About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist-Associate (LCAS-A) in North Carolina. I have over 10 years clinical experience in assisting people of all ages, nationalities, races, gender expressions, diverse backgrounds, and sexual identities. I have a particular expertise in depression, anxiety, grief, mood disorders, trauma, substances and behavioral addictions. I also have experience of working with criminal justice involved persons who also have mental health issues, addiction or need assistance with reintegrating back into society. I pride myself on being culturally sensitive and aware of racial differences and how important this is with an individual's life experience.

My style is warm, non-judgmental, and relational. I believe we all need and deserve to feel understood and appreciated in our complexity throughout our lives. I help clients to explore their experiences with a sense of curiosity, sensitivity, and compassion. I use strength-based and solution focused approach to my work to ensure my clients get real-time solutions for real-life challenges. I also use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness to help reduce symptoms and find new ways of coping with these identified challenges. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

My goal is to create a safe, supportive environment and welcoming space for you to do the courageous work of growth, healing, and wellness. I am here to support you.

Written by M.A. on Aug 21, 2021 after therapy with Tremaine for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, and career difficulties

I have been in therapy for as long as I can remember and Ive never really reached to that point where I can say I am better equipped and the therapy i was getting made me confident to go out there and know I can do life by myself. When he told me about what we were going to do and not ask me "how do u want me to help you"...i knew he was going to be "the" one. He allows me to express my thoughts and say what i think and instead of criticisms...he would instead generate thinking and reflection by giving me worksheets. these actually became an integral part of my journey to self discovery. He addresses issues that i raise through facts without being dismissive or condescending. What he does is he patiently allows me to talk....until he hears me say what he needed from me which means he empowers me by making me feel im doing the work that i needed to be doing.He is generous enough to almost not take the credit and graciously give it to me. I realize to be an effective therapist...more than the experience and knowledge...the person must always have the humility to acknowledge that they are human beings who doesnt have the miracle cure to make things better...but they only have the wisdom to know how to be in someone else's shoe and realize how lucky they are to actually hold that kind of help individuals who wants the same things most live life the best way we can. Thank you for the encouragement and warm...accepting smiles that is already a therapy in itself and thank you for giving me the nudge to do things i never thought i could.Your worksheets and the smiles are the best part:)
If you want a self actualized fulfillment journey...Mr.Tremaine will be the best choice:)
