Dedra Gregory, LCMHC
Hello and thank you for the opportunity to serve you. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in North Carolina , with over 11 years of experience in Rehabilitation Counseling and 4 years of experience in mental health therapy. My goal in every therapy session is to help you become "fully functioning" in whatever form that looks like for you. I truly believe that we are all equipped with the tools to allow us to thrive and be successful, we just all need a little help in learning to utilize those tools. I whole-heartedly believe in Psychological Flexibility. Throughout life, we will all be thrown a few curveballs. Being equipped with the tools and skills that gives us the ability to adapt to life changes or cope with difficult life events can greatly change our quality of life. For that reason, I encourage all individuals to set the pace of their time in counseling. We will always have clear goals and then we will work together to allow you to learn what is needed to reach your personal goals. This will allow you to continuing to utilize skills learned during therapy long after counseling is done.
I have experience in therapy with adolescents and adults and I have worked with individuals with a wide range of mental health disorders, from varying ethnic backgrounds. I am also experienced in the areas of anxiety, depression, career difficulties and various issues with people with disabilities. My theoretical approach to counseling is interactive in style and based on the cognitive behavioral therapy model.
Most sessions will focus on self-awareness, choice, problem solving, and setting goals for the present and future. Outside of session, there may be homework assignments such as journal writing, reading, art or other methods of self-discovery and expression.
I currently offer live chat sessions during the day and live video and phone sessions at night. If there is a specific time you would like to meet that isn't open on my calendar. Please let me know as my schedule is flexible and I am open to accommodating your availability.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, Family conflicts, Parenting issues, Anger management, Coaching
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy
