Meet The Team


Dr. Edward Ng

Psychologist | Writer | Speaker

Edward En-Heng Ng is a Registered Psychologist in private practice in Vancouver. Prior to becoming a psychologist, Ed was a high school science teacher for 5 years in Vancouver and Hong Kong, and then, after attending Regent College (MDiv 2008), he pastored in a small congregation for another 4 years. After realizing that his theological studies did not suitably equip him for working with people, he enrolled at Fuller Theological Seminary’s Graduate School of Psychology (Pasadena, CA), from which he graduated with a Doctor of Psychology degree in 2016.

During his doctoral studies, Ed was introduced by his academic advisor Al Dueck to the field of cultural psychology, which focuses on how people groups tend to speak of themselves instead of relying on Western psychology to describe them. Ed’s enduring academic interest since then has centered around critical psychology and the applications of cultural psychology and relational psychoanalysis to clinical or counselling contexts.

Ed has taught at Trinity Western University and Regent College in the areas of diversity and counselling. He is also the founder of the Eastgate Project and hosts its podcast, which focuses on the intersections of psychology, theology, and the experiences of the Asian diaspora. Ed lives in Richmond, BC, with his wife and two sons.

Bernadette Amiscaray

Registered Clinical Counsellor

With a professional background in communications, Bernadette places a premium on building connections. She melds a love of words, metaphor, humour, and imagery with openness, curiosity, deep listening, and the ability to hold space for whatever needs to be held. Suspecting that counselling was her true(r) calling, Bernadette shifted careers and earned a Master of Counselling degree from Gonzaga University. Her love of learning inspired her to complete numerous additional trainings including in dream work, focusing, trauma, parenting, and more.

As a first-generation Filipina Canadian, Bernadette knows the spaces between—those moments and places in which an individual keenly feels that they just don’t fit. She leans heavily on depth-oriented psychotherapy (specifically the philosophies of Carl Jung), existential-humanistic, feminist, culturally aware, and person-centered forms of counselling; these modalities allow for in-between spaces and experiences of suffering to not only be explored in deeper ways, but to also potentially be better tolerated and honoured if they render some learning about who we are and what it means to live more fully as our whole selves. Bernadette’s perspectives on counselling have also been greatly informed by her own personal journey as a counselling client.

When not in session, Bernadette can be found reading too much political and news content and then telling herself that she needs to cut down on her political and news consumption. To balance things out, she reads short-story fiction, sings, and listens to music and thoughtful podcasts. She keenly collects big and tiny moments of joy and is genuinely thankful for every single day. Finally, Bernadette also spends her time with her family doing nothing and everything all at once, laughing with friends, and coming up with creative excuses to not work out.

Bernadette’s counselling inspiration: “We are not here to fit in, be well balanced, or provide exempla for others. We are here to be eccentric, different, perhaps strange, perhaps merely to add our small piece, our little clunky, chunky selves, to the great mosaic of being. As the gods intended, we are here to become more and more ourselves.” – James Hollis, Jungian analyst
