What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. Hey, communities of color! Are you tired of being ignored and underserved by the mental health industry? Do you need a provider that understands your cultural experience and how to honor your life experiences and presenting concerns? Then consider me, Dr. Cal!

What should we know about your experiences and background?

It's time to connect with a true trailblazer in the field Dr. Cal Spinks, a Counselor Educator who is dedicated to training professional therapists to provide culturally affirming mental health services to underserved populations and provide culturally affirming services to his clients. His story is a testament to the power of overcoming adversity. He was a wounded healer who has been through it all, including emotional, physical, and sexual abuse/neglect. But he didn't let that hold him back. Instead, he used his experiences to become a powerful advocate for education, mental health, and spiritual growth. His journey to become a leader in the mental health field was not an easy one. He grew up in the inner city projects with limited resources, struggling with an anxiety disorder, body image issues, sexual orientation/addiction issues, drug & alcohol misuse, and low self-worth. But he didn't let that stop him. He focused on his own mental health and wellness and went on to obtain not only a Bachelor's in Sociology and a master s degree in counseling, but also a Doctorate in Counselor Education. As an LPC who has a Doctorate in Counselor Education, his experience and education will support your growth process. His approach to mental health is rooted in his own experiences, and he understands that healing is not a one-size-fits-all process. He knows that communities of color have unique cultural and historical experiences that impact our mental health and wellness, and he tailors his approach to meet those needs. Through his work as a counselor educator, Dr. Cal is empowering the next generation of mental health professionals to provide culturally affirming care. He believes that everyone deserves access to high-quality mental health services, and he's working to make that a reality. Dr. Cal's story is a powerful reminder that with hard work, perseverance, and a strong support system, anything is possible. He's here to help you tap into your own strength and resilience and to provide the guidance and support you need to achieve your goals. So, if you're ready to take your mental health and wellness to the next level, connect with Dr. Cal Spinks today. He's the mentor, advocate, and practitioner you've been searching for.
