PHILOSOPHY:

 


Brenda believes that healing comes from a willingness to deeply experience, explore, and feel one’s emotions that are related to both present and past circumstances.  The process of understanding one’s feelings and emotions allows us to explore what is most troubling us, such as: depression, anxiety, grief, or other symptoms that constrict our lives.  Her goal is to help others to become aware of new perspectives into the experiences that confuse or trouble them, and help them develop the strength to change and have a more control in their life.  
Brenda has worked with diverse cultures, and respect each individual brings in their uniqueness. She is fluent in English, Cantonese, and Mandarin. She is presently working in her private practice located in Richmond Hill and Mississauga, Ontario.  To learn more about her and her approach to psychotherapy, please go to www.brendachan.ca
