Monique is a recent immigrant from Hong Kong after being an international student here for over a decade. Cantonese is her mother tongue; Mandarin and English are her additional languages. Her professional interest lies in the role culture and race play in our being, including mental health, gender and sexual orientation. Her practice philosophy is that everyone is the author of their stories. She believes human connection is the basic ingredient for healing. Her counselling approach empathizes the mind-body connection through the lens of cultural humility, somatic experiencing, narrative therapy, and mindfulness practice.
