Rui Dolen is a licensed marriage and family therapist who specializes in the treatment of trauma, developmental trauma, and reactions to other stressful events in children and adults. Rui is a somatic therapist combining Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), as well as parts work (ego states). Rui's approach is a holistic (mind-body-spirit), non-violent, mindfulness-based, and attachment-based somatic approach, as well as based on Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) which is also the foundation of Rui's parenting consultation and coaching practice.
Rui was born and raised in Beijing, China. With her eastern background, she is connected to mindfulness-based practice and life philosophies, personally and professionally. Growing up, Rui has seen her own family and the society in China suffering from different forms of trauma including generational trauma.
Rui is a mother to a 28-weeker preemie baby who had special needs, so she understands the emotional up-and-downs of being a parent. She utilized her professional knowledge and applied trauma-informed care to her baby while she was undergoing multiple surgeries. But the key mental element that really got her through was the practice of staying present.
