About me

Hello, I am Dr. Patrick A Casthely. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), a Master-Level Certified Addiction Professional (MCAP), and a Certified Mental health Professional (CMHP). I hold a Doctorate in Philosophy with emphasis in Counseling. I have completed the Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior therapy (TF-CBT) trainings, and I am board recognized. I have over twenty four years of experience as a therapist, in both the Community Mental Health Model, Substance Abuse Treatment Provider, and in Private Practice. My experience includes working with individuals, couples and families from all walks of life.

My counseling style is eclectic, meaning I incorporate a variety of therapeutic modalities to create the ideal treatment to meet the client's needs. I strive to provide a safe, supportive, nonjudgemental, and empathic therapeutic environment. I believe that everyone is uniquely different and may not respond to a one size fits all therapeutic modality. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, person centered, family systemic, and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific goals and desires. I tend to work with clients from a strength-based, positive, and affirming perspective. My specialties include assessment/evaluation, substance abuse/addictions counseling, individual therapy, family therapy, couples therapy, play therapy, etc. I have experience working with adults, children/adolescents, couples and families within a multitude of different settings. I am a holistic practitioner that believes in treating mind, body, and spirit. I am skilled in both Mental Health and Substance Abuse, evidenced by my certifications.

It takes courage to take the first step towards addressing life's problems. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and help you discover the answers, within yourself. I hope to earn the privilege of working with you!
