LizThere are a lot of therapeutic modalities out there! My approach is to cater to what you need. I like to take time to get to know each of my clients and gain an understanding of what your needs are. I view my approach as collaborative, person centered and goal oriented. I have experience working with children, teenagers and adults. My specialties include using MI and CBT. I am also extensively trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). This type of modality is useful to gain understanding and coping with intense emotions. In addition to that, I provide Eye movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. This can be a useful tool to process anything our brains decide to keep activated yet hold us back from being in the present moment. Feel free to reach out and inquire about these services, I look forward to working together!

Kimberly Horrell MA, NYS LMHC, NC LCMHC-A

Over the course of 20+ years I have had the pleasure of helping people work through a variety of situations and witnessed people find hope, healing and lasting solutions. I utilize evidenced based counseling techniques while providing a safe, non-judgmental, caring environment.

I obtained my Bachelor of Science (BS) in Community and Human Services from Empire State University in 2004 and Master of Arts (MA) in Marriage and Family Therapy through Liberty University in 2008. Over the course of my career I have had many titles including: mobile therapist/behavior specialist, family/marriage advocate, mental health consultant, and mental health counselor. For the majority of my professional life I operated a private practice in New York State. Since moving to North Carolina, I have opened a private practice called Confident Hope Counseling and developed the Confident Hope Curriculum. In the curriculum people explore their design, biblical truth and are taught various practical skills to address life’s challenges.

My counseling style is guided by my Christian beliefs and biblical principles. I take a holistic approach that takes into account mind/body connections and allows for exploration of the person as a whole including their physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and relational needs. I believe that each person and situation is unique; therefore each therapy experience is tailored to your specific needs. Depending on which skill sets and interventions have been proven to best address your issues, you will learn from the Gottman Method, Mind/Body Techniques, Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFST), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Trauma Informed-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TI-CBT) and/or Narrative Therapy (NT).

I look forward to the opportunity to partner with you on your journey.

Megan I am a graduate of the University of North Carolina Wilmington, where I received both my BA in Psychology and MA in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Substance Abuse Treatment. Prior to attending graduate school, I worked at a mental health facility doing administrative work and continued to realize my passion and strong desire to continue pursing my career as a clinician.

While pursuing my MA, I worked part-time at Crossroads where I conducted drug and alcohol interventions with college students. Per the requirements for my MA and license, I completed my internship at Delta Behavioral Health and was subsequently hired upon completing my internship. I primarily work with facility programs conducting DBT skills groups for Partial Hospital Program, Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program, and Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program, providing individual therapy, conducting intake assessments, and conducting crisis interventions. I also provide individual therapy with adults and adolescents for my outpatient practice.

I recently attended a DBT foundational training through the Behavioral Tech Institute and am currently working towards certification as a foundationally trained DBT clinician. Although I work with individuals with a variety of mental health struggles, my specialties include working with adolescents engaging in risk-taking behaviors, self-harm, suicidal thinking, anxiety and mood disorders and adults with Mood Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Substance Use Disorders, and Borderline Personality Disorders.
