Joey Chang, B.Ed, M.Ed (Candidate)
Joey is thrilled to be completing an internship at Imagine Counselling. He is a full-time elementary school teacher currently completing his final year in a Masters of Education in Counselling. Prior to his arrival to Imagine Counselling, Joey interned in school settings as an elementary school counsellor working with students with emotional and behavioral challenges.
As a new immigrant growing up in Canada, Joey recognizes the importance that diversity can bring to one’s identity. He approaches each client with a genuine enthusiasm to hear their story on who they are and who they wish to be. He believes understanding one’s community is key to discovering how we are shaped and seeks to help clients who are having difficulties with anxiety, stress and sense of self.
With 10 years of experience in the school system, Joey has a profound respect for the power of connection. From his extensive background in working with children with exceptionalities, Joey believes in meeting people where they are at. He advocates that people do the best they can with what they have and seeks to support people who are struggling to find their voice, with empathy and respect. His aim as a counsellor, is to walk alongside individuals amidst their challenges through a person-centered and collaborative approach while developing his skills under the guidance of Cathy.
Joey is accepting new clients in person. He provides counselling services in English with consultations in Mandarin and Taiwanese.
As a graduate intern, Joey will be under direct supervision of Cathy Tremblay, along with the support of his university.
