About Me

I acknowledge that I work and resides on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh speaking peoples and is grateful to be on this territory.


Growing up in Canada, from a family that immigrated from Fiji, and grandparents who fled from the war in China, I grew up in a household where several languages, traditions and ceremonies were interwoven with family values.  These rich cultures, traditions and values were often in conflict and brought deeper questions of navigating my cultural identity and sense of belonging.  This inward search strengthened my passion to serve diverse populations and to explore their personal stories and the complex challenges they face. 


I believe in supporting individuals by providing a warm, genuine and authentic space and by exploring their inner narratives, patterns and beliefs.  I feel that self-compassion, self-reflection and mindfulness are powerful tools in this process.  I have worked with individuals with challenges ranging from anxiety, stress, relationship conflicts, parenting, anger expression, cultural identity/adaptation and grief & loss.


I hold a Master’s degree (M.Ed) from Simon Fraser University (SFU) as well as Bachelor’s degree in Business from SFU.  In addition to my private practice, I also work as a school counsellor providing support to youth, parents and the surrounding community.  In my free time, I am often outdoors playing volleyball, cycling, enjoying the beach, reading or playing chess.
