Hi, my name is Fernandus and I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor (LCMHC), in the state of North Carolina. I have been in the mental health field for 19-years and have been providing therapy services for 5-years. I graduated from Liberty University in 2016 with a MA in professional counseling. I have a background in working with ages from 5 to 65- years old. The interventions I use in treatment include psycho-education, mindfulness techniques, anger management techniques, emotion regulation, cognitive restructuring, self-control strategies, role-play, Socratic questioning, social skills development, and communication skills development. I used an eclectic approach to therapy which includes using the following modalities: motivational interviewing (MI), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). I firmly believe the answer(s) to all of life's imbalances lies within every individual. And it is my responsibility to assist others with restoring normalcy in their lives. In addition, my experience as a retired NFL football player allows me the ability to understand how to manage emotions/feelings in intense environments while pressing forward towards identified goals. Reach out to me and let's work together to set and reach attainable goals.

Fernandus is very insightful and allows you to develop a real sense of your true self. Thank you
If I had to describe my experience with Fernandus as a therapist it would be professional and extremely knowledgeable.
He actually has a plan on how to work through my issues that are proven to work instead of just listening to me talk with no way to fix it. He goes beyond just giving me advise; he uses tools to fix my problems
Attitude is very positive and uplifting.
I like the fact that he is a former athlete and even gives sideadvice on physical health.
He has solid opinions on leadership and teamwork and how to prioritize.
Fernandus has a great approach to therapy. He helps me structure my thoughts and asks very pertinent follow up questions that open up other avenues that I haven’t necessarily thought of. I highly recommend him as a therapist.
Dr V is an awesome God sent therapist. Not many I can go to and tell my problems and have someone to actually understand what’s going on with me. So grateful to be paired up with Dr. V.
Helpful earnest and easy to communicate with. Guides me on my own journey not a lifesaving bandaid approach.
I’ve had limited interactions with Fernandez Vinson, but those interactions have been great and helpful. He is a great listener and asked questions to get me thinking. The phone/video sessions are short (it’s the way BetterHelp is set up) and it would be nice if the sessions were longer.
I am very enthusiastic about getting more into my sessions with Fernandus. The strategies that he uses to help me self reflection on myself are really interesting to me and are in line with how I look at the world.
