Meet Justice Arledge
LPC Intern, MS, R5417
**CURRENTLY TAKING NEW CLIENTS** Life can be a very difficult road to haul, but nobody said you have to do it alone. In the world, we have doctors, teachers, all kinds of people that help us along the way it only makes sense to have somebody to help you process through difficulties in life. Hello, my name is Justice Arledge I have been working in this field since 2009 I also have my Masters degree in mental health counseling. I have more than 10 years of experience helping people work through the many unpleasantries that we find in our everyday life. I have helped people work through trauma, depression, and PTSD.
I have worked both with adolescents and adults. My goal as a counselor is to put you back in the driver seat get you to a point in your life where you can make decisions and trust yourself. Help you to make and achieve long-term goals and to walk through life proudly and loving who you are.
We all struggle with something, but my goal is to help you find positive voices that can defeat the negative voices.
My Mission Statement is….
We will walk with you as you discover values in your life’s journey.
Seeking help is hard, but it is also one of the best things you can do for your life’s journey and the people that are apart of it. I Think of it this way, if you had a broken leg you would not run a marathon before healing with the help of a doctor. Every day you are running the marathon of your life by trying to get along day to day. You could be struggling with anxiety, depression or any other issues with mental health. Seeking a therapist or counselor for your mental health is no different than seeing a doctor if you had that broken leg.
My Approach to Counselling and Therapy
This is a question that is difficult to answer because there are so many wonderful tools out there. Below are some of the theories that I do lean towards. I consider myself a cognitive behavioral therapist. I use a lot of elements from other theories, One of my favorite techniques is reality testing and exposure therapy.
Trauma & PTSD Counseling
I believe that we all can find stability and balance in life. As your counselor, I will collaborate with you on your journey of making and achieving relevant goals. You will learn coping skills to handle the stresses you have in living life’s journey. I have over eight years of experience working in direct care with both adolescents and adults.
I have experience working with Individuals struggling with learning differences, thoughts of suicide, PTSD, trauma, depression, anxiety, homelessness, and other mental health differences. My goal is to put you in the driver seat and allow you to make the choices that are right for you on your journey of life.
