About Our Therapist

Brooke Rothford has a degree in Psychology and received her Master’s degree in Rehabilitation Counseling at California State University Fresno. She is a Certified Rehabilitation counselor as well as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor.  She currently is a therapist with Fresno Pacific University’s On-Site Counseling Program, and Roubicek and Thacker Counseling Services.

Working at Spirit of Woman, a residential program for women with substance abuse and addiction, gave her exposure to women with PTSD, trauma from child abuse, rape, domestic violence and detrimental unfavorable environments. Working in the substance addiction field for the last 3 years at Aegis Treatment Centers as Counselor/Supervising Counselor has given her the opportunity to work with a culturally diverse population and to demonstrate her sensitivity to people from many socioeconomic backgrounds. She has counseled clients for co-occurring disorders such as depression, anxiety, grief and loss, anger and self-esteem issues. Brooke uses techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Client-Centered Therapy.

Seeking Safety Group

Seeking Safety is based on the work of Lisa M. Najavits. It is a treatment designed to treat both PTSD and substance abuse concurrently. This is a 1.5-hour group that provides the foundation for future therapeutic work. In this group, survivors will learn about PTSD and substance abuse, healthy coping skills, how to restore lost ideals, and how to take care of themselves.

Youth Prevention and Intervention Inititiave

Prevention: Because we know human trafficking, in its simplest form, is a byproduct of severe trauma which sadly all too often takes place before the age of 12, our youth initiative offers young adults the same therapeutic service (Case Management, Counseling) that we offer in our Adult division coupled with age appropriate and activities and Classes.

Intervention: We are not looking to reinvent the wheel, we want to make it run smoothly. In order to do this MFT works in the community with local high schools to give educational leaders opportunities to become trauma-informed. This opens the doors to have informed conversation with students about HT 101 and allows them to know the warning and danger signs to watch for.
