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!

Feeling overwhelmed, stressed, and exhausted constantly? Isolated and alone because you don’t want to burden your friends or family with your problems? Or maybe you don’t know quite how to name why you feel this way or how to talk about it. Well, there is good news - therapy is the place to explore these challenging thoughts and feelings. I’ve worked in mental health since 2016, helping people of all ages, backgrounds, and challenges. I approach mental health challenges with a holistic mindset to help identify what we can change, inside of our control, and increase reliance. Depression, anxiety, ADHD, and trauma are a few examples of mental health struggles that impact how we live and experience the world. However, the opposite is also true! Because our lifestyles can influence our ability to tolerate stress and feel good about ourselves. My job as a therapist is to help you work through what is working, and what isn't working, and what we can do about it. I believe in us working as a team and supporting you in achieving your goals, so you can reconnect with your inner strength, resilience, and confidence to manage life's challenging ebbs and flows. Why choose me? Well, to help me feel like less of a stranger, here is more detail about my background. My M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling is from Lenoir Rhyne University's Graduate Center of Asheville, NC in Dec. 2020. I hold a B.S. in Psychology from Longwood University in Farmville, VA. I'm a Qualified Mental Health Professional with 5.5 years of direct care experience with adolescents in residential treatment. My graduate internship was community and school-based outpatient therapy with Access Family Services. August 2021 to March 2024, I was an outpatient therapist, in-person and virtual, with a company in the Chapel Hill area.

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.

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.

Would you like to create space for work/ life balance? Would it be helpful to learn more about the connection between your behaviors, feelings, and thoughts? Are you ready to talk about coping strategies- both those that work and learn new ones? I work collaboratively with individuals and families to manage stressors, feelings of stress and anxiety, and cope with addictions. I help clients develop coping strategies that may challenge past thoughts and behaviors but lead toward the accomplishment of goals. Sometimes, it is simply reminding ourselves of what worked before and getting back on track and other times, it is about learning something never practiced before.

Hello, I am Wanda Kellyman, a dedicated and highly qualified professional specializing in mental health and personal development. My extensive qualifications include National Certified Counselor, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, Board Certified Life Coach, and Mindfulness Practitioner. With these credentials, I've honed my expertise in providing transformative therapy and guidance to individuals seeking personal growth and healing. My therapeutic approach is rooted in holism and strength-based principles. I understand that each person is a complex being with interconnected aspects of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Rather than focusing solely on problems or deficits, I empower my clients by highlighting their innate strengths and resources, helping them effectively navigate life's challenges. To create a more engaging and dynamic therapeutic process, I integrate various forms of creative expression into my sessions. Through poetry, art, music, meditation, and movement, I encourage clients to explore and communicate their inner emotions and thoughts. This creative dimension not only fosters self-expression but also deepens self-awareness and introspection, leading to profound personal insights and growth. By harmonizing my certifications, experiences, and passion for holistic well-being, I strive to cultivate a supportive and compassionate environment where individuals can flourish and embark on their unique journeys of self-discovery and transformation. I firmly believe in the immense potential within each person to lead a fulfilling and purposeful life, and I am wholeheartedly committed to guiding them on that empowering path toward mental and emotional well-being. The overarching theme of my approach can be summarized in three words: Engagement, Empowerment, and Bliss. Through engagement in creative and reflective processes, clients find the power to empower themselves and ultimately achieve a state of blissful well-being.

The most important journey in life is self-discovery. It is a difficult step because we must confront our faults and accept humility to achieve personal growth. My job is to help you find your favorite version of yourself. I'm here to help guide your path while you learn to love yourself, accept your past and current circumstances, and foster healthier relationships. On our path of self-discovery, we find ourselves stuck in the past and focusing on our hardships, or allow our fears to prevent us from reaching our goals. I want to help you embrace the resilience your past has created and overcome your fears to achieve your goals. Spending the past four years of my career working in my community and offering treatment on an inpatient level; I've helped clients in their darkest hours and offered support and a non-judgemental space for them in their most vulnerable times. I have my specialty, but I'm willing to work with and learn with you, regardless of where you are on your journey. I understand how uncomfortable it is to be honest with a stranger without fear of judgment. It's difficult to trust anyone with our most intimate and vulnerable thoughts and experiences. It's my goal to provide a space of compassion that is supportive and non-judgmental. I will always be honest with you and open to your feedback.

Hi, I'm Teshia. Despite your best efforts, do you find yourself on the verge of divorce? Your marriage may be a disaster, but your divorce doesn't have to be! As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with nearly 20 years of experience as a family law paralegal, I possess a unique set of skills that are invaluable to those who find themselves in the throes of divorce. In addition to providing support through one of the most difficult life transitions, understanding that the legal process of divorce has the potential to inhibit the healing process and completely devastate families, I provide my clients with a better way to divorce...a way that builds up instead of tears down...a way that refashions your family instead of leaving it shattered. Since every ending brings a new beginning, my goal as your therapist is to guide you through the uncertainty of divorce, help you regain your balance and help you lay the foundation for a HEALTHY new beginning. No matter where you are in the divorce process, whether working as your therapist or as your divorce coach, I am dedicated to helping you regroup, recover and grow. "GREAT IS THE ART OF BEGINNING, BUT GREATER IS THE ART OF ENDING." -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I am retired Army officer and a licensed and board certified clinical social worker. I am considered a subject matter expert in a few areas, primarily cognitive behavior therapy. I chose to be a cognitive therapist because it resonates with me and because it works. Traditional talk therapy can be cathartic and have a relaxing effect, but you could do that with a friend at no cost. I value your time and money by utilizing evidence-based psychotherapy techniques to help you get better faster and learn the skills to help keep you out of a therapists office in the future.
