About Me

Hi there! My name is Darci Alston. I am currently living in upstate New York. I am a military spouse and a mother who has been counseling for 4 years. I understand how amazing and stressful military life is. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Credentialed Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor in New York. I received my Master of Arts from Hawaii Pacific University. I have been working in the field of both mental health and substance abuse. I have worked with children, adolescents and adults. I genuinely enjoy helping others. I love to see small progress and empower others to make positive changes in their lives.

My counseling approach encompasses many modalities all in order to help you reach your goals. Solution focused, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing and mindfulness are all examples of techniques I use. My counseling style is client focused. It is warm, interactive, open and non-judgmental. Therapy is a safe place to work on issues in order to better our quality of life.

You've taken a difficult first step, reaching out in order to get help. I'm here for you and ready to empower you when you are ready!

I feel extremely lucky to have been paired up with Darci from the start of my counseling path. I can’t say enough about how thorough and helpful she has been with everything I have brought to her attention. I feel that since I have been having sessions with, doing worksheets for, and messaging her, that I have been able to make positive decisions and moves with my life that have been extremely beneficial. I am so very thankful for her kindness and all of her help.
