I am Louise Bargo Biller a Licensed Clinical Social Worker receiving a Master of Social Work Degree from East Carolina University. Since joining Miracles Healing Centers, I now have over 19 years in my second career in private mental health practice. I worked for many years in community based services and management, as well as being a mental health counselor and consultant.
In my work my primary belief is that through a positive relationship with a caring professional it is possible to uncover solutions to the most difficult of life’s struggles. Old behaviors often get in the way, keeping us from becoming the person we want to be. I believe the you are the expert in identifying areas for clinical attention. The benefits gained from psychotherapy depend largely upon your investment in the process. This means that not only will you learn new skills, but can put those skills to use in between sessions to become the person you were destined to be.
My theoretical approach to therapy is an eclectic mix of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I have experience and training in providing psychotherapy for clients with mood disorders, trauma, child and adolescent behavioral problems, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in both adults and children, grief, blending families, relationship struggles, women’s issues, stress, and anger management. Additionally I have expertise in providing therapeutic services for active duty, retired military and military families.
I am also a skilled educator and trainer. I have conducted numerous classes and seminars for parents, child care professionals, public employees, school officials and social work staff. These topics have included workplace stress, behavior management, child abuse, disorders affecting children’s development, couple’s communication. I served as the Early Childhood Mental Health Clinician for Early Head Start, Head Start, More at Four, and NC PreK for nine years. In addition, I have provided clinical supervision and instruction for a large number of provisionally licensed clinical social workers working toward full licensure.
