I am a Korean-English speaking Registered Marriage and Family Therapist and Registered Psychotherapist Candidate. I am passionate about helping individuals, couples and families through Counselling. Following my passion, I got a Master’s Degree in Counselling in 2006, and then became a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist in 2010. I have special interest in Couple Therapy because I believe that good couple relationship is the foundation for healthy individual mental health and healthy family relationship. To deepen my knowledge and skills in Couple Therapy, I took Externship and Core Skills Advanced Training for Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy in 2010 and 2011. Furthermore, I took training for Premarital Counselling and became a certified Prepare-Enrich facilitator in 2013. I also have a strong background in woman abuse work and specialty in engaging men/fathers.

I demonstrate expertise not only in relationship issues but also in mental health issues. Working with clients with various mental health issues at Grace Health Centre and Hong Fook Mental Health Association for years, I understand that individuals with severe mental health issues need someone who listens to them with empathy and understand their difficult experiences. They also need good support from their families and communities. Liaising clients to community resources and collaborating with other agencies, service providers and professionals (e.g., family doctor, psychiatrist) is important. It is also important to provide psycho-social education for clients’ families. The families of individuals with mental health problems need as much support as their loved ones.

I am grateful when I witness my clients experience a sense of inner healing, empowered and get a direction to better deal with their presenting problems. It is delightful to watch in therapy couples and families getting the kind of relationship they want, where they feel safe, loved and connected with their loved ones.
