About me

I would like to share some professional information about myself. I am Christine Mercier, licensed in North Carolina as a clinical social worker and addiction specialist. I believe that entering into a therapeutic relationship is a very special and even sacred agreement to explore with people whatever life situation causes them to seek counseling. I value the qualities of compassion, empathy, and authenticity which, when provided in a safe environment that we create, provides the opportunity for self-exploration and implementation of positive changes. I believe that by assisting people to explore their authentic selves they can develop healthier relationships, increased self-esteem, and reduced feelings of anxiety and depression. During our work together, we may utilize techniques from various therapeutic approaches including mindfulness and Buddhist psychology: applying spiritual principles can often bring peace beyond what psychology alone can offer. Other approaches could include cognitive/behavioral, addiction-process, and motivational therapy. I am also willing to share my 40 years of experience personally and professionally in social work and nursing including my own life experiences if doing so would benefit the client.

Christine Mercier’s patience and understanding is equally balanced out with her ability to give honest and different perspectives to situations. Not once has there been a time where I’ve regretted getting to a session, and I doubt anyone else would either.
