Tynea Drakeford, MFT-C
Tynea is a Marriage and Family Therapist Candidate (MFT-C), pursuing her (LMFT), and aspires to support clients through many avenues including: group facilitation, couple and family sessions and individual therapy. Tynea has experience supporting clients working through trauma, anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, postpartum depression, grief, etc. She has experience as a Co-Occurring counselor and supported clients that suffered from both substance use disorders and a mental health disorder simultaneously.
Tynea believes that everyone should feel support when they express challenging and traumatic experiences; regardless what capacity of therapy they are receiving whether it be (group, individual, family or couple therapy). Her group therapy curriculum included content about coping skills, generational trauma, self-care/self-worth, processing emotions, and anger management.
Tynea is a huge advocate for the use of journaling questions and assigning homework; which she will check to see if it’s completed and if not, she will help you finish it. She treats all clients with compassionate understanding and the unconditional positive regard that they deserve. Tynea uses a client centered approach with her clients. This approach demonstrates complete support, empathy, and acceptance for all people. As well as, listening without judgement, encouraging and aiding the client as they explore underlying issues.
Tynea does not believe in a one-size-fits all approach, but rather incorporates a toolbox filled with a wealth of knowledge. This toolbox includes many different psycho-social interventions, methods and treatments including, but not limited to: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing (M.I.), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and more.
She wants you to know that therapy is a process, and there is no set time frame for anyone because everyone heals differently. Tynea does not assume, but rather she dives deep to ensure every client's underlying issues are addressed.
