Lisset Jimenez, Masters Intern
Lisset Jimenez, Intern, Inner Courage Counseling
I am currently a master’s level intern and will be graduating with a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lewis University in May 2022. Before this, I studied Psychology and Social Work at Elmhurst University. I have worked in an inpatient psychiatric hospital, as well as a mental health crisis hotline. My education and work experience has allowed me to work with a wide range of populations, concerns, and ages. I am very excited to be in this new role where I can develop longer relationships with clients so that we can collaborate together and see true growth and improvement.
My primary goal is to provide a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment in which clients are able to discuss their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, without fear. I understand how frightening and uncomfortable it can be to talk to a stranger about personal issues, and this is why I prioritize creating a positive collaborative relationship together first.
I believe there is no “one size fits all” approach in counseling. Instead, I incorporate concepts and interventions from a variety of therapeutic approaches including Person Centered Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), and more. I believe each client deserves a tailored approach that may vary from session to session, depending on the client’s needs.
My primary clinical interests include anxiety, depression, relationship issues, life transitions, and trauma. I am also a proud supporter of the LGBTQ+ community and provide affirming and culturally sensitive counseling.
