Kristen Yang, RCC and Clinical Counsellor at Bloom Counselling Vancouver

Meet Kristen 

Registered Clinical Counsellor

Therapy is a space for you to explore, process, and grow from your experiences – past, present, and future

I am a cisgender woman of colour (she/her). My parents immigrated as children from Hong Kong and the Philippines, and settled in Canada.

I specialize in supporting people with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, life transitions, and identity exploration. As a millennial myself, I especially love working with young adults with diverse cultural identities and backgrounds, including local and international post-secondary students, as well as young professionals.

As a 2.5 generation immigrant and settler, I understand how

oppression, exclusion, and marginalization can affect our mental health. I believe in the importance of working to undo the stories and narratives that harmful systems have imposed on us, so we can discover who we really are, and what is meaningful for us.

With my clinical experience in post-secondary and community mental health settings, I can be solution-focused and goal-oriented as needed, while also making space for deeper emotional work. Giving ourselves permission to express previously rejected emotions, sensations, or parts of ourselves can be an opportunity for deeper healing and growth. My clients have shared that they feel safe, listened to, and cared for in working with me.


In my spare time, I enjoy creative writing, exploring nearby towns and cities, and visiting new places to eat and drink. I also love yoga, meditation, paddle boarding, hot baths, personality tests, and the occasional reality TV show to unwind in the evening.
