Welcome to a journey of psychotherapy!
 
When you are looking at this profile, you are probably concerned about yourself to the point that you want to seek help. You may be experiencing intense emotions/strong feelings, like fear, anger, sadness, loneliness or helplessness, and it has been impacting on your life, such as your relationship, work, sleep... You are likely to have questions on how psychotherapy can help and which therapist will fit. Let’s slow down and take a deep breath... I would first like to applaud your decision to seek help because it takes courage. This is a significant sign of your readiness to acknowledge your issues and to make changes.

Who We Are 
 
 
 

Elaine Lam is a registered psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapist of Ontario and a post-Academic member of the Canadian Association of Psychoanalytic Child Therapy.  She has a Masters degree in Psychology and post-graduate clinical trainings in the areas of CBT, EMDR, Psychodynamics, Motivational interviewing, Solution-Focus, Mindfullness and Play Therapy.  With over 13 years of clinical practices, Elaine has rich experiences in working with a wide range of clients in different settings (individual, couple and family).
 
Elaine is specialized in the following areas:
 
Anxiety
Depression
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Trauma
Addiction (gambling, internet/gaming)
Marital issues
Parenting
Adolescent issues
Children behavioral and emotional issues
Mild spectrum of ADHD and Autism

Elaine is fluent in Cantonese, Mandarin and English.  She believes the strong rapport between the client and the therapist (i.e.,therapeutic alliance), is the key to the effectiveness of a treatment, is built by providing linguistic and cultural sensitivity with client-centred environment.  She values the holistic view of human well-being and offers integrative approaches to meet the needs of the client.

Elaine takes great pride in her work because she has the privilege of meeting and walking with hundreds of courageous and resilient men and women, children and elderly, in her sessions. She believes problems and challenges in life are inevitable but they are not meant to destroy us.  In contrary, they are meant to make us stronger and to eventually gain enough wisdom to accept, embrace and appreciate the goodness and badness of life. Elaine believes psychotherapy not only can provide a healing process but can also offer a transforming process for an individual’s growth. One of Elaine’s favourite quotes is “I am no longer the victims of my problem but the survivor of my problem”.

Elaine is also an active member of the community and participated in multiple TV and radio interviews (Fairchild TV, Omni 3, 1430 and 1540), seminars/workshops and forums to increase the awareness of mental health in the Chinese community.

Elaine is a mother of two, loves spending her time with her kids, husband and friends, likes to run and meditate in early morning to enjoy the quietness and freshness of Markham.
