Ginny Wong, MC, RCC, Counselor in Vancouver
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with a Master's Degree in Counselling, with over 30 years of experience as a social worker serving clients from all cultural backgrounds. In additions, I am an approved service provider for the Crime Victim Assistance program and ICBC clients. For the past 20 years, I have been working as a settlement counsellor and parent educator helping immigrants, refugees, and international students who are adjusting to life in Canada. I worked at The Canadian Red Cross and managed a team of volunteers that provided emotional support to parents and caregivers dealing with critically ill children.
My family members and I have gone through critical illness and car accidents facing life and death. My personal journey enriched my life experience in dealing with grief and loss, depression and anxiety, immigration and settlement challenges, parenting, and relationship challenges both at work and home.
I believe that everyone has inner resources to cope with life challenges. Change begins with choice. I will be with you making choices to transform life with an individualized experience. I understand that sometimes the hardest part is getting started. You can book a free consultation as a start.

Building Connection: You & Your Adolescent

This group is for Chinese immigrant parents to strengthen your parenting skills and a journey of self-discovery. Parenting is influenced by culture and values although in the case of adolescents who have gone through the immigration process, acculturation can have great impact on the psychosocial adjustment of your adolescent who are conflicted by the push and pull of two cultures. For 8 sessions, you will learn effective parenting strategies, set realistic expectations, improve communication with your adolescent; develop the confidence and skills to handle confrontations and conflict peacefully and enjoy being yourself and connect with your adolescent.
