About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in North Carolina with over 14 years of counseling experience working with clients ages 9 to 65 and older. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, anger, addiction, trauma, grief/loss, relationship/family, self-esteem, and adjustment challenges. I have also worked with clients from various cultures, states, backgrounds, and socio-economic statuses. I have extensive experience in all levels of care in various settings, such as crisis stabilization/inpatient hospital, outpatient/intensive outpatient clinic, women and children residential, home-based, school, church, and correctional/probation settings. I also proudly served our courageous military veterans and their families for several years.

My therapy style is caring, warm, empathetic, and non-judgmental. I believe in treating you with the same utmost respect and compassion as I would display to any of my own personal loved ones. I believe in meeting you where you are, and when you are ready, helping you take the courageous steps to regain control of your life. I believe laughter is good medicine to the soul, so when appropriate, I love to share this gift of joy with you in our sessions.

My therapeutic approach consists of a solid foundation in cognitive-behavioral, client-centered, solution-focused, and rational-emotive therapy, tailoring our sessions and your treatment to meet your unique and specific needs. I also thoroughly enjoy providing Christian counseling to those that request this therapeutic approach, utilizing the Unconditional Love of Christ as the primary foundation in our sessions.

Congratulations on taking this first step toward positive change. It takes courage to ask for help. We all need support at one time or another. I am overly excited to join this part of your journey toward a more fulfilling and happier life. You deserve it!

I look forward to working with you, and I cannot wait to get started! See you soon!

Davida is such a kind and genuine person. I feel understood and appreciated and I look forward to every session. Davida manages to strike the right balance between comforting and challenging, which is so important to me. I’ve already learned a lot and can’t wait to continue on my journey of growth, guided by Davida.

Davida is a Godsend. I’m glad I chose to try therapy and I am so glad I was paired with her. She is so easy to talk to and has a contagious laugh. I have started to make progress and look forward to working with her to resolve all my issues. Thank you Davida!

Davida interacts as a friend but asks me to confront issues at the same time.

Ms. Davida Thompson is a wonderful and kind God fearing counselor. She listen to me and helps me to see myself and the situation I am going through with a different len. In other words, she cleans my lens so I can see clearly and I appreciate myself more. Yes, I would recommend her.

I have had the pleasure of working through my issues with Davida. Since the beginning of our sessions she has been professional and very comforting. I have been able to get a better understanding of my problems and the issues that have been plaguing me for so long.

I know that I am a work in progress and I feel comforted knowing that I am being helped by an individual like Davida.

She is A1 and I would recommend her to anyone.
