Biography

I register with NZ psychologist board as a counselling psychologist and have been in private practice in Palmerston North for 1.5 years. I provide individual and couple therapy to adult clients. My individual work affiliates with eclectic approach, including CBT, MBCT, ACT, Body and emotions work, and psychodynamic psychotherapy, and tries to meet clients’ need in both brief or long-term counseling. I have completed Emotionally-Focused Couple Therapy training in NZ, which informs my work from relational lens and better equips me to work with emotions with both couple and individual clients. Coming from Taiwan, I honor multicultural perspective with clients from various backgrounds. Mandarine counseling I also provide. I am keen to provide EAP services because work is crucial to healthy human life. I have a plethora of study and work experiences in different setting, which helps my understanding of adaptation process to organizations. Before coming to NZ, I have worked in secondary school as a guidance counselor, case worker for dementia patients and their families, and as a counseling psychologist in a counseling center. I have a BA in economics and worked in banks. Later on, I acquired a MS in psychology in Taiwan and a MA in counselling in USA. I helped clients manage co-worker conflicts, cope with anxiety in graduate schools, setting appropriate goals in work, and support career choices in my private practice in NZ. One of my client commented our 1st session to be more helpful than the EAP he had. This affirms me that empathic attunement is the gateway to clients’ wellbeing and conducive to coping strategy couching. I look forward to work with you to expand my service to more clients needing support in work and life.
