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 12 years of experience working as a therapist. I have spent several years dedicated to working in individual counseling, specifically in the areas of depression, anxiety, relationship issues, behavioral concerns, parenting, family issues, adjustment/transitions, and trauma. I believe in helping my clients find the joy and happiness in life that they deserve and providing clients with the skills and techniques to be able to manage the ups and downs of life and live a healthier and happier life.

My approach in the counseling process is a client-centered approach. I believe in meeting the client where they are and guiding sessions based on what the clients needs are 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.

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!

I’ve only had 2 sessions with Rikki so far but she’s helped me more than any therapist I’ve had in the last 15+ years! She REALLY listens, she takes notes, she asks the right questions, she digs deep to get to the root of the problem and, comes up with actual possible solutions. She doesn’t just sit there silently and wait for me to come up with an answer on my own, we have an actual conversation about my life and how I’m feeling. I really feel like she’s with me every step of the way. I can’t recommend her enough!!!!

I have a good relationship with Rikki. She really understands the multidimensional aspects of my issues and I feel very comfortable discussing things with her.

Rikki has been a God send in my life now for over a year, and it’s been a rough year!! She helps me make sense of the crazy in my world without an ounce of judgment, pure genuine concern and compassion with just enough accountability to help me week to week handle whatever may be thrown my way. She hears past my words and sees things in ways I’m not able to in the moment. She reaches out with words of wisdom and guidance on days we don’t have sessions, but somehow at the exact time that I need to hear what she has to say. Therapy isn’t anything like the stigma it received years ago, she is a staple in my life and I am so very grateful for Better Help matching me with her :)
