Nate Stringer, RMHCI

Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern

Hi, if you are looking for help, support, change, or someone to listen you have come to the right place. If you are wondering what makes for good therapy let me tell you about what I have learned through my experiences. Good therapy consists of a few principles: A healthy therapeutic relationship between counselor and client, understanding that we are much more than the sum of our parts, therefore taking a holistic view examining the impact and interplay between our biological, psychological, social, spiritual, and systemic factors, and lastly understanding that there is more than one way to reach an outcome, so making treatment individualized to the client’s needs.
 

To practice these principles, I take an eclectic approach to therapy. This means that collaboratively the counselor and client will look at the client’s struggles and goals and then determine the appropriate approach to help us reach those goals. I have extensive experience in practicing CBT, Narrative therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Existential Therapy. I have worked with individuals struggling with substance use, anxiety, depression, trauma, personality disorders, grief, and self-esteem issues. Please reach out and I look forward to speaking with you to see if we are a good fit.
