Specialty: Family issues, Anxiety, Addiction, Loss, and Depression.
In counseling, we can help pause whatever situation is getting to be too much and collaborate on the next best or healthier thing to do. Maybe it’s family, friends, work uncertainty or discontent. There is a way to stop the problems and start the answers.
I use Brief Solution Focused, Cognitive Behavior therapy (CBT), and other evidenced based practices to support my clients in getting what they want and need from counseling. The overall objective is get them moving back in their life in the right direction. Whether you work with me or with another member of my team, you get the whole of Nugent Family counseling center. We collaborate together to provide the best of what we can offer for our clients.
