About Me

(She/Her pronouns)

I am Jocelyn and I offer individual counselling, couples counselling, and family counselling services for clients aged 16 and up. I am fluent in both English and Mandarin.

With over 17 years of experience in clinical settings, I specialize in the following areas:


  • Mental Health Issues (including but not limited to Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Anger, Addiction, Grief, Shame, Self-Esteem, Burn-Out, Stress, and Identity)
  • Attachment, Relationships, Conflicts and Communications (family relationships, intimate partner relationships, social interpersonal relationships etc.)
  • Trauma and PTSD (childhood trauma and significant life events)
  • Parenting and Caregiving stress and challenges
  • Fertility, Prenatal and Postpartum mood related issues


I have supported numerous clients through stress stemming from unique challenges related to having different roles at various life stages. 

I practice within the Anti-Oppression, Anti-Racism Framework with a strength-based focus and through trauma-informed lens. Drawing from my own experience of social intersectionality, including being a first-generation immigrant myself, I provide client-centered and culturally sensitive services, working with clients from diverse racial and cultural backgrounds. I am also proud to be an 2SLGBTQIA+ ally. 


Creating a safe and non-judgemental space for my clients to have a productive and meaningful healing and recovery experience is of utmost importance to me. I believe in the power of talk therapy and strength within oneself, and in making progress in our work in a gentle and supportive manner. I listen and would work with you at a pace that you are comfortable with, reaching your goals, and helping you regain calmness in life. 


I provide therapy utilizing and integrating multiple modalities in my practice, including Attachment-based Therapy, Trauma Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness, Solution Focus Brief Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Gottman Method, and different models of Family Therapy for clients aged 16 and up.
