Hi there, I am Jen. Do you want to improve the quality of your life? Do you want to make long-lasting changes that improve areas of your life such as work and relationships? I empower clients to overcome the daily challenges of dealing with such issues as depression (or other mood disorders), anxiety, PTSD/Trauma, and grief. I'm here to help clients (ages 10 & up) get back to a place in their life where they feel more balanced, secure and to a place where they feel happy with their overall quality of life. I do believe in a holistic approach that focuses on the mind-body-spirit connection. I utilize various techniques that include mindfulness, helping you identify and address irrational thoughts, motivational interviewing and more. I work with clients to identify treatment goals at their 1st appointment, if possible and I also like to assign therapeutic "homework" since this helps clients practice and eventually acquire the skills they need to feel better about themselves and their lives. No matter the issue, I'm here to help. Seeking therapy is a brave thing to do and I will provide a safe space to help you heal and grow. In our sessions, I will provide empathy, active listening and humor to help you overcome what is troubling you. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

I believe there is power in learning to balance our lives emotionally and spiritually. I have 25-plus years of experience as a counselor, and have been able to help clients find emotional and general life balance. I draw from primary treatment modalities of Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral, Solution Focused, Psychodynamic, and Existential Theories. At the conclusion of counseling, clients should be able to actively deal with their internal states in a way that allows them to feel more at peace with increased self-esteem, and well-being.

Feeling overwhelmed? There are kids, parents, work, spouse, school, and when you think of all the things your head feels like it might explode. When you add in anxiety, depression, frustration from being unable to focus, grief, or any other mental health struggle, it probably adds to the whirlwind you feel like you're stuck in. Maybe you've been told "it could be worse," or to "be grateful," but this didn't make you feel any better. No matter how big or small you think your situation is, your emotions and what you're feeling are valid and important, and worthy of acknowledgment and exploration. It's time to take care of you and seek help, in a safe, empathetic, and judgment-free space. Once you feel heard and validated, we can dive in together to explore where your feelings may come from. I understand it can be hard to reach out for help, but I will meet you where you are emotionally and proceed at your pace. Allow me to join you in your journey.

Hi! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based out of North Carolina. I received my Masters degree from Arizona State University and have been practicing for 9 years. I believe that working together in a safe, non-judgmental environment can create space for the healing you deserve. In my early career I worked with Child Protective Services to support the reunification of children with their biological parents. I then moved to North Carolina to continue work with keeping families together that had suffered trauma and/or behavioral issues. From there, I worked as an individual therapist working with teenagers and adults. During that time, I led groups that focused on education for women who experienced anxiety on a daily basis. Prior to the Grow Therapy platform, I worked to support adults in crisis who needed immediate psychiatric support.

Hello, I’m Dulcie. Have you been struggling and wondering why it’s so hard to feel happy, have a positive outlook, and accomplish the goals you have for your life? Are feelings of disappointment, confusion, and failure contributing to problems with your emotional health and relationships? Do you feel like nothing will ever change so what’s the point in trying? Well, let me tell you why, you are worth it and it’s never too late to invest in YOU! I have many years of experience counseling great people just like you, working together to navigate life’s obstacles, find common sense solutions, and help guide and support you during life transitions. If you allow me to go on this journey of change with you, I will focus on a person-centered approach where your needs, goals, and objectives will be the roadmap for our work together. I will use evidence-based treatment techniques, largely based on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to help you identify and change patterns in thinking and behavior that may be contributing to your current dissatisfaction. But perhaps even more important than the therapeutic approach employed, I will endeavor to build a relationship with you by being present, genuine, honest, and compassionate. I have learned that the outcomes my clients achieve are often a reflection of the strength of our therapeutic relationship. So, are you ready to partner with me as you endeavor to overcome the situations, relationship challenges, or symptoms that seem to be barriers between you and your best life? If so, I am committed to walking with you on your journey.

Well, hello there :) It is nice to see you here. Are you struggling to exist within the constructs of late-stage capitalism? Do you want to find meaning, purpose and connection in a world that feels unpredictable and unsafe? The pain inside of you is reflective of the collective chaos outside of you. Your feelings are valid. 🫂 If this resonates with you, look no further. Your anti-capitalist therapist is here. As a potential client, you should be aware of the lens I look through + the privileges I hold. I am white, cis-gender and queer. I am Autistic, ADHD and a survivor. I am the eldest daughter of an immigrant. I reside on land stolen from the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians. My clients utilize therapy to zoom out on societal systems and structures and delve deep into their own psyches. Session time will be spent exploring your family system, attachment style and how systems of oppression such as ableism may have influenced your access to the support you have always deserved. The therapeutic bond we build is where the work starts. I serve as a warm witness as you begin the work of unlearning and healing. My approach to therapy is transpersonal, humanistic and deep. As our work together evolves, I will begin to recognize patterns in the way you think and relate to others. My clients are Neurodivergent (many times undiagnosed/late diagnosed), queer, intelligent, self-reflective, symbolic thinkers who are interested in understanding themselves and how their early childhood experiences shaped their relational patterns today. I work with "Talented & Gifted burn-out kids" who finally feel safe to un-mask. My clients are highly intuitive, empathetic and sensitive, sometimes to a fault. I work with recovering people-pleasers who question authority and are engaged in breaking cycles of generational trauma.
