Compos Mentis: Of sound mind.
Greetings all, my name is Tana. More about me later, but 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. My intentions are to obtain my LPC and practice in a mental health setting. I have worked at a mental health agency, in different capacities, for nearly four years now.
I love my agency setting, but 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.
Control your thoughts and have control over your life… that simple, right?
Follow me as I share stories of my personal journey as well as talk about the field of mental health. I hope through this process we can all find our version of a sound mind.
