professional support in langley
The old saying reminds us, “it takes a whole village to raise a child.” Yet, a whole village—or in other words, a whole network of support—is so essential throughout our adult development, too. Whether you are struggling alone or already have a few resources in place, professional support from a qualified counsellor helps you overcome suffering during challenging periods of a life stage or difficult life changes; counselling recovers and improves feelings of health and wellness throughout your life span.
Hello! I’m Deborah Fung based in Langley, British Columbia. As an experienced Registered Clinical Counsellor and fellow human being, I join you with warmth, compassion and non-judgement so that you feel safe and supported as we help you engage in self-exploration, deepen self awareness, and work towards the changes you desire. In our process, you come to witness your own strengths again—and begin to develop new ones.
I provide brief and long term counselling for high school, prospective and current post-secondary students, adults, and couples in English and (some) Cantonese. You can conveniently reach me from the surrounding areas of Langley, Surrey, Cloverdale, Maple Ridge, and Abbotsford. Telephone and online/video counselling are available.

meeting your specific needs
Whether your focus is on short-term or longer-term issues, counselling helps to strengthen your resiliency and coping skills so that you can better manage your current challenges and prevent future similar ones.
Counselling helps you overcome a range of mental health struggles and personal hardships. I have helped individuals overcome debilitating stress, anxiety, and external pressures; as well as multiple symptoms of post-traumatic stress and trauma. I have helped clients develop stronger relationships and sense of belonging; achieve greater self-esteem; feel more calm, present and engaged in daily living; and overall, have a clearer sense of direction in their life. So while you may be having a hard time in this moment, counselling can help you make noticeable changes and big improvements in order to live life fully again.
Having specialized with international students at Canadian universities for many years, I am keenly sensitive to cultural and generational differences in values and expectations. I hold a strong interest and unique ability supporting transition to post-secondary, cultural adjustment to Canada, issues with academics, and managing family expectations around achievements, boundaries, and career plans.
