Treatment and Staff
Much like traditional talk therapy, there is no standard duration of treatment at TCS and approaches to recovery vary by client. However, all treatment tracks involve a combination of individual and group therapy and may incorporate couples, marriage and family counseling and support for multicultural issues, spiritual guidance, Christian counseling, psycho-social skills or sports counseling. Treatment methods are person-centered, humanistic and existential therapy coupled with CBT, REBT and Psycho-educational sessions. Introduction to 12-step principles and outside meeting recommendations are given on a case-by-case basis. Clients struggling with co-occurring disorders like generalized anxiety and depression can also find support here.
Dr. Tinsley is an NCC and an LPC with a Master’s degree and a PhD, though some of her training is specifically rooted in Christianity.
TCS offers life skills training for major transitions, identity issues and leadership support. The organization also runs Love and Basketball Ministries, which focuses on providing Christian-based psychological support, social services and leadership training for athletes.
With an intimate setting and spiritually-based ideologies, Transitions Counseling Services is a good fit for its target demographic: young athletes struggling with substance abuse, mental health and other co-occuring disorders. Though rooted in the Christian faith, Dr. Tinsley works employs traditional therapy and well-known evidence-based practices, making it a viable option for a range of clients. With the flexibility and one-on-one attention of a private practice, clients of Transitions Counseling Services will find well-rounded yet specialized outpatient treatment, making it a valuable resource for all residents of Greater Pittsburgh.
