On the surface, everything seems great.
You always give the impression that you're doing well. That's what people expect from you.
And yes, for the most part, you're a high achiever.
You seem well on your way to a great life. But why does everything feel so shitty?
Secretly, you're falling apart.
You're envious that other people can have a simple and easy life. But for you, that seems impossible.
Instead, you're worried about people judging you, and worrying about the "proper" thing to do. You try to make everyone else happy, and you end up feeling miserable...
Your duties to your parents, responsibilities at work...balancing friends and romantic partner(s)...and your social justice values...
You're tired of it all. You wonder when you can finally start living on your own terms.
But every time you want to do something different, an inner voice tells you that you can't. You feel helpless. And scared, not knowing what comes next. So you repeat the same day over and over again.
Let's work together, so you can finally figure out what you truly want, and how to take the first steps to pursue your deeper self.
It's complicated. I get it.
I’m Harry Au (he/him), a licensed therapist and Registered Social Worker in Toronto.
I know first-hand how hard it is to grow up with multiple cultures, the pressure to hold it together for everyone, and yearning for something not yet known.
Let's figure out what "thriving" can look for you.
Harry Au - MA, MSW, RSW
"As an Asian individual, I felt understood every time I spoke with Harry."
"Harry was so attentive, empathetic, and reflective about the experiences I shared with him. As an Asian individual, I felt understood every time I spoke with Harry.
He was incredibly comfortable to talk to. That speaks volumes to me as someone who has never went to therapy before. I felt valued even through sharing some deep grief, comparison issues, and dark moments. I highly highly recommend working with Harry."
