April Mizell, Resident in Counseling

Philosophy of Care

“How are you really doing?” Does this question make you nervous? Does this sound familiar to you? "I'm so overwhelmed. I'm too busy to even take a breath. It's so hard to stay patient and calm because I have too much in my head." So often our lives are crowded, overfull and overwhelming, and in turn block us from being able to find fulfillment. Are you stressed, worried, feeling depressed? Facing a difficult situation? Concerned about yourself, your relationships, your family? Life stressors can be overwhelming. They can also be opportunities for discovery, change and growth. The decision to seek counseling can be the first step to learn new ways to approach and overcome problems. You are not “crazy” if you are seeking therapy; everyone needs it sometime in their lives.  Maybe you just need help establishing boundaries?

There are different types of psychotherapy, such as cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy, and Client-Centered Therapy. My approach to counseling is "eclectic" - meeting the unique needs of clients - providing a supportive wholistic approach to resolve problems and foster growth.

My goal as your therapist is to assist you in slowing things down and seeing them from a different perspective.  Then helping you to see what is more meaningful for you and establish healthy boundaries. Finding someone to truly see and hear us is often where we find healing. In doing this, we can restore hope in the future, realign with the values and desires we hold most dear, and connect more deeply and more meaningfully with those around us. It's my hope to help you along the way to feeling restored to yourself, your family, and your life. Let's talk.

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

Sherri Osborne, PMHNP-BC, GNP-BC

Philosophy of Care

Sherri Osborne is a board certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP-BC) and a board certified Gerontological Nurse Practitioner (GNP-BC) who has 12 years of experience in working with adults seeking help with medication management for mental health conditions.

As a provider who has personally experienced trauma, domestic violence, and the effects of being the child of an alcoholic parent and a military family, Sherri understand the issues surrounding these and the importance of resiliency. She also has a crisis-based background and sees the effects that mental health and substance abuse have on the individual and their families. Sherri believes that faith, in whatever manner you choose to practice, helps give one strength to become a survivor and not a victim.

Sherri completed her Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) at Guilford Technical Community College, her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) at Winston-Salem State University, and both her Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) and her PMHNP at the University of South Alabama. Sherri utilizes a holistic 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. Sherri's goal is never 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. Everyday life can be hard and stressful and having someone there to support you in that journey can mean a lot. The goal is for each day to be the best it can be fo
