About Me

Hi, I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the mental health field for the last 36 years. The first part of my career was in in Virginia working as an emergency mental health therapist in a community mental health clinic. I moved to North Carolina 30 years ago. For 16 years I worked as a mental health therapist in an inpatient psychiatric hospital. Then I went to work for the military as a mental health therapist working with the Marines and Navy servicemembers for the last 14 years.

I also had a part time private practice for 23 years where I primarily worked with couples who were working on their relationship. I did not have much opportunity in my full time job to work with couples which is my passion. I was able to meet with couples in the evening to help them resolve their conflicts and develop positive coping skills as a couple.

I love working with people to help them achieve their goals. My style is to help you develop the goals you want to change and give you the tools to achieve that goal. It is my privilege and honor to help those who are seeking help for themselves. I see my self as an integrative therapist who utilizes many tools to help my clients.


I check my messages several times a day seven days a week and will get back to you within 24 hours or less.

Peggy is thoughtful, kind, and helpful. She gives you the space to work through things yourself but is also open to share some ideas and help you reflect. I feel extremely comfortable with her, even compared to other therapists I’ve had for years in person.

Peggy Fair is the most nonjudgmental empathetic listener I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. She makes me feel understood, seen, cared for, and respected. I would recommend her to anyone needing a nurturing and supportive force in their life.

Peggy is a wonderful therapist who has thoughtful insight and supports you ever step of the way. She listens when I need to talk, gives feedback, and has a big heart. I’m relieved to have Peggy to talk to about things that I am going through and know that I have someone who hears me.

Peggy has been so kind & attentive during our sessions. I've had some questionable experiences with another therapist in the past, i.e., exploiting things we had discussed in private to my parents, falling asleep during sessions, playing games on his phone, taking phone calls during our sessions. Unfortunately, my first therapist turned me off from therapy quite a bit. I ofc had these same concerns when coming to Better help, but Peggy changed all of that for me. She was attentive with my issues, she genuinely listened to the things I had to say & I always felt validated. It was a complete 180 experience for me & I can't thank her enough!

She is a good Listener and responds quickly when I write her. She always helps with my questions or what to do in a situation. I’m getting to know her, but I felt comfortable even on the second meeting.

Peggy is kind, a great listener, and I feel comfortable talking to her. She has a lot of experience which I feel like gives her a lot of perspective. She poses a lot of good questions and thoughts that make me think about things in ways I haven’t before.
