Courtney Coyle, LCSW

At the core of Courtney Coyle’s repertoire of therapeutic styles and techniques is humanistic psychology, an approach that emphasizes viewing the individual as a whole and complete person. She believes that each one of us has the potential to live a happy, meaningful life, full of purpose, creativity and self-expression.

Courtney works with her clients to establish their needs and the most appropriate approach from which to address them. These approaches include methods such as EFST, mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy and solution focused therapy.

Courtney received her education from University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a Master’s in Social Work. She believes that we all have the capacity to live happier and healthier lives, but because of past trauma or current circumstances, we lose sight of our own strengths and uniqueness.  Exploring how a person’s thoughts or beliefs impact their feelings and behaviors is a critical aspect of making changes.  In many cases, uncomfortable feelings and maladaptive behaviors are a result of negative beliefs, and reframing those negative beliefs, whether they are newly formed or decades old, is a skill that can be learned and applied to any aspect of your life.

The career choices that Courtney has made over the years stem from her deep understanding and compassion for that which makes us human. There is not just one path to wellness. Courtney wants to help you discover yours.

Focused on premium care, Courtney offers individual (adult and child), couples and Family therapy including help for:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Couples and marriage counseling
  • Divorce recovery
  • Child therapy
  • Blended families
  • Anger management
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Life changes
  • Self-esteem

Large or frequent life changes can leave us feeling anxious and overwhelmed, leading to difficulties in unrelated areas the most vulnerable of which are our relationships and our creativity. This is all part of what makes us human and these are the issues that we bring to Therapy so that we can address them and move forward into a life full of meaning and joy. Courtney embodies compassion, empathy, and provides encouragement in a supportive environment for individuals to heal emotional wounds and regain their zest for life.

Dana Whitt, LCMHC

Philosophy of Care

Dana helps individuals, couples, and families from all walks of life who are struggling to be the best versions of themselves. This could be due to fragile self-esteem, loss of faith, body image, relational conflict, or social/systemic issues. Dana has advanced skills in treating trauma-related disorders due to single (e.g. sexual assault) or complex trauma (e.g. childhood abuse, neglect), death, bereavement, or loss. Dana uses attachment work and relational constructivist theories to help those who are yearning to be more connected with their hearts, bodies, and minds, and are open to doing the hard and honest work of change.

Dana believes that it is through relationships that we experience our deepest pain, as well as our greatest healing, and she desires to use the therapeutic relationship as a catalyst for change. Dana tailors her approach based on the specific goals and strengths of the client, so that each person experiences therapy that is a good fit for her/him.

When we are struggling in life, feeling stuck, hurt, or alone, we all deserve a place to talk with someone who we know will not judge or shame us, but instead, will walk alongside us and help us find our hope and strength. As Brene´ Brown said, “Only when we’re brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”

David Holbrook, LCMHC

Philosophy of Care

Counseling is something that everyone can benefit from. So, think of therapy as a journey towards healing and wholeness that begins with that first step…so call today and set up your initial consultation.

Your success in counseling will be determined by how much you are willing to expose, accept ownership, forgive, heal, and move forward with the new awareness. It is important to remember that your issue(s) did not happen overnight and that it may take time to notice progress; so be patient as we work toward a new normal in your life.

I work with people from various cultures and backgrounds. I have counseled with children as young as 5, teenagers, young adults, those considered middle aged and senior citizens. I offer a safe place for clients to work through those troublesome issues in an effort to experience peace. I believe in providing unconditional support and will collaborate with you to develop goals that will meet your needs and expectations of therapy.

I counsel with individuals to help them process through challenges such as anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma to name just a few. I enjoy assisting couples who desire to resolve some sort of conflict within the relationship like differences in communication styles, parenting issues, infidelity, finances, and dealing with extended family members. I also like doing premarital counseling in an effort to help the couple become better connected with the other person and more aware of what to expect once married. I teach personalities which can help people understand how others think and why they may respond differently to things they encounter. This can be used in a business with owners and employees, in churches with the leadership and volunteers, in families, with teams, and in a school setting including the principal, all staff, teachers and even the students so get in touch with me if you are interested in investing a few hours towards understanding those you interact with the most with on a daily basis.

Kate Sweatt, LCMHC

Philosophy of Care

How is it that you are doing so well at work or when socializing with your friends, but at home you seem to struggle to do even the most routine mundane things like doing the dishes or taking the time to do your hair? Often you are told you are so amazing or winning at life, but inside you may feel like you can’t do anything right, or you question your worth. Inside you experience a deep-rooted struggle to love yourself and care for yourself the way you know you “should.” Often even after finally deciding to seek counseling, it is still challenging to find a therapist that “gets you.” These days, the struggles of “adulting” or day to day life are often stressful and can seem overwhelming, no matter your age. You deserve to have a safe and supportive environment where you have the opportunity to grow and develop insight into your world and yourself and make yourself a real priority. You will have the opportunity find a balance between your productivity, self-acceptance and love, and meaningful relationships. 

I received my Master of Science degree in Mental Health Counseling in June 2017 from Capella University Online with its site located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. However, I have been in the mental health and substance abuse field since 2007 and I have experience working a broad variety of clientele. My special interests include depression, anxiety, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, stress management/coping skills, self-esteem issues, addiction treatment, anger management, and behavioral disorders. I provide LGBTQ+ affirming and body positive therapy. I utilize integrative models involving cognitive behavioral, person-centered, and solution-focused models. At times I may use motivational interviewing techniques. I may occasionally request that clients do “homework” in order to promote self-exploration and greater insight into particular issues between sessions.

Therapy will be conducted via a HIPAA secure video platform so that sessions can easily fit your schedule without wasting time commuting to an office. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns about the therapy process. I am passionate about helping others with and would be my privilege to help you in your journey.

Schenika Silver, Resident in Counseling

Philosophy of Care

Everyone imagines their lives working out a certain way but what happens when that vision is interrupted by heartaches, disappointments, regrets, and bad decisions. Feelings of hopelessness and despair can overtake us. Even in those moments, there is still hope. There is a new chapter awaiting ahead of you. There are strategies and tools to get you back on track and help you bounce back from life hardships. Then on the flip side, there are moments in life where things are going great and you desire more. In those moments, a helpful hand and an open ear is needed to help you reach your full potential. Schenika is here for both.

Schenika Silver is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate in the state of North Carolina whose priority is to build a partnership with you to create a life of purpose and fulfillment.  She has four years of experience serving children, adolescents, adults and couples seeking help with trauma, depression, anxiety, and life transitions.

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.

I also maintain professional certifications as a Clinical Depression and Mood Disorder Treatment Professional and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional.

My clinical experience includes helping children (aged 5-12), teenagers (aged 13-18) and adults (aged 18+) to develop coping mechanisms and make lifestyle changes to better manage symptoms and difficulties associated with depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, trauma, substance use, etc… My general counseling approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is an approach that challenges you to examine your thinking patterns and identify how they influence your emotional and behavioral responses. To assist you in the best way I can, I also draw techniques from other theoretical approaches such as DBT and motivational interviewing to help reach your goals.

My goal is always to create a safe, accepting and comfortable environment, which can foster growth in self-awareness and self-acceptance and to help the client feel empowered in the therapeutic process. I believe to make lasting progress in therapy, it is important to establish a strong therapeutic relationship with the client through genuine understanding, empathy and unconditional positive regard.
