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!

Rikki is very empathetic and knowledgeable. You need both to be an effective therapist, and she has them in spades.

I love Rikki so much!!!! I am so happy I was placed with her. She is so patient and she brings things out of you that you didn't even know were there. I would recommend her to anyone.

Rikki is a gem. In such a transitional and emotional period time in my life Rikki helped me to not only get through it but also grow through it. Rikki listens and also provides great insight. She also shares appropriate materials and exercises to help solidify the lessons and practices put in place. I look forward to my sessions with Rikki and know every session is a gift and brings more clarity and understanding. Thank you Rikki.

Rikki is amazing!! I feel so fortunate to have found her, I’m really enjoying therapy with her and I have tried a few therapists in the past I just never “clicked” with or felt they understood me. I have greatly benefited from our sessions and always look forward to it. She has played such a huge part in my self awareness and growth, I definitely recommend her to anyone interested in therapy.
