Master of Counselling Psychology
Registered Clinical Counsellor
Young has a Master of Counselling Psychology degree from Adler University. She is a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the BCACC following completion of her degree. Young was born in South Korea, and has lived and worked in South Korea, Singapore, and Canada, bringing a unique cultural awareness to therapy.
Young believes that every individual has the strength and wisdom within themselves to overcome difficulties and create the life they desire. As a therapist, she strives to create a compassionate and safe space in which she collaborates with clients to identify their inner resources and explore ways to mobilize those resources effectively. Sometimes clients may have identities or narratives that are no longer serving them. Examining these together can help develop more adaptive approaches.
Working from an Existential-Humanistic perspective and an attachment-based lens, that positions clients as the experts of their own experiences, Young aims to create an authentic connection with clients while incorporating interventions and strategies from Emotionally-Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Solution-Focused Therapy. Young also incorporates Sensorimotor Psychotherapy as necessary for clients who are dealing with trauma.
Young provides counselling services in English and Korean.
