My Approach to Helping
Congratulations! You've taken the first step in creating your New Life! I'm here to help you on that journey. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor in Winston Salem, North Carolina. At New Life Counseling Center, PLLC, we offer individual, group, couples, and family counseling and we work with a wide variety of clients. Other therapists in my practice specialize in Twenty-Somethings, and LGBTQ issues.
As the owner/founder, I offer a free brief screening, so that I have a general understanding of who you are, where you are in life, and where you'd like to be. This helps to assess who you might fit with best in the practice. As a therapist, we might also do some looking backward, to develop an understanding of how you came to this place in life. Sometimes that is needed, but not always. If so, while we know that we can't change the past, there are ways to put some of those past experiences to rest. Together we will develop a plan to close the gap between where you are and where you would like to be. We will custom design your therapy by focusing on solutions; looking at how your thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors might be getting in the way of living the life you want. We will also consider what "things" in your life you might want to change to help bring you closer to your ideal life! I think you will find this collaborative approach very empowering as you discover that you have a lot more internal strengths and resources than you ever imagined. It is journey worth taking, and it all begins with that first step...so call me today for your free initial screening.
More Info About My Practice
The therapeutic relationship between us is one of the most important aspects of your therapy, so it's important that you find someone you can trust and feel at ease with. That's why I took extra care in selecting the location for my counseling practice. It's located in a large office building (but not TOO LARGE), where there is plenty of free, off-street parking. There are many different types of businesses so that your privacy and anonymity is respected. My office is conveniently located off of Stratford Rd. at 3410 Healy Dr., Suite 207. The building is fully handicapped accessible, with an elevator for your convenience.
I bill all major insurance providers. In network provider for: AETNA, Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS), and CIGNA. If you have a different type of insurance, I'll happily bill them for you on an out of network basis. You may or may not have out of network benefits.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
My areas of expertise include children, teens, women's issues, mood and anxiety disorders, substance abuse, behavior problems, and sexual trauma, among others. As I mentioned, I work with a wide array of issues and people from various backgrounds. For example: I have extensive experience working with children and teens who are having problems at home, at work, or at school. The teen years can be very turbulent times. I'll work with you and your teen to get family life back on track. I work with couples and families who are dealing with extended absences of one of the partners, infidelity, and/or considering divorce. I also work with families of divorce who are having a hard time adjusting to all of the changes. If you are a veteran experiencing difficulty reintegrating the family, I am here to share my insight and skills so that you can be a fully functioning "unit" again. I offer a veterans discount as my way of saying "Thanks so much for your service and sacrifice!"
