“Joanna” Hsin-Chun Wu, MA, LPC, RPT, CCTP-II

Telehealth Only

“Joanna” Hsin-Chun is a Licensed Professional Counselor, Registered Play Therapist™, EMDR therapist, Level-II Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, and Teaching Fellow at Harvard University Graduate School of Education.  She serves TX residents with life transition issues, clinical mental health struggles, and developmental/attachment traumas via telehealth.

Born and raised in Taiwan, Joanna respects the uniqueness of individuals from different cultural backgrounds and cares for every client sincerely from her heart.  Every individual, regardless of age, was once a child.  Through numerous interactions with people and the environment around us, we establish our internal belief systems embedded in the unique familial/social context, therefore,  there is no “one size fits all” approach to treatment.  Joanna strives to provide a secure therapeutic relationship as a vehicle for healing and growth since relational wounds also heal through relationships.  She meets clients’ needs based on their developmental age and implements evidence-based therapeutic modalities and cutting-edge neuroscience findings.  She provides age-appropriate trauma-informed care by using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), EMDR therapy, Internal Family Systems (IFS), play therapy, and other interventions to enhance psychosomatic connections.


Therapeutic Specialties:

  • Trauma-informed therapy for adults/young professionals with complex traumas, attachment traumas, foster/adoption issues, and PTSD.
  • Anxiety, depression, eating disorders, faith struggles, relational issues, stress management, pre/postpartum struggles, and parenting issues.
  • Play therapy for children aged 3-12. (Due to her recent move to Boston, she no longer sees child clients but continues to provide parent consultations via telehealth.)
