Hello, my name is Annette McDaniel and I am the Therapist and Owner at Metamorphosis Counseling and Wellness Services LLC. I believe that everyone has the ability to change, grow and reach their maximum potential if given an opportunity and the resources to do so. My hope is to create an environment in which you will feel comfortable and safe enough to trust me to assist you with your life problems. Always, your sense of safety and well-being is the primary concern. I will collaborate with you, the client, to discover the root cause of your current challenges, identify and employ techniques that will produce the most favorable results for you. I believe in integrating clients’ values into the psychotherapy process, whether they are independent personal values or those closely associated with a specific spiritual/religious tradition. You can expect to learn the skills you need to gain control of your issues, improve your relationships, enhance your personal growth and achieve balance.
I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families. I specialize in the treatment of persons experiencing disturbances of mood and conduct, adjustment and anxiety related disorders, depression, relationship problems, spiritual/faith based concerns and chemical dependence. My counseling approach depends on the needs of the client. Some of the techniques I use are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused, Family Systems, Reality Therapy, Rational Emotive Therapy, Client-centered and Faith-based therapy. The interventions that I use include but are not limited to assertiveness training, problem solving skills, relaxation skills training, cognitive restructuring, thought stopping techniques, education about the disorder, relapse prevention, bibliotherapy,homework assignments and biblical principles.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor, National Certified Counselor and Licensed Massage Therapist. I currently hold a B.S. in Psychology, M.S. in Criminal Justice, M.A. in Mental Health Counseling and a Doctorate in Pastoral Counseling. I am also a military veteran and am also bilingual ( Haitian-Creole and English).
The office is on the bus route, handicapped accessible and the hours of operation are from 9 am to 6pm Monday-Friday. I work by appointments only.
