I specialize in treating adults and seniors with behavioral and psychiatric issues. My clinical expertise includes working with those who suffer from depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, grief, and loss.

I enjoy creating a safe space environment where my clients can feel welcomed and heard. I want you to share your concerns, thoughts, and feelings with me without fear of judgement.

Cynthia Taylor

BS, MA – Counselor 1
Provides SUD outpatient and TSF services

 

I have been professionally treating children and adolescents with behavioral health and substance abuse issues for more than five years. I enjoy helping all people no matter their age, gender, or sexual preference. I specialize in treating those who suffer from addiction and support those to stay in recovery.

I have experience working as a Licensed Addiction Counselor in two High School Wellness Centers in Delaware, and as a Beverage Supervisor. A client can expect me to be empathetic, honest and a good listener. He or she can expect me not to be judgmental but understanding. I will work with you where you are currently at on your journey to become sober. We will both learn a lot from one another. I take life one-day-at-a-time and will remind you to do the same, as well. There is no magic pill in recovery, but I have faith that we can all recover when we put in the work required. Recovery is a lifetime process, and I will help you on your way to recovery. No one is perfect, and we all may be in need of help at some point in our lives for different reasons. You are not alone.

Depending on which therapy is right for you, I provide both Group Therapy and/or Individualized Therapy (one-on-one).

I earned my Bachelor of Arts and a master’s degree in human services counseling, with a specialty in Addictions and Recovery at Liberty University. Additionally, I am certified as a Child Advocate Stewards of Children.

More about me: I love spending time with my family and friends — especially my two-year-old granddaughter. I love visiting my sister in Florida when the weather is cold in Delaware. I love the warmer weather! I like riding to the beach or walking on the Boardwalk. Sometimes you can find me singing Karaoke and busting a move.

Deyadira "Dee" Carillo,

BSW-CLINICAL THERAPIST
Provide mental health outpatient, SUD outpatient, and TSF services.

I have been professionally treating individuals who have experienced trauma (domestic violence, physical, mental and sexual abuse), childhood traumas, and/or those diagnosed with a substance
abuse disorder for more than four years. I especially enjoy working and treating individuals who
might suffer from low self-esteem and depression.

My area of specialization includes: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Informed Care, Domestic Violence, Cognitive Processing Therapy to address trauma and PTSD, Motivational Enhancement Therapy, Contingency Management Approach, Anger Management and working experience with symptoms of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem/worthlessness, Bipolar and Borderline Personality disorder.

I enjoy putting together safe and family friendly events for clients, their families, and the community. I want you to develop team-building skills, find your creativity, and have some fun while we get down to your mental health business. I regularly volunteer with the Food Bank of DE to provide food packages to patients who are in need of food, resources during the holidays, and the soup kitchen to provide soup during dosing hours at the facility.

My clients can expect to receive person-centered treatment, utilizing a holistic approach. By providing support that looks at the whole person, not just their mental health needs — you can expect support that will address your physical, emotional, social and spiritual wellbeing. For example, if an individual is in need of transportation or housing, I will work with them to figure out resources and help them obtain the services they need. I will help you to identify your strengths, needs, abilities and preferences in treatment. We will then develop a treatment plan with goals, methods and interventions that are measurable to help you achieve your goals. I will meet you where you are in your recovery and help you address any barriers that are affecting your treatment in order to be successful.

Depending on which therapy is right for you, I run both Group Therapy and/or Individualized Therapy (one-on-one).

I earned my Associates of Science in Criminal Justice at Delaware Technical Community College in Georgetown DE, and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at Wesley College in Dover, DE.

Some fun facts about me: I am Mexican-American and speak English and Spanish fluently. I enjoy traveling, going to the beach, long boarding, fishing and spending time with family. I have traveled to several states in the U.S., but I have also traveled out of the country to Mexico, Madrid and Barcelona in Spain, Rome in Italy, Santorini, Mykonos, and Tinos Island in Greece.
