Mission Statement

Diligently working to provide quality mental health services to those in need regardless of race, religion, socioeconomic status, or political affiliation.

Philosophy

At Life Skills Awareness (LSA), we believe that everyone deserves access to mental health services, regardless of what stage of life they are in.

About our Team

Therapists at LSA utilize a systematic and holistic approach. Our goal is to identify presenting problems and provide interventions that implement change and support throughout the therapy process and beyond. Early intervention, family inclusion, and utilization of community resources are essential to LSA’s treatment approach.

Life Skills Awareness teaches the learned behaviors that we utilize to manage our lives.  Everyone acquires life skills from their parents and others through experience and observation, so our office utilizes systemic and holistic practices to identify and achieve their goals.  Life skills needs are different for each person and depend on your life circumstances, culture, beliefs, age, geography, morals, etc. Life skills are not always taught directly but often learned indirectly through experience and practice, and they help us to accomplish our desire to live to our fullest potential.

They are essential problem solving behaviors that we need to appropriately and responsibly manage our personal lives. Overall, life skills are a specific set of skills that assist you in your everyday life like using and balancing your bank account, locating community resources, creating a budget, living with a recovery issue (drug/alcohol, physical, mental), preparing for a career and/or looking for a job, self-perception and how you perceive others. Life Skills Awareness professionals meet the client where they are in their development and works in collaboration to enhance the specific life skills that are needed to modify their thoughts and behaviors.

Upon completion of services and behavioral modifications each client can expect:

a. Increased self-esteem
b. Gained/increased confidence
