Hello my name is Brad Hays. Thank you for your interest in allowing us to meet your needs.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I graduated from the Ashland University in Ashland Ohio with a master’s degree in counseling. I have 25 years of counseling experience. I specialize in victims of abuse and sexual trauma. I also provide theologically based counseling for those that desire a spiritual or Biblical perspective. I also specialize in anger management in both individual and group settings. I work with most age groups. I also enjoy working with teenagers from age 15 and up. My experience has also included working with clients to address a variety of mental health issues, including depression, mood disorders, trauma and PTSD, anxiety, substance abuse, life adjustment changes, divorce, couples counseling and grief
My skill set includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and client-centered approaches. My focus is to help individuals and families achieve their life goals and the level of overall functioning that they desire to achieve.
I utilize a down to earth straight forward approach. I am a strong advocate for importance of the counselor and client relationship. I strive to provide and develop a safe, judgment free atmosphere, which helps a person confront their challenges from the past and modify those experiences into a new beginning and acceptance of their life circumstances.
