Racine Alequin, LMHC, MCAP, NCC

Want to feel better, more in control, and enjoy life again? Struggling with depression, anxiety, stress, overwhelmed by daily life? Drinking too much or battling other addictions? I am here to help. I am an empathetic, highly trained counselor with 12 years of experience. Therapy gives you a safe place to explore your thoughts and behaviors with a trained, non-judgment professional. I help you learn strategies so you can better deal with your challenges, set goals, and gain new perspectives to lead you to a happier, more fulfilling and productive life. Tried therapy before? Not with me! I help you get results!

I enjoy the challenge of working with those who struggle with depression, anxiety, relationship/co-dependency, substance use disorders (including dual diagnosis), post-traumatic stress/other trauma-related disorders, conduct disorders, and general mental health concerns. I work with adolescents, adults, the LGBTQI community and those with legal issues.

I work collaboratively with my clients to promote healing and resilience. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, a National Certified Counselor, and a Master’s Certified Addiction Professional.

I partner with Advantage’s psychiatrist, nurse practitioners, and TMS program to offer a full range of services, including medication when necessary.
