Alexandra Latta, LCMHC

Philosophy of Care

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor In the state of North Carolina with a Master of Science Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from NCA&T State University. I have provided clinical services to children, adolescents, and adults ranging from early adulthood to late adulthood in multiple settings. My counseling experiences include clients that have various backgrounds and life experiences. I have counseled clients with some of the following concerns: gender exploration, relationship orientation, homeliness, trauma, grief/loss, relationship conflict, work/life balance issues, anxiety, and depression.

The counseling process would be a collaborative effort to help navigate presenting concerns using evidence-based practices/interventions. My treatment modalities include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, and Mindfulness Practice.

Seeking help is the first step of many to having a more satisfying quality of life. A lack of resources, supports, or insight of a problem can make finding a solution seem almost impossible. I recognize that a perception of a problem is unique. I am committed to instilling hope and assist with identifying existing barriers to achieving personal goals.

Breanna Johnson, Resident in Counseling

Philosophy of Care

Breanna is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counseling Associate in the state of North Carolina with a Master of Education Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Winthrop University. She has provided clinical services to children, adolescents, and adults ranging from early adulthood to late adulthood in multiple settings. Breanna’s counseling experiences include clients that have various backgrounds and life experiences. She has counseled clients with some of the following concerns: gender exploration, relationship orientation, homeliness, grief/loss, relationship conflict, work/life balance issues, anxiety, depression, and anger management concerns.

Breanna believes that counseling is where an individual has the opportunity to share their thoughts and emotions freely with a trained professional who is skilled in ways to assist the individual with finding a solution to their presenting problem. As your counselor, Breanna’s goal is to provide you, the client, with skills that are developed through a collaboration process. The collaboration process includes setting goals after identifying the main issue, developing a plan to fulfill those goals, and then finding ways of putting that plan to action. Counseling is meant to be an educational experience that helps the client find the answers to their problems without the counselor “fixing” the issue for them. Breanna utilizes a reality therapy/choice theory approach, as well as some cognitive behavioral techniques that focus on adjusting thought patterns to alter faulty behaviors.

Breanna realizes that seeking help is the first step of many to having a more satisfying quality of life. A lack of resources, supports, or insight of a problem can make finding a solution seem almost impossible. Breanna strives to provide a safe and open environment so that clients are able to explore the strengths and values that will work best with creating and living a more meaningful life.
