HI, I'M HARRY AU.
As a 1.5 generation immigrant who came to Canada as a kid, my identity has always been beautifully complicated. I went through my own journey to re-discover all my true selves, and built an integrated mega-self – full of joy, love, fear, and every other feelings inbetween.
And with you, I hope to do the same.
My passion is working with the unique you’s out there, to help you become the best version of yourself.
WE’RE A TEAM. EACH STEP OF THE WAY.
Your whole life, you’ve learned to fit in. And the thought of being your real, unique self makes you squirm with discomfort. But we’ll be taking it step-by-step. I’ll be here to support you during the lows, celebrate with you during the highs, and laugh with you at how silly our world can be sometimes.
Through various approaches that are emotion and solution-focused, we’ll take a deep dive to understand your patterns and difficulties, and create tools and changes that work for you.
All I need from you? Be courageous. Let’s fully commit to your growth.

For over 10 years, I had the privilege of supporting individuals in the LGBTQ, Indigenous, people of colour, and sex workers communities.
I worked extensively in trauma, to provide long-term support with individuals who have witnessed family violence. I have also worked in a mental health walk-in clinic to provide short-term, immediate support.

I speak and understand Cantonese fluently, with English as the primary language used during therapy session.
