Then we can help you to develop positive skills and coping strategies that empower you to grow and thrive.

CHILD AND FAMILY COUNSELING

Family therapy is designed to identify family patterns that contribute to a behavior disorder or mental illness and help family members break those habits.
 
Family therapy  typically involves goals around improving communication, solving family problems, understanding and handling special family situations, and creating a better functioning home environment.
 

Individual Children’s therapy includes individuals ages 6-17. Our goal is to help children through providing a safe space to share their feelings, understand them, and problem solve.

ADDICTION COUNSELING

Addiction is an inability to stop using a substance or engaging in a behavior even though it is causing psychological, social, and/or physical harm.  Addiction can include and is not limited to using/misusing/abusing mind or mood altering drugs, addictive levels of social media use, sexualized behaviors, and /or gambling behaviors. 

Addiction counseling is an evidence-based treatment that improves your ability to identify and change negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that enable an addiction.  Evidenced based practices we use during outpatient treatment include a combination of Psycho-education, Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapeutic (ACT).  

3C Wellness also partners with Certified Substance Abuse Professionals (SAPs) to provide individual outpatient substance abuse services for individuals who have experienced a drug and/or alcohol Department of Transportation (DOT) violation.

A SAP is a Certified Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) evaluates employees who have violated a DOT drug and alcohol regulation and makes recommendations concerning education, treatment, follow-up testing, and aftercare.

RELATIONAL TRAUMA

Relational trauma refers to trauma that happens within a close relationship. This can be the result of abuse, neglect, abandonment, or enmeshment. This can occur in adult relationships as well as when there are traumatic interactions between caregivers and children during critical development phases. These interactions impact the child’s brain and create negative attachments that shape the way the child interacts with others throughout their life. We help you navigate and overcome through holding a safe space for therapy to occur.

Executive Counseling

EXECUTIVE COUNSELING

We help professionals, entrepreneurs, and company leaders reveal, confront, and heal from challenges and barriers that interfere with work life balance, work performance, and self-esteem. 

When you are invigorated by meeting and exceeding goals in the workplace, pouring yourself into your work, being successful; or vice versa, you are unmotivated to work, unable to focus, feeling overwhelmed, etc;  it is not uncommon for things outside of work, that are equally if not more important, to suffer. This can include relationships, freedom, physical and mental health. Why is that and can I change that, you ask? 

There is something called cognitive dissonance; meaning ” I know this, I believe that, but my actions are not aligning with it and I am struggling to change it”. Through an eclectic use of therapeutic modalities, our role is to help you explore and understand underlying core beliefs and emotions that may be contributing the dissonance interfering with work-life harmony.

YOUNG ADULT AND COLLEGE STUDENT COUNSELING

Adulting is getting harder. Maybe you are a non-traditional student returning to college later in life; a parent contemplating your next move professionally; a young adult uncertain about their career path; or a young professional navigating ageism in the workplace.

Whatever stage you are in, there is a reciprocal relationship between work , life, and emotional well-being. As an adult today, you have navigated things that no one could have prepared you for within the past few years. For example, economic stress from the cost of living increasing faster than wages; impacts of COVID on learning institutions, family, finances, death(s), health, travel, etc. Things that were once somewhat “plannable”  have become ambiguous ( i.e. graduating, vacations, going to prom, going to school on campus, work commutes etc).

These uncontrollable things may have you assessing where you are and where you are going in life, and in turn impacting you emotionally. If you feel you are losing control, lacking in direction, feeling unmotivated, your school/work performance and productivity has been impacted by life transitions, we see you.

Let us help address the emotional wellness aspect and support you in gaining direction and control.

Brainspotting Therapy

BRAINSPOTTING THERAPY

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aczAGpv0dqA Brainspotting Therapy is primarily focused on discovering and alleviating trauma, and can help many different types of issues, especially since trauma’s effects are so far-reaching. This includes: anxiety, depression, substance abuse, chronic pain, attachment issues. 

“Where you look impacts how you feel”. Brainspotting locates points in your visual field that help to access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain. 

Ashley is now accepting clients for Brainspotting. The typical cost of each session will be $180 for a 60 min session and $150 for 45 min session. However through the end of the year, the cost will be $150 for 60 min session and $120 for 45 min session.

WALK AND TALK THERAPY

Have you ever said to yourself, “I need to step outside to get my thoughts together?”

You are not alone. There is scientific evidence that shows being outside and getting fresh air can help relieve stress; in return this can help you to think more clearly. 

Why not combine physical exercise with mental health? Some people enjoy the experience of movement while talking or feel more comfortable talking side-by-side, rather than sitting face-to-face in an office.  Walk and Talk therapy may be a great option for people who exhibit a lot of excess energy during sessions or for those who feel uneasy with maintaining direct eye contact and sitting still. Some therapists have noted that physical movement encourages psychological movement, and can even accelerate client breakthroughs.”(L. Diethelm, 2020)

Walk-and-talk is a form of psychotherapy or consultation while walking outdoors in public places. I offer walk-and-talk sessions as an optional treatment modality. Walking sessions typically take place in North, South, South West Charlotte. The location and date is discussed with the client and not advertised for confidentiality purposes. 

If you’re interested, we’ll decide beforehand if it’s clinically appropriate for your situation. Walk-and-talk sessions can be used intermittently or regularly, and may be discontinued at any time.
