Esther Chow

EMDR Certified Therapist

FHL Clinics

I came from Hong Kong and have resided in Vancouver for over 25 years. I am married and blessed with a family of 4. I am fluent in English, Cantonese, and Mandarin.

I graduated from University of British Columbia with Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, Trinity Western University and Seminary with Master of Counselling, and Regent College with Master of Arts in Theological Studies.

I have received training in Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy. With my continual study in Structural Dissociation Theory, Ego States Therapy, and other trauma-informed therapy models, I hold a systemic view on the complexity of our inner and external experiences and help clients navigate in the midst of relational and psychological health issues.

I have received training in Energy Diagnostic & Treatment Method. I often incorporate energy tapping as one of the tools in my practice.

I have completed Level 1 and Level 2 trainings in the Gottman Method Couples Therapy and I apply Gottman method when working with couples. I am also a trained Prepare-Enrich Program facilitator. I am certified to administer the program with couples in preparation for marriage or relationship enrichment.

I am a Certified EMDR Therapist and a registered member of EMDR International Association. I use EMDR therapy to help clients process and resolve impacts from past disturbing events. I am actively pursuing advanced EMDR trainings and other complementary modalities such as Deep Brain Reorienting (DBR).

I incorporate techniques from various evidence-based methods such as Dialectic Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) into my work.

I have completed a two-year training in Spiritual Direction at Christian Formation and Direction Ministry Pacific Northwest as providing soul care to my clients is a significant part of my passion.

I am currently working at a group practice, FHL Clinics, in Richmond BC with a team of amazing therapists. I also own a solo practice, Dei Gratia Counselling & Wellness, to provide online counselling and spiritual direction services.
