Carol Counts Robinson, PsyD, ANP-BC, PMHNP-BC

Philosophy of Care

Carol Counts Robinson was a PhD clinical psychologist for 15+ years in a variety of settings including medical and psychiatric inpatient settings, psychiatric outpatient settings, and the emergency room doing assessments on patients in crisis. She often worked with patients struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, and substance abuse using cognitive-behavioral techniques to address their struggles. While working in the emergency room setting, she became increasingly interested in psychotropic medications and medical procedures. With her love of the medical field growing, she decided to pursue nursing school. After graduation from nursing school, she had the opportunity to work in a variety of settings including ICU, medical/surgical units, and alcohol/drug treatment centers. As had been her original plan, she pursued an Adult Nurse Practitioner degree as a means of increasing her knowledge of medical conditions and treatments. With this training, she worked in settings such as Hospice, community health centers, and psychiatric outpatient clinics. She then pursued her Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner degree and certification to increase her expertise in this area. For the last 9 years, she has worked in a outpatient psychiatric mental health center providing needed services via telehealth and in person.

Because of her history as a psychologist and as an experienced prescriber of psychiatric medications, Carol brings a unique combination of skills. She uses her down-to-earth personality, warmth, interest in the strengths of the patient, and her sense of humor to connect with patients and explore their goals for treatment.

Carol recognizes that each individual determines the treatment decisions that are best for them. She prefers to act as a consultant with some expertise in counseling and medications, offering her experience and expertise in guiding them toward living their best life. She provides education and resources for helping them make evidence-based decisions regarding the best choices for their situation.

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.
