Sheng Lee Yang

MSW, LCSW

Not Accepting New Clients

I am a bilingual Hmong and English therapist with experience in co-occurring diagnoses. I enjoy working with people from all ethnicity, age groups and walks of life. My counseling style is warm, interactive, and compassionate. My therapy style is a combination of cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psycho-dynamic and rational-emotive techniques. I tailor dialog and treatment plans to meet my client's unique needs.

I work with a wide range of concerns including cultural specific needs, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, grief, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD and help people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

MSW, LCSW

Limited Availability

I currently work with individuals ages 5+ and couples. In therapy, I focus on each individual person’s strengths, needs and preferences. No two people are the same; I enjoy being creative in tailoring my approach to help clients meet their goals. I enjoy using various treatment techniques; most commonly you will find me using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), person-centered, and solution focused approaches. I am trained in Brainspotting, a treatment modality effective in treating trauma, and am currently pursuing national certification in Trauma Focused – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). I have received additional specialized training in the treatment of substance use disorders and enjoy treating dual diagnosis disorders.

I enjoy working with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, trauma, substance abuse, grief, relationship issues, anger management, immigration/cultural adjustment, pregnancy/prenatal and postpartum concerns, and stress. I have 10 years of experience in non-profit leadership, behavioral health therapy, and case management for various populations.

I work with clients of all ages and backgrounds. My counseling approach includes strengths-based and person-in-environment while applying cognitive-behavioral therapy. I believe that therapy is centered in rewriting narratives, empowerment and advocacy.

My education is rooted in Psychology, Spanish and Social Work. I have broad cultural experiences having lived in 24 countries and studied in South Africa and Spain. My professional experiences include refugee resettlement, refugee family reunification, psychotherapy, AODA treatment, domestic abuse and child bereavement in a variety of settings such as community centers, bereaved children camps and international rape crises centers.

I am a trained LGBTQ+ safe ally and passionately advocate for this community.

I work with clients 4 and older. My therapy approach is taken from a variety of therapeutic modalities as no two clients have the same needs. I use cognitive behavioral techniques. My therapy style is informal  and strive to ensure the client feels comfortable.

I earned my Bachelor’s in Social Work from the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point and my Master in Social Work from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh.

In my free time, you can find me spending time with my family and watching my children play sports. I love creative projects, gardening, baking, and enjoy snuggling and playing with my dogs.

I completed my undergraduate studies at UW - Madison, where I double majored in Sociology and Gender & Women’s Studies.  Currently, I am in my final year at UWGB, pursuing a Masters of Social Work degree, with a focus in clinical and mental/behavioral health services.  I have experience with crisis intervention phone counseling and am passionate and focused on my career working with individuals who have mental/behavioral health issues. I have volunteered and worked with various organizations that serve underrepresented populations.  Additionally, I have interests in community advocacy, civil engagement, and diversity and inclusion work.

I was born and raised in Wausau, WI and come from a family of seven.  On my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my nieces and nephews, playing volleyball, and exploring national parks.  I love to hike and immerse myself in nature.
