Ang’elita Dawkins, LCMHC, LCAS

Philosophy of Care

No one is exempt form experiencing the various challenges of life. While we cannot always control the things that happen, we can be empowered in how we navigate life’s challenges. As a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and a Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist in the state of North Carolina, my goal is to walk with you through the challenges you are experiencing and aid in “re-writing the script” to support changes in thinking, responses to emotions, and overall behaviors. My goal is to serve as an agent of change to support you in making the changes that you most desire to experience in your life.

I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and my Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Capella University. I am currently completing a Ph.D. in Counselor Education & Supervision from Capella University. I tailor individual, couples, and family therapy utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and a person-centered approach to therapy when working with individuals, couples, and families.

I have aided both adults and adolescents in navigating addiction and substance use issues, as well as served adults, children, and adolescents experiencing anxiety, depression, ADHD, mood disorders, life stressors and transitions, family and relationship issues, eating disorders, trauma, self-esteem issues, and anger management issues. I also encourage the use of expressive therapy techniques to support the unique challenges my clients are experiencing.

Sherri Osborne
Self Pay Rate: $199: Intake $149: Follow-up

Sherri Osborne, PMHNP-BC, GNP-BC

Philosophy of Care

Sherri Osborne is a certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner as well as a Gerontological Nurse Practitioner in the State of North Carolina who has 12 years of experience in working with adults seeking help with medication management for mental health conditions.  She completed her Master’s Degree in Nursing from the University of South Alabama along with her post-Master’s certificate.  She also received her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from Winston-Salem State University and her Associate’s Degree in Nursing from Guilford Technical Community College.

Sherri utilizes a wholistic approach to mental health conditions. The goal is to ensure that one’s physical health has been ruled out as a contributing factor.  Medication is only a piece of providing care and in combination with counseling can be effective in improving a person’s quality of life. There is never the goal to dumb and numb someone but to have the least amount of medicine needed to help manage symptoms.  

Sherri seeks to establish a relationship with you that is based on warmth, trust, caring, and integrity in order to promote mental wellness and recovery for you which in turn improves your quality of life.  Every day life can be hard and stressful and having someone there to support you in that journey can mean a lot. Goal is for each day to be the best it can be for you and as your life improves so does the lives of those around you.

Meeting with my counselor has been quite helpful to my understanding of a family member's mental health diagnosis. Her ability to clarify behaviors and share her knowledge has been epic, especially related to high-functioning autism, and to proposing different ways that I can work through challenges, all the while ensuring my own self-care.
