Daisy takes a holistic, genuine, and compassionate stance to provide trauma-informed and body-centered mental health support and relationship counselling for adults of diverse cultural backgrounds. Yoga and neuropsychology have proven to-date that we are born with incredible body wisdom. Daisy’s sessions will, therefore, bring focus on actualizing the mind-body-spirit connection to help clients establish a well-balanced, grounded, and conscious state of being. Bilingual in English and Chinese (Mandarin), and fluent in Japanese, Daisy’s multicultural upbringings from having lived and moved around the world have granted her a deep appreciation of cultural and individual diversities. Corresponding to her values of social interest and social justice, Daisy is passionate about empowering people in vulnerable situations by bringing awareness to various forms of social oppression and their longstanding impact. She is experienced and enthusiastic about accompanying individuals, couples, trauma survivors, LGBTQ, cultural minorities, and immigrants on their personal healing journey and spiritual growth.
