My greatest wish in life is to be able to help make a difference in the world; counseling is my way. I have confronted a variety of issues, and work well with complex conditions. Some include depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder, self-esteem, bullying, family conflict, ADHD, defiant behaviors, anger management, and attachment concerns. My work also extends to parental support in working with their children / adolescents more effectively in communication, discipline and affection. My main desire is for all clients to know they are not alone and help them on their journey. I will adapt to meet your needs.

I work from a model that best suits the individual (person-centered), but also integrate aspects of other models as they seem fitting. I utilize the best method to address the unique needs of each individual I see. Hopefully I can help you!

I offer group therapy. I have a music therapy group for adolescents, an art therapy group for adolescents and adults, and a mental healthy recovery/support group that are all open to join at any time. I also have a parenting support group, inquire for more information.

Adam Lawrence Maldonado's Groups

Soundtrack of Our Lives (Therapy with Music)

An adolescent therapy group meeting weekly on Mondays from 5-6:30PM with an emphasis on music as a therapeutic tool. Members will present a song every week that connects with various emotional states, enhancing self-awareness and emotional understanding. An additional benefit of this design will be the development of a peer support group for each adolescent. Each group member will effectively learn how to use music therapeutically as a coping strategy to accompany other resources / interventions. The group is continual and can be joined at any time. Insurance is accepted or $10/week out of pocket.

Facing the Storm (Therapy with Mindfulness & Art)

A group open to both teens and adults that meets Saturdays at 3 P.M. and usually lasts for an hour. It is open to be joined anytime. The emphasis is on both mindfulness (being more present in the here and now of life) and creativity. Each week members can expect to engage in a project that offers insight into emotions, awareness, and facilitates some aspect of mindfulness. Projects include: drawings, paintings, photography, collages, crafts and more. Members are given a chance to share and explain their work in a supportive group. Insurance accepted or $20/week out of pocket.
