Jaquenetta Harness is now pursuing her passion for helping save lives one day at a time through providing mental health counseling services to individuals with mental health and substance use disorders. Jaquenetta has worked with adults, adolescents, and families with mental health, substance abuse, and behavioral health disorders in her paraprofessional career. Jaquenetta believes there is no cookie-cutter approach to treatment. Each situation is different. Therefore, in counseling, I like to utilize various evidence-based practices for treatment, including but not limited to Person-Centered, Cognitive Behavioral, Motivational Interviewing & Enhancement, Crisis Theory Intervention, and Existential therapeutic interventions. Jaquenetta is a member of the Phi Alpha Honor Society, LSU BHWETS (Behavioral Health Workforce Education & Training) Scholars, NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF SOCIAL WORK (NASW), and GREATER BATON ROUGE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF BLACK SOCIAL WORK (NABSW).
