BROOKE LANGE, CMHC
“Healing begins when a safe space is created and your concerns are validated. I believe this is accomplished by building trust and rapport in a client-centered environment. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to your well-being. As a result, I adapt to the unique challenges presented to find the best treatment approach which will foster growth and satisfaction in your life.”
“Therapy should be a collaborative process whereby strengths are identified and you feel capable to tackle the issues at hand. I use a creative, strengths-based approach to identify areas that have created maladaptive hurdles in your life, and identifying healthy solutions. Techniques I use to enhance the therapeutic environment include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and mindfulness techniques.”
“I have experience working with children, adolescents, young adults, adults, couples, and families. Areas of expertise include: substance abuse/addiction, self-harm, depression, anxiety, life adjustment/transition, relationship/family conflict, grief and loss, trauma, and parenting.”
“I love what I do and am deeply honored every day by the courage it takes to confront life’s challenges, and the satisfaction that comes when you find restorative solutions.”
My professional career began at Cornerstone Counseling Center, which is one arm of the local chapter of Volunteers of America. I completed my internship, and accepted a position on the Youth Treatment Services team, which provided the adolescent population with therapists who advocated for clients and addressed substance use issues, and mental health challenges.
While at Cornerstone Counseling Center, my team designed, and implemented the first young-adult treatment program in the state of Utah, focusing on the unique needs of those aged 18-24. I became the Program Manager of the Youth Treatment Services Team at which time we began providing group therapy for incarcerated youth, and built an on-site therapy program to serve the children living at the YWCA.
My experience with addiction and mental health issues provided an opportunity to work in a residential treatment setting where I provided individual, couples, and family sessions, in addition to facilitating psychotherapy CBT group process sessions. Utilization reviews was a necessary part of the equation to access the funding needed to cover the cost of treatment.
I joined Red Willow Counseling and Recovery to work more closely with individuals, and their families in a setting that is safe and professional. I look forward to walking your journey with you in a collaborative, trusted, creative way.
