Chau Nguyen, LMSW

Chau Nguyen, LMSW


Chau is a Licensed Master Social Worker with more than a decade of experience advocating for  women, children and families of trauma and abuse. A 2010 graduate of the University of  Houston Graduate College of Social Work, Chau believes you are the expert of your own story,  and she is passionately committed to making your therapeutic journey respectful, authentic  and safe.

Chau’s own healing journey from trauma began with her immediate family, when her parents  escaped Vietnam and the Vietnam War with her and her three older siblings. Immigrating from  half a world away, Chau’s family would eventually make their way to Texas and call Houston,  home. Chau’s experience as a refugee immigrant shaped her upbringing. She was an empathic  child, was curious about a world that sometimes felt cruel, and became a voracious reader at a  young age. That thirst for knowledge and connection served her well, when she graduated  from college and pursued a career as a television reporter and anchor, working in Guam,  Saipan, Atlanta and eventually returning to Houston, where she would “hang up her TV News  hat” to pursue her lifeline passion to serve and help others. 

While in graduate school, she trained at both Baylor College Transition Medicine Clinic where  she counseled chronically ill young adults, and at IntraCare Behavioral Health, a non-profit,  private psychiatric hospital. Her post-graduate work in both non-profit and private practices in  the Houston area involved counseling individuals, families, children and teens.  

Chau’s counseling style is interactive and empathic. She is a “meet you where you are, as you  are” strengths-based psychotherapist, and her acute listening skills honed as a journalist is key  to every successful therapeutic relationship she enters. She strongly believes every client  should feel heard as they take that first and courageous step towards living a more fulfilling,  joyful life. 

She has a keen interest counseling women, children, teens and families. When she is not seeing  clients at JEM Wellness and Counseling, you’ll find Chau advocating for women and children,  speaking on a wide range of subjects including, trauma, abuse, and political and social justice  issues. She is a contributing op-ed writer on RA News and is a frequent panelist on the popular  FOX26 News weekly TV Show, “What’s Your Point.”  

Chau is the mother of two young daughters and a Shih Tzu Yorkie mix, a Shorkie, named  Peanut.

Before coming to the University of Houston for his master’s degree, he worked at a crisis stabilization hospital, primarily helping adults with suicidal ideation or severe alcohol and drug dependencies. Upon coming to the University of Houston, he was awarded the GLOBE fellowship, which provided specialized case studies, seminars, and courses designed to improve cultural and community-based competencies for future mental health practitioners. Concurrently with the fellowship, he interned at the Baylor College of Medicine’s Adult Outpatient Psychiatry Clinic, providing individual and group therapy to a wide array of patient symptoms and life challenges (e.g., major depression, anxiety, complicated bereavement, binge eating disorder, and ADHD).
