supporting individuals & Couples in langley
I’m a firm believe that “it takes a whole village to raise a child” and, similarly, that a whole network of support is essential throughout adolescent and adult development too. Whether you are struggling alone or already have a few resources in place, working with a qualified counsellor strengthens you with valuable support and resources and helps you overcome difficult periods of a life stage and/or difficult life changes.
Hello, I’m Deborah Fung based in Langley, British Columbia. As an experienced Registered Clinical Counsellor and fellow human being, I know that seeking help, pursuing change (in ourselves or someone else), and confronting challenges in our lives can be a nerve wracking and terrifying endeavour. I know that it takes a lot of courage to research all the options and decide to reach out. I urge you to push forward. I urge you to persist in making change.
Wherever you are in your process, I join you with compassion, non-judgement, graduate-level training and clinically practiced experience so that you feel safe and supported as you work towards the changes you desire.
I provide short term 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 video counselling are available.
If you’re ready to reach out, schedule a free phone consultation or book an appointment! I look forward to talking with you.
customized help for your specific needs
Counselling can help you overcome a range of mental health struggles and personal hardships. To help you make noticeable and meaningful changes through our counselling process, we dive deep into your concerns within the context of your circumstances and your individuality. I integrate techniques and strategies from evidence-based theoretical approaches so that the therapeutic process of attaining change is most supportive and custom fit to you.
On the surface, other clients' concerns may sound familiar to you:
You want to overcome debilitating stress, anxiety, and depression;
You feel paralyzed by grief and/or loss of a relationship of someone significant in your life;
You and your partner are fighting to save your relationship—or fighting continuously, unable to resolve conflicts.
You are aching for a sense of belonging and greater self-esteem, to feel more calm and engaged in your daily living.
You are searching for a clearer sense of direction in your life.
In our work together, we honour the unique qualities that separate your story from someone else’s—so that ultimately, you overcome the tough stuff in a way that aligns just for you.
So tell me, what are you struggling with in this moment? What is your story today?
