About Hui Ting


Am I the right fit?

Choosing the right therapist can be time-consuming. Looking through an online directory may produce tons of results! There are so many options and the process can sometimes feel overwhelming. Hence, I created this page to help you quickly determine if I might be the right fit for you. Every therapist is different, and it is important for you to feel confident in your decision.

I grew up in an international setting and speak several languages fluently, including Mandarin and Cantonese. Having lived in different countries, I am deeply familiar with the challenges of adaptation and acculturation. My approach to working with clients is strength-based, compassionate and goal-oriented. I have a special interest in working with individuals who are navigating life transitions and various aspects of their identify. I have extensive experience with people of diverse cultural backgrounds and I am sensitive to cross-cultural transitions, process of acculturation and diversity issues. In addition to providing life transition counseling, I also specialize in treating addiction, anxiety and depression.

As I view my role as one of supporting you in your self-discovery and development, I tailor my approach to your needs. In the initial phone consultation, I ask a few questions about what kind of support you’re looking for and I will suggest some options for what therapy could look like if we worked together. I value collaboration to ensure we are adjusting our work in such a way that best meets your needs. Clients who are the most successful in therapy with me are those who come ready to figure out what’s been keeping them stuck, take initiative, and are committed to their own growth.

I utilize several evidence-based theoretical approaches in therapy, some of the most common approaches I use:

  • Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

  • Motivational Interviewing (MI)

  • Mindfulness-based Interventions
