Kristine Lapointe (MA, LPA, LCAS-A)

Megan I am a graduate of the University of North Carolina Wilmington, where I received both my BA in Psychology and MA in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Substance Abuse Treatment. Prior to attending graduate school, I worked at a mental health facility doing administrative work and continued to realize my passion and strong desire to continue pursing my career as a clinician.

While pursuing my MA, I worked part-time at Crossroads where I conducted drug and alcohol interventions with college students. Per the requirements for my MA and license, I completed my internship at Delta Behavioral Health and was subsequently hired upon completing my internship. I primarily work with facility programs conducting DBT skills groups for Partial Hospital Program, Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program, and Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program, providing individual therapy, conducting intake assessments, and conducting crisis interventions. I also provide individual therapy with adults and adolescents for my outpatient practice.

I primarily use Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI) techniques with both adults and adolescents (14 to 17). I recently attended a DBT foundational training through the Behavioral Tech Institute and am currently working towards certification as a foundationally trained DBT clinician. Although I work with individuals with a variety of mental health struggles, my specialties include working with adolescents engaging in risk-taking behaviors, self-harm, suicidal thinking, anxiety and mood disorders and adults with Mood Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Substance Use Disorders, and Borderline Personality Disorders. I am licensed as a Psychological Associate (LPA) and Clinical Addictions Specialist Associate (LCAS-A), as well as certified as a Health Services Provider-PA. I am available for BCBS and self-pay clients.

John McIntyre (LPCA)

johnny MacI am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate with an MA in mental health counseling from Webster University. I also have an MA in humanities from West Virginia State University and enjoyed a lengthy career in the film and television industry before turning my energy toward the path of becoming a therapist. My therapeutic style recognizes the importance of accepting our experiences as well as the power of changing ineffective behavior in the quest to build a worthwhile and satisfying life.

I am a program therapist at Delta specializing in DBT and family therapy. I lead groups in Delta’s Partial Hospital and Intensive Outpatient programs, see individual clients, and work with clients and their families in a clinical setting. I came to DBT with a lengthy history of meditation and mindfulness practice and I encourage and emphasize mindful living as a way to work with emotional pain, relationship conflict, and overwhelming life circumstances. My clinical family work is rooted in improving mindful communication as a means to reducing conflict in relationships.

I currently accept BCBS and self-pay clients.

William J. Holtz (MSEd, LPC)

WilliamI joined Delta Behavioral Health in July 2017. I believe therapy is a cooperative, mutual relationship of respect and acceptance that fosters effective change based on each person’s goals and values.

I received my Masters of Science in Education with a focus in Counseling from Baylor University in Waco, Texas in 1984. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have over 30 years of clinical experience. I also have 12 years of experience in managing mental health/substance use services at the regional and state level. This allows me to be mindful of the interaction of the dynamic and practical aspects of treatment.
I was trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy at Delta Behavioral Health. As a former Marriage and Family Therapist, I received training in family structure, attachment and communication. My clinical experience includes adolescents, adults, families/couples and senior adults who are experiencing mental health, substance use and dual diagnosis populations. I have worked in inpatient, outpatient, partial hospital and administrative settings.

In my current practice I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) or DBT-informed approaches for the treatment of depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, relationship issues, parenting, sexuality and spirituality. I also work with individuals who are dually diagnosed – experiencing both mood and substance use issues. I work primarily with adults in Individual therapy and enjoy working with couples and families.
