My name is Ryan "Ry" Townes. I am a limited licensed professional counselor, with a primary focus on substance use and LGBTQA+ issues. I am a non-binary person of color, and I use he/him or they/them pronouns. It is my goal to help my clients in fostering positive changes in their lives and meeting their long and short term goals.
I work with both adolescents and adults and utilize a mix of Motivational Interviewing skills, CBT, and Solution-Focused modalities to aid clients experiencing a variety of concerns, such as grief and loss, substance use, stress, depression, anxiety, and issues surrounding sexual orientation and gender identity.
