While living in Hong Kong Dorice earned an M.Ed. in Guidance and Counseling from Newcastle Upon Tyne University, Newcastle, United Kingdom and her M.A. in Counseling Psychology from City University of Seattle, Bellevue, WA, USA. She now has 15 years of counseling experience both overseas and in the US. This has given her the advantage of having much cross-cultural exposure which has broadened her view of how people function and view their world.
A counseling theorist once said, “Problems never exist in a pure state; there is always a human being attached to them”. It is Dorice’s commitment as a counselor not to some kind of particular problem/issue but to the total human being who brings along with her/him complex emotional linkages to what s/he considers are distressing events encountered in her/his daily living. She further believes that a counselor has the responsible and person-valuing role which can transform counseling into a worthy process.
