About Me

“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel.” Mayo Angelo

Hi! My name is Shameika Bostic and I am a LCMHC in North Carolina, a LPC in Virginia and South Carolina. I have over 12 years of counseling experience. I provide supportive counseling to all individuals with a wide range of concerns including: trauma, anxiety/stress, adjustment issues, communications skills, depression, relationship issues, low self-esteem, identity issues, (co)parenting problems ..... just to name a few. I will modify our dialogue and treatment planning to meet your unique and specific needs.

I would describe my approach to therapy as being eclectic, pulling from a variety of modalities to best serve the needs and goals of the client. The modalities in which I use most often include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Client-Centered Therapy.

Taking the first step is knowing that there are people who you can listen to and lean on, who have lived through what you’re going through. My goal is to provide to you with some tools and coping techniques that you can utilize on a daily basis. I am confident that with you and I working together you will be more equipped to maneuver through those uncomfortable moments in your life.

In closing, I want to leave you with these words of encouragement, “whatever it is that is making you feel lonely or unloved, know that you are, and have always been, strong enough to get through it.”

Let's talk about how I can help you feel better!

She's a very lovely lady! Understanding of my problems!

Written by A.S. on Jun 05, 2021 after therapy with Shameika for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, parenting issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

In the short time I have been working with Shameika, I can already feel a difference in my mental health. She is just wonderful. Navigating the tragedy of losing my mom is the most painful thing I've ever encountered, and Shameika is so helpful.
She has given me tools and asked me questions that help me cope. I am so happy that I found her, and I am looking forward to my future time with her.

Written by L.I. on May 20, 2021 after therapy with Shameika for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Shameika saw me through a very tough-to-navigate chapter in my life, and I'm so grateful! She listened carefully and remembered details from previous sessions to help me connect the dots and see more of myself and my potential. I feel like I have some new tools and strategies to do better by myself, and to enjoy more of my life.

She has been very helpful and supportive during my healing and triggers.

Written by H.O. on Apr 13, 2021 after therapy with Shameika for 3 months on issues concerning trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, and adhd

Shameika has been extremely supportive during my healing journey. She listens well and keeps a nice sense of humor during our sessions. We address all of my goals and the sessions are often self led which is helpful for me but I can rely on her keeping us on track. I would highly recommend her as a therapist.

Written by K.A. on Apr 11, 2021 after therapy with Shameika for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and coping with life changes

She is so good at making space/time for me. She’s honest and trustworthy and has walked me through my darkest days by pushing me to trust and rely on myself.

Written by M.I. on Feb 27, 2021 after therapy with Shameika for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coaching

Shameika has truly been a gift. She’s the tough love that I know that I need but don’t always go searching for. She is supportive of my decisions and helps me work though my whys. I am so grateful for her.

Written by L.O. on Feb 11, 2021 after therapy with Shameika for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, and relationship issues

It's always tough for me to find new therapists, but Shameika is really phenomenal! She makes me laugh, holds me accountable, and creates an environment where I feel extremely comfortable sharing and exploring my emotions/experience. Could not recommend her more highly !

Written by S.A. on Feb 04, 2021 after therapy with Shameika for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, career difficulties, bipolar disorder, and adhd

Shameika has been great in helping me cope with my ADHD as well as my anxiety. We have explored several options and responses to various situations. She has helped me to pinpoint things I am doing/thinking that I can take control of and helps me to do so in multiple ways.

Blunt, but effective. If I had to review Mrs. Monroe-Bostic’s technique. She is truly an amazing therapist who truly cares for her patients. I read her bio before our first meeting and even still wasn’t prepared at her blunt methods. Though it is exactly what I need and is not condescending at all. She is truly amazing. 5/5 stars!!

Love how responsive and how I am given real work and how I feel “seen” and heard by Shameika. It feels safe to talk about hard things and I am looking forward to doing the work needed with her.

Written by A.N. on Dec 21, 2020 after therapy with Shameika for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, self esteem, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Shameika provides me with a realistic, compassionate but blunt approach to things, and I quite frankly need it! She listens, she understands, and I’ve enjoyed working with her so far.

Written by S.M. on Dec 06, 2020 after therapy with Shameika for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, self esteem, coping with life changes, coaching, and adhd

So far so good. Very helpful so far. I have been given alot of resources. I have only had on session so far. Can't wait until the next session.

Written by C.A. on Nov 10, 2020 after therapy with Shameika for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression

I like Shameika's "give it to you straight" mentality. She tells you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. This has helped me to understand my issue and how to confront it. More of her style is needed in everyone's life.

Written by R.A. on Nov 06, 2020 after therapy with Shameika for 2 weeks on issues concerning anger management

I am very happy once some mechanics were worked out on my end in operating your screen and gaining insight on navigating from Shameika Monroe Bostic

Written by K.Y. on Nov 02, 2020 after therapy with Shameika for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and adhd

I am so glad I found Shameika! We have texted a few times and had a phone session and it really was super helpful. I am very happy I finally found someone who can help me with what I’m going through

Work with me!
