I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor licensed in North Carolina with over 5 years of experience working as a counselor and therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and various mental health diagnoses. I have had the privilege of working in both outpatient and inpatient settings, in order to assist individuals in progressing towards their personal goals. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
Theoretically, I work from a Cognitive-Behavioral, Person-Centered, and Solution-Focused approach. A Cognitive-Behavioral approach focuses on behavior and how behavior is reinforced or negated by what happens as a result of the behavior occurring. A Person-Centered approach is based on the philosophy that people are basically good, while also acknowledging that people must advance developmentally to become what they are intended to be and reach their full potential. A Solution-Focused approach focuses on the future and encourages the client to establish meaningful personal goals, as well as identify the available resources to reach those goals.
The theoretical approach that I utilize integrates all of the aforementioned theories and their techniques, in order to personalize counseling and make it as effective as possible for each individual client. As a client, you are in complete control and may choose to terminate our counseling relationship at any time. In my experience, the most difficult step in the counseling process is the first step; and that is being willing to ask for help.
I know how difficult asking for help can be, but if you are willing to take that step, I would privileged to assist you in working towards living a happier and healthier life!!

I love her- she is wise and warm. Very intelligent and caring.
Mattie has made me so comfortable and has messaged me consistently to talk through so many things! I am very grateful I have her as a counselor. She is great and offers a lot of good tips. She presents things in a way I understand and sends gets worksheets too. I really enjoy my conversations with her and feel I get great support and advice from it.
Mattie has been a great counselor! She listens but is also ready and willing to move towards results (which is what I wanted). Between being able to share with her and a few assigned worksheets, I've been able to identify three goals and steps to moving forward towards bettering my mental and emotional health. I also appreciate that she sends an uplifting note/quote twice a week. :) I'd highly recommend Mattie to anyone!
Great questions and helpful advice.
Mattie is very understanding but also gives tools for change which was important to me.
I really enjoyed working with Mattie. She took the time to listen to me and help me. She really got to know me and gave me a lot of insight on myself and life.
Mattie is awesome! I feel very comfortable sharing things with her. She responds in a non-judgmental way and helps me to see things in a different perspective. She has helped me so much! I highly recommend working with her!
Mattie has been helping me change my life around to become my best self and understanding my problems during our sessions and worksheets. She is the best!
Mattie has been so kind and sweet along my mental health journey. She explains things so that even a toddler could understand. Going into this, I had no idea where to start or who to talk to, but it feels like I’ve known Mattie forever! I appreciate all her hard work and dedication to her clients and myself of whom she treats like family, not dollar signs! It’s nice to know you have someone in your corner to back you up when this life gets rough!
Mattie is attentive and caring. I can feel the passion she has for her job through our sessions. I am thoroughly enjoying having her has my counselor!!
Mattie is fantastic. Understanding, supportive, and explains the why and how to overcome your obstacles! Highly recommend!
Mattie Wellmon is a very understanding and helpful counselor.
Starting my sessions with my counselor have been a real eye opener. She has taken her time to understand what I have been trying to say for years but did not have the courage to. I was very skeptical of this app to help with mental health but it has honestly turned my life around. I still have my down days (which are a lot) but she has always responded to me as fast as she can. Even if she just listens it’s enough for me to feel comfortable.
Very thoughtful and comes across very sincere. Professional.
Mattie does an excellent job at really looking at issues from all angles. I enjoy reading responses from her as I know they will be of knowledge and expertise. She works hard to get to the root of issues and find the best solution or help working through an issue at hand.
She’s been really helpful and one of the first therapists I’ve had in my life that really listens to me.
Mattie is a very caring counselor and has given me excellent advise thus far.
