Insight Psychological Therapists - Zoey Liu

Zoey Liu, Registered Provisional Psychologist, MA, (She/Her)

Welcome!  My name is Zoey and I am a Registered Provisional Psychologist.

My approach to therapy is client-centered and collaborative. I believe that you are the expert of your life, and that therapy works best when you are the driver’s seat. I invite you to share what is working and what is not working about therapy every step of the way. My goal is to create a safe, supportive, and resourceful space to amply equip you with the tools you need to thrive.

More About Zoey Liu

I believe people are resilient and have the power to overcome and grow from difficult circumstances and trauma. Sometimes, they just need a hand. I see therapy as a safe and non-judgmental space for you to explore your current resources and learn new tools so you can live your best life. In therapy, I will support you through your challenges and we will celebrate your strengths.

As a therapist, I draw from multiple theoretical approaches including Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Exposure Therapy, Emotion-focused therapy, Narrative Therapy. Additionally, I use Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) in helping my clients heal from trauma. In work with couples, I am heavily influenced by the Gottman Method.

I am excited to meet you!
