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.

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.

Courtney Houston, MSN, PMHNP-BC

Philosophy of Care

“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 is a strong believer that everything we do makes sense in the context of our experiences and how they have impacted our personal identities and relationships with those around us. 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.
