Ms Tina Saunders (Pompano Beach, United States) Provider
I have been in this field more than 20 years, both in inpatient and outpatient settings. My therapeutic orientation tends to focus a lot on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy (or Insight-Oriented Therapy), Integrative and Eclectic Therapy, as well as Faith-Based Therapy (when appropriate). Having raised five children as a single parent while working full time, as well as completing my education in my later years, I feel that I am able to help those that are inundated with emotional turmoil.
I believe that every human being is unique and the human entity is made up of four different components: physical, mental, spiritual and emotional. They all are significantly and intimately connected. There are provisions made for every individual to reach and maintain their optimal level in each of these areas. Medical professionals bring their skill and knowledge to help heal one’s physical ailments; teachers bring their expertise to increase one’s intellect; spiritual leaders (i.e. pastors, priests, etc.) bring their knowledge about spirituality; whereas, professional counselors help bring insight to one’s emotional pain and behaviors which are hurting them. Healing is a multidimensional process facilitated by integrating the physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional components of a person’s being. Each component affects one another in some way.
