Elizabeth Read, MS, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Asheville
I'd like to tell you the stories of why counseling works. About the vibrant woman who stopped by my office to say goodbye as she heads off on an exciting new chapter- who first appeared at my door, head down, tears her only friend, fighting depression. Or a man, who in spite of constant stressors and family struggles, is finding what works for anxiety. My clients are people who are curious about themselves and about how to improve their lives. They are students, professionals, stay at home parents, and couples who have realized they are ready for a change.
My clients are generally adults and couples with a wide range of issues- anxiety being the most frequent. I also see older teens/ young adults dealing with stress, anxiety and perfectionist issues. I have 15 years experience in the mental health field. See website for more information. Sliding scale accepted on limited basis.
Change doesn't happen overnight. But it is possible to feel better. I will help you navigate your story so you can start feeling good about yourself and find answers to whatever it is that brought you to this page. Come by for a free visit and let's talk.
