Mental Health Counseling at TURN

After the merger with Salt Lake Advocacy and Community Training in July of 2011, Cynthia Proctor joined our staff as a licensed professional counselor. Cynthia provides counseling for individuals receiving Medicaid who have OPTUM or Davis Behavioral Health listed under mental health services, people authorized for therapy through Vocational Rehabilitation, and people who have private insurance through United Behavioral Health. She also sees people who want to pay privately for therapy. She sees people with and without developmental disabilities or acquired brain injuries and those impacted by supporting people with disabilities.

Here is how Cynthia describes her approach to therapy:

I use a person-centered approach that is tailored to address the skills and challenges of the individual to address issues and symptoms that cause them distress. With the permission of the individual, I collaborate with those who support the person to assist with building skills apart from counseling sessions.

I have a background in behavior management and support for behavior plans. When needed, I will work on resources to help the person meet their personal goals and assist with environmental changes that can impact lives in a positive way. Although I use cognitive techniques to change or reframe distressful thought patterns, I also teach skills such as identification of emotions, anger management, relaxation, abuse prevention, problem solving and education on healthy relationships. I see teens through seniors, in individual, family, or marital counseling. My primary clinical interest is helping people recover from trauma.
