I am a clinical social worker and have been practising marriage and family therapy over 20 years. I have extensive training on systemic & strategic family therapy, solution focused brief therapy as well as clinical hypnosis. I have completed all levels of Gottman couple therapy training and is a Certified Gottman Therapist.
In the last 20 years, I have been specialising in working with children and young people who suffer significant mental illness as well as couples who suffered from relationship difficulties with a combid mental health condition including anxiety disorder, depression, drug and alcohol dependency etc.
In working with couple, I integrate the Gottman Method of Couple therapy with the systemic & solution focus concept. I chose the gottman method for couple therapy because of it is research and evidence informed as well as it provides a very practical and skill based approach to couple to learn to resolve their relationship difficulties. The approach is very empowering and generate hopes for couples.
I believe most people have more resource than they are aware. People have more capacities to learn more skills than thought of themselves. Therefore, as a therapist, it is my job to work with them to discover their potential and find their own solutions to their difficulties.
In my practice, I offer psychosocial treatment to the followings:
Couple & Relationship problems using Gottman Method
Child & Youth Mental Health
Parenting difficult adolescent
Anxiety & Panic Disorder
Trauma and PTSD
Drug & Alcohol Dependency
Chronic Pain Management
Grief & Loss
Other significant mental illnesses including Psychotic Disorder & Bipolar
