Yu-Wen Wang


Supervised by Alice Payne, LPC-S, RPT-S

I am Yu-Wen Wang and everyone call me Wen. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Intern supervised by Alice Payne, LPC-S, RPT-S. I am a native of Taiwan, started my journey in Texas in 2017, with the ability to conduct therapy fluently in Mandarin, Taiwanese, and English. I have a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a Graduate Certificate of Play Therapy from Sam Houston State University. I am currently working with children towards achieving my Registered Play Therapist (RPT) credential.

I have extensive experience working with traumatized children and adolescents, special needs children, adults suffered from domestic violence and sexual assault. My focus is on working with children who are struggling with their lives by using play therapy. I firmly believe that building relationships is the main priority in counseling relationships. My counseling practice will be guided by Person-Centered Therapy because I believe that a client’s self-awareness is key to developing self-direction and independence. My approach will provide you with methods to solve problems utilizing your own strengths. Additionally, I may use other approaches such as Trauma-Focused Cognitive Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness practice, and expressive arts to help facilitate your progress in counseling.

It is hard to take the first step to make changes, I am glad that you make your first step here to read my profile. Seeing a therapist can be vulnerable, my goal is to provide a safe, warm, and non-judgmental place for you and your children. I look forward to starting a new journey with you together!
