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.

“If you can dream it, you can do it.” Walt Disney

I have seen people transform their lives in the face of great adversity when they believe in themselves. That is why after 15 years in this field, I remain an eternal optimist. It is also why I believe everyone can benefit from counseling. I believe in building therapeutic relationships with the individuals I serve, because relationships are often one of the biggest challenges people face.

Working with children and adolescents is my passion. Most of the people I have helped have experienced trauma of some kind, and they often are diagnosed with PTSD, anxiety, and/or depression. I am a rostered clinician in the National Child Traumatic Stress Network in Structured Psychotherapy for Adolescents Responding to Chronic Stress (SPARCS). I have worked with children and youth in a group home and in Intensive Alternative Family Treatment, Therapeutic Foster Care, Foster Care, and Adoptions. I also have worked for seven years with individuals diagnosed with disabilities. I have served individuals fighting addiction in a behavioral health and addictions clinic. I have helped people living alternative lifestyles. I understand the dynamics of military families. I understand serious illness.

For the past three years, I have worked at a dual domestic violence and sexual assault agency, where I became a Certified Victim Service Practitioner and a Certified Victims’ Advocate. While there, I learned how to help victims of crime.

I possess a Master of Science Degree in Professional Counseling from Grand Canyon University, a private, non-profit, Christian university in Phoenix, Arizona. Grand Canyon University is currently the largest Christian university in the world. I completed my undergraduate education at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

My approach is Eclectic Therapy, because no two people are the alike. Treating trauma is key. After that, I use often use Person-Centered Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Brief Solution-Focused Brief Therapy for crises.

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.

Vicky’s clinical background includes the Charlie Norwood VA where she worked with Veterans of all ages with PTSD, Depression, and Anxiety. Vicky was trained in Cognitive Processing Therapy, Relaxation Training, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Vicky then worked for a Community Service Board in Georgia, serving low SES populations and treating severe and persistent mental health issues.

Vicky provides services to all ages, children, adolescent, and adults along with couples and family treatment. Vicky’s theoretical orientation includes Reality and Choice Therapy. There are many things in the world we cannot control however there are many elements we can. We do not choose the conditions we are born in or born with, however we do have a choice in how we respond to them. Vicky’s priority with her clients is to help them understand what they are experiencing and what is causing distress in order to make the changes they are looking for and capable of. Vicky attempts to empower clients to feel control over their life and choices to reach their goals. Whatever changes a client wants to make, Vicky is here to walk that journey with them.
