MENTAL HEALTH CLINICIAN
Bernita Oakes, Intern Counselor | (703) 688-2432 | firstname.lastname@example.org
Reaching out for help when experiencing anxiety and/or depression can be uncomfortable and even scary, but it is especially brave. I can offer open-mindedness, compassion, and validation to help you navigate through life’s uncertainties and challenges. I encourage you to openly express your thoughts and feelings to help you cultivate a kinder relationship with yourself, explore interpersonal challenges, and set positive personal goals to better your mental health and overall well-being.
Together we can find a deeper understanding of your feelings, thoughts, and behaviors and their patterns. We can utilize the tools you already have while introducing additional techniques to manage anxiety, sadness, and stress. A person-centered approach that reflects empathy, compassion and nonjudgment is at the core of our sessions together. Additional approaches such as acceptance and commitment therapy, CBT, and mindfulness are tailored to each client’s unique experience. I would be honored to guide you in your healing process.
My passions are psychology, design, and dogs. I have a bachelor’s in Psychology from Virginia Tech and a bachelor’s in Interior Design from Marymount University. I’m currently working towards my Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from University of the Cumberlands.
