Laurie Lawrenz (Sheboygan, United States) Provider
Our Domestic Batterer Intervention Program is court approved and our agency is a member of the Wisconsin Batterers Treatment Providers Association.
We offer counseling services for male and female perpetrators of domestic abuse. We are a GLBT friendly agency. We offer couples counseling (female/male, male/male, female/female) for relationship issues. PLEASE NOTE: We DO NOT counsel couples in a domestic abuse relationship until after the perpetrator and victim have completed individual counseling services.
We offer individual psychotherapy counseling services for just about any issue that a client is experiencing. We offer dual diagnosis alcohol and drug abuse counseling.
All counseling services are administered by a Masters level or higher mental health counselor. Our counselors believe education and research are an important part of understanding client issues so we frequently attend conferences and seminars to stay attune with new developments in the world of mental health counseling.
Services or Research Projects
We are currently developing programs to incorporate social services into our agency practice. Some up coming projects include client food pantry and personal care item pantries and a needle exchange program to help address the sweeping heroin addiction problem in our communities.
