Lacy Allen Watkins Counseling Services, LMHC, CAP, DCC, Counselor in Panama City
Are your fears keeping you from reaching your highest potential? Fears can cause us a great deal of pain and suffering.Suffering is part of the human condition and something we all have in common. I'm familiar with suffering and believe the cessation of suffering is attainable. Whether you struggle with emotional distress or are interested in personal growth, using evidence-based practices, I will guide you on a path of problem exploration and assist you in eliciting your own solutions and overcoming fears that have held you back.I look forward to guiding you on a journey of recovery.
My specialties include maternal mental health, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, anxiety disorders, depression, veteran's issues, addictions, relationship difficulties, trauma, Borderline Personality Disorder, distance counseling (therapy using video conferencing, tele-mental health), and group therapy for co-occurring disorders.
Using empirical-based treatment modalities, such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Relapse Prevention, and Exposure and Response Prevention, I guide clients on the exploration of thoughts, beliefs, feelings, and behaviors that facilitate the development of greater insight and effective coping strategies needed to maximize functioning and minimize symptoms.
