Paula Fleming

LPC, LCMHC

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and Licensed Addictions Counselor in the North and South Carolina area. I am African American of West Indian descent and originally from the United Kingdom moving to the US when I was 11. I started my career in 1989 in the Air Force as a Mental Health Specialists and have been a licensed therapist for 19 years.
I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship and anger issues, work related problems, career challenges. I have also worked with clients who are reentering their community after incarceration, who have felt an immense sense of displacement.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with dignity, respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My counseling approach combines cognitive-behavioral therapy, acceptance commitment therapy, short term solution focused, and motivational Interviewing. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek and work towards a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step, I would be honored to work with you and I am here to support and empower you.
