Tisha Harry, LCPC

 

Tisha’s journey in the helping professions began in 2002 when she went to work for a mental health center in Alaska. There she facilitated mental health recovery groups, taught individual skills development, conducted case management, and worked on a research project involving mental health and criminal recidivism. At the end of 2005, she pursued a degree in psychology and sociology to further her knowledge of mental health. After achieving this goal in 2011, she worked for the State of Texas investigating allegations of abuse and neglect in psychiatric facilities, group homes, day-habilitation centers, and with other vulnerable populations. In early 2016, Tisha moved back to her beloved Montana and worked as the site coordinator on another research project, this time involving youth with disabilities and employment. Once this project came to completion, Tisha went on staff as theCounseling Pastor at a Christian church in rural Montana while returning to school to complete a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. She is now working toward becoming a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) and hopes to serve the rural and frontier populations of Montana.  

Tisha has great admiration for attachment theory and therapies related to it, as these provide avenues of healing through safe relationships. In effort to serve couples she has completed a level 1 externship for Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and has received certifications both as a SYMBIS couples’ facilitator and as a PREPARE/ENRICH couples’ facilitator. To best serve individuals Tisha uses concepts of EFT and is a trauma informed therapist who has been trained in EMDR through EMDRIA. Her interests are brain/body science, so she continues to build her understanding of neuropsychology and polyvagal theory. Tisha’s education and trainings also include competency in spiritual integration with the ability to apply evidence based Christian interventions.
