  • Understand and identify the life problems or events that contribute to these conditions

  • Learn healthy coping techniques and problem-solving skills

By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, our therapists help change long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding individuals back from experiencing a more fulfilling life.

Individual Counseling

Individual Counseling can be helpful for a wide variety of Psychological Problems including depression, anxiety, alcoholism, and other addictions, eating disorders, traumatic life events and PTSD as well as for life events such as divorce, death in the family, career transitions, and changes in life circumstances. 

In addition to psychotherapy, our therapists teach meditation techniques and helps clients make needed lifestyle changes such as establishing healthy eating and exercise routines.

Spiritual issues can also be addressed. 

Family Counseling

Family Counseling is often helpful when there is a child or an adolescent who is having a problem and can also help when a family member is struggling with addiction. Family Counseling can include any combination of family members being present during a session. A child can be seen alone and at other times with one or both parents. The entire family can be seen together and parents can work together on parenting issues. 

We can help with a wide variety of problems including children’s behavior problems, depression, anxiety, addiction, eating disorders and a range of other problems. Since the individual with the symptoms is imbedded in a family system, working with the entire family can be a highly effective means of relieving symptoms and resolving problems.


Group Counseling

Group therapy can be highly effective and can even provide many benefits that individual therapy cannot. Depending on the nature of your concern, group therapy may be the ideal choice for receiving support and working toward change.


New Beginnings Therapy Services offers a variety of therapy groups. Some are more unstructured and members share and explore their feelings and perceptions, while others are structured and more focused on learning or developing new skills. Depending on the particular group, it may contain anywhere from four to twelve members and either one or two therapists.


In therapy groups, the emphasis is on change: changing problematic behaviors, attitudes, and emotions. Participants explore personal problems and concerns with a group of persons who have had similar experiences. Discussion includes both present issues and troubling past events, along with the negative consequences of those events. Therapy groups are safe, confidential, and supportive environments to work through problems, heal old hurts, express emotions, learn more about yourself, receive feedback on how others perceive you, and acquire more effective interpersonal behaviors.


In psychoeducational groups, the emphasis is on education and skill development. Participants engage in semi-structured discussions and exercises, role-play, and giving and receiving feedback, with the group leader functioning as a teacher, trainer, and facilitator. The focus is on acquiring information, learning new skills, and refining existing skills pertaining to a specific topic. Psychoeducational groups usually meet weekly for four-to-eight weeks, depending on the topic.


Psychiatric Medication Management 

Many psychiatric disorders will require a two-pronged approach for successful treatment: medication combined with therapy or counseling. A psychiatric practitioner can prescribe medication to help with anything from sleep problems to anxiety to depression. Medication management is a vital part of this equation, as not all medications will be received or tolerated by patients in the same way.

That’s why monitoring medications, their side effects and their possible interactions with other medications is critical. A big part of what psychiatric practitioners do is provide psychiatric medication management and assessment. This can seem pretty scary, especially if you’ve never taken such medications before or have taken them before but experienced bad side effects.

There can certainly be a lot of unknowns; however, understanding how a psychiatric practitioner can help you and truly knowing what medication management means is key to feeling comfortable and at ease with the recommended treatment plan.

Because our mental well-being is directly connected to our overall physical health, stress and trauma can leave us feeling anxious, hopeless and overwhelmed. When these feelings go untreated for long periods of time, major psychological and physical illnesses can result. In addition, associated behaviors can become addictive and destructive.

That’s why it’s equally as important to have regular physicals and checkups from your primary care physician. The other part of the equation is to get regular mental health checkups too.

When you first see our psychiatric practitioner, they will perform an initial checkup called an assessment, which will include an overview of your symptoms and collection of your medical history. A determination will then be made about whether or not medication is a viable option for treating your particular mental health disorder.

Based on this assessment, our psychiatric practitioner will then make a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan designed with your specific needs in mind. The decision is ultimately up to the patient. If it is decided to move forward with this option, various medications, possible side effects, and proper dosages will be discussed.

Initially, the medication will be prescribed for a trial period to observe and monitor its effectiveness. This is where the “medication management” portion of psychiatric care comes into play. If the treatment is meeting the patient’s goals, the patient will be advised to keep moving forward. However, different medications affect brain chemistry in difference ways, so not everyone will respond well to a particular prescription.

This may result in side effects like inability to sleep, irritability, nausea and more. In those cases, a different medication will be prescribed. This is often a trial-and-error process that should eventually result in the right medication for you.

In addition to medication, other forms of treatment such as counseling, life management skills, and behavioral therapies may be offered in conjunction. Our psychiatric practitioner will carefully monitor all of these components to ensure the best blend for the patient’s mental health.

It’s important to note that not all patients and not all psychiatric problems require medicine. However, there are many instances where prescription medicines are the best way to relieve symptoms for the patient.










Medication can be an effective part of the treatment of many mental illnesses such as:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Bipolar disorder

  • Panic

  • Sleep problems

  • Schizophrenia

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) Program

Evidence based medication-assisted treatment

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is an opioid addiction treatment approach that combines behavioral counseling with stabilizing medication (Suboxone) from our doctors in Princeton, WV. It is not a prescription for medication alone. Instead, the focus is on counseling through individualized custom patient care under the guidance of a medical doctor who addresses the cravings and withdrawal symptoms of the patient.


The most effective treatment programs is one that combines medication with a range of other services such as medical, behavioral and social counseling in order to provide long-lasting, positive results for the patient.


 Medication Assisted Treatment is a low-cost option when compared to the high cost of continued illegal drug use, inpatient or residential treatment, or the high relapse rates associated with programs that do not work for the individual.


One of the strong advantages of Medication-Assisted Treatment is that the individual learns to recover and heal without the requirement to leave work, family or social obligations while under a doctor's care. The added benefit of participating in treatment while continuing regular life activities is that the patient learns to work within their current environment, addressing changes that need to occur within their present circumstances. By contrast, patients that are removed from their environment for treatment must still learn how to cope and properly respond to stimuli associated with past behavior.

Play Therapy

We offer play therapy services for children ages 3-10 and "talk therapy" for youth ages 11-17. We work with mood disorders, anxiety, behavior and developmental disorders, Attention Deficit Disorder (including assessment), Autism Spectrum Disorder, self-injury, low self-esteem, truancy and school avoidance, poor academic performance, bullying issues, communication and social skill deficits, emotion management, issues associated with foster care placement and/or adoption,  life adjustments, and trauma experiences.

Play therapy is interactive and involves toys, board/card games, puppets, toy doll house/toy castle, etc. and the expressive arts (e.g., sand tray, art/paint, music). 

Play therapy looks like play, but children communicate and express their thoughts and emotions naturally through play. Play therapy fosters learning and acceptable behaviors and promotes creative thinking. The child or adolescent leads the session where he or she is in control of the choices made, therefore providing a sense of empowerment and self-autonomy. There may be times when directives are provided to build insight and self-awareness towards identified and specialized goals. 

This practice DOES NOT offer Custody or Parenting Evaluations, or participate in court proceedings.

Peer Recovery Support Specialist Services

Who Are Peer Workers?
Peer support workers are people who have been successful in the recovery process who help others experiencing similar situations. Through shared understanding, respect, and
mutual empowerment, peer support workers help people become and stay engaged in the recovery process and reduce the likelihood of relapse. Peer support services can
effectively extend the reach of treatment beyond the clinical setting into the everyday environment of those seeking a successful, sustained recovery process. 


Bringing Recovery Supports to Scale Technical Assistance Center Strategy (BRSS TACS) is enriched by the lived experiences of people in recovery, who play key roles in BRSS TACS project leadership, development, and implementation.

Support Group

Peer Support Role
Peer support workers engage in a wide range of activities.

These include:

  • ​Advocating for people in recovery

  • Sharing resources and building skills

  • Building community and relationships

  • Leading recovery groups

  • Mentoring and setting goals

Peer support roles may also extend to the following:

  • Providing services and/or training

  • Supervising other peer workers

  • Developing resources

  • Administering programs or agencies

  • Educating the public and policymakers

Peer support workers may need to develop additional core competencies to provide services to specific groups who also share common experiences, such as family members. The shared experience of being in recovery from a mental health and/or substance use condition or being a family member is the foundation on which the peer recovery support
relationship is built in the behavioral health arena.
