I am Dr. Paula Cooks; I am a Christian that believes in the holistic approach to managing the mental health needs of my clients. I use humanistic and existential therapeutic modalities. I believe that the individual, couple, or family has the unconscious resolution to aid in returning to homeostasis. My focus is on managing and improving the mental health status of individuals, families, and couples seeking relief from environmental, situational, and life stressors.
The therapeutical framework that is used is, first and foremost, person-centered, solution-focused, and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). Trauma-focused, ABC Model, DBT, and REBT are also incorporated into resolving complex issues revolving around mental health instability.
The therapeutic environment consists of a client lead approach while utilizing therapeutic interventions and modalities that are unique to the client's culture and competence level.
