Lennie Wong, LPC

Lennie grew up in Alabama where she attended Auburn University and received her Bachelor of Science in Health Promotion. After deciding to pursue a career in counseling, she moved half way across the country to Dallas to achieve this goal. She received her Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary in 2014, and has been working with people of varying backgrounds, ages, and cultures ever since.

Lennie believes that people will get the most out of life when they are functioning well in the five areas of wellness: physical, emotional, interpersonal, spiritual, and financial. She believes that each area of wellness affects the others to some degree. In other words, she believes in a holistic approach to counseling.

For the past three years, Lennie has worked with teenagers and adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, trauma, borderline personality disorder, self-harm, and interpersonal problems. Lennie uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help her clients identify negative automatic thoughts, faulty expectations, and unhealthy relationship patterns. She believes that people are most able to heal when they are in an environment they feel is safe, with a therapist who understands what they are going through, and is willing to meet them where they are. Lennie is currently working towards her certification in Trauma Model Therapy from the Ross Institute.
