At Magill Counseling Associates,
we are passionate about helping you
find the freedom to live the life you want.
Sometimes our romantic relationships encounter rough patches, when our expectations of “happily ever after” do not align. Couples counseling provides a safe space where to identify the root causes of issues or dysfunction, and work together on a shared vision of the relationship both partners want to achieve.
Through counseling, couples can learn how previous relationships impact their current relationship, and how to effectively communicate their needs and desires in healthy, productive ways.
Life as a family brings with it both incredible joy - and sometimes relational challenges. When an ongoing concern between parents and their child arises, all parties may grow frustrated and uncertain how to resolve conflicts. Family counseling provides a safe space for the family to discuss concerning behaviors, identify the impact those actions have on the family unit, and find productive ways to move forward.
Anger is a powerful emotion that, if left unchecked, can drive us to make decisions we later regret. We offer a court and employer accepted anger management program that provides understanding about anger, practical skills to manage anger in the moment, ways to interrupt the cycle, and support to implement new concepts and skills.
The program is eight sessions and begins with three individual appointments that identify the situation(s) leading to counseling, as well as education about triggers and coping skills. The remaining five consecutive group sessions provide support as you apply that knowledge and new skills into your daily life.
In our anger management program, you’ll cover topics such as:
We offer a thorough assessment for those required by a court to seek anger management, dual diagnosis, and other evaluations. This two-hour assessment includes an in-person interview, multiple screens, and contact with additional sources.
This assessment can be used for:
Results of the assessment will be sent within two weeks from the date of the evaluation to the mandating court/PO/other contact and to you.
DOT-SAP evaluations are, by requirement of the US-DOT, a two-part assessment. Your first meeting includes a comprehensive assessment as well as completion for the DER and MRO that oversaw the drug/alcohol test collection and analysis. Results of this assessment will be sent within two weeks from the evaluation date according to relevant DOT laws and regulations.
Your second evaluation occurs upon completion of treatment recommendations, and verifies that treatment is complete with no further inpatient or outpatient needs, in accordance with DOT-SAP process requirements.
This type of one-on-one counseling provides you with a safe environment to work through life’s challenges. Your first session allows us to talk about what your goals are, get to know you better, and help you determine if we are a good fit for your counseling needs.
Appointments tend to be between 50-60 minutes. During this time, you help direct the discussion to what concerns you, be that an event from your childhood, a frustration from the past week, or fears for the future. We believe that everything is connected, and as patterns emerge in your sessions, we’ll work to address the root of your concerns.
This online support community focuses on helping men in difficult relationships improve their relationships with their partner. Support, education, and skill development are offered to help each member of the group take the initiative and work to repair his relationship.

Counseling can be an incredibly freeing and beneficial experience. Sometimes patients have concerns about being seen entering a counselor’s office, travel extensively and cannot always attend an in-person appointment, have health or mobility concerns, or one of many other reasons. Telehealth, or online counseling, allows patients to seek the guidance they need but on their schedule, in the comfort of their home or office, and as needed. We offer online counseling through Zoom, a robust meeting platform that uses bank-level encryption.
We accept most major insurances as well as self-pay/out of network payment options.
