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.

Carmen J. Reynolds, LCMHC

Philosophy of Care

Carmen J. Reynolds is a North Carolina Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor. She is a double graduate of Wake Forest University earning a Bachelor's degree in Sociology and a Master’s degree in Counseling. She has over 20 years of counseling and human services experience.  

Carmen uses a variety of techniques and works from an eclectic theoretical system. Therapeutic focus includes family system work; personal responsibility; exploring how values and beliefs impact goal setting; developing coping skills; and understanding how emotions and thoughts impact behavior and change. She offers assistance with mood disorders, social issues, relationship concerns, divorce recovery, personal growth issues, self-esteem, trauma, parenting issues, diversity/multicultural issues, women’s issues, adjustment challenges, and family of origin issues. She has a special interest in supporting parents of children who were born prematurely (or who are medically fragile) as well as those who have experienced challenging pregnancies.  

Carmen’s mission is to motivate people to create more balanced, authentic lives. She believes therapy is cooperative and collaborative -- a mixture of expression, encouragement, enlightenment, empowerment, and action. The therapeutic process identifies, emphasizes, and utilizes personal resources.

Christopher Betley, PMHNP

Philosophy of Care

Christopher Betley is a board-certified Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) with broad experience in caring for individuals of all ages and backgrounds. He completed his Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) at UNC-Charlotte and Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) at East Carolina University. Chris specializes in psychiatric (mental health) medication management for a wide variety of conditions.

Chris enjoys educating clients about mental health and how treatment can help. He closely partners with his clients to design and implement a personalized treatment plan while helping to boost confidence and resilience along the way. If medication is recommended, he takes time to ensure an understanding of how, why, and where it fits into the plan.

Chris believes a light-hearted, “human” approach with real conversation works best, and he aims to create an experience that doesn’t feel like your average trip to the doctor or NP. He looks forward to meeting you and helping to live the life you desire and deserve.

Clair Crow, LCMHC

Philosophy of Care

Clair Crow is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in the state of North Carolina with nearly 5 years of professional experience providing therapeutic care for adult individuals and couples with various mental health issues including depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, life transitions, grief and trauma. She completed her Bachelor of Arts in Ministry in 2013 and received her Master of Arts in Counseling with a focus on Marriage, Couple & Family Counseling in 2017, both from MidAmerica Nazarene University in Olathe, KS.

Clair believes a major marker of success in therapy greatly depends on creating a strong therapeutic rapport right from the start. She does this by empathizing with and validating her clients, creating a sense of trust and safety. Clair naturally practices from Emotion-Focused and Attachment-based theories, however she is easily able to utilize other approaches such as dialectical behavior, mindfulness based and cognitive behavioral therapies depending on the specific and unique needs of individuals and couples who seek her care.

Clair strives to provide a warm and caring environment in which you feel and believe that you are known, heard, and valued. Her desire is to meet you exactly where you are at and then work together to create a life of meaning, wholeness and restoration.

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.
