My work focuses on young people and adults who often have problems with:

  • Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity (ADHD) assessment and treatment: working alongside psychiatrists, schools etc to better support clients who are seeking diagnostic clarification and/or treatment of ADHD and comorbid symptoms
  • Depression: feeling down, numb, not motivated
  • Anxiety: worrying about the future, feeling panicky, anxious around people
  • Video games & technology: excessive or compulsive use of video games which is a barrier to daily life
  • Relationships: things not going well with friends, family, or issues at school/work place
  • Bilingual: can speak Mandarin and Cantonese
  • …and many, many more

In our sessions, it will be a space where clients will be listened to, supported and challenged to remove obstacles from the road they’re on. I am interested in the story of where things are now, how they came to be, and how we can work together to overcome problems whether they be mountains, or molehills.

I am consistently amazed by the strengths that clients carry within them and look forward to sharing in their unique journey as a fellow traveller.

Besides being the founder of Living Life Psychology, I am also working as a Senior School Psychologist at Knox Grammar. I also draw from previous extensive experience (8 years+) in community mental health, private practice, headspace and child protection.

I employ only the latest evidence based practice (e.g. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, mindfulness) when working with clients, and would describe my style as integrative and holistic.

Outside of being a psychologist, I enjoy health and fitness, spending time with friends, the occasional Netflix show, travel, video games, and keeping up with memes.

Thank you for reading and hope to see you soon.
