Bradford A MarkowitzMA, LPC
As a clinician who specializes in men’s issues, I am a focused, engaged and passionate helper. I work with my clients to explore self-defeating thoughts that contribute to their life challenges, with the intent of achieving a more balanced (and “fair”) interpretation of themselves and their surroundings. As a classically trained cognitive behavioral therapist, I am a firm believer in the notion that our past troubles and traumas play themselves out in our adult lives.
I have a strong comprehension of the challenges that disrupt young and mature adult men and their families, as well as the impact that such challenges place on their family systems. I find it particularly inspiring to work with men who are interested in exploring and improving themselves and their relationships.
My approach works particularly well with men and families who wish to achieve insight and relief from challenging dynamics, cognitions and behaviors that result in compromised relationships.

In our society, we tend to see asking for help as a weakness. I completely disagree with this as I feel that asking for help is difficult and, therefore, a very brave thing to do. I have over 10 years of experience as a therapist. I love my work and feel passionate about helping people become their best selves. I have experience working with a variety of issues including trauma, general mental health, and substance abuse. My goal is help people heal and learn from the past while making changes in the present in order to live healthier and happier.

People seek therapy for a variety of reasons. My passion lies with helping to define those reasons and naturally surface solutions that we will explore together. I specialize in treating anxiety and have extensive experience working with those who suffer from chronic illness and who are grieving due to the loss of a loved one.
I promote an especially empathetic and genuine style of therapy and always emphasize a genuine honest and down-to -earth relationship. Starting therapy can be intimidating and down right difficult at times. I am committed to building a safe and trusting working relationship with each and every client.
Within this warm and non judgmental environment we will identify what may be preventing you from maximizing your potential and creating a more full-filling life. We can work together to identify your goals, reduce your anxiety and take a practical approach to effective healing.

Michael W. BaconMA, LPC
I work with individuals using a “Person Centered” approach to treatment that seeks to identify strengths and meet each individual where they are. I believe we are able to work through and understand our own needs in our own way, so that we can better understand our story within the context of our lives to enact positive change. I work with adults, adolescents, and couples. I have experience working with Depression, anxiety, PTSD, various serious persistent mental illnesses, and developing social skills and boundary setting skills in interpersonal relationships.
I also utilize a lot of Cognitive behavioral therapy techniques as a part of my practice to better understand the connections between thoughts, feelings and behaviors, and the role they have in our everyday lives. As a part of my approach I find it essential to use a trauma informed approach to help account for and understand how trauma affects our lives.

I am a master’s level social work intern supervised by Bradford Markowitz joining the practice for the academic year 2019/20. I have over a decade of experience in my social work practice. I specialize in working with children, adolescents and their families in a residential treatment setting in the mental health and intellectual disability systems. Through this I also have experience navigating other systems, including child welfare and juvenile justice.
I am excited about expanding my clinical experience further, following my internship last year at the WCU community mental health clinic. I worked with college students and community members on a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, challenges adjusting to life transitions, overall stress with the college experience and navigating ways to achieve wellbeing and mindfulness.
I have a collaborative and non-judgmental approach to treatment. Leading from a strengths-based perspective, incorporating various therapeutic approaches such as systemic, intersectional and behavioral, I will personalize and tailor the approach based on your specific needs.
I believe that you are the expert in your own life, and through our work together, you can develop a plan that will move you towards achieving your goals.
