Christine M. Abad, LMHC, Counselor in Pensacola
Saturday appointments available - Is your child or teenager fearful, anxious, or worried? Does she avoid school, social activities, or have difficulty with transitions, unfamiliar environments, or new things? When your child has difficulty with anxiety, it can impact the entire family and can be challenging to move forward. I understand these challenges and am here to help. I offer individual and family counseling for children, teens, and young adults. I have enjoyed working with this age group for many years, and I believe in a collaborative counseling relationship in which we work together on issues that are impacting your family.
I have specialized training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which is used to treat disorders including anxiety and depression. I also have experience and training in working with military families on issues such as deployment, reintegration, relocation, and adjustment to a new school.
Perdido Counseling is located in the West Pensacola area near Perdido Key. We are the only counseling practice located in this area. I offer evening and Saturday appointments in order to accommodate school age children and working individuals. Call or email me today to schedule your first appointment.
