Hi, I’m Rachel Loong (she/her)

Therapy should be designed to fit the person, not mould the person to fit the therapy.

Rachel is a Registered Counsellor with a background in non-profit community work, where she has supported individuals facing systemic barriers in rebuilding their lives.

People tend to seek her support for a calm and compassionate presence to share vulnerable topics and find clarity amidst complicated circumstances.

Rachel integrates a curated range of therapies to suit each person’s unique path. Her lens is strength-based and holistic, considering the mind, body, heart, and spirit, while honouring social experiences and life stages.

One of the most important relationships is the one you have with yourself. Rachel gently guides clients to uncover the underlying sources of their struggles and deepen their self-understanding through reflective inquiry.

Your time together is also dedicated to learning psychoeducation and co-creating strategies that empower you with tools to facilitate change beyond sessions.

Rachel recognizes the existing stigma in many communities. That is why she is dedicated to making therapy approachable, human, and multicultural. Let’s redefine what is helpful for you and find light-hearted moments along the way.
