Under Clinical Supervision

Miss. Tifini Smith, Professional Counselor Associate, NA is practicing under the supervision of Bertrina West Al-Mahdi (Georgia, LPC, LPC010922) at Out of the Box Counseling, Coaching, and Consulting.

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 have your personal experiences influenced your work with your clients?

My personal experiences in life are what drive me to do the work that I do today. Growing up, I lived in a household where mental health matters were hidden to an extent and not really talked about. I witnessed the struggles that happened behind closed doors. Because of how I grew up, it ignited a passion to remove the stigmas surrounding mental health and to raise awareness within family systems, letting them know that it is okay to have a family member experience mental health struggles. It is my life mission to help individuals navigate their mental health concerns, overcoming any barriers present.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

My approach to therapy is very laid back, the pressure is off. I do not believe in therapy being foreign, stressful, or scary. I'm here to help you overcome and achieve without fear.

What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

My heart is in this field, in this career. I hold counseling near and dear to my heart because I know how mental health impacts a person. Seeing my loved one struggle with his own mental health catapulted me into this field and I wouldn't want it any other way. With me, you'll get the best out of me working to get you where you desire to be.
