(Play Therapy, ADHD, Autism, Individuals, Families)
Hello, my name is Carl Tierney. I am a Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern and utilize both a client-centered and hope focused approach in counseling. I am a graduate of Liberty University with a Master of Arts in Professional Counseling. Also I am a graduate of Louisiana State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Speech Communication. I have utilized a variety of counseling approaches in order to provide my clients hope for the future, and to work alongside them to help them achieve their counseling goals.
When working with children, I primarily utilize Client-Centered Play Therapy. I completed the “Foundations of Play Therapy Seminar” by Carrie Longest, Ph.D. in 2020 and I completed the “Sand Tray Play Therapy Level 1 Seminar” by Sean P. Jennings, Psy.D. and Aimee Jennings, LMHC in 2021. I also utilize Art Therapy, Bibliotherapy, and Relaxation Therapy when providing counseling for children. When working with adults, I utilize Person-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Solution-Focused Therapy. One of the techniques I utilize is Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) when working with couples. By request I can provided a faith-based approach in counseling sessions.
I have worked with children to address ADHD, depression, anxiety, emotional outbursts, aggression, autism spectrum disorder, adjustment to changes in their living circumstances, and trauma. I have worked with adults to address addictions, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, major neurocognitive disorder, relationship difficulties, and trauma. Providing counseling for couples dealing with intimate partner relationship distress is a passion of mine as well.
