About me

Hello all,

My name is Wei-Shan. The pronunciation for my name is (way-sun like way to the sun).
I was working in the hospital to treat people who have depression and anxiety for a long period of time. Most of them struggle not just with diagnoses but with self-esteem and self-compassion. During my time working in the hospital, I encountered many people who have been diagnosed with BPD and Bipolar disorder. I've grown so much working with them and getting to know their world. I used CBT and DBT to help support my people and I love to use Motivational Interviewing to encourage people. I also worked in MAT treatment in the past. Seeing people who have a hard time with substance use and guiding them to build resilience is a great moment that I have.

Wei-Shan is an amazing therapist. She could read between the lines and help me understand the root cause of stressors even when I felt blind to it. Patient and respectful- is definitely recommend her!

Wei-Shan is always there to validate my experiences and help me rationalize through tough situations. She helps me understand myself better. She’s very flexible with scheduling too which makes it great when I need to decrease or increase our sessions depending on stress levels, big life changes, etc.

Wei-Shan is an excellent listener and pays close attention to details to understand what my needs are. I feel her follow up questions are effective and feedback is constructive, extremely helpful. Wei-Shan communicates well both during the session and follow up notes if needed. Her schedule availability works great with lots of flexibility to meet my needs. I recommend Wei-Shan if you are seeking a professional coach who isn’t afraid to create strong engagement and offer homework if that fits your needs.
Overall I couldn’t be happier with results I am seeing in a short time that continues to improve at each session.

I cannot recommend Wei-Shan highly enough to anyone with anxiety, especially if you have anxiety related to body issues. It is so evident how much I have grown since beginning with Wei-Shan that I even surprise myself with how altered my thought processes are and how I handle triggering situations. I am so much better for having had Wei-Shan as my therapist and am incredibly grateful for her help.

She is personable whilst remaining professional. She helped me overcome so much in such a short period of time and her use of modules was really helpful to me as they were clear guides to reflect on.

Thank you Wei-Shan!

If you’re looking to make real progress in your healing journey I highly recommend Wei-Shan. I have a crazy work schedule and she always did her best to accommodate my hours. She’s very response and always responds in a timely manner. Most importantly she genuinely cares about her clients and their well-being.

Wei-Shan has been amazing at helping me navigate the issues surrounding a toxic relationship. Without her guidance, I’m not sure I would be in the positive headspace that I am today. She’s patient, compassionate and positive.

Wei-Shan was absolutely fantastic in helping me with a very toxic relationship I was trapped in. Despite letting myself down numerous times, she was always helpful and understanding about the situation i was in and was able to help me overcome what i was going through.
I hope to remain in contact with her for years to come. Couldn't recommend her more =)

Wei-Shan is a wonderful and supportive therapist. She is very knowledgeable and has many tools at her disposal that she is able to teach which has helped me significantly. Conversing with her has been nothing but great. She listens very intently and asks great questions that help me think through my own thoughts in a way that is different to how I would do it myself. I also love that she is flexible with her approach and works with me every step of the way.

I'd 100% recommend her to anyone I know that's seeking therapy.

I have had a few sessions with Wei-Shan and she was great to work with! She was very attentive to what I was discussing and no matter how much time passed between sessions was always ready to pick right back up where we left off. I would definitely continue to see Wei-Shan in the future.

Thank you Wei-Shan for all of your support!
