About Me

Hello, my name is Bonita Hutchison and I hold dual licensure in Mental Health and Substance Abuse Counseling.

Over the last 20 years, I have learned a wholistic approach to health and wellness that includes: Spirituality, Relationships, Mental and Physical Health. Each year to better serve you and provide the help needed to live and feel better I have continued to master additional skills to support your needs and recovery so you can "live and not perish when confronted with the struggles and trials of this world." I have studies different cultures and religions and discovered that we have within us the power to heal and overcome pain, depression, anxiety and heart break.

I work with residents of North Carolina and New Jersey and hold mental health credentials and addiction counseling licensure in both states.

My job is to help you see the light that shines within, provide hope and explore what is blocking your happiness, joy or blessings as we work together to increase your awareness of how your thinking, words and deeds impacts the mind - body - and spirit.

Bonita helped me to work on family issues that have been playing on my mind for a while and thanks to her I was able to work on forgiving and accepting situations that were beyond my control. I appreciated that Bonita was very in tune with my problems and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend her services and would love to work with her again. Thank you!

I like it that Bonita tunes in to what I am saying & especially that she recommends appropriate Biblical passages, I find that very helpful.

Bonita is more than just a counselor, she is very much a friend. She helped me get through one of the darkest times of my life. Within the first week, I was already feeling results. Even those close to me noticed changes in my mood. Bonita has taught me life long coping mechanisms that I can practice long after my time with her is over.
