Message to clients

Tyler Blackstock, LLPC, CADC

He/Him/His

When in session I often refer to the “team,” which can be my client, a two-partner couple, a polycule, a family unit, or whomever we find to be the best working definition for the word. Though this can be confusing, what I mean to convey is that you and I are working together in a therapeutic experience.

Having experience in two sides of the counseling field thus far, my history includes working in a jail and substance use rehab with addiction struggles, heightened mental health diagnoses, and high-severity felony offenders, as well as alternatively having experience in education and foster settings with Pre-K through 12th grade school-age children and adolescents. This is to say, I work to ensure a judgment-free environment, and the achievement of success for a client as they define it.

I draw from several sources, such as motivational interviewing, person-centered techniques, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) with a particular draw toward affirmation and empowerment as we work to bring you into your ideal sense of self. This being said, we will work to develop a safe and therapeutic environment where we can bring in the viewpoints and intentions of multiple approaches to provide the best service to you as a client.

I can’t wait to be a part of your team!
