Kanilina Clerge Counseling Services
Areas of Expertise
I specialize in anxiety disorders, childhood trauma, personality disorders, and emotional management and regulation. Working with individuals ages 14 and up, I use a collaborative approach to address life issues. Currently all sessions are face-to-face via a secure telehealth link.
Couples counseling can be beneficial at any stage of a relationship. I specialize in pre-marital counseling, conflict resolution, infidelity, divorce care and blended families. Therapy consists of improving communication, building trust, and working though life changes and challenges, to name a few. Currently all sessions are face-to-face via a secure telehealth link.
I work with parents and children who desire to rebuild a parent-child relationship that has been damaged or estranged. This also includes parents and their adult children. This form of therapy addresses rejection, alienation, and the breakdown of communication one or both parties may be experiencing. Currently all sessions are face-to-face via a secure telehealth link.
Starting counseling with a new therapist can be intimidating, so I want to take the time to tell you about myself and my approach to counseling. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) with extensive experience with working with individuals, couples, and families. I take a collaborative role to counseling and individualize treatment to fit your unique needs. Below are some areas of expertise:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT)
Gottman Method Couples Therapy
Being trained in a variety of therapy methods means I can take an eclectic approach to treatment and understand your mental health journey is unique to you and treatment should be tailored to meet those needs.
I also take a holistic approach to counseling. I believe that there can be various factors capable of influencing our emotions and behaviors. These influences can be environmental, lifestyle, spiritual, economical, etc. By seeing things holistically, I believe that we will be able to reach long term resolutions as opposed to only addressing situational challenges.
