With an empathic and gentle demeanor, Lihchin helps clients feel safe in sharing about their complex and often overwhelming difficulties. Having worked with clients of diverse ethnicities and social identities, Lihchin adopts a culturally-informed practice and strives to understand each individual in their unique cultural environment.
Lihchin’s life goal is to work herself out of a job! She strongly believes in empowering clients so that they can resolve difficulties on their terms. By creating a safe space in which clients are guided to focus on their thought-process and emotions, Lihchin helps clients better understand themselves so as to make decisions that enable living more authentic and congruent lives.
Lihchin adopts an integrative approach in her clinical practice, combining Client-Centred, Cognitive-Behavioural (CBT), and Emotion-Focused philosophies. She has helped many clients live a full life even as they manage mental health challenges, grief and loss, and other social-emotional difficulties. Lihchin is also trained in family mediation, child-inclusive mediation and counselling, and has helped many couples (and their young children) work through divorce whilst prioritizing the best interests of their children.
