I am a mental health counselor, practicing since 2011. I graduated in BS in Chemistry from University of London, United Kingdom and MS in Mental Health Counseling and PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision from Walden University, United States. I have worked with diverse populations across socioeconomics, race, culture, religion, sexuality and refugee statuses. My private practice in Hong Kong served professionals, including bankers, corporate executives, and academics. My human resource management background is an asset for understanding what are often challenging working environments for my clients. In addition to delivering traditional face-to-face counseling, I am trained and certified to provide telemental health counseling through video conference and email.
Prior to counseling I have worked as a retail manager and regional human resource manager for a national company and I have run my own retail business. I have raised a family, and I still continue to be active in a range of volunteer activities in the community, such as those promoting mental health amongst the LGBTQ and South Asian populations. While each of our experiences are unique and important, I believe these career experiences give me insight into workplace issues, providing a realistic context for the complexities you bring from your personal and professional world.
