Intern Counsellor

About David

My mission to help you recognize the power you hold and make sense of your life. I intend to create an environment that is respectful to all people on a fundamental level, and hope to foster emotional stability and self-awareness in a safe and hopefully fun manner.

In 2010, I moved to Canada at the age of 13 with my parents with about 200 words in my vocabulary. Thanks to the cultural diversity in Vancouver, I had the opportunity to interact and connect with people from all over the world that grew up in all sorts of different settings. These experiences of being a Chinese adolescent, Asian Canadian teenager and adult has given me a unique perspective and passion for the human condition. This passion led to me pursuing my Master of Counselling Psychology at Adler University in 2021.

I mainly work through a holistic approach focusing on genuine human connection and self-awareness. In our sessions together, we might explore any unfinished business from the past, problems you are facing in the present, or goals for the future. I can offer both an accepting environment to process your experiences and concrete skills to improve your quality of life.

Some days life feels extra difficult. You might have difficulty making the connection you want with the people around you; you might face some really hard decisions that seem impossible to make; you might be dealing with anxiety, depression, or anything else and just want life to be a little easier. Regardless of your goals, or whether you even have one, I am here to listen and help you figure things out.

I truly believe that through my help, all my clients can come to recognize what they have and what they need to live a more fulfilled and healthy life. It is always an honor to see clients grow and achieve their goals. Some of my specialization include:

    • Anxiety
    • Assertiveness
    • Boundaries
    • Communication
    • Goal setting
    • Interpersonal conflicts
