Counselor Counseling Psychology Psychotherapy Counselling Counsellor Therapy Therapist Mental Health Nanaimo

Hi, I'm Phe (she/her).

I believe in the necessity of creating a safe, affirming, and supportive space allowing you the comfort to just be you. I see the natural healing power of a therapeutic connection and as your compassionate witness, I will hold space for you to share your story. Here, you will be heard and seen as your true self.

My approach is affirming and grounded in humility; allowing you to teach me about your intersecting social identities and how you experience and navigate your world. My practices are informed by Internal Family Systems (IFS), Narrative therapy, and Somatic Experiencing which assist us in exploring the roots of distress and nourish healing. Together, we will collaborate on an empowering journey at whatever pace feels right for you.

I am passionate about working with individuals from my LGBTQ2S+ community and racialized folks, from ages 14 and up. My lived experience as a queer, Chinese-Canadian woman may help me relate to struggles of those with similar intersecting social identities, yet this does not mean I know nor assume to understand your experiences, as you are the expert.

My areas of focus are:

- LGBTQ2S+ Individuals

- BIPOC (racialized) Individuals

- Minority Stress

- Identity (Exploration, Re-Storying, Acceptance, Integration, Transition)

- Gender and Sexuality

- Trauma and Healing

I’ve completed a Bachelor of Arts (Double Major) in Psychology and Sexuality Studies, and a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology. I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I am grateful to live, work, and play on traditional territory of the Anishinaabek, Haudenosaunee, Lūnaapéewak, and Attawandaron peoples. In my spare time, you’ll either find me doing outdoor activities or focused on creative outlets such as art, crafts, and DIY projects.

When you’re ready, please contact me or book online. I offer free 15-minute consultations for you to decide if I'm the right therapist for you.

I look forward to meeting with you to discuss your new journey ahead!

Session Fee: $175 (including all taxes) per 50-minute session.
