Haley McInnis, Counselor (MS, LICSW)
Hi! My name is Haley. I have been a therapist/counselor for 5 years, and I have been working in the mental health field for 9 years.
I decided to start a career in mental health because a therapist saved my life when I was a teenager. I have dedicated my life to helping others in the same way, and I truly believe it is my calling. I will do everything within my ability to help improve your overall mood and quality of life in general.
I am now an EMDR-trained clinician. EMDR can be used to treat a variety of mental health concerns. I also offer traditional talk therapy, and I utilize a number of play therapy techniques.
I have experience in working with adults of all ages and children ages 3 and up. I have worked with clients with a wide variety of presenting problems, including but not limited to: anxiety, depression, trauma, bipolar disorder, substance abuse issues, issues related to attachment, low self-esteem, schizophrenia, schizoaffective, ADHD, OCD, codependency, and gender dysphoria.
I have worked as an Adult Outpatient Therapist at the community mental health center. I conducted sessions with individuals with a variety of mental health issues and varying levels of severity. I also have experience as a Substance Abuse Counselor focusing on recovery from opiate dependency. My initial position as a therapist was in community mental health conducting individual and family sessions for children ages 3 and up, teenagers, and adults of all ages. I have had a wide variety of experiences previous to this at a hospice, an inpatient behavioral health hospital, group home for adults with mental illnesses, a residential facility for boys with behavioral issues, and juvenile probation.
I earned my LICSW in May of 2021. I graduated with a Master of Social Work in 2018 at Alabama A&M University. I graduated with my Bachelor of Social Work in 2015 at University of North Alabama.
I’m excited to work together in order to improve your mental health and your quality of life!
