Professional statement

Donna P. Xu, M.S., LMFTA, is a marriage and family therapist in Plano, TX. She specializes in grief and loss, relationship issues, and anxiety. She works with adults 18 and up.

Donna’s practice, Serenity Counseling B/CS is a hybrid model that utilizes Telehealth and in-person sessions. Postmodern therapists, like Donna, take a collaborative approach in therapy, where they aid the client in exercising self agency rather than a more traditional authoritative or directive approach to therapy. Change comes through collaborative dialogue.

Donna holds a masters in science in psychology with the specialty of marriage, individual, and family therapy. Her mission is providing the best therapeutic experience to each individual, couple, and family that is catered to their needs. She utilizes integrative models of therapy as doing so will create a customized treatment plan for each client. Coming from a bicultural background and also having lived abroad, Donna feels that she is able to understand some of the common challenges that come with assimilation and acculturation from both domestic and foreign perspectives.


Message to clients

Lo que quiero que mis clientes sepan es que no importa nuestro origen étnico porque como seres humanos compartimos los mismos sentimientos.

My clients and I have and will work on developing skills that empower their self-agency towards recovery.

I welcome people from all backgrounds and cultures.

Oftentimes we come to a place in our lives where we feel like there is no door, no way out, and we're out of options. Life can make us feel overwhelmed, exhausted, and tired of even trying. In these moments, we need someone who can empathize, give us ideas, and help us find a path to walk on that leads to a solution we need. I cater to people from all over the world and walks of life. Whatever the issue is that affects you, let's go on this journey together.
