My Approach to Helping
Mrs. Charley Rodich is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and holds Masters degrees in both Child Development and Clinical Social Work. She enjoys working with children, teens and young adults. Mrs. Charley’s ability to empower, connect and build a strong relationship with her clients helps them to overcome personal obstacles and improve their mental health.
She has been working in the mental health community for five years spending time as a therapist at Children’s Hospital of Colorado, Eating Recovery Center of Chicago, and The Clarity Clinic. In her roles she received advanced training and learned cutting-edge clinical services, making a positive impact in the lives of clients in outpatient psychiatry clinics, inpatient, and partial hospitalization programs.
She practices cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, family therapy, parent management training, exposure-response therapy, and mindfulness. Additionally, she is trained in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR). EMDR offers a nontraditional approach to psychotherapy designed to help clients diminish negative feelings while processing traumatic events and can be used on clients of all ages.
Mrs. Charley has experience treating various mental health disorders including such as anxiety, depression, trauma, conduct and behavioral problems, ADHD, adjustment and relational issues, eating disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
She incorporates a strengths-based approach along with a person-in-environment perspective to deliver evidence-based intervention modalities to treat her clients. Combining research findings, empirical knowledge, and clinical assessment skills, along with the contextual factors of her client, Mrs. Charley takes a collaborative approach with her clients to develop a treatment plan to best meet their goals. She makes it a priority to create a safe, trusting, and non-judgmental environment where her clients can explore emotional difficulties and learn new tools and coping strategies to help manage symptoms.
