Practice Philosophy

My practice philosophy is person-centered and tailored to each set of life experiences and perspective. As your clinician, I am there to support your healing process and create a safe space to process your thoughts and feelings. Therapy is a powerful tool to help understand your past and identify current stressors and patterns. I believe that each individual is resilient and capable of personal growth. I utilize evidence-based practice and strengths-based perspective to promote a healing environment with compassion and empathy. My practice is guided by the client to focus on your clinical goals.

Charlyn G Ortal, MSW, MPH

Biography

I graduated from the University of Southern California School of Social Work with a concentration in Medical/ Health Social Work. I also received my Master of Public Health from the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health with a specialization in Community Health Sciences and Women’s Health. My social work experience ranges from internships at a hospital/ dialysis center, working abroad in the UK as a child protection social worker, to my last role as a Clinical Case Manager for a large transitional shelter in Orange County. I am excited to join the Hurtt’s Family Health Clinic’s Behavioral Health team and look forward to serving the diverse populations in our community!

 

Practice Philosophy

I believe that the beauty of the social work profession is that it allows us to work in different systems that include the individual. Having said that, I truly believe that everyone in an individual’s life is intersectional, including their mental health. I serve as a light to illuminate the path an individual would like to take in their treatment, not a guide. My clinical practice is client-centered and culturally sensitive, based on treatment that is grounded in evidence.
