Introducing Montel Epperson and Jerrika Henderson

 

We are thrilled to announce that we have added two new Clinical Mental Health Counseling interns to our team! Joining us from the University of Memphis, Montel Epperson and Jerrika Henderson are practicum students who are eager to start meeting with new clients who are seeking to improve their mental health. We know that affordable and affirming mental health care can be elusive and daunting to find, so thanks to our phenomenal new interns, we are now offering FREE counseling! Here’s how the process works:
Send an email to either Montel or Jerrika stating that you are interested in participating in our FREE counseling services. Once you’ve reached out, they will work with you to schedule a time to complete a biopsychosocial. This fancy word just means that they will get some background information from you to help get to know you a little better.
Once you’ve completed the biopsychosocial, you will be able to start having regular counseling sessions via Zoom or over the phone. If those methods are not available to you, don’t fret! Montel and Jerrika are happy to work with you to make necessary accommodations to make this FREE counseling service accessible to everyone.
Its never too late to start working on improving your mental health. Contact Montel or Jerrika to schedule your first FREE session today!

I’m Montel Epperson and I’m from Jackson, TN. I received my B.S. in Psychology from MTSU and currently working on my M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at the University of Memphis. I entered this field because I love seeing others achieve personal success, especially related to their mental health. The reality is almost everybody wants to achieve success, but we all need a little help getting there.

 

 

 

My name is Jerrika Henderson, I am currently pursuing my master’s in clinical mental health counseling. I chose to intern at OUTMemphis because I believe in the power of community and advocacy. For a flower to bloom, seeds must be planted first, and then you must water it and give it sunshine daily. This flower is a representation of our community so when we see it, it is all our responsibility to care for it. Like lending a helping hand, it is our duty to never let anyone fall behind when we can help them. My approach to counseling is holistic. I find that it is best to break barriers from the inside out. How we feel about ourselves typically transferers to our physical appearance and mental state. When we are at peace with our past, we live a healthier and enjoyable life. My goal for all clients is for them to recognize the progress they make and use that to continue pushing forward. Counseling is not a place to feel defeated, it is a place to become who you were always meant to be and Bloom!
