Professional statement

The provider is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor based in Wake Forest, North Carolina. She owns WellSource Strategies, PLLC where she counsels individuals, adults, adolescents and children; groups; couples; parents; and families. Driven by the adage, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!” With this optimistic focus, her objective is to improve clients’ lives by employing empirical modalities with a constant eye on their worldview.

Often clients enter therapy with a multitude of issues and aren't sure where to start. During the initial sessions we will prioritize concerns to ensure we address the most critical themes first. As we chop away at the primary themes we build rapport and it’s easier for clients to open up and self actualized self is revealed.

She is passionate about helping clients reach their individual goals, and witnessing them rid themselves of dysfunctional thinking with her guidance. She uses Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Psycho-education (PE), and Mindfulness strategies. These interventions integrate well to help clients overcome trauma, dysfunctional thinking, self esteem issues, job concerns, racing thoughts, and family problems. She works with more severe conditions helping clients manage their minds to live a more fulfilling life in communities
