Under Clinical Supervision

Mikayla Downs, Licensed Master Social Worker, 111832 is practicing under the supervision of Lisa Delaplace (Texas, LCSW-S, 107293) at Findlay Therapy Services.

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.

In what ways do your life philosophy and treatment philosophy overlap?

I believe that therapy should be accessible for all individuals. It is my goal to provide a space that is completely affirming and financially accessible for clients of any background. I believe that it is important to take a holistic view at a client's circumstances and concerns and then work together to build a therapeutic path that addresses their needs. No matter your background or concern, it would truly be an honor to work with you.

How do you determine therapy goals with clients? What does that process look like?

My approach is trauma-informed, person-centered, and attachment-based where recognizing the unique elements of each individual's experience is a central focus. I am EMDR informed and use many elements of this approach in treatment. I will work with you to identify the origin of your pain, alleviate anxiety and depressive symptoms, and move toward peace. All of this to say — bring your complex emotions and experiences, and we will work through them together in a way that fits you. Nothing is too big or small to bring to therapy, and you deserve a space dedicated to bringing to closer to relief and fulfillment. All are welcome; it is a safe, affirming space.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Facing life’s biggest challenges and questions alone can be overwhelming, but having someone alongside you through that process can make a world of difference. I’m Mikayla, and my goal as your therapist is to create a space that is warm, affirming, and compassionate — a place where you can freely explore your authentic self, dive into the root causes of your concerns, and develop paths toward reaching your goals.
