HI, I'M HARRY AU.
I’m Harry Au, a licensed therapist and Registered Social Worker. I am a second generation immigrant, and I enjoy working with unique and diverse clients.
In the past 10 years, I had the privilege to support individuals in the LGBTQ, Indigenous, people of colour, and sex workers communities. I aim to continue supporting these communities through counselling and mental health recovery.
My passion is helping socially conscious individuals build a meaningful and fulfilling life, and become the best version of themselves, one step at a time.
WE’RE A TEAM. EACH STEP OF THE WAY.
I’m here to support you, the amazing work that you do, and the vision you have for yourself and your communities. I truly believe that you can build meaning and joy in all parts of your life. I can help make it happen.
Through various approaches that are emotion and solution-focused, we’ll take a deep dive to understand your difficulties, and create tools and changes that work for you.
All I need from you? Be courageous. Let’s fully commit to your growth.
MY CREDENTIALS & EXPERIENCE
I have a Master of Social Work from the University of Toronto, and a Master of Arts in Gender Studies and Feminist Research from McMaster University. I also have a Bachelor's degree in Cultural Anthropology from the University of Toronto.
I worked extensively in trauma, with individuals who have witnessed family violence, to provide long term support in their lives. I have also worked in a mental health walk-in clinic to provide short-term, immediate support. I have a special interest in providing support for male youth around healthy masculinity.
Currently, I am volunteering as a therapist at 519 Community Centre, providing mental health support for the LGBTQ community in Toronto.
I speak and understand Cantonese fluently, with English as the primary language used during therapy session.
