Interpersonal relatioships can be rewarding yet it can also be frustrating and heartbreaking. Most of us struggle with relationship issues at some point in our lives. Let it be your spouse/parent/child/sibling/close friend, unresolved relationship issues impact our mood, focus, decision making, productivity at work, and it may spill into other relationships that we have. When trying to tackle it on your own isn’t working, it may be worth it to seek professional help.
My specialty is relationship issues. I see individuals with troubled relationship and also couples in marital/couple counseling. If you are wanting to get closer to someone, it requires you to look within yourself, rather than focus on changing the other person. Don’t get me wrong, for all the emotional turmoils this person may have caused you, rightfully so you would want to hold on to the feelings of hurt, anger, disappointment and resentment. Ask yourself if it is more important to be right or to work on improving that relationship? If your answer is the latter, I love to assist you!
Another passion of mine is to serve individuals, couples and families of Asia and South East Asia background. Having to navigate among those ‘unspoken rules’ of many traditional Asian families can be a challenging task! For many of us who are born into the traditional Asian family, we learned from the early age that there are many rules, such as respect for one’s parents and elders, putting others’ needs before one’s, are expected to be obeyed without question. And you will be punished for breaking those rules, often time through shaming within the family, extended family and even community.
Being bicultural and multilingual, I understand those ‘unspoken rules’. I feel rewarded to assist my clients in finding the delicate balance between individual and family needs. I provide therapy in English and Mandarin.
Counseling is not for everyone as it requires courage and commitment. If you’re ready to face your challenges, I’m here to help!
