Here To Help You When Life is Challenging

Often, life presents us with challenges that require help in sorting out solutions to get us back on track. Many people have found that therapy is a tremendous help to managing personal growth, interpersonal relationships, family concerns and the hassles of everyday life. Perhaps you or someone you care about is struggling with life and can use therapy as a means to work on solutions to life’s challenges.

Specialized Mental Health Counseling

At Pattison Professional Counseling and Mediation Center, you will find an accepting, secure place to express your concerns and struggles with a trained and experienced mental health counselor. Our therapists specialize in many areas of mental and emotional health, offering you solutions through:

Mediation Solutions For Dispute Resolution

Here at Pattison, we know that you will encounter conflict at some point in your life. Conflict can take a toll on your well-being and peace of mind. We offer mediation services so that you can air your grievances, resolve your disputes and move on with your life.

The expert and professional mediators at Mediation Solutions (a division of Pattison Professional Counseling and Mediation Center) will help you to resolve family disputes, business disputes, and real estate disputes at a fraction of the cost of traditional litigation.

Parenting Coordination For Resolving Parenting Issues

When you find it difficult to resolve parenting issues with the other parent or legal guardian of your child, especially in a separation or divorce situation, Pattison Professional Counseling and Mediation Center offers you a solution:  parenting coordination.

Our trained and experienced parenting coordinators can help to minimize conflict, aid in resolving disagreements, propose parenting plans and champion the children’s right to access both parents. Parenting coordination promotes collaboration between parents, even in high-conflict situations.

Multiple Locations To Serve You

Pattison Professional Counseling and Mediation Center has offices in Crestview and Fort Walton Beach.  Whether you are located north of the I-10 or south of it, our counseling services are just a short drive from you.

Accepting Over 60 Insurance And EAP Plans

At Pattison, we work with you to ensure that your treatment is covered by your insurance plan, saving you as much out-of-pocket expense as possible. That is why we accept more than 60 different insurance and EAP plans to help you get the mental health treatment you need, from Tri-Care and Military One Source to Blue Cross/Blue Shield and scores of other plans.

If you do not currently have insurance coverage, we offer a sliding-scale fee that makes treatment for you affordable and attainable.
