Description

Hello, I am Sylvia!

I am a Registered Play Therapist (RPT-USA) and a Registered Social Worker (RSW) in Vancouver with a master’s degree in social work.

Over the past decade in Hong Kong and Vancouver, I have been supporting children and families from diverse cultural backgrounds, including Asian, African, European and communities, newcomer and refugee families, in the hospital, preschools, and in the community.

Starry Wonderland Play Therapy is a safe and nurturing space for children where they can be truly themselves, process their experiences and express their feelings through PLAY!
