Confidential and compassionate counseling is offered for adult individuals. Each client is unique, and treatment plans are tailored to meet individual needs and goals. Counseling is provided in a safe, caring environment with special attention given to the client's culture and values. We believe clients are the experts on their own lives and see our role as coach and collaborator. We are here to help clients explore their inner world, work through their difficulties, and discover their authentic, peaceful, happy selves. We provide traditional psychotherapy, couples counseling and EMDR therapy.
EMDR Therapy Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a form of therapy that helps people heal from trauma or other distressing life experiences. Through use of alternating eye movements or pulses in the palms, EMDR taps into the brain's natural healing ability to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories. EMDR therapy does not require talking in detail about the distressing issue and can often be completed in fewer sessions than other psychotherapies. EMDR is one of the most researched therapies and is recognized as an effective treatment for PTSD by the American Psychiatric Association, the U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs/Dept. of Defense and the World Health Organization among others. It is the most efficient treatment for trauma. Learn more about EMDR. Session Fees

We offer self-pay appointments and are also in network with BlueCross BlueShield PPO plans and the North Carolina State Health Plan. We will file insurance claims for clients who wish to use their insurance. For those for whom we are out of network, we can provide documentation so that they can file their own insurance claims. Fee for services will be due at the time of service. Payment may be made by credit card or HSA card kept on file or by cash or check if desired. We do not accept insurance for couples counseling as our approach sees "the relationship" as the client, which does not align with the medical model that requires a diagnosis for one of the partners by insurance companies.
