We are a small mental health practice specializing in working with children, adolescents and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, executive functioning deficits and/or other social learning challenges.
In an effort to reach more clients in need of mental health services, Chris Abildgaard created the SLC Counseling Associates, LLC to be able to accept insurance coverage for individual counseling. We are very excited about this endeavor and are hoping to positively impact the lives of more individuals within our community.
July 26, 2019: Due to an influx of referrals, the SLC-CA is starting a waiting list for individual counseling sessions. We are looking to add on to our clinical staff to ensure the best clinical care and provide that service to as many people possible. Thank you for your patience. You can find a form below to complete if you are interested in being added to our wait list. We currently are not scheduling any new in takes until the middle or end of August.
We have the ability to work with individuals of all ages. We have clinicians who specialize in therapy for young children and we have clinicians who specialize in working with young adults. All providers integrate various methods of counseling procedures when working with clients. They include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), forms of behavior modification, and methodologies associated with Social Thinking©
When working with children, family participation is an important part of the therapeutic process. Families should expect to have "homework" and will be given different strategies to try at home.
Everyone goes through periods of life where they may benefit from speaking with a trained mental health professional. Many of the clients who seek out our particular expertise:
May be struggling with navigating the social world.
May have difficulty dealing with anxiety, depression, OCD, etc. or may display signs of other mental health concerns.
May be struggling with parenting /relationship issues with their children.
May require individual support in the areas of executive functioning or emotional regulation.
May be transitioning from high school into post secondary/vocational settings and need assistance in planning the next stages of life.
