HOW WE SUPPORT

Easy Does It Counseling provides critical mental health care for the LGBTQIA+ community with WPATH evaluations for trans-affirming surgery and referrals for Rx and HRT. We provide psychoeducation, gendered social skills development plans, and family reunification counseling. Our BIPOC therapists specialize in suicide prevention and support using an alliance-based approach.

Addiction

An overwhelming urge to engage in certain behaviors despite negative consequences. Easy Does It Counseling treats both process / behavioral addiction and substance addiction with an amoralistic approach. Addiction is not intrinsically immoral, apathetic, or complacent; thus, a values-skills-environmental approach will be used to support those through their formative recovery and maintenance.

Anxiety

Dysregulated nervous system presents as insomnia, migraines, anxiety, chronic pain, gastrointestinal distress, and/or high or low blood pressure. Easy Does It Counseling approaches support with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), the gold-standard, evidence-based treatment for the reduction and abatement of anxiety symptoms, irritability, self-harm, and suicidal ideation.

Adult Autism

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Autism is a lifelong condition impacting sensory processing, communication, social interaction, and cognitive flexibility. Easy Does It Counseling provides support through psychoeducation, sensory profiles, and social skills development plans under a neurodivergence model.

ADHD

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurological condition that interferes with performative memory and executive functioning. Easy Does It Counseling supports individuals by creating focused plans to address attention difficulty, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness that may contribute to low self-esteem, troubled relationships, and difficulty at school or work.
