Hi my name is Antwan and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the states of Alabama and Georgia. I have been in the counseling profession for over a decade. Along with being a licensed therapist I teach as an adjunct professor in the graduate program for Counseling and Human Studies at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). My primary therapy approach is person-centered therapy. I work with adult clients between the ages of 21 to 55 years old utilize identifiable resources on becoming aware of self by helping them to resolve barriers to personal growth. My primary areas of focus are mental health, substance abuse, gay/lesbian issues, anxiety, and depression.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
In our first session together, we'll start with brief introductions, then dive into the specific challenges you're facing. This will help me create a tailored plan for us to work through in follow-up sessions.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
The treatment methods that I utilize in therapy are based upon each individual clients needs and identified goals in therapy. These are the primary approaches clients can expect to be utilized in the therapy space: Person-Centered Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Existential Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
