All About Me

Greetings all, my name is Tana. I am the creator and curator of the Compos Mentis Counseling page. I am a graduate student just shy of completing my Masters in Counseling. I’m addition to my school work, I work full time at a community mental health agency and I am a big on family life. I live in Texas so if you follow my blog, you will see some y’all’s, Bless Your Heart, and a lot of referencing sweet tea

My career intentions are to obtain my LPC and practice in a mental health setting. Having worked at a mental health agency, in different capacities, for nearly four years now, I love my agency setting. However, I am open to where my journey takes me in my counseling work. 

Compos Mentis comes from interpretation of my theoretical background, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). If CBT had to be summarized to its most important component, I would argue learning to control one’s thoughts (which in turn controls their feelings and behaviors) is the most vital piece. 

Compos Mentis (see Origin Post) loosely translates to of sound mind or master of the mind. It is this idea that I bring to my webpage.
