Associate Professional Clinical Counselor -
*Accepting New Clients. Limited time sliding scale $40-$120 ($60-$120 couples) due to the world situation. Schedule at: kerireneecounseling.com. Sessions available by secure Telehealth video in North Carolina. EMDR, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, Parts Work influenced by Internal Family Systems, and Somatic Therapy (emotions/sensations held in the body) are at the heart of my practice. I am passionate about healing trauma. I provide a safe space for you to turn toward your experience. A whole body-mind approach has the ability to truly heal the roots of our concerns, much more than talk therapy alone.
I also use a variety of other forms of psychotherapy including Hakomi, Contemplative, Person-Centered (Rogerian), Gestalt, Existential, and Cognitive-Behavioral. I have a Master’s Degree in Counseling, I am a National Certified Counselor with the NBCC, and I am Licensed with the North Carolina Board for Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselors.
