As a woman, I understand that we have so many life challenges to balance. It can be difficult to achieve that balance.

Coping Skills are invaluable in learning how to relive after the trenches of substance abuse and/or addiction. Skills derived from the 12 step philosophy as well as an evidenced base approach to recovery can be advantageous to helping you discover a sober way of functioning. Recovery is day by day, some enjoy going to daily meetings and some combine meetings with direct support of a Counselor. Recovery is possible!Make Appointment
In cognitive instruction, Counselors can provide clear explanations and models of behaviors and thinking that individuals may not be able to develop spontaneously. These individuals practice with peers in pairs and small groups, as well as one-on-one to adapt the problem-solving approaches and explanations of the Counselor and/or Facilitator to develop their own understanding.Make Appointment
Dual diagnosis is a term used to describe people with mental illness who have coexisting problems with drugs and/or alcohol. The relationship between the two is complex, and the treatment of people with co-occurring substance abuse (or substance dependence) and mental illness is more complicated than the treatment of either condition alone. This is unfortunately a common situation—many people with mental illness have ongoing substance abuse problems, and many people who abuse drugs and alcohol also experience mental illness.Make Appointment
Many hear the term “Life Coaching” thrown around often but may not have a clear understanding of what a Life Coach can do. Life Coaching is very different from Counseling. Life Coaching does not require the use of theoretical orientations to treat a mental illness. Life Coaching by Veronda Bellamy is designed to help you become unstuck in life, guided in helping you to discover balance and meaning in life challenges.Make Appointment
