Chris enjoys educating clients about mental health and how treatment can help.

Chris believes a light-hearted, “human” approach with real conversation works best, and he aims to create an experience that doesn’t feel like your average trip to the doctor or NP. He looks forward to meeting you and helping to live the life you desire and deserve.

Madelyn Gallagher, LCSW

Philosophy of Care

Navigating my own emotional challenges and the support I have received within family dynamics have supported me in understanding the strength and success that can come from nurturing these relationships.

I specialize in providing therapy to individuals (birth to 18) and families. I access all areas of a child’s development and work with the family on identifying appropriate and feasible approaches for managing and improving a child’s social and emotional functioning. I have experience in providing therapeutic services to children and families with difficulties related to family and/or parent-child conflict, child behavior issues, anxiety, depression, attachment disruptions, all areas of trauma, foster care and adoption. I have worked with various family types including: natural, blended, foster, and adoptive.

My passion is early childhood mental health and assisting children and families in creating the most positive atmosphere and relationships to promote healthy development and growth. I feel strongly about the importance of working with the family system in developing secure relationships and consistent and predictable parenting skills.

I support families in identifying the family’s natural strengths and building on these to enhance the connection and bond in parent-child and family relationships.

I am trained in evidenced models of: Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), Parent-Child Interactions Therapy (PCIT), Triple P (Positive Parenting Program), and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). I like to be eclectic in my work by incorporating my knowledge and trainings into a child-centered and family goal focused approach.

The daily stressors of life and difficulty in family functioning can limit our success. I'd love to offer several empirically based strategies for helping you and your child/family to develop effective emotional, behavioral and social habits for life. I am excited to talk more with you about ways I can help you reach your goals!

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.

Tyler Keith, LCSW

Philosophy of Care

I welcome conversation with caregivers and children (ages 0-12), partners or spouses, and adults to address their wants and needs. I have had the opportunity to support those who are learning to manage anxiety, depression, concentration issues, hyperactivity, compliance with authority, aggression, developmental delay, and trauma. I help people understand how the world can be a safe place by supporting the natural strengths and potentials of individuals and relationships. I believe therapy can be a space to heal from hard experiences as an individual or alongside loved ones in safe relationships.

I am uniquely trained in Child Parent Psychotherapy and regularly practice using interventions from Structural Family therapy. Both of these approaches work to support individuals and relationships in feeling more connected and heard throughout conflict. I offer warmth and hope in moments when life feels out of control.

I want others to know, I want you to know, that therapy is a space that is free of judgement. As the world becomes more heated and challenging with difficult decisions and responsibilities, your time spent with me will be a break where you and I, together, can hold the weight that is on your shoulders. You deserve to feel less heavy, less alone.
