Of course, life is not all sunshine and smiles, but it should not be all sadness and stress either. Everyone has a bad day or two once in a while, but if you are feeling down more than two weeks at a time and it is affecting your day to day life, you may need to talk to one of the counselors based in Asheboro.

The City of Asheboro has nine historic buildings on the National Register of Historic Places such as the Sunset Theater, Wilson Kindley Farm and Kindley Mine, and the Thayer Farm Site. If you are a fan of history, you may like visiting these buildings and reading about their backgrounds. But, if you are feeling down, you probably don’t want to do anything. Contact an Asheboro counselor to find out how to get back to happy.

30 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I began my working career as an elementary school teacher. Together, my students and I worked on academic goals. I soon noticed that learning issues of some of my students stemmed from relationship problems at home and at school. This effected learning behaviors often producing non-compliance, anger, depression, and anxiety for these children. These behaviors, sometimes with diagnosed or undiagnosed mental health issues, were usually not being addressed clinically and were taking a toll on their academic progress. I continued my education in counseling to better understand these learning barriers so that I could assist children and their parents. As I learned, I gained knowledge and skills to not only help children and parents, but also to help adults and families to navigate life’s problems and to attain their goals. Goals for the counseling process are associated with maintaining healthy relationships as well as adapting various changes that can produce a positive impact upon our lives. During therapy, my clients are made aware of the power they possess, how to dodge problems, how to accomplish goals, and how to perceive life in a positive manner. I now realize that I cared for my students more than for their academic progress. I cared about their personal well-being. I wanted them to feel productive and capable. I wanted them unencumbered by life’s problems but to have the resilience to overcome their deep seeded issues that affected their lives as a whole. I am interested most in sharing what I have learned to influence people reach their goals. It would be a privilege to assist you in this work.

I obtained my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology and Children’s Studies from CUNY Brooklyn College. My Master of Marriage and Family Therapy was attained from North central University. On September 11, 2001, I started my first day on the job in a treatment program in New York. After the events of that day I realized the importance of continuing my work in helping others as a Human Services professional. I provided services to the Intellectually/Developmentally Disabled, children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders, and the family caregivers of these individuals. In my profession as a Marriage and Family Therapist, I am committed to helping individuals and relational systems with the moments in life that need behavioral, mental health, and therapeutic processing. I support clients via Behavioral, Cognitive Behavioral, Mindfulness-based and Human Growth Therapy Models to assist them in managing maladaptive behaviors, methods of communicating thoughts and emotions, as well as improving mental health self-care. My cultural competence stems from my Caribbean heritage and from my interactions with different cultures and socioeconomic statuses while growing up in New York City. Residing in Fayetteville, NC, which is also home to people from varying nations as well as military culture, has continued to broaden my cultural awareness. “HEALING IS ACTIVE SO IT’S TIME TO MOVE FROM TRYING TO DOING!” -Let me help you engage in your healing.

Sometimes we feel 'stuck.' Sometimes we experience negative emotions which we feel conflict with our values, morals, ideals. Sometimes we feel an emptiness. Like our inner flame...the one which burns inside, pushing us to set & pursue goals, dream, live life with a sense of anticipation...has dimmed, until just an ember. Sometimes our negative life experiences get us caught up in the lies of guilt and shame. Paralyzing us. Keeping us from moving forward. Perhaps it's more than 'just' feelings and emotions. Maybe symptoms of mental illness make life hard. And navigating through life, each day, each moment, feels like tedious work. However...please know there is help. There is hope. There is healing. There is so much more to life than what you may be currently experiencing. I have years of experience serving others. I have taught middle school and high school English; worked as a therapist in community mental health and private practice; and worked as a school counselor. I am a counselor who is a Christian. And although I truly believe that the spiritual aspects of an individual’s whole self should be explored and nurtured in therapy, whether or not we explore the spiritual dimension of life will be up to you. I have a passion working with those who feel they are not living life to its fullest. Why? Because I truly believe each of us has the ability to fully participate in a life which excites and fulfills.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Asheboro therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Asheboro due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300

If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Asheboro?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Asheboro therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Asheboro therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Asheboro therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Asheboro therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in NC, therapists may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 27205 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Asheboro counselor?

Before seeing your Asheboro therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Asheboro.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Asheboro licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Asheboro counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Asheboro, North Carolina can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Asheboro has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
