Second Nature Counseling was founded in 2018 to address the need for counseling services in the community. Our team has worked with clients who have struggled with all areas of life. Our experiences are different but our personal philosophies are the same; mental wellness is important and good mental health is necessary for success in life.
Our clinicians meet New York State requirements to provide mental health counseling to our clients. We participate in regular continuing professional development so we can utilize the most up-to-date counseling approaches and modalities.
Each member of our clinical team receives ongoing supervision from a member of our leadership team. This allows for each clinician to continue learning and improving their skills.
We utilize various tools and assessments when providing care. We believe having consistent feedback on the counseling process allows our clinicians to adjust therapies to meet the specific needs of each of our clients.
We are dedicated to enhancing the lives of those who have taken the leap to realize their potential. Counselors on our team provide counseling services to address many areas of life, including anxiety, depression, changes in living environments, and stress from work and school.
Expanding the focus to the whole person, rather than a diagnosis, allows for a more comprehensive approach to improving mental wellness. Utilizing the wellness model in counseling allows us to conceive an individual approach that favors client-driven treatment.
We are dedicated to being the best we can be so that we can support our clients as they work toward becoming the best they can be.
