Under Clinical Supervision

Messina Delgado, Licensed Professional Counselor Associate, 93296 is practicing under the supervision of Stamatis Bogdanos (Texas, LPC-S, 64556) at Robin Leah 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 are your biggest strengths as a therapist?

All of the work will be done at your pace, and with your specific needs in mind. I am an affirming counselor, and believe counseling should be for everyone. I understand the systemic pressure that can have you trying to “get it right!” A benefit to you may be my stance on de-stigmatizing mental health by avoiding rigid diagnoses and accepting that there is not one way to thrive in this world.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

Our time together will be spent figuring the aspects- emotional, intellectual, sensory-based, and behavioral- of life out through your own story. Growing into learning how to listen to yourself so you can trust what it is you know, and what it is you need will be at the core of each session. The tools I use are done with cultural considerations, and by acknowledging the extra burdens social constructs and systemic environments put on you. I start with listening and being a witness to your story. With your consent, I use parts work to assist you in taking an objective stance in your story, and in offering yourself compassion. Continuing with you practicing somatic experiencing to help you understand how your body has responded to your narrative. Pairing that with mindfulness to help you regulate these sensations. Sometimes things may pop up that feel harder to regulate/process and it is here where we can begin to use other tools to get you on the other side of what it is you are going through. I am also trained in EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing) with children, teens, adults of both the neurodiverse (Autism, ADHD, etc.) and neurotypical populations. With your consent we can use it to overcome these larger internal hurdles or trauma(s) also known as PTSD or C-PTSD. You may prefer to take this route initially- if so I can oblige.

What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

I am a human first, and this profession allows me to extend that same vibe to people. Having said that, I understand that even though I see myself this way, the outside world sees me in many other ways, that I have had to learn how to navigate around with self-compassion and support for the truths that I did not ask to carry. Being a therapist means I get to validate others in their same version of this experience, and be there when they take the reins in their truth.
