Hello, my name is Rick Daigneault (the last name is pronounced Dayno). I am a licensed mental health counselor. Thank you for taking a few minutes to read over my information. I know there are many therapists / counselors to choose from but I believe you will find my experience and caring approach helpful. I offer counseling (also known as psychotherapy) when circumstances, anxiety, depression, or grief become overwhelming or interfere with living. If you have tried everything to feel better but are still stuck, I am here to listen and help you get through this difficult time.
Are you struggling in your relationships? Does anger, hurt and emotional distance seem to be all that’s left in your marriage? I also provide couple counseling to help you and your partner resolve conflicts, improve communication and reexperience the joy you once found with each other.
Counseling is a goal-oriented, active, and collaborative process that will allow you to challenge your problems head-on in a supportive environment. Typically, behavioral, cognitive, and philosophical techniques will be used in the counseling process. Clients who are the most successful come to sessions ready to work.
So, what is my background and experience? I earned my master’s degree in community / clinical psychology from the University of Central Florida. I completed my internship with the Center for Drug Free Living, Orlando, Florida. I completed my bachelor’s degree in psychology at Stetson University, Deland, Florida. I have been licensed in the State of Florida as a mental health counselor since 1982, and I am a “qualified mental health supervisor.”
I taught undergraduate psychology and human services for the University of Phoenix, and I have a wide background of professional experiences (40 years), including mental health, hospice, medical / health services, child welfare, emergency social services, community corrections, and private practice.
I would consider it my privilege to work with you. Are you ready for change in your life? Call Behavioral Healthcare Services today!
