About Me

My name is William Karslake

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) as well as a Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist (LCAS).

I first discovered LENS Neurofeedback as a way of getting off of my ADD medication. I soon realized that this life transforming therapy could be helpful to many people in different ways.

I have been working in the Substance Abuse field for the last several years where I spent most of my time running Intensive Outpatient (IOP) groups. I am fortunate enough to have maintained a successful recovery for over 20 years.

My Training

With a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lenoir-Rhyne University, I have the training to help clients work on the issues that (consciously or unconsciously) draw them back to their addiction.

However, my favorite part of counseling is sharing what I have learned through my own recovery process and what I believe are the keys to a successful recovery. This includes learning what the 12 steps are all about, knowing how to get the most out of attending meetings and understanding how and why the spiritual component of recovery is so crucial to a successful long-term recovery.

About LENS

Along with my training and experience, I now offer Low Energy Neurofeedback System (LENS). LENS is a type of neurofeedback that works by breaking up stuck brainwave patterns and resetting our brains to a more flexible, healthy state.

LENS is effective in reducing:

  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Anger and Explosiveness
  • PTSD
  • Substance Abuse

It also helps with Sleep issues, Focus, Concussions, Motivation, Self-Confidence, and Sports Performance.
