Areas of specialty: loss and grief, eating disorder, depression, relationship issues, sexual trauma

pro bono or low cost


Hi my name is Joanna Tong, a pending Licensed Professional Counselor Associate who provides counseling services in both English and Mandarin, specifying in areas like loss and grief, eating disorder, depression, relationship issues, and sexual trauma. Born and raised in Northeastern China, being able to work with college students for 7 years, and working in Children’s Advocacy Center in North Texas while provide counseling services to children who suffer from sexual abuse, have given me cross-cultural experiences and a heart for young generation. I understand that growing up in an Asian family nowadays means lack of expression of feelings or affections, it also means never talk about SEX with anyone in your family, it can be shameful to share sexual struggle with anyone. My approach to life hardships is to first build safe and trust relationship where people feel listened and understood, and then to explore what is going on in our body, mind, and soul that is causing confusion and hurt, hope could be found by gaining strength from a new belief and from a correction of thought. Small steps matter, your motivation matters.


Another specialty I have experienced in is helping full-time pastors, missionaries, and ministers in various organizations to talk through their family relationship issues, burn out, and even spiritual struggles. God’s servants are human beings too, when they treat themselves as superman, when the congregation and the Law tell them to behave like they are saints, stress and conflicts come along. Please feel free to reach out whenever you feel like you need a space to talk things through, so that we could walk with you and assist you to finish strong.



我的另外一个提供心理咨询的领域是在全时间牧师,传道,以及不同机构的宣教士群体中。我希望可以通过咨询服务帮助他们面对家庭关系问题,个人精力耗尽,甚至是一些灵性的挣扎。 人们通常忽略一个事实,就是神的仆人也是人,他们或者自己把自己看做超人,或者在所服侍的群体中感受到这样的期待,长此以往会产生压力和关系的张力,也会随之而来产生很多心理状况。如果您觉得需要一个地方分享你的挣扎,欢迎联络我,我们愿意与你同行,助您走完全程。
