She is the parent of two children, one by adoption and one by birth, and has hosted two exchange students. Obviously, Ms. Logan tries to tailor her life to help others in need.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

The treatment modalities most frequently utilized are cognitive behavior therapy, solution-focused brief therapy, psychoeducation, motivational interviewing, and supportive therapy. At times, I incorporate games, worksheets, and activities so that you can be fully engaged even utilizing the virtual platform.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My biggest strengths are my engagement, humor, compassion, and empathy. I have cared for children not born to me, so I know how it is to incorporate others into your life. I, too, have experienced significant grieve so I use my trauma to connect to pain my clients may be experiencing. I encourage my children to share openly so that we can learn and grow from one another.
