Meet The Therapists 

Hi, I'm Janaya -

Owner & Therapist

 

Schedule - Tuesdays (not accepting new clients)

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I have worked in various settings with individuals who have experienced anxiety, depression, stress, and trauma. I have a special interest in working with clients struggling with self-esteem issues, perfectionism, control issues,  loneliness,“ the need to please” and “finding purpose”. Helping millennials struggling with "quarter-life crisis" is one of my superpowers, adulting can be hard. I am nationally certified in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) which is a trauma-focused therapy. Traumatic experiences can include various forms of abuse and childhood issues.

I love what I do! I have witnessed the healing effects of treatment in my extensive work with individuals. It is a huge step to even be on this site searching for help, you can be “strong” and still need "help". Today you are one step closer and I will walk with you on your journey.

Hi, I'm Cassidi- Therapist & Team LEAD

 

Schedule- Mondays, Wednesdays & Saturdays

I believe that counseling helps others help themselves and is the first step to make the changes they desire. Psychotherapy can help guide you along the path towards self-fulfillment and discovery. My main theoretical approach, as well as techniques used, stem from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I have a passion to work with those struggling with anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, existential issues, and adjustment issues.

My goal as a counselor is to help individuals through challenging moments and experiences in life. I am credentialed as a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC). I have years of counseling experience in outpatient, inpatient, college, and community settings where I worked with children, adolescents, adults, as well as families.

I provide a safe, and judgment-free space where I work collaboratively on goals my clients want to accomplish. Psychotherapy sessions are in a comfortable office environment and I now offer teletherapy (I serve the entire state of North Carolina). You can heal, make the appointment today.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Schedule- Tuesday-Saturday

Starting therapy can be intimidating, but I promise that healing is possible. Change, understanding and clarity are also possible. You may not be the “type” to ask for help, you maybe the “strong one”, the one that has it “all". I am here to tell you it is OK to ask for help, you don't always have to be the “strong one”, I am here for you! Engaging in therapy can support you through life's challenges and can be one of the best decisions you make for yourself and your future.

If you are struggling with unresolved trauma, grief or loss, if you are trying to cope with depression or anxiety or having relationship issues, contact me for an appointment. I specialize in life transitions. I am a compassionate listener and I provide a judgment free, supportive environment to all of my clients.

Hi, I'm Lesli Davis, LCSW-A Therapist 

 

Schedule- Mondays, Wednesdays & Saturdays

I enjoy working with individuals that “get stuck” in their journey in life and enjoy assisting them with getting “un-stuck”. Helping provide client’s with new “tools” to put in their “toolbox” and realizing that they have everything they need to be successful is why I love doing this work.

I truly believe in the therapeutic relationship and believe none of this hard, uncomfortable and oftentimes challenging work can not be done without providing a safe space, while I continue to be present with you and aware of what’s working and not working to “recalibrate” our process.

I am an Associate level Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW-A) and Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist (LCAS-A). I have worked in the human services field for over 15 years.

Hi, I'm Ariel Moone, LCSW-A Therapist 

 

Schedule- Sunday- Wednesday

It is my personal hope that the stigma of counseling and reaching out for help is broken within communities of color. It is a human trait to be flawed, hurt, and need help. I do not believe in suffering in silence or feeling alone in joy or pain. Within my time practicing, I have served individuals and groups who struggle with anxiety, and depression. I feel honored to connect with clients, offer a listening ear, acknowledge clients’ strengths, and provide tools to manage tough situations.

The best part of being a counselor is supporting clients during their struggles and to offer a safe space for clients to speak their truth

I am a licensed clinical social worker associate (LCSW-A). My counseling experience began with an employee assistance program providing telehealth counseling.
