I feel called to help those in need. I believe that we have an obligation to each other to help when we see an opportunity. I believe that all people have the need to be safe, secure, loved, have a sense of worth, receive attention, and be understood. I also believe that people need to have a sense of control and the ability to predict what is next for them in life.
I believe that people need to be able to recognize and handle upset feelings, to be powerful in independence and competence as well as to enjoy relationships and attain a sense of belonging. I also believe that people should be encouraged to explore their environment as well as outside of their environment. I believe in the dignity and worth of people.

Services and Specialties
We all start out life with family whether blood relatives, adopted parents, a close-knit neighbor, or a foster family. Your family when you are born influences every aspect of your life. Family counseling might address specific issues such as marital or financial problems, conflict between parents and children, or the impact of substance abuse or a mental illness on the entire family.
Lykins Counseling Clinic provides family therapy sessions to teach you skills to improve family connections and get through stressful times, even after you complete your therapy sessions.
Individual counseling (sometimes called psychotherapy, talk therapy, or treatment) is a process in which clients work one-on-one with a mental health clinician in a safe, caring, and confidential environment. This counseling can help you deal with many personal topics in life such as anger, depression, anxiety, marriage and relationship challenges, substance abuse, parenting problems, school difficulties, and career changes.
At Lykins Counseling Clinic, we counsel individuals to explore their feelings, beliefs, and behaviors, and to work through challenging memories.
Most marriages and other relationships aren’t perfect. Each person brings his or her own ideas, values, opinions and personal history into a relationship, and they don’t always match their partner’s. At Lykins Counseling Clinic, we want to help couples recognize and resolve conflicts and improve their relationships. Counseling can help couples in all types of intimate relationships, regardless of sexual orientation or marriage status.
We want to give couples the tools to communicate better, negotiate differences, problem solve and even argue in a healthier way.
