Latrina Ray Raddler
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Master's degree in counseling and a concentration in Marriage and Family Therapy. Upon graduation, I completed an alternative certification Addictions. Since graduating with my Master's degree, I have worked in many mental health and addictions capacities, mostly focusing on substance use within the family. My passion is helping families to heal through the impact of addiction. Over the past ten years, I have worked and volunteered in various counseling and human service settings. I have experience conducting psycho-educational groups and needs-based groups for various populations. My individual and family counseling sessions are all theory-driven and designed to meet the individual client's needs. I also offer assessments in mental health and addictions. I also offer special programming for college students. I believe that the mental health of young adults should be shaped during the most influential time in their lives, their college years. I also strive to decrease the stigma of mental health counseling within the young adult community.
I am currently a doctoral candidate at The University of New Orleans, focusing on Counselor Education and Supervision. It is my goal is to mentor and educate future counselors to provide quality therapeutic services to their clients. I am a board-approved supervisor through the Louisiana Professional Counselor Board, offering individual and group supervision to PLPC's. I am an active member in Louisiana Counseling Association, American Counseling Association, American Association of Counselor Educators and Supervisors, Southern Association of Counselor Educators and Supervisors, and the International Association of Addiction and Offender Professionals.
I believe in the therapeutic process and that everyone has the ability to change. I am an advocate for change and growth within the family as well as self.
