About me

Hi there! I am Brandi Geddings, a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) in North Carolina. I am nationally certified through the National Board of Certified Counselors and am also active in the American Counseling Association (ACA) and the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).

I desire to use my personal and professional skills to relate and meet where you presently are in life. This is done with empathy and curiosity using relaxed and practical methods. I believe strong rapport, nonjudgment, authenticity, and unconditional positive regard are of most importance when developing and maintaining a therapeutic relationship.

My style of counseling involves taking a holistic approach to help you identify strengths within yourself, recognize any negative patterns or concerns, and develop improved thought patterns and coping skills. I tend to be easy going and talk without using a lot of clinical terms while taking a collaborative and equal position with you. I hope to walk alongside you and be supportive, non-judgmental, and open-minded as we navigate difficult areas of life.

With many individuals, I use a strength-based person-centered integrative approach. This is often solution-focused and includes interactive CBT, DBT, techniques, psychoeducation, problem-solving skill-building, family systems, active/reflective listening, mindfulness, existential therapy techniques; with a general approach of holistic wellness (physical, emotional, social, intellectual, spiritual, environmental, occupational). You may also prefer a simple emotional outlet. I am here to listen and provide support for you.

I have worked in an outpatient therapy setting with a diverse population of individuals that include children, adolescents, and adults across the lifespan as well as working across social and class lines. I provide counseling services through individual, family, group, and psychoeducational settings. Some areas of expertise and competence include teen and adolescence, anxiety, depression, trauma, mood disorders, life transition phases, adult ADHD, adjustment/transition, executive functioning, family dynamics, effective communication skills, and self-esteem.

I hope to assist in meeting your personal goals and create practical coping mechanisms to build on. I won't suggest interventions that are complex or that doesn't make sense for your current life. We will work together to create goals that are meaningful and rewarding throughout the therapy process. I always encourage open communication regarding what is helpful and not to ensure a positive therapeutic experience and move forward towards goals.

I cannot wait to meet and begin working with you!!!

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Brandi Geddings . We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Brandi has been a rock for Me in 2020 and continues to prove that moving into therapy was the best idea for my mental health and wellbeing. She is consistent, responds quickly, works on my timeline and needs for topics and discussions. She has insights and comments that really allow me to think without feeling forced or pushed. She is a phenomenal listener and someone who has really added a supportive foundation to my growth through a very tough year.

Written on Dec 23, 2020 after therapy with Brandi for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, grief, parenting issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes
