A healthy mind is something that I believe is essential to overall health and I strive to do my best to help others improve in this area. Meeting clients where they are and helping them work through their ambivalence is something that I feel is essential to the therapeutic relationship. I specialize in helping women navigate life's transitions, set boundaries, and improve their self-confidence. I have years of experience working with adult populations to help them gain tools to better manage their lives. In my sessions I promote behavioral transformation by encouraging a positive outlook and the adoption of new attitudes and reactions. In the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results. In my free time I enjoy working jigsaw and Sudoku puzzles, traveling, spending time with family, and watching the HGTV network. I look forward to helping you on this journey of becoming the best version of you!

In the U.S. Army my specialty was combat and military sexual trauma-related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Combat Operational Stress.

8 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hello, and good to see you here! I come from eight years in doctors' offices and am a licensed clinical social worker and certified health coach. I have always known that helping people was the right path for me. Along the way, I have met and served many different kinds of people. I respect every person and only aim to get you where you would like to be. As a social worker, I see you as the expert of yourself and am determined to help you get what you want. I bring to the table excellent diagnostic skills and a focus on evidence-based intervention with an approach that is always centered around you, the client! I would say that the vast majority of my experience as a therapist lies with folks who have depressive and anxiety symptoms and who have experienced trauma. While trauma is a part of life, the past can affect us right now. Healing from trauma is possible, and your path will be your own. I am here to walk beside you on that path, using techniques that are effective and responsive to your needs as well as based in science. As a health coach, I can offer you elevated well being. Coaching harnesses your motivation and inner wisdom to help you meet goals in any areas of your life that feel off-balance or need attention. Health coaching can be effective and powerful. It can also help you implement goals and treatment plans from other professionals or meet important health demands that may impact your future--all while breaking down barriers and tapping into strengths you may have never noticed. I hope that my authentic compassion and desire to positively impact the the world and you as an individual will be evident from the first time we talk and throughout our work together. Let's get started!

Hi, my name is Breo'na, my counseling style is welcoming, non-judgmental, and interactive. I firmly believe that people are experts regarding themselves and realize the importance of meeting individuals, as clients exactly where they are in life. My guiding technique is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which focuses on the rationale of an individual’s cognitive beliefs and distorted thoughts as well as the combination of Solution-Focused, Psychodynamic, and Person-Centered Therapy. I have experience working with clients that struggle with self-esteem, anxiety, and relationship issues. I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in Atlanta, Georgia. I am also a licensed in North Carolina as a clinical mental health counselor (LCMHC). I attended Wright State University located in Dayton, Ohio where I was born and raised. There I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Psychology (2011) and a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (2014). I strive to make a positive impact on others, while guiding them to recognize their ability to become the person they desire to be, through any given circumstance, hardship, or experience. I have found that my work as a counselor for the past 9 years has allotted me the opportunity to do just that! It should be said that there is never a dull moment in therapy with me, as I enjoy laughing, making others laugh, and creating an organic and relaxed environment for my clients.

From time to time, life presents itself as a series of obstacles with some higher than others. I prefer to see problems as a positive challenge to embrace life and seek positive growth that we can do for ourselves. Seeking help is hard enough, and it's my job to ease the process by offering my clients a warm, empathetic, and safe place to address their challenges. If you are struggling with a particular issue, or prefer a safe place to express yourself, I am happy to help you explore your issues. I have been a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in North Carolina since 2007 (we were originally called Licensed Professional Counselors, but that changed a few years ago). During my career, I have worked with adolescents and adults. In any therapeutic interaction, it is important to initially develop a relationship with my clients to develop an environment that promotes empathy, understanding, and support. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Therapy, various approaches drawn from Narrative Therapy, Redecision Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing strategies. We will discuss these approaches to match your needs and preferences while we are in session together. My areas of expertise include depression, anxiety, panic attacks, addiction, chronic pain and health issues, trauma, bereavement, disability-related issues, and adjusting to many of the challenges that life presents us. I use a client-centric approach (meaning YOU are the expert on you) that will allow you to identify your strengths and abilities. I look forward to meeting you and speaking with you!

Welcome! If you're looking for support with difficult feelings or challenges in your life then you're in the right place. Life can be really hard. Big plans fall through, relationships breakup, connection in marriage dissolves, family conflict erupts, cycles of anxiety and depression amplify, questions of personal fulfillment pop up, trauma happens... Sometimes figuring out how to get through difficult experiences feels impossible on our own. When we're struggling with something, talking about it helps. That's what I do. I talk with you about whatever you need to talk about. While we talk, I listen and ask questions to understand who you are, what your experience has been like, and what's important to you. We identify and process the roots of the problem that you're going through. And I support you in strategizing how to move forward with your life in ways that are in alignment with your wellbeing. I provide feedback about tools and skills for mental health and self-growth as needed. I believe that people are capable and that everyone deserves to feel respected and heard. Our capabilities get foggy and uncertain when we're emotionally stressed. Let me help clear away the fog so you feel more confident in what to do next. Therapy with me usually takes 1-3 months for clients to feel relief and resolution from their initial issues. I am a licensed clinical social worker in North Carolina with 10 years of experience as a counselor and mediator. I have education, training, and experience in a variety of therapeutic approaches including solution focused, narrative, cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, and trauma informed therapies. I tailor my approach according to each client's unique goals and needs. My job as your therapist is to empower your strengths and support your wellbeing through whatever challenge life presents. If you're ready, let’s get started!

I view my work as a therapist through a multicultural lens, and I customize my approach depending on the unique needs of every individual I work with. Many people have told me they’ve been frustrated by therapists in the past who sat quietly and provided very little feedback. In response, I’ve developed a forthright, solutions-oriented style of engaging with my clients that encourages them to set goals for themselves and empowers them to work toward them. I also have experience working with clients who prefer a softer, less structured approach, so I can customize the therapy experience to each person. I work well with people who want to channel negative experiences in a more positive direction. During my work in prison systems and in the military, I observed the many self-destructive behaviors that people use in an attempt to cope with difficult situations. I’ve helped people overcome a wide variety of addictive behaviors related to shopping, sex, substance abuse, eating disorders and more. I've also helped those who are experiencing the different stages of grief associated with loss. To change self-destructive behaviors, I believe that people must first change how they think. As a cognitive-behavioral therapist (CBT), I leverage the innate connections between a person’s thoughts, feelings, and actions to enact positive change. By encouraging my clients to question the truth of negative thoughts (such as “people are judging me” or “I’m such a failure”), I help them break out of painful patterns. I also help them focus on their strengths. Using positive psychology and motivational interviewing, I help my clients reframe their thoughts and view themselves in a more positive light. I encourage them to channel their anger, sadness, and other difficult emotions in a way that helps them overcome life’s challenges rather than becoming more deeply entrenched. I believe everyone has the strength to make positive changes. My goal is to help each person I work with cultivate the courage, resiliency, and potential that is already inside them.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Kitty Hawk region and in the state of North Carolina. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Kitty Hawk or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns.

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Kitty Hawk area can be found below:

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

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Kitty Hawk 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.

Kitty Hawk 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 Kitty Hawk 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 Kitty Hawk 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 27949 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your Kitty Hawk 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 Kitty Hawk.

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 Kitty Hawk 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 Kitty Hawk 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 Kitty Hawk, 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.

Kitty Hawk 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.
