Bob Coates, MDiv, LMFT-TN, LPC, -VA, Licensed Professional Counselor in Arlington
Highly confidential, sensitive direct access by phone with me for between session crises or questions and when making appointments. My practice has significant compassion as to the private trials of pain, whether physical, spiritual, and psychological pain, and depression, and helping family members understand. I work extensively with families in all walks of life. One major benefit of working with me is that I offer secure and in crisis tele-medicine sessions with individuals and families. I have an understanding of professional stress, impaired healthcare practitioners, recovering healthcare professionals, attorneys and judges, substance abuse addictions, and medication compliance.
I am committed to assist my client's relationship with their family members, and physicians, especially with medical pain management when medication is helpful. My tele-health treatment is via highly secure internet connection. I am committed to your success in your life hopes and dreams.
I regularly do intensive therapy with couples over extensive weekend sessions at discrete locations. I also contract with corporations as Employee Assistance Program services. I am the Editor-in-Chief of The SyMedica Group's Licensed Continuing Education Program for professionals by the Florida Division of Medical Quality Assurance.
