About Darcie Evans Counseling Services:
Darcie Evans Counseling Services, LLC is a private psychotherapy practice in Nantucket, MA. Using specific clinical techniques & personal coaching strategies, Darcie is committed to treating the whole person. Clinical techniques include cognitive behavioral therapies (changing negative thoughts & unhealthy behaviors) as well as psychodynamic and hypnotherapeutic tools to explore deeper childhood conditioning & negative core beliefs.
Darcie treats adults (18 years and older), couples, and families.
These sessions are meant for clients who might be in the midst of a crisis or behavioral health challenge that is causing significant distress such as:
- Adjustment disorders
- Mood disorders
- Anxiety disorders and phobias
- Substance Use Disorders
- Adult ADD/ADHD
- Body image issues and disordered eating
- Chronic back pain and other somatic disorders
- Significant relational problems
Darcie uses a bio-psycho-social lens to view multiple aspects of a client’s life. In other words, she gathers information about each client’s individual and family histories in the specific areas of medical, psychological, social, educational, and spiritual experiences. In addition, she gathers information about any drug, alcohol or other substance use with compassion and non-judgment. Darcie collects this information for the sole purpose of better understanding each client. Once a full assessment is completed, Darcie uses a variety of cognitive, behavioral, psychodynamic and hypnotherapeutic techniques to help each person heal.
COGNITIVE TECHNIQUES & BEHAVIORAL TOOLS:
The cognitive techniques are used to address the person’s inner thoughts, while behavioral tools are geared toward helping each person change unhealthy behaviors and habits. The focus of psychodynamic techniques is on each client’s childhood. These tools are used to help clients see and better understand any negative core beliefs or conditioning they may be experiencing. This approach is not about dwelling on or getting stuck in the past. Instead it’s meant to help clients become more aware of patterns that reside in the unconscious mind and then often play out in the form of pesky, unwanted actions or repeating self-destructive patterns.
PERSONAL COACHING SESSIONS:
Personal Coaching is for people who are committed to evolving and growing even after the crisis has passed. Even though their lives are manageable and acceptable, personal coaching clients may want to continue to learn more about their family history or explore and develop their creativity.
Clients can use personal coaching as an opportunity to follow through with hidden desires or dreams through goal setting, encouragement and accountability. Personal coaching is a medium through which clients are encouraged to be open to the possibilities, be brave about beginning, and become resilient and persistent during the process of pursuing their goals.
“Whatever you dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.” – Goethe
