Julie Small (PMHNP/BC)

Julie I am a psychiatric nurse practitioner with 6 years of experience working with adults in outpatient mental health clinics. I perform comprehensive psychiatric assessments, diagnose, recommend treatment, and when appropriate, prescribe medication in treating a wide range of mental health and brain disorders including depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, PTSD, anxiety, OCD, personality disorders, ADHD, and intellectual/developmental disabilities. As mental health disorders can have their origin in biological and psychological factors, medication management may be one modality in your treatment. I also recommend individual therapy, DBT group therapy, EMDR, healthy eating habits, and various forms of exercise including yoga and Thai Chi.

I worked as a registered nurse for over 30 years prior to going back to school to complete my master’s degree in psychiatric nursing from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I count it a privilege and a blessing to work together with a client to choose the best fit of treatments in the process of building a life worth living.
Although we are originally from Kentucky, my husband and I have lived in the New Hanover County area since 1990 with a brief 3 years spent in Minneapolis, Minnesota. North Carolina was calling us back! I enjoy spending time outdoors, walking and gardening. I also like reading fiction, practicing yoga, and spending time with friends and our family; 3 sons, 2 daughter in laws, and 4 grandchildren.

Guendner, Eric (MA, LPA, LCAS-A)

After retiring from the United States Marine Corps, I embarked on a new goal to become a psychologist and serve my community in a different capacity. Although a new practitioner, I bring much life experience to meet you where you are. I focus on implementing skills and behaviors with you to use in your life to move you toward your goals of living a life worth living.

I received both my BA in Psychology and MA in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Substance Abuse Treatment Psychology at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. I am currently seeking licensure as a Psychological Associate and a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist. As part of my requirements for my MA and licensure, I completed my internship here at Delta and was involved with the Partial Hospitalization and Mental Health/ Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program. I have also received Foundational Training in DBT by Behavioral Tech. Upon graduation and licensure, I am continuing to work for the facility programs at Delta and have begun my individual practice.

Currently my two roles at Delta are Facility Programs Therapist for the Partial Hospital Program, Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program and the Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program. This involves conducting intakes, facilitating group, providing individual therapy and case management as well as crisis interventions. In my private practice, I primarily use Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with adults. My specialties include working with individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder, Mood Disorders, Anxiety Disorders and Substance Use Disorders. My unique combination of Military and Psychology experience supports the specific needs of First Responders, Law Enforcement Officers and Veterans.
