She has over 6 years of clinical experience conducting assessment, diagnosis, and psychotherapy for children and adolescents with developmental disabilities and emotional problems, including autism spectrum disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, specific learning disabilities, developmental delay, anxiety, depression, oppositional defiant disorder, and developmental trauma. She has experience serving in a local non-governmental organization (NGO). Her time in NGO has allowed her to work closely with local preschools, primary schools, and secondary schools in providing both individual and group interventions for students, as well as training and consultations for teachers, school staff, and parents. She is a certified provider of the PEERS social skills intervention for adolescents as well as a certified facilitator of the Circle of Security Parenting program.
Growing up in Toronto, Canada, as well as Hong Kong, Melody is fluent in both English and Cantonese. She utilizes client-centered and play-based approaches in developing an accepting, empathetic, and genuine relationship with clients in therapy sessions. She employs evidence-based interventions, and is particularly experienced in providing cognitive-behavioral therapy to help children and adolescents cope with a range of emotional disorders, as well as behavioral interventions and parent training for children with developmental disabilities. By including family members in therapy, she hopes that parents can gain an understanding of the psychological needs of their child and feel empowered to take an active role in supporting their child’s development.
Sessions are conducted in English or Cantonese.
