Concord Counseling Services is the private practice of Bradley Blackburn, LCMHCA (That’s me, folks). I am a licensed professional counselor offering in-person therapy sessions in downtown Concord, NC and teletherapy sessions to residents of North Carolina. Currently accepting new adult clients and older adolescents (16 and up).
A lot goes into being a person and sometimes it can feel overwhelming. You are capable of complex emotions that are not enjoyable such as anxiety, depression, helplessness, anger, and fear to name a few. They can get the better of anybody at times. And you are also capable of courage, compassion for yourself and others, persistence, meaningful activity, and even joy. It takes help sometimes to get to that, and that is the work I want to offer you; to help you engage with your life and your very real feelings in a way that you truly want.
I believe in approaching that from a non-judgmental viewpoint with positive regard for each clients’ personhood and abilities. I work with clients dealing with depression, anxiety, lost sense of self, personality disorders, substance use issues, family systems problems, and communication needs. I utilize principles from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) as well as DBT and CBT to help my clients build workable strategies for getting to where they want to be.
Psychologist Steven Hayes is fond of saying that a human life is not a problem to be solved but something to be experienced and lived. Coming to accept this mindset is where I believe the work of therapy starts. I want to help build self-compassion in my clients so that they can work the lived experience into their story in a way that matters to them.
