Elta Jackson-Henry, MSW
Since High School I was considered a “Natural Helper” and assisted my peers with life stressors, adjustments, and life transitions. My life’s work has been to assist others with difficult circumstances through personal life experience and intuition. Having studied through a robust program in Walla Walla University’s undergrad BSW and graduate MSW program I have been able to put into practice what came naturally.
My practice focus for the first 15 years was primarily with children and their families in direct outpatient therapy and for the last 16 with employees and their families as an Employee Assistance Specialist. I have a desire to help all ages experience a positive quality of life and mental wellness, honing in on the coping strategies, strengths and amazing qualities they already possess to conquer the challenges that present themselves when least expected or over time as an accumulation of normal or abnormal life stressors.
Reminding individuals about the power of gratitude to foster hope, a sense of peace and a future is paramount to my method of practice. I have also found that incorporating a faith perspective is powerful as well as adhering to a person-centered, strength-based model of practice, meeting clients where they are, and engaging in motivational interviewing and solution-focused consultation.
Building trust and rapport in order to foster change and a feeling of safety and confidence is very important to realize any lasting, meaningful change. It would be my honor to help you and yours today.
