In 2006, Judson Haynes began work in the field of psychology at a substance use treatment center. From this point, Judson Haynes has worked in a variety of settings that include dual diagnosis treatment centers, private practice, and at a community mental health center. Judson Haynes has worked directly with clients with substance use disorders, dually diagnosed clients, clients with chronic mental illness, Veterans, incarcerated clients, adolescents, families, and as a crisis counselor assessing individuals for risk of harm to self and others.
His experiences during this time led to a passion for finding resources that provide insight into complex issues like motivation, resistance, depression, and anxiety. This passion continues with his interest and commitment to assisting other counselors though supervision, continued work with clients addressing a wide range of issues and reviewing articles on betterhelp.com/advice.
Judson Haynes completed his Master’s in Addiction Counseling from the Hazelden Betty Ford Graduate School of Addiction Studies in 2010.
Over the course of the past 12 years of working with individual clients, couples, and families, my philosophy of mental health and wellness has in large part been shaped by reviewing the work of other mental health professionals and academics. Their desire to advance the field of psychology through books, articles and studies inspire me to seek effective ways of facilitating positive change in others. There is a tremendous amount of information regarding mental health and wellness and I aim to support those seeking help to connect with the information that is approachable, applicable, and helpful.
