Dana Whitt
Self Pay Rate: $99

Dana Whitt, LCMHC

Philosophy of Care

Dana helps individuals 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.”

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

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.

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.

Stephanie Richardson, LCMHC, LCAS

Philosophy of Care

I graduated from Frostburg State University located in Frostburg, Maryland with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology in 2011 and a Master of Science Degree in Counseling Psychology in 2015. I am currently licensed in North Carolina as a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist. 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.
