Haley Nolz is a Master’s Level Student Intern pursuing her Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Hodges University. She has been interning since January 2023 and will graduate with her degree at the end of December 2023.
Haley has previous experience working with adults who have experienced domestic violence, sexual assault, and/or human trafficking. With this experience, she has gained knowledge and experience with individuals who have experienced many forms of abuse and trauma.
Haley also has experience working with a variety of adults, children, and adolescents through private practice and within the community. Haley also has experience running group therapy with children, adolescents, and adults. Specifically, with children/adolescents with learning disabilities, adolescents/adults within a residential maternity home serving pregnant women, children/adolescents dealing with grief from losing a loved one, and DUI groups with adults.
Additionally, Haley has completed training for Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Domestic Violence Core Competency training. She is currently working on training in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well.
She has a person-centered therapy approach, also known as Rogerian therapy. She helps clients with a non-authoritative approach that allows them to take the lead in sessions while discovering their own solutions with guidance. This includes motivational interviewing which posits that clients possess the strength and ability to grow and change regardless if past attempts at change have failed. She practices with an empathetic and non-judgmental stance.
She is passionate about creating a safe environment for clients to heal and grow. Her priority with clients is to help guide them towards personal growth and self-expression while also minimizing negative feelings such as defensiveness, regret, guilt, insecurity, and shame. I work with clients to improve their self-esteem, alleviate anxiety, gain deeper self-understanding, achieve self-acceptance, and build more authentic relationships.
