Hi, my name is Ron Cummings and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist at Creekside Counseling. I decided to become a therapist after being a school teacher for 9 years. During that time, I realized that many of my students were having problems learning due to what they experienced in the outside world. As a result, I obtained an MA in Counseling Psychology in 2013. Since then I have worked as an MFT intern therapist working with individuals, couples, families and groups. I am currently waiting to take my exam for the final full MFT license.
I have discovered that life does not always provide us a smoothly paved road. I experienced a car crash injury, death in my family, suffering panic attacks with agoraphobia, being burglarized, beat down, having my car stolen, being unemployed and nearly homeless. I was able to make it through these things due to the support of others and through therapy. This is the reason that I am here at Creekside Counseling.
I believe in working collaboratively with my clients on goals they wish to reach as well as overcoming anxiety, depression, relationship problems, and situational difficulties. I have post-graduate training in EMDR and DBT. I regularly use CBT, solution focused, client centered, and Bowen Family therapies.
