Services

Individual Counseling (Ages 5 and up)

Bliss Counseling services provides a safe environment where clients can come to discuss and process any issues he or she may be experiencing related to but not limited to grief, depression, trauma, or just to simply learn more about oneself.

Family Counseling

Bliss Counseling Services provides family therapy as a form of psychotherapy which seeks to reduce distress and conflict in families by improving the interactions between family members. The main focus when applying family therapy is to utilize a Structural, Systematic or Strategic Approach when working with families.

Parent Coaching

Bliss Counseling Services will work with parents in a supportive environment and provide encouragement to help our clients navigate through parenting challenges. We will provide psycho-educational material, skills and tools to address behaviors that will equipt you as you work through parenting challenges.

Group Therapy

Groups enable clients to form bonds with each other in a structured environment that enables them to discuss feelings and ideas openly. They also help them to understand that their concerns are not unique to them and specifically with children that there is nothing wrong with them. Group discussions assist clients in coming to appreciate that others share their problems, fears, worries, and the like.

Assessments

Include a comprehensive Bio- psycho social assessment and treatment plan. Referrals for outside psychological testing by a licensed Psychologist are also available.

Mentoring

Bliss Counseling Services will provide mentoring in the area of role modeling, career and education. Referrals will also be made to agencies that promote and or licensed to provide mentoring services.

Grief Support Group (Free)

Bliss Counseling Services is offering a free grief support group for parents who have lost a baby. "No Rule book. No time frame. No Judgement. Grief is as individual as a fingerprint. Do what is right for your soul."

Art Therapy

"Art therapy is a mental health profession utilizing art media, the creative process, and the resulting art work to explore feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self awareness, manage behaviors, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce, anxiety, and increase self esteem".
As a licensed clinical social worker, I use art as an intervention to explore feelings of expression with a goal of achieving positive outcomes.
