Delois Blackmon, MS is a Mental Health Clinician who believes in the power and importance of unique individuality. Graduating from Chestnut Hill College, she received her Master of Science in Clinical and Counseling Psychology with a concentration in Diverse and Underserved Communities. Throughout her time in the field she has worked with clients ranging from adolescents to older adults, and clients belonging to minority and underserved populations. Delois has experience utilizing trauma informed and client centered approaches for her individual clients, as well as play therapy, art therapy, mindfulness and sensory exercises, feelings identification/expression, cognitive techniques, verbal processing, positive reinforcement, group therapy, and family therapy.
Delois believes in the utilization of the Sociocultural Theory of Cognitive Development to observe how cultural backgrounds (collectivistic, individualistic, etc.) may influence an individual on how they identify, how they view themselves, how they perceive others to view them, and how they cope or respond to life’s challenges and changes.
In her therapeutic methods, Delois focuses on creating a safe space for clients to discuss emotions and experiences, and form an understanding of therapeutic relationships to foster trust and enable the application of positive change to everyday lifestyles.
