Lifecare Wellness Counseling

Lifecare Wellness Counseling is a Psychotherapy practice located in downtown Tuscaloosa, AL. We are committed to serving the people in our community. We are wholly open to accepting all individuals as well as their pursuit of wellness. We work persistently and intentionally to foster an environment conducive to emotional and social development which means it must also be a welcoming environment respectful of the diversity of backgrounds and appreciative of the richness in the variety of perspectives.

We Are Here to Help.

We’re here to help ease the fear of reaching out for help when you need it most. We are committed to serving as a collaborator and guide throughout your counseling journey while providing you with a confidential, nonjudgmental space to process and grow.

We offer individual, couples, group, and family counseling for a wide range of issues including anxiety/depression, mood disorders, ADD/ADHD, grief/loss, trauma, and relational conflict. Our services include eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), play therapy, art therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, computerized ADD/ADHD testing, and pediatric autism genetic testing.
