About DK Counselling & Denise Kan

For over 15 years I have worked in the human services field. This includes 10+ years of inter-disciplinary clinical experience in inpatient, outpatient, and community mental health settings. My background includes diagnostic assessment, psychotherapy, and community education.

Counselling Style & Skills

I am a compassionate, friendly, positive, and open-minded counsellor. I work well cross culturally, having worked in Hong Kong, New York City, and Washington, DC in the USA as well as in BC, Canada.

Having trained, lived, and worked in diverse cultural and linguistic societies, I have first-hand experiential understanding of the issues of immigration, adaptation, and settlement, as well as life transition, and grief and loss.

I am passionate about transcultural issues and interventions and am tri-lingual in English, Cantonese, and Mandarin.
