Janeffer Del Valle
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and am bilingual in English and Spanish. I use cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma recovery empowerment model (TREM), seeking safety, motivational interviewing, and dialectical behavioral therapy. I have experience working with individuals who have experienced trauma, including sexual assault, and I help clients who have difficulty with substance abuse, anger management, stress management, and emotion regulation.
Life sometimes takes us down a path that can be difficult, uneasy, and quite painful to deal with. Working together, we will create a safe, comfortable environment to help you walk down that path with hope that things will get better. I have vast experience working with people enduring addiction, trauma, legal difficulties, and severe mental illness. I’ve worked in substance abuse rehab programs, outpatient therapeutic services, and inpatient psychiatric settings. This has enabled me to understand the wide array of difficulties people experience through their struggles with mental illness. I am trained in EMDR for use with substance use, anxiety and trauma disorders. I am also currently undergoing extensive training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy for use with change-of-life issues that cause increased stress and anxiety.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been with CMHA for the past seven years. My training includes, M-TREM (Men’s Trauma Recovery Empowerment Model,) Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Seeking Safety. For the past 2.5 years I have been working clinically with patients who have legal involvement in CMHA Forensics Program and have experience working in the local court system. By creating a non-judgmental, strength-based and empowering therapeutic relationship, I help my clients make the healthy changes that are important to them in their lives.
