Ashley Barber-Brown, LCMHC

Philosophy of Care

Struggling to survive and other days thriving without effort? Struggling to get through the week, day or even hour? You are not alone, and you shouldn’t feel ashamed. We all need some guidance and direction at times. Not because we are weak but because sometimes, we get tired of being strong, and guess what? That is perfectly okay.

Let’s just sit and talk. No pressure, no expectation, no right or wrong way. Just talk. Breathe and release. Sometimes we find it difficult to express ourselves because we can’t find the words. No need to find anything just release what you have inside. This will be a judgement free zone where your inner most secrets and thoughts can be brought to surface for healing. You don’t need to be an expert at your feelings just willing to have some release. 

Working with depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders or just regular daily stressors can seem so overwhelming, good news you don’t have to experience it alone. You may be having relationship struggles, challenges with the all so ever-changing world and just tired of being tired. Again, no need to experience it alone. Let Ashley guide you to a wonderful coping strategy of breathing and releasing.

Brice Bradshaw, MS, LCMHC

I am a firm believer that anyone can benefit from therapy.  I also think people have a natural tendency to want to be their best selves, but that at times things get in the way.  My job is to help people realize their own potential, building on strengths that are already present and teaching coping skills along the way.  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is regularly incorporated into therapeutic practice to help people break free from negative/self-destructive thought patterns.  I also draw from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to help with emotion regulation issues and interpersonal struggles.

My experience as a counselor began when I started at the NC State University Counseling Center in 2013.  Since then I have worked in inpatient hospitalization as well as private practice.  I enjoy working with a diverse group of clients who seek counseling for any number of issues that may be troubling them.  I currently work with adults, adolescents and children in individual, couples, group and family appointments.

Finding a counselor you connect with contributes greatly to therapeutic success.  By learning about my client’s lives and struggles I gain a greater sense of their thought patterns and behavioral motives.  I appreciate the trust it takes to share these things with someone unfamiliar.  Being allowed to provide a non-judgmental environment along with empathy sets the stage to build self-awareness, self-esteem and self-confidence.  I look forward to working with you in the near future!

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.

“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.
