Jared Becknell teaches and supervises masters counseling students on their way to becoming mental health professionals. During the pandemic, he moved and worked in Alaska with children and families that struggle with a wide range of concerns and challenges. Additionally, he has been working with adolescents all the way up to adults regarding trauma, substance use, sexual abuse survivors/offenders, severe mental health disorders, anxiety, and depression.
His theoretical approach is post-modernism, with a foundation in narrative therapy. I hope to challenge the ways in which the problems have storied individuals and create alternatives or new identities that assist in living a more preferred way of living. Post-modernism moves away from traditional therapy modalities and advocates for new, creative and person-centered mediums to improve therapeutic conversations.
