My name is Sally. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist and a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor. I utilize a holistic approach inclusive of Christian Counseling when requested. I consider my job as a calling and feel honored that you have considered me as a possibility to serve you.
My background includes various therapeutic settings that include residential and intensive outpatient treatment, school-based health centers conveniently located on middle and high school campuses and previously owned a private practice (outpatient treatment) in Goldsboro, NC. Throughout my career of 25+years, I have had the honor to serve clients with depression, anxiety/stress, substance abuse, emotional abuse, relationship issues, ADHD, trauma and career difficulties.
Currently, I live in Goldsboro, NC. Formerly, I resided in Las Vegas, NV (8 years) where I worked as a case manager and vocational rehabilitation counselor. I returned to my home state of NC and earned 3 Master Degrees from East Carolina University in Substance Abuse Clinical Counseling, Rehabilitation Counseling and Vocational Evaluation. My undergraduate degree is in Sociology from Campbell University, Buies Creek, NC.
My counseling style is warm and down to earth. I am a good listener and believe in treating everyone with dignity and respect. I am sensitive, compassionate and non-judgmental. Just the fact that you are reading this and reached out demonstrates courage and a desire to change! Congratulations! You have taken the first step towards a more fulfilling as well as an empowering life! A desire to change takes time, patience and hard work. If you are willing to do the work, just know I am here to support you on your journey!
My counseling theories are eclectic and include: person-center therapy because you are the expert in your life; my focus will be with your desired and achievable goals; cognitive behavior therapy to change the automatic negative thoughts and promote self-awareness that "stinking thinking" can be changed to positive, truthful self-talk that produces an improved mood; and solution focus therapy that focuses on building current resources and future hopes.
I can interact with you as to what you are most comfortable. To develop a rapport, I have found it helpful to participate in video sessions. But I am also available via text or phone if that is your preference. I try to check my messages periodically throughout the day but it depends upon my schedule. Rest assured, I will get back with you ASAP!
On a personal note, in my spare time, I enjoy reading, gardening, painting and being around nature. I also do rescue work with animals (cats and dogs) to assist them with needed medical care and placement in their "furever" home. I am a "people person" and enjoy having friends from various cultures! I previously taught Sunday School classes to adults and children at my church (Madison Avenue Baptist Church) for many years.
I know this was probably a difficult decision for you. Just the fact that you reached out and asked for help was courageous! It takes strength to ask for help! Congratulations on making a positive change in your life! Thank you for the opportunity to possibly serve you in your journey! I am looking forward to hearing from you in the near future!
