Elizabeth Handley, LMHC, CCMHC, Counselor in Ashland
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and well as the Professional Development Director for the Massachusetts Mental Health Counselor's Association. I work with individuals, teenagers, children and their families to help them resolve issues and achieve goals that are meaningful for them. In the process, they develop new skills that help them learn to think and act differently than they have in the past.
As the developer of Blue Brain Training, I have helped many individuals and families reduce conflict, anxiety and tension with simple but effective techniques and tools. Visit (www.bluebraintraining.com), or call for a free phone consult.
In addition to traditional therapy practices, I practice Canine Assited Psychotherapy (CAP), which includes the services of a well mannered, experienced dog in sessions when appropriate. For more information, including training and credentials, please see my website http://pawsitiveprogress.org/
