Hi, my name is Chyna Doughty and I earned my Bachelor degree in Psychology with a minor in Sociology from East Carolina University and a Master of Science degree in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) from Valdosta State University. I am under directed and clinical supervision with Dr. Ramirez at L.E.A.F. Therapy Services LLC.
Although my title is MFT, I work with individuals and groups as well.
As a therapist, I view clients as stuck rather than sick. I believe that everyone has the ability to learn to navigate any situation, they just need other ways to think about their dilemma. I am also a strong believer in the ideas which suggest all behaviors make sense in context, and all behavior is communication. Rather than blaming individuals, or judging them for the predicament they are in, I believe it is my primary duty to understand them and learn to think the way they do. A problem cannot be resolved if there is no understanding of why it may have happened in the first place.
I look forward to working with you and or your family at L.E.A.F. Therapy Services
