Meet Our Therapists

Isabel Rodriguez

Isabel is a second-year Master’s student in the Counseling and Educational Development program at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG). She is working towards a Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.

Isabel’s belief is that a collaborative partnership is the best approach to counseling. The client is the expert of themselves, and her role is to facilitate growth and change in their lives. She strives to create an open and safe space for collaborative care that will create meaningful change toward the client’s goals. A client-centered, strengths-based humanistic approach is her counseling foundation, which means that she believes that meaningful change comes through a therapeutic relationship centered around genuineness, empathy, and unconditional acceptance. From her master’s level classes, she has in-depth knowledge of various theoretical approaches. She uses concepts from Person Centered Therapy (PCT) to approach clients’ therapeutic needs. She is also pursuing specialized training in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

Before participating in this internship at Family Services, Isabel graduated from Appalachian State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology with a concentration in Families and Intimate Relationships. Isabel’s professional background includes an advanced practicum experience in which she provided counseling to clients of young adult age at the Nicholas A. Vacc Clinic.
