I have many years of experience in individual and in group counselling which I assisted individuals, couples, families from diverse cultural and social economic background to address various issues such as, but not limited to:

1.  Interpersonal and/or marital relationships conflicts
2.  Premarital counselling
3.  Addiction
4.  Trauma
5.  Depression
6.  Anxiety

My theoretical orientation is eclectic and holistic in nature. I draw first on the faith foundations of a view of persons and then, I elaborate on most of the contemporary therapeutic models to form an integrative approach to individual, couple, family and group therapy. Thus, I use a number of different techniques and approaches from different counselling modalities to best fit my client’s therapeutic concerns and psychosocial, emotional, and spiritual needs. Some of those counselling approaches are, but not limited to:

1.  Solution-Focused Brief Therapy
2.  Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
3.  Existential Therapy
4.  Gestalt Therapy
5.  Reality Therapy
6.  Emotion Focus Therapy
7.  Psychodynamic Therapy
8.  Gottman Couples Therapy

Furthermore, I utilize spiritual interventions and techniques such as prayer and scriptures, if and when it is appropriate and in line with my client's value system.

I taught various counselling courses in the Diploma of Professional Counselling program (DPC) at Pacific Life Bible College (PLBC) in Surrey, BC.  Aside from teaching some of the DPC courses, I was also one of the Practicum Clinical Supervisors for the DPC Program. 

Presently, I am the Group Counsellor for the Diploma of Counselling Program (CNS) at Pacific Life Bible College (PLBC) where I facilitate Group Therapy for the CNS counselling students in training. Furthermore,

I believe everyone deserves to be treated with respect and to be empowered to live a life that is congruent with one's values and dreams.
