At A Step in the Right Direction Intensive Outpatient Treatment Center our commitment is to help individuals recover from alcohol, substance abuse, trauma, and co-occurring disorders so that they may live balanced and productive lives.

I welcome most clients who desire enhanced mental dispositions. I work with toddlers, teens, adults, and seniors. I promote the most positive attitude in my practice and I share all of my talents in hopes of attaining the very best results possible.
I specialize in working with adult individuals who are challenged by a variety of issues including relationship issues, abuse and neglect, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder and bereavement. I have a genuine interest in helping people improve their mental and emotional health to have meaningful and healthy lives and social relationships. We truly are social beings and we all have the natural ability to create and nurture healthy social relationships.
You can overcome the challenges that you face today. Whether you are challenged by depression, anxiety, relationship problems, and/or another emotional health issue; counseling, specifically cognitive behavioral therapy, can help you overcome your mental health issues and transform yourself into the person you hope to become. I, Dr. Mark Sergi, have counseled adults, couples, and elders for over 20 years; helping hundreds of persons improve their emotional health and quality of life.
As a therapist I have a longstanding interest in helping clients heal their psychological issues against the background of their faith orientation. I graduated from Fuller Theological Seminary where integration of faith and psychology is primary and I continue to read a diverse number of classics in spiritual and theological literature. I am an Oblate at St. Andrew's Abbey a Catholic Benedictine Monastery. I have experience with clients from protestant, orthodox, Jewish, Christian and Roman Catholic denominations. I am familiar with issues facing pastors priests and religious. I also run a spiritual growth group on Tuesday nights.
Do you suffer from symptoms of sadness, depression so feel you need help? Do you suffer from worry, nervousness, eating and sleep issues? Do you struggle with excessive worries and find you are nervous often? Did you go through a traumatic event in your life? I use Cognitive Behavior Therapy techniques to help clients going through Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I help women age with power & get stronger through kick-ass mindset and natural health. The onset of menopause & the end of our menstruating years are a bio-psycho-spiritual event. Thus the changes are not just physical. We might experience a loss of identity, lack of meaning & direction, anxiety & confusion. It’s a time in which we question the life we had & wonder what to do with the one before us. We might experience being empty nested, divorce or a stagnant relationship, aging parents, our own physical and emotional changes, and mortality. Midlife is often a tender time of changes & transitions. I know because I've been there.
I believe we each possess the resilience and potential to overcome life's challenges, make difficult changes in our lives, and personally thrive. My role as a therapist is to guide my clients to better understand their inner worlds, improve emotional well-being, and tap into unique resources to access their personal strengths.
In the 20+ years I've been a therapist, I've learned that no two situations are the same. Therefore, I don't profess to have all the answers, but I'm very good at finding answers. I value getting to know people and finding out what has worked and what isn't working and then finding answers together.
Trauma and anxiety do not have to stay with you forever. You are off balance, and it is a struggle to get back into your life's routine. Daily affirmations are not enough. Give voice to your story in a safe and comfortable setting and take steps to eliminate your anxiety, rage and heartache. Utilizing a whole-body approach to treatment we will minimize disruptive blocks & triggers and develop internal and external strategies to help you find freedom from fear and regain your self trust.
Do you wonder why you have a big reaction to the small things in life? Seeking therapy, whether for the first time or the tenth time, takes courage and strength. I have heard from clients that even with cognitive insight they have remained stuck in distressing feelings/situations. I strongly believe that living coping skill to coping skill is not a viable long-term solution. Through personal experience, I have ascertained that knowledge of the root cause to a reaction or behavior is paramount to healing. I will not see you as a compilation of symptoms or a diagnosis, but rather as a person with needs that you are trying to get met.

I assist clients in developing a clinical understanding of their emotions/behaviors in the context of their relationships with others. Assisting clients to understand the connection between their thoughts, feelings and responses helps them gain control over themselves and their environment. When life happens, and we are in the midst of chaos, our brain gets stuck and begins to believe that there are no options available; but sometimes we need a push, an emotional support, or just someone to talk to, to help us un-knot the chaos in our mind.Life skills are essential problem-solving behaviors that we need to manage our lives properly.
