Welcome To Manatee Associates of Counseling & Assessment!
Manatee Associates of Counseling & Assessment LLC is an overall wellness center. We specialize in therapy, coaching, and assessment services. We offer these services to a broad range of individuals, couples, families, and businesses. Our goal is to help individuals begin to design and live out the life they desire by identifying and optimizing factors that are working for them in life, while also identify and minimizing factors that are working against them in life.
We recognize the need to prioritize mental health. Therefore, through the lens of talking therapy we establish a collaborative relationship with the individuals, couples, and families we see. We strive to act empathically towards understanding patterns within your life, how they developed, and the impact those patterns have and are having. Therapy serves as a safe place to gain extra support, clear perspectives, and make decisions that lead to better outcomes for your mental and emotional well-being.
We also recognize that some individuals require a different type of support outside of the clinical therapy box, which is where our life-coaching services have proven to be beneficial. Often individuals find themselves at a crossroad in life. Perhaps while facing this crossroad there is a need for clarity regarding what is happening in life, maybe there is a need for guidance and assistance in deciding what’s next, there could be a need to build self-confidence, or you are seeking accountability. Whatever the need may be, our coaching services offer intentional guidance, support and accountability as you navigate life challenges.
Sometimes you may not have a starting point for what you need. The one thing you may know is things are not working out for you the way you would like them to. This is when you would benefit from our assessment services. A psychological assessment can provide diagnostic clarity for intervention and treatment planning. Often results from psychological evaluations provide insight into ones mental, emotional, and behavioral functioning. This insight can make all the difference in living the life you deserve.
If you find yourself facing one of life’s many challenges or struggles, we want to help. No matter the struggle we are here for you, if there is a need for a more positive self-view, career development, depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, marriage, divorce, communication skills, time-management/productivity, or anything well-being related.
You do not have to keep facing life’s challenges alone. We are here to help!
