BRAD SINGLETARY, LCSW

Therapist and Life Coach in Henderson, NV

LIFE WAS MEANT TO

be enjoyed.

YOU WANT TO FEEL GOOD

 

To feel inspired.

To feel loved.

To be making progress.

To heal.

To be at peace.

but maybe you aren’t feeling this way?

Maybe you feel that life is pulling you down and the obstacles in your way are unmanageable. Maybe the things you’ve tried just aren’t working. Maybe there is no one in your life who will just listen to your feelings and validate what you are experiencing. Perhaps your relationship is stuck in an endless and hopeless pattern but there is more worth hanging on for and you want to fight to make it work. Frustration, anger, irritability. You can’t sleep or you’re sleeping all the time. Drugs, alcohol, gambling, or pornography are ruling your life and you’ve lost your freedom. You’ve lost someone important to you. Everything’s in chaotic disarray. Or maybe life is going fairly well and you just have a few things to work on.

Just Put Some Jam on It: Music — Feeling Is Healing

What I Do
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been counseling with individuals and families for almost two decades. For six years I taught graduate-level marriage and family therapy courses at America’s largest university and also supervised a counseling skills center. My experience began in 1998 where I worked with delinquent youth and their families in Northern Utah.
Maybe you don’t need psychotherapy and don’t have a mental illness.  Maybe you just need help making a difficult decision. Maybe you don’t want mental health treatment and just need help defining and reaching personal or professional outcomes that are important to you.  Maybe your habits are keeping you from the goals you are seeking. Let me help you find your way through the obstacles holding you back.
I am an internship supervisor for the Nevada Board of Examiners for Social Workers and provide supervision for clinical social work interns at the rate of $80 per hour of supervision as a way of giving back to my profession. I am currently full and cannot accept any new interns.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?

I charge $120 per session which can be paid by cash or check as well as debit and major credit cards. I usually collect the session fee in the beginning of each session to get receipts and other paperwork completed before we begin. If you’d like to apply for a reimbursement through your health insurance company, I am happy to provide you a superbill so that you can do so.

Do you take insurance?

Beginning 9/1/18, I will no longer be accepting new clients who need to use insurance.  My practice is now strictly self-pay or out-of-pocket.  I have been forced to operate this way due to the growing complexity and difficulty in working with health plans. 

How long are the sessions?

Generally, therapy sessions are 45-55 minutes.

How often do I see you?
In most cases, I meet with people weekly, but other arrangements can be made based on your needs. If you need more intensive care due to a crisis of some kind, I can meet with you more than once per week. If scheduling or payment is an issue, we can meet every other week or twice a month.
Do you work with couples?
Yes, I prefer to work with you and your significant other, even when the relationship isn’t the main concern for counseling.
What does LCSW mean?
Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) – Masters in Social Work required, plus supervised experience. Most therapists have a master’s level education. At the master’s level, social workers typically have the broadest scope of practice which allows me to treat every psychiatric condition.
Do you prescribe medication?
I do not have medical training and cannot prescribe medication. If the need for medication arises, I can refer you to a psychiatrist and will consult with them regularly about your progress, with your written consent.
Are our conversations confidential?
Yes. I am bound by law to keep the information you share confidential, including the very fact that I am seeing you. Even if you disclose you have committed crimes, it stays with me. There are limits to confidentiality which include threats of harm to yourself or others and reports of abuse or neglect of children, the elderly or otherwise vulnerable populations. A court order would require me to share the requested information with the courts, but in 19 years in the field, I have never had such occur.
