No. This is not counseling or therapy. Yes, I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Texas, but we will be entering into a coach-client relationship, which is different from a therapeutic one.
Therapy is an important tool for processing things like trauma, anxiety disorders, and various other mental health diagnoses. In our coaching work, we will be focusing on your relationship with alcohol and will not be working on any mental health diagnoses you may qualify for.
If you think you may qualify for a diagnosis of an alcohol use disorder, please reach out to a therapist in your area who specializes in addiction and substance use.
