebates before obtaining my general registration with AHPRA.
