Hi! My Name is Magan Mangold. I am an LPC Supervisor issued by the state of Texas and I have an M.A. in counseling. I have 10 years of experience working in the mental health realm. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, family conflicts, coping with grief and loss, parenting issues, social behavior, and crisis counseling. I consider myself a Christian and can provide a Biblical backing to my counseling approach. I have previously worked in the inpatient psychiatric setting in the adolescent unit, crisis intervention, and in family based services.
I am experienced in many counseling techniques and find myself to have an open minded compassionate approach. My counseling style and approach is Holistic/Integrative although I tend to lean towards a solution focused direction. The first few sessions start out with a person-centered therapy approach. It is important to establish a trusting and therapeutic relationship by form of congruence, unconditional positive regard, and empathy in the beginning. Sometimes a person-centered approach leads the client to discover the answers for themselves. However, the information collected in the first few sessions may lead to a better suited theory as sessions continue. I feel that issues like depression or anxiety can be helped with cognitive behavioral therapy. I have a strong trauma informed care background and utilize the approach from Trust Based Relational Intervention when working with individuals with past trauma history and with children from hard places. My counseling style and approach really depends on the client and what best fits the situation. Person-centered therapy, CBT, and trauma informed care have been my main approach and style.
I look forward to working with you and helping you to meet your personal goals or just be a sounding board as you walk through day to day life.
