Under Clinical Supervision

Mr. Jack Arbuckle, Licensed Professional Counselor Associate, 92817 is practicing under the supervision of Amy Salinas (Texas, LPC, 75347) at Lifeologie Counseling.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I operate primarily from an Adlerian approach to counseling, incorporating techniques from play therapy and evidence-based practices such as CBT and Gestalt therapy as fitting for my clients' needs. I recognize that all this therapy jargon can be confusing to sift through, so here's the key takeaways you should know: (1) I believe that therapy works best as an equal partnership between you and I, where you are seen as the expert on your own experiences and needs; (2) I believe in the importance of encouragement and support within the therapeutic space; and (3) I believe that our struggles tend to arise from our attempts to remedy unmet needs in our lives—needs such as connection, capability, or the courage to face what life throws our way. My work focuses on identifying this underlying need and working together to determine more effective ways of addressing that area of your life.

What does success look like in therapy? How will a client know that they are making progress?

Lately, I've been hooked on a show called Ted Lasso (a show which I would wholeheartedly recommend to just about anyone). In that show, there's a quote that has been continuously ringing in my mind ever since I heard it: "Human beings are never gonna be perfect. The best we can do is to keep asking for help and accepting it when you can. And if you keep on doing that, you'll always be moving towards better." The truth is, mental health is complicated. We don't always have concrete, visible signs of change or glowing signs indicating that things are suddenly better. What we have instead is a process of continued and gradual growth—growth which can sometimes be easier for others to notice than ourselves. Are you putting in the work to improve yourself? Are you feeling a little bit lost than you did before, even if there's still work to do? Are you taking time to recognize your victories and strengths, even while we take accountability for our errors? If the answer to these questions is yes, then you ARE making progress. The rest, we'll tackle as a team.

If you could pick one movie or book that influenced your approach to therapy, what would it be and why?

There are a LOT of movies and books that have influenced my approach, but the one that started it all was Good Will Hunting. Certainly, no movie is going to be a perfect representation of therapy—we have therapy for that. Even so, this movie hit what I consider to be the core foundation of counseling in a way that very few manage to do: the warmth, the unconditional acceptance of the client, and the importance of trust in the therapeutic relationship. So many of us need help in our lives, but it can be difficult to find places or people where we feel seen, understood, and accepted. In my practice, trust and acceptance are the core foundations. Come as you are, and we'll figure out how to navigate your struggles together.

Education

University of Arkansas, Master of Science in Counseling, Counseling, 2023

My degree program featured a concentration in Clinical Mental Health. Along the way, I participated in various courses surrounding play therapy techniques, as well as marriage and family therapy counseling. I served as a volunteer at a play therapy conference through the university and was an active member of our Honor Society for Counseling, known as Chi Sigma Iota. I then received a stipend through the Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training (BHWET) Program for Professionals, receiving additional training in current evidence-based practices. I finished my program by serving with Methodist Family Health as a clinical intern, working with children and adolescents to address mental health issues in both clinic- and school-based settings.

Kennesaw State University, Bachelor of Science, Psychology, 2020

Alongside coursework in psychological science, I studied a variety of coursework that ha served me well in my practice, including courses in sociology, human development and family systems, philosophy, statistics, neuroscience, and biology. I also served as both a teaching assistant and research assistant. The former of these included helping teach our university's Research Methods course. As a research assistant, I served in the projects of two professors, administering and analyzing data from both an EEG and eye-tracking telemetry. I then served as the President of the Psychology Club and an active member of the Undergraduate Research Club, giving four presentations at various conferences nation-wide. Finally, I spent time volunteering at a local hospice and palliative care center for the final years of my undergraduate degree.

Work History

I am a LPC Associate in the state of Texas supervised by Amy Salinas, LPC-S & Meagan Jackson, LPC-S, RPT-S. I currently serve as the Lead Child and Adolescent Counselor of Lifeologie's Allen location, having worked alongside my peers to develop a brand new play space for our younger clients. Prior to working with Lifeologie, I served with Methodist Family Health as a clinical intern, working with children and teens across a variety of settings including our own clinic and various daycares and grade schools in the surrounding area. My clients struggle with a variety of obstacles in their lives, but I have worked most consistently with issues of anxiety, depression, and navigating the struggles that come with neurodivergences such as ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder.
