About me

Welcome to Better Help! My name is Rikki Bullard I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) in the state of North Carolina and have over 10 years of experience working as a master leveled therapist. I have spent several dedicated to working specifically with children, adolescents, & families around issues of depression/anxiety, behavioral concerns, parenting, relationships/family issues, adjustment/transitions, and trauma. I believe in helping my clients find the joy and happiness in life that they deserve and provide clients techniques and skills to be able to manage life’s difficult stressors.

My approach in the counseling process is a client-centered approach. I believe in meeting the client where they are and guiding sessions and change with the client by using reflective questions. This theoretical approach allows the counselor/therapist to apply components of several major counseling and psychological theories including, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Existential, Person-Centered Therapy, Reality Therapy, and other disciplines within the field of psychology and counseling to allow for maximal results upon the specific needs of the clients. Each of these approaches is well-established, researched, and respected therapies.

I will have open and honest communications with clients and provide compassionate, empathic, and sensitive counseling that is specific to the experiences of your life problems and transitions.

I look forward to working with you to help you get to a place of peace and happiness. Let’s take that first step together!

For the first time in my life, I feel like someone cares. Rikki truly listens and tries to understand my struggles. She also offers suggestions and help where she can.

Rikki ROCKS!!! Hands down the best therapist I have ever had. She is present, offers tools, checks in, very attentive, real and relatable. My life looks completely different in the most positive way as a result of our collaboration and her support. Rikki is truly gifted in this field.

There just aren't enough words to express my gratitude of having Rikki in my life. I've been working with her for a little over 3 months now maybe, they have gone by fast, but I don't myself almost anxiously awaiting our sessions so that I can have her calm sound advice and ideas, especially when I find myself conning up with dead ends on my end! BetterHelp is great and Rikki is phenomenal!!!

I've worked with Rikki for a year and I've unlocked more positivity and potential than I thought was ever possible. Beginning with understanding my negative thoughts and feelings to doing well in job interviews and beyond! I'd recommend her to anybody looking for a soothing presence and immediately recognizable expertise.

I was hesitant coming into therapy for the first time in my life, but Rikki made me feel comfortable and respected. It’s easier said than done talking about things in your life that you want to work on with someone you’ve never met, but I was shocked with how natural it felt. I love my sessions and I feel like I take away so many tools to help me in life.
