Professional statement

Taryne M. Mingo, PhD, LPC (MO) received her CACREP-accredited doctorate from The University of Georgia in 2015, and worked as a professional school counselor for six years. In 2017, she decided to pursue counseling licensure in the state of Missouri to further her skills as a counselor educator in the preparation of school counseling and clinical mental health counselors.

Dr. Mingo has a professional background in school counseling, clinical mental health counseling, and promoting self-care practices during life's most challenging transitions. Dr. Mingo has received additional training in expressive arts therapy and mindfulness practice through counseling, so these resources are available in her work as they are facilitative of a client's process.

Though physically-based in Charlotte, NC, Dr. Mingo provides tele-mental health therapy to Missouri-based clients, and hopes to provide tele-mental health counseling to NC and GA clients by the end of this year.

Message to clients

Thank you for choosing Taryne M. Mingo, PHD, LPC for your current counseling needs.

Goals of Counseling: Goals for the counseling relationship can be long-term goals such as improving the quality of your life, learning to live with mindfulness and self-actualization or exploring life transitions. Others may be more immediate goals such as decreasing anxiety and depression symptoms, and/or developing healthy relationships. Whatever the goals for counseling, they will be set by the clients according to what they want to work on in counseling. As your counselor, I may make suggestions on how to reach that goal but you decide where you want to go.

Risks/Benefits of Counseling: Counseling is an intensely personal process which can bring unpleasant memories or emotions to the surface. There are no guarantees that counseling will result in the goals you envision. Progress may happen slowly. Counseling requires a very active effort on your part. In order to be most successful, you will have to work on things we discuss outside of sessions. are many benefits to counseling. Counseling can help you develop coping skills, make behavioral changes, reduce symptoms of mental health disorders, improve the quality of your life, learn to manage anger, learn to live in the present, find resolution for past hurts, seek a more integrated and authentic way of living, and many other advantages.

If you would like additional information, I offer 30-minute consultation sessions ($30) to ask specific questions regarding your needs for counseling.
