Welcome to First Step Counseling Center. We are a licensed mental health counseling center providing counseling services to St. Augustine, FL and the greater Jacksonville area.
Our mental health counselors are compassionate, empathetic people who want to help make a significant impact in the lives of others. We are skillful, licensed counselors that help lead you on a journey of growth and self-discovery, which allows you to overcome obstacles, reach personal goals, and lead a more productive life. At First Step Counseling Center we can diagnose and treat psychological disorders, support you through difficult life situations, and create an action plan to bring about behavior change. By assisting with clinical conditions such as depression, substance abuse and anxiety, we can help learn how to adapt to change and function positively in your day-to-day live.
At First Step Counseling Center our counselors use a variety of approaches to help clients. One widely used approach involves cognitive behavioral therapy, which replaces problematic thoughts, feelings, and behaviors with more adaptive ones. We also utilize a more solution-focused approach when necessary; working with people to develop problem-solving skills. Our support takes on many forms. We can work with you one on one, in couples sessions, or in family therapy to help with grief counseling, relationship counseling, couples counseling, and family counseling. Our mental health counselors see a wide variety of clients, so please take the first step and contact us today.
