Lucinda Rodriguez, MA, LMHCA
I have worked the past 17 years in various mental health settings. Working with the chronic mentally ill, addicts, and suicidal clients, I have learned the importance of listening with compassion, and communicating effectively to reassure the individual is being heard.
I’ve enjoyed working in community based mental health, which helped me develop the therapeutic skills necessary for the treatment of clients in crisis. It also allowed me to connect and interact with a large, diverse population.
My approach to counseling is mostly Person Centered with some CBT, but I believe compassion is the most important attribute. I also recognize my work with clients is collaborative, with a shared vision of achieving their therapeutic goals. I like working with adults and families that struggle with anxiety, depression, major traumas, and daily life stressors.
I grew up in Eastern Washington, but now call the Seattle area home. I have a Bachelors degree in Social Services from Central Washington University and a Masters of Arts in Counseling Psychology from City University of Seattle.
