*** LCMHCA, LCASA & CSAC Supervision Available***
Congrats! Taking the initial steps to seek counseling can be overwhelming and it takes courage to make the first steps in finding the right therapist for you. My name is Demetrius Cofield, M.Ed., LCMHCS, LCAS, CSI. I provide both mental health and addictions counseling as well as clinical supervision. My goal is to assist you in your journey of healing and becoming a better you by providing compassionate, supportive, and non-judgmental services. I believe the counseling relationship is one of the most important factors in the healing journey and I provide a laid back and relatable approach to both counseling and supervision.
With almost 10 years of experiences, I have worked with diverse clients in multiple settings and levels of treatment. While I am available and able to work with all clients from diverse backgrounds, I specialize in working with depression and other mood disorders with men. I understand how difficult it can be for men to manage their emotions and unresolved issues in a world that sees emotions as weakness and expects them to constantly meet societal standards of being strong. EMOTIONS DO NOT MAKE YOU WEAK!
My approach to therapy is rooted in Gestalt and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This approach allows for an eclectic use of techniques catered to you. I am sensitive to your needs and will work to ensure that everything you want to achieve will be the focal point of our journey together. Together we can work to understand and work through long standing behavior patterns and negative perceptions that may be impacting your life now. This takes a commitment as well as challenging yourself at times, but you are not alone.
I currently only accept self-pay clients at an affordable rate that includes a sliding scale if needed. I am also available some evenings and weekends as well. So, if you have read this and feel we may be a good match for counseling or supervision, call or email to schedule a consultation today!
*SUPERVISION* I am also a counselor educator licensed to provide clinical supervision for LCMHCA, LCASA and CSAC clinicians in North Carolina. My goals for supervision are to assist the supervisee with developing skills, provide more knowledge and understanding of the counseling process and client conceptualization, and assist them with developing their own identity as a counselor. My role as the supervisor is to ensure we have a strong supervisory relationship, assess skills, and challenge through self-reflection and exploration of the skills used in sessions. I offer virtual supervision which allows for me to expand my services beyond the Charlotte area if needed. I offer individual supervision at $55 an hour.
