Getting to Know Tina

Tina was born in Taiwan and moved to Texas with her family at a young age. Tina received her Bachelor of Science in Psychology from The University of Texas at Austin and her master’s in Counseling and Development from Texas Woman’s University. A desire to understand intrapersonal and interpersonal relationships, family dynamics, and human development led Tina to take a graduate course in Child and Family Therapy at the University of Texas at Austin. It was there where Tina understood the importance of how development and experiences impact the individual across their lifespan and shape the way one interacts with themselves and the world.

Style & Approach

Tina is a Registered Play Therapist as well as EMDR and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior(TF-CBT) trained. She practices an integrative approach when it comes to counseling. Tina draws from different therapeutic modalities based on attachment and neuroscience tailored to meet each client’s unique needs and works with them in a collaborative fashion to help them access their own inner strength and wisdom. She believes the most important component of the counseling process is the therapeutic relationship.

“Being able to feel safe with other people is probably the single most important aspect of mental health; safe connections are fundamental to meaningful and satisfying lives.”

Tina believes that different experiences can impact the way the brain and nervous system function and process information.

“After trauma the world is experienced with a different nervous system. The survivor’s energy now becomes focused on suppressing inner chaos, at the expense of spontaneous involvement in their lives. These attempts to maintain control over unbearable physiological reactions can result in a whole range of symptoms.”

Trauma can be defined as anything that overwhelms your body, mind,and brain’s ability to cope. Therefore, Tina believes that engaging the person as an entire system from cognitive, emotional, physiological, somatic, and relational is imperative. Sometimes life depletes us faster than we can replenish. These overwhelming negative emotions, along with stress, can be debilitating. Each person’s journey is unique. Tina’s focus is always on the individual, doing what works best for the individual, enhancing their understanding of self, and strengthening their ability to deal more effectively with challenges. Tina is dedicated to helping her clients find their own path and honoring their journey towards healing.
