Clinical Assessment

Clinical assessment is a way of diagnosing and planning treatment for a patient. I assess patients’ skills and abilities, and look towards societal factors, environmental factors, cultural factors, life history, and more to figure out what is wrong.

Anxiety Counseling

Is your stress causing you physical pain? If anxiety and stress have taken over your life, I’m here to help. I take simple, paced steps to help you reduce your suffering. I begin by helping you understand your anxiety, thoughts, feelings, and sensations. Then, I help you learn ways to relax your mind and body.

By helping you make small changes to your environment, you’ll feel more in control and balanced. Depending on the severity of your anxiety, I may use a wide range of therapy modalities, including CBT, DBT, and mindfulness practice. 

Depression Counseling

Depression is one of the most common mental illnesses in the United States, with more than 17 million adults living with it. Common symptoms include irritability, social isolation, persistent feelings of sadness, and significant weight gain or loss.

If self-help strategies like exercising regularly, practicing good sleep, eating a healthy diet, or joining a support group aren’t helping, turn to L. Bryant Counseling and Consulting. I see and understand your pain, and will help guide you towards a balanced life.

Diverse Teens together

Family, Adolescent & Teen Counseling

Almost four million children and teenagers may experience mental health issues. Age, gender, and genetics can also influence a teen’s resilience to life changes. Loss of a loved one or pet, poverty, bullying, school, and divorce are some of the events that may affect your child’s mental health.

If your child is acting out, call my office today to schedule your family therapy session.

How Many Sessions are Needed?

Counseling services are quite individualized and dependent on your goals, current concerns, number of sessions you plan on attending. It's important to have an open and ongoing dialogue with your therapist about treatment progression, goals, and any concerns you have.

Some individuals will seek counseling for a single session, whether it's to learn coping strategies, to feel heard and validated, to assess their options, or just out of curiosity. There is evidence supporting benefits for both single session counseling services and long-term based interventions depending on the presenting concern.

What To Expect When Using Health Insurance

Before your first appointment, it is important to contact your insurance provider and verify if your plan covers mental health services. Most do, but there are some exceptions. When you make your first appointment, I will ask for your insurance information and help you verify your mental health benefits.


For many people, using health insurance to pay for counseling, there is a co-pay, or flat fee, due at the time of the appointment. The amount is determined by the specific insurance plan you have. Your insurance card may list your co-pay amount. Mental health service co-pays are labeled as "specialist" rates.
