Happiness Membership with Coaching      Individual Counseling      Substance Abuse Assessments          Busters Workshops

Coaches go by many different titles including Recovery Coach, Life Coach, and Wellness Coach.  The difference between a coach and therapist is that a coach works with you in order to help you clarify goals and identify obstacles and problematic behaviors in order to create action plans to achieve desired results. The process of coaching takes your current status as an acceptable neutral ground, and is focused on moving you forward from that point.  Coaches provide a distinct service that helps you work on your goals for the future and create a new path to a rich, meaningful and happy life.  While the emphasis is on behaviors and goal achievement, as you achieve your goals and improve your health and wellness behaviors, you will naturally become happier, more content and satisfied in your relationships.

I have a strong background in motivational enhancement and behavior modification and approach all coaching whether it is business or health related, from a biopsychosocial perspective.  I will help you become aware of your strengths to capitalize on them, your vulnerabilities to mitigate or prevent them, and your motivators to maintain them. From there you can identify and achieve realistic goals.  Check out some of my videos on our YouTube channel.

uCoaching Membership

Counseling and coaching services can cost on average $65/hour, and most people have to pay out of pocket because their insurance deductibles are so high, or they do not have coverage.  $260/month is a lot of money for most people.   A membership at will allow you to access Dr. Snipes for coaching services via live, interactive video-based group for as little as $25/month.  These groups will help you set and achieve your goals for health and happiness, increase and maintain your motivation and provide you information about tools you can use to be more effective.  If you think you need a little bit more help, the Plus package lets you chat via text message with Doc Snipes 7 days a week from 3pm-8pm EST.  This can help you apply what you learned in group and keep you motivated.

Counseling Services

I am licensed in Florida (LMHC #6261) and Tennessee (LPC-MHSP #3001) and can provide “counseling” services to members in those states through secure video conferencing. I believe people are doing the best they can with the tools they have at any point in time. My goal is to help you understand why you might be doing what you are doing, identify solutions you have used in the past, provide suggestions about new tools and develop a plan for change. I use a brief, solution focused, cognitive approach.  To learn more about what that means, please visit my YouTube channel.

Individual Counseling

Substance Abuse (Addiction) Assessment

  • Substance abuse assessments for court or probation cost is $230 and include the report to your PO, attorney or the court.  You MUST bring or email a copy of your criminal history for the assessment.  We will not conduct the assessment without first seeing your criminal history.   Schedule Here

Counseling services are only available to Florida and Tennessee residents.

  • Note: These services are not appropriate for a crisis situation or if you are feeling suicidal or homicidal.  In those cases, contact your local crisis hotline, go to the nearest emergency room or contact local law enforcement to assist you.
  • *Coaching services do not involve the diagnosis or treatment of a mental health disorder.  Instead, you have identified what your presenting issue is and have an idea about how you want to address it, but need some assistance implementing YOUR plan and staying motivated.
  • **Counseling services can only be provided by a therapist who is licensed in the state in which the patient resides, and in the state in which he or she resides if they are different.

Saturday “Busters” Intensive Coaching Workshops

Cost: $180 for Non-Members.     Sign up  Here

These intensive coaching workshops are designed to provide you with knowledge about what causes the particular issue and things that may help make it better, and the skills to identify and tailor tools to work for you.  Kind of like an interactive self-help book.  I will not be diagnosing or treating any issues, but instead helping you identify what happiness looks like to you, what thoughts and behaviors might be keeping you stuck and what tools and strategies will help you move forward.

In this online webinar, you can join from the comfort of your own home!  When you register, you will receive an email with the link to the meeting room.  You will be able to see the presentation and interact with the instructor the whole time.  There will be occasional breaks for you to do activities, so have a notebook and pencil handy.
