Evonne Jenkins

(LCSW)

About Me

I am Evonne Jenkins, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed by North Carolina Social Work Licensing Board. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a double major in social work and sociology. I then went on to pursue an advanced standing Masters in Social Work. I am also a proud veteran of the United States Air Force.

I know life gets hard and confusing sometimes. I commend you for taking the first step at doing things a little different so life can get a lot better. Trying to figure this out all on your own is not easy. Your friends can help in some situations and others, you just need more help than they can offer. If you want support in dealing with life, let’s do it together. Please know you don't have to be alone in this journey. I have the experience to help you achieve your goals, overcome these struggles, and live a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

I look forward to helping you move to a higher level of functioning in your relationships, on your job, and in your home.

I have a years of experience working with adults, veterans, youth, and families. I utilize an eclectic approach to therapy because no two individuals are the same and neither are their concerns. In working with me, you can expect me to incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, systemic therapy, and solution focused therapy.

Let me support you in mending areas of your life in dealing with

Anger
Anxiety
Depression
Trauma
PTSD
And whatever is preventing you from being the best version of you!

Written by C.A. on Jul 27, 2020 after counseling with Evonne for 1 week on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and parenting issues

I was very nervous when starting my 1st session.
I was that nervous I talked lots. I had lots to get off my chest. Evonne did manage to get a few sentences in. But I felt I needed her to understand me.
Evonne did. She was a great listener. But also gave me great advise and summed up quite quickly a few of my issues.
She gave me a different perspective, which I had considered but felt I needed to dig my heels in.
Evonne is kind and and also has a toughness
