About the Counseling and Assessment Center of Brevard

As a professional practicing in the mental health field for over 28 years, I’m often asked what drives me. I founded the Counseling and Assessment Center of Brevard in 2018, inspired by a vision of harnessing the strengths of individuals to help them live their healthiest, most fulfilling life. My goal with the Counseling and Assessment Center of Brevard was to assemble a dedicated team of clinicians, passionately focused on serving the unique needs of children, teenagers, and families, filling in the gap of much-needed care.

Therapy, in many cases, is sought for an individual’s challenges. However, at our center, we recognize that no person exists in isolation. The trials of one can reverberate through an entire family system, echoing with far-reaching effects. By integrating this philosophy, our clinicians cater not only to the immediate needs of the individual but also to the larger dynamics of the family.

Additionally, we extend our services to adults, understanding that the shadows of one’s childhood can often cast implications on their present-day challenges. Our holistic approach encompasses the entirety of an individual’s journey, supporting them at every life stage.

Beyond therapy, a cornerstone of our practice lies in offering comprehensive psychological assessments. These are designed for a range of needs – from diagnostic clarifications to educational accommodations and personal growth. We believe in providing insights that empower our clients to understand themselves better and navigate life’s challenges more effectively.

At the heart of the Counseling and Assessment Center of Brevard is a commitment to individualized care, insight, and transformation. Join us on this journey to better mental and emotional well-being.
