We at American Counselors are committed to a personalized approach to each client, and to maintaining awareness that while you may have issues and concerns similar to others, you are a unique person…with unique issues and concerns.

We do not believe in “cookie-cutter” treatment and are devoted to helping adults, teens, children, couples, or groups confront concerns and work to resolve those issues at an appropriate pace for that individual.

Beginning with an introductory assessment and evaluation, we are dedicated to helping each person find that approach that best fits and directs them on the best path to healing, health, and happiness.

We are committed to servicing our diverse population and rely on open and honest interactions with our counselors to ensure cultural sensitivity and appreciation to all.



American Counselors was founded by professionals who have worked and provided leadership in a variety of hospitals, community clinics, schools, medical, mental health, and business/professional settings..

AC’s intent is to provide individualized services to the many in need of all types of behavioral health assistance, in a timely manner…which often leads to delays in treatment  

We understand that, in most cases, issues have been ongoing.  We understand how much effort it takes to reach out and seek assistance. We understand that the longer you wait, the further you are away from achieving your goal. 

We are committed and standby ready to help…even if that means referring you somewhere else for more immediate or appropriate treatment.

We understand this is about you….not us.  Contact us today, if we can be of assistance.
