“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” ― Leo Buscaglia

How Summerlane Counseling Can Help

Learn about our services below.

Remember… you have the strength to overcome any challenge. Remember to focus on progress, not perfection.


Summerlane offers assessments such as state-approved substance abuse assessment.

The ASAM Criteria is the most widely used and comprehensive set of guidelines for placement, continued stay, and transfer of patients with addiction and co-occurring conditions.

It defines the standards for assessing patients with substance use disorder to determine the type and intensity of treatment needed.

At this time, this service is exclusively offered only via telehealth by phone or Zoom.

Mental Health Counseling

Therapy can help you or your child improve your emotional and psychological well-being. We provide support, guidance, and tools to manage grief, loss, divorce, addiction, and mental health issues such as ADHD, PTSD, anxiety, depression, and trauma. We also offer pre-marital and couples counseling, children’s therapy, substance abuse treatment, anger management, self esteem issues, life adjustments, and career counseling. The ultimate goal is to help individuals manage their symptoms, build resilience, and improve their quality of life.

Specialized Groups

Specialized groups in counseling and therapy refer to groups that focus on specific issues or populations. Examples include addiction, grief, mommy, and teen support groups. The composition and format of these groups can vary, but they typically involve a trained facilitator and a group of individuals who share a common experience or concern. The group setting provides a supportive environment where members can share their experiences, learn from others, and receive guidance and encouragement.

Trainings and Workshops

For Agencies, Educational Institutes, & Organizations​

Summerlane Counseling offers a wide array of community trainings and workshops tailored to meet the learning needs of staff and mental health professionals in agencies, clinics, private group practices, school, hospitals, and community-based organizations. Consulting services are available as well.

Our trainings and workshops are specifically designed to meet the learning needs of staff and can be provided as a one-time event or as a more intensive series of several full or half-day trainings. Our offerings address a variety of specialized clinical themes and issues.


Supervision is a process that involves a trained adult providing guidance and support to learners as they navigate their educational journey.

Supervision is important to ensure that learners receive personalized attention and feedback.

The benefits of supervision include learning how to set and achieve goals and build the necessary skills to become self-directed learners.

Additionally, supervision can provide accountability and ensure that learners are meeting the requirements of their chosen learning path.


Summerlane Counseling offers many events to support our community members and increase the availability of mental services for all.
