李文芮

I believe that counseling is a process to explore inner strength and nurture self. You will start and continue the healing process through finding yourself and accepting yourself. I believe that developmental trauma can influence one's life profoundly. You may find it is difficult to manage your emotions and relationships, and these issues may result from past traumatic learning. In fact, developmental trauma is reversible. In my trauma focused counseling, you will be able to learn practical ways to increase inner power and experience a life with quality.


I graduated from University of North Texas and I have been providing counseling since 2017. I used to work at a domestic violence nonprofit and a psychiatric hospital named University Behavioral Health. Most of people I worked with have experienced moderate to severe trauma, included but not limited to emotional abuse and neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, sexual assault, domestic violence, and school bully. I dedicate myself in helping people to understand their traumatic experience and develop effective strategies to cope with flashbacks, body memories, dissociation, nightmares, toxic shame, inner critics, self-hatrass and other trauma related symptoms. 


I would provide a safe space for you to tolerate vulnerability and 

reconnect to yourself. I believe love and compassion can be created in a safe relationship and result in powerful inner strength. It's my honor to be in the healing process with you and I would love to meet where you are in the journey.

我是一位华人心理咨询师。我毕业于北德州大学的心理咨询专业,并于2017年开始咨询生涯,目前在德州达拉斯附近执业。我观察到很多中国人以及中国移民饱受家庭关系的困扰,无论是原生家庭还是成年后的亲密关系,很多人会说 “这就是生活”,然后默默忍受暴力关系所带来的伤害。这些观察让我倍感普及心理健康知识的迫切,以及专业治疗创伤的重要性。


我曾就业于一家反家暴非营利组织,也曾在一家精神科医院做创伤治疗师,这些工作让我接触了许多的创伤来访。很多人的抑郁和焦虑情绪背后,隐藏着童年或者成年后的未处理的创伤。我相信一段安全健康的治疗关系,会帮助你重建对自己和他人的信任,找到生活的掌控感,从不良情绪中解脱出来,并发现自己内心的爱和勇气。


我认为心理咨询是一个互相看见的过程。来访者在治疗关系中逐渐发现自己,理解并接纳自己,也因此得到了疗愈。对我来说,跟来访建立的治疗关系也会滋养我的内心。我会珍视每一次沟通和聆听的机会,希望我的咨询能构建一个真诚和安全的环境,让痛苦不再是窒息的,而内心的力量得以被发现。
