Discovering Your True North

We chase milestones, build careers, tick off boxes – adulthood's checklist seems endless. Yet, somewhere between "achieve" and "fulfill," a whisper of hope lingers. The world promised champagne, but we're facing a labyrinth of responsibilities, wondering if there's more.

This is where I come in, not as a solution manual, but as a fellow traveler on the winding path of self-discovery. Together, we'll explore the intricate landscape of your experiences, where challenges might have dimmed your inner spark and anxieties built hidden walls.

Forget one-size-fits-all solutions. Our path is yours alone, uniquely crafted around your story. We'll untangle the knots of self-doubt, illuminate hidden strengths, and empower you to rewrite your narrative. In this safe space, you'll rediscover your personal compass, charting a course towards a life that resonates with your true self. Whether you speak English or Mandarin, I'll be your empathetic listener, your translator of emotions into understanding.

We'll navigate the terrain of your thoughts and feelings with care, untangling those knots of self-doubt and uncovering strengths you never knew you possessed. In this safe space, you'll rediscover your true north, charting a course towards a life that feels authentic and deeply fulfilling.

Ready to reclaim your own narrative and write a chapter titled "Thriving"? Let's embark on this exploration together. Schedule your 15-minute consultation today and begin the adventure of rediscovering your full potential.

心理咨询师是我从小就梦寐以求的职业。记得在我父亲陪伴下漫步于重庆枇杷山公园时,我们会讨论那些存在主义的问题,比如“我是谁?”或者“我为何而来到这个世界上?”以及“人经历死亡后去向何方?”这些问题如同一盏明灯,引领我前往美国,经历了多份不同的工作,最终选择了现在的道路。

在枇杷山公园里,我感受到了生命的意义和价值。我和父亲一起探讨人生的终极问题,让我对自己有了更深刻的认识。这些问题也激励我去探索世界,去寻找自己的人生道路。

我的家乡重庆,是一个充满活力和魅力的城市。小时候上学路上,我常因抵御不住街边小摊的美味香气而前去品尝一份“早午餐”,甚至因此而迟到,被老师罚站。作为一个无可救药的吃货,我一直在寻找能够再现家乡风味的餐厅,但即使在纽约这样的美食之都,也难以找到媲美重庆桂花园苍蝇馆子的美味。

重庆是我的家,我对它有着深厚的感情。自小在重庆长大,那里的一切都让我感到熟悉和温暖。生活在美国让我见识了包容万象的纽约和阳光明媚的加州,但也远离了重庆的山水。

作为一个电影迷,我见证了香港电影的黄金时代,并因为对港式文化的热爱,自学了粤语。多年前,香港旅游文化局的广告语“香港,让我发现另一个自己”至今让我心头潮涌不已。我的人生观也受到了无数TVB主角的塑造,既眷恋温馨街坊的老友,又憧憬成为一个成功的职场精英。

香港是我对外面世界的最初印象。游览香港迪士尼,让我对好莱坞产生了浓厚的兴趣,并萌生了亲身体验美式文化的憧憬。

如果你能看到这里,你也许能共情这样一些感受,内心充满了各种矛盾的渴望。你想追求自己的梦想,但又需要承担现实的责任。你渴望得到他人的理解和支持,但又害怕被拒绝。你在寻找一个安全、私密的空间,可以卸下伪装,真诚地面对自己。

心理咨询或许可以为你提供这样的安全和私密的空间。你可能听说过一些心理咨询师无法提供足够共鸣的故事,但你仍然愿意给心理咨询一个机会。我不能百分之百保证我可以解决每位来访者的问题,但我会尽我所能,为你提供所需的帮助。在进入咨询服务之前,我会为每位来访者提供30分钟的免费咨询,让你可以凭直觉决定是否选择我作为你的咨询师。

我相信,心理咨询可以帮助你更好地了解自己,也是一种值得的尝试去解决内心的困惑。我愿意成为你在心理咨询路上的伙伴,陪你一起成长。
