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.

“Mental health problems don’t define who you are.  They are something you experience. You walk in the rain and you feel the rain but, more importantly, You Are Not The Rain.”- Matt Haig

Courtney Houston is a caring, compassionate, and empathetic Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP-BC) in the state of North Carolina who has over 9 years of healthcare experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and older adults seeking help with depression, anxiety, self-esteem & shame issues, abuse & neglect, college age & young adult transitions, PTSD, and trauma.  She completed her Registered Nursing degree from Temple College and received her master’s degree as Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner from Walden University as an honors student. She is a member of American Psychiatric Nurses Association, the American Nurses Association, and the Sigma Theta Tau International Honors Society.

Courtney’s goal is to use a collaborative treatment approach with her clients by considering the unique needs of each client.

She utilizes a combination of medication management and psychotherapy when necessary by implementing cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, motivational, and solution focused therapy techniques.

Her hope is you no longer have to struggle alone, for her to hear your story and help shoulder the pain, making the therapeutic process a sacred place where you can be seen, heard, and validated. If you are a person suffering from depression, anxiety, and/or trauma, ask to speak with Courtney. She wants to see you heal and grow to feel like a whole person who is thriving in life!

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.
