Willowbrooke Counseling Center Team

About our counselors and therapists

Our counselors and therapists are trained to work with individuals, families and groups in treating mental, behavioral, emotional and substance abuse problems and disorders. They have each earned a master’s degree from an accredited graduate program. To become licensed professional counselors (LPCs) and licensed associate professional counselors (LAPCs), they must pass a strenuous exam and gain extensive supervised experience. Our team also includes licensed clinical social workers, licensed master social workers, licensed marriage and family therapists, and licensed associate marriage and family therapists.
