ERNEST A. McCOY, Ed.S., LCSW, MSWAC

Ernest A. McCoy has an Ed.S. in Psychological Counseling, an MSW in Psychiatric Social Work, and over 30 years’ experience as a therapist. A Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Substance Abuse Counselor, he is also a consultant and trainer for the Gestalt Educational International Network in Frankfurt, Germany. He specializes in adolescent issues, alcohol and other drug addictions, separation and individuation issues, attention deficit, Asperger’s disorder, oppositional defiance, multicultural issues, and basic family issues. He works with adults, adolescents, couples, and families.

Drawing on his training in Gestalt psychotherapy and EMDR, McCoy takes the approach that therapy is a type of personal growth. By helping his clients examine what they are doing to themselves and what they are doing to others, he helps them learn how to take better care of themselves, how to be kinder to themselves and, as a consequence, kinder to others. “We all have strengths and limitations,” McCoy says. “What may be a limitation in one situation may actually be a strength in another situation and vice versa.”

The basic goal of Ernest’s approach is to assist you in learning to ” Be Good to Yourself!”
