I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate, under the supervision of Robin Rice, M.Ed,
LPC-S, License No. 15843. I provide personal counseling as well as marriage and family
counseling in both English and Mandarin. I am experienced in helping clients strengthen self-
awareness, enhance self-esteem, understand and accept themselves, and improve relationships
with others.
 
After experiencing the success and failure in my past, and the gains and losses of significant ones
in my life, I followed the calling in my heart and obtained a master’s in professional counseling
at Dallas Baptist University, as well as the license. The learning process of professional
counseling and the deepening of my faith have given me a deeper understanding and acceptance of myself. The result of self-healing and self-growth has become the wealth of my life and an important source of support for my clients. I use a combination of client-centered therapy,
cognitive behavioral therapy, and Gestalt therapy to help clients explore themselves and their
relationships with others; moreover, I thrive to provide an environment where clients are fully
accepted and heard. 


In my opinion, relationships are a very important theme in life. The way a person views and
treats oneself and others will determine both the intrapersonal and interpersonal relationships,
and become the foundation of mental health. I focus on healing the injuries left through traumatic
experiences, biased or distorted perceptions, uncontrollable emotions or even emotions that come from nowhere, differences and conflicts between the partner, and conflicts with others. These experiences often leave different results known as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, stress, and trauma, but behind each result is a unique story of life. I am grateful for the trust and
openness of each client in the counseling room, and cherish every single sharing, as well as the
insights, healing, and growth brought about by the counseling process, which have become the
motivation of my career.

我是一名来自于中国大陆的心理咨询师。在经历了事业的成功和挫败,生命中重要人和物
的得与失,人生的起起伏伏后,顺应心里的呼召,我于2019年开始来到达拉斯浸信会大
学学习心理咨询,并于毕业后通过资质考试取得了美国心理咨询师的执业资质LPC-A。我
目前在Robin Rice (M.Ed, LPC-S License No. 15843)的督导下执业。我综合运用以客户
为中心的疗法、认知行为疗法和格式塔疗法来帮助来访探索自我以及与他人的关系,为来
访提供被接纳和被倾听的环境,帮助来访增强自我认知,提升自尊,理解和接纳自己以及
改善与他人的关系。


心理咨询的学习过程,和信仰的进深过程,使得我对人生前半段有了更深入的理解和接纳
。这个自我疗愈,自我成长带来的结果,成为我生命的财富,也成为能够为我的来访提供
支持的重要来源,使我可以帮助来访处理人际关系问题、依恋问题和灵性问题等。


在我看来,人生中一个很重要的主题是关系。每个人怎样看待自己和他人,怎样对待自己
和他人,会成就个人与自己和与他人的关系,并成为个人心理状态的底色。创伤性的经历
留下的伤害,偏颇或失真的认知,难以控制的情绪甚至不知从何而来的情绪,处理与伴侣

的不同和矛盾,与他人的冲突,都可以通过咨询得到帮助。这些状况带来了抑郁、焦虑、
低自尊,压力和创伤等问题,但是每个现象背后又是每个人独特的故事和人生。我很感激
每个来访在咨询室的信任和敞开,并且珍惜每个生命真实的分享,和咨询过程中带来的洞
察、疗愈和成长,这些成为了我职业的动力。
