The Behavioral Health Department welcomed a new member to the staff this month. Monte Blake is a Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC, with 26 years of experience in mental health and social services. Utilizing a cognitive behavioral approach to therapy coupled with an empathic understanding of the psychodynamic influence of early childhood experiences and the complexities of life, Monte has provided therapeutic services to a wide range of populations and people of all races and walks of life. Monte has worked in mental health centers, mental health hospitals and public schools. He has provided therapeutic services in the home and spent ten years providing services to incarcerated men in a medium security prison.
A prevailing philosophy for Monte has been the belief that people are capable of positive change in their life, regardless of their personal struggle, if they are willing to afford themselves an honest self evaluation through reflection, contemplation and examination of their internal dialogue and behavioral choices.
