Demire Coffin-Williams

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in the state of New York. I operate from several treatment models including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Solution Focused Therapy and Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT). I Received my Masters Degree in Clinical Counseling and chose to obtain an additional specialty in Sexual Orientation. I am able to work with individuals and couples/relationships including straight, LGBTQ+, monogamous and polyamorous for a wide range of emotional and behavioral concerns. Philosophically i incorporate aspects of the recovery model, Holism, and wellness (as opposed to illness) which helps with goal setting for their own lives and functioning. Further, I believe that people are not defined by their mental illness or diagnosis and I work hard to help those I work with find the freedom they need to have the life they want. I have experience working with individuals who suffer from depression, Anxiety and phobias, addiction/substance abuse, bipolar disorders, schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders, trauma, personality disorders, recovering from infidelity, sexual functioning concerns (all gender identifications) as well as those considering gender affirming surgery. Most people come to me with concerns in the following areas:

Addictions
LGBT+ / Identity Issues
Intimacy-related issues
Depression

I also have experience in Stress, Anxiety, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder

Utilize CBT, DBT, ACT, solution focused counseling, the Hakomi method, and REBT with couples. Also use mixed methods as appropriate (might utilize narrative techniques to explore the presence of values etc.)
