Nice to meet you! My name is Logan Saley and I am currently getting my Masters of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Marriage and Family Therapy from University of Houston-Victoria. I received my Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Texas A&M University (Gig em!) Most recently, I have spent my time as an RBT implementing behavior modification therapy (ABA) for children and teens on the spectrum. I am excited to be shifting into the counseling role.
While my background is in behaviorism, I take a Systems approach to counseling. This means that I will explore the social systems an individual person is a apart of and their influence on thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. This can include difficulties in attachment, communication, boundaries, or adaptation. In counseling, we might discuss your family including generational patterns, friends, or coworkers. I might ask you to consider bringing someone important from your systems to the session and include them in the work. Even though I take a systems approach to facilitate change, I am committed to being eclectic in my implementation of technique. This means I will utilize techniques from a range of modalities that suit you, your perspective, and your needs.
I am passionate about relational health particularly the health and functioning of a family unit. For families with special needs or dysregulated kids, parental stress can become compounded and influence the dynamic of the entire family. In therapy, the focus is on better communication, healthier attachment, and clearer boundaries. For my child clients, I will take a non-directive approach to play therapy. Children are incredibly perceptive and can use play to express their needs and process their environments. I love working with children and empowering families to reach their fullest potential.
