Phoebe Tsang


I am a Registered Marriage & Family Therapist-Supervisor (#2017290) of Canadian Association of Marriage & Family Therapy (CAMFT), a BC Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor (#1803) of BC Play Therapy Association and a Registered Clinical Counsellor (#1830) of BCACC.

I believe in the inherent worth of all human beings and our innate force to grow/heal beyond our difficult past.  I believe healing and growth takes place when people are in touch with their vulnerability in safe relationships.  Therefore, I strive to create "a relational home" (Epstein, 2013) for people to process their struggle and fragility, and work alongside with their families towards healing and growth.

I have been working as a mental health clinician in various settings (e.g. private practice, school, mental health outpatient, community mental health team, and public health) for over 20 years. I have served children aged 2 to 19 with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues (e.g.,anxiety, ADHD, depression, selective mutisum) and their families as well as adults aged 19 to 60 years old with emotional and physical issues (e.g. chronic pain, anxiety, developmental trauma, depression).  In the past 5 years, I focus on using Emotionally Focused therapy  developed by Dr. Sue Johnson to support individual, couple & families based on the attachment science.

I have specialized training span from individual therapy, somatic psychotherapy, play therapy, group therapy, family therapy, parenting coaching and and couples counselling.  I am a certified family trauma professional by the International Association of Trauma Professionals to provide trauma-informed treatment.  I completed Phase One Brainspotting training which is an effective method to work with anxiety and trauma impacts.  I am also the originator and a group leader of a highly rated mindfulness-based parenting group offered in Richmond Public Health.

As an Approved Clinical Supervisor in family therapy and play therapy, I specialize in the incorporation of play therapy into family therapy practice based on the attachment theory and neuroscience studies like Polyvagal Theory.  I provide individual and group supervision/ consultation to support therapist working towards the registration of RMFT and BCRPT.  I was given the People First Perceptor Award by the Vancouver Coastal Health in 2014 for my capacity in supervising intern therapists.  I was an adjunct professor in the Associated Canadian Theological Seminaries (ACTS) of Trinity Western University for 6 years. I taught graduate course and supervise graduate students in the Masters of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy (MAMFT) program.

I can provide therapy in English, Cantonese & Mandarin. My working hours are Friday (Burnaby office) and Saturday mornings (Vancouver office). However, limited in person Counselling appointments are available due to the BC Health's recommendation of physical distancing.  Online counselling is provided to mitigate the gap between the needs of services and the need for social distancing.
