John McIntyre (LPCA)

johnny MacI am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate with an MA in mental health counseling from Webster University. I also have an MA in humanities from West Virginia State University and enjoyed a lengthy career in the film and television industry before turning my energy toward the path of becoming a therapist. My therapeutic style recognizes the importance of accepting our experiences as well as the power of changing ineffective behavior in the quest to build a worthwhile and satisfying life.

I am a program therapist at Delta specializing in DBT and family therapy. I lead groups in Delta’s Partial Hospital and Intensive Outpatient programs, see individual clients, and work with clients and their families in a clinical setting. I came to DBT with a lengthy history of meditation and mindfulness practice and I encourage and emphasize mindful living as a way to work with emotional pain, relationship conflict, and overwhelming life circumstances. My clinical family work is rooted in improving mindful communication as a means to reducing conflict in relationships.

I currently accept BCBS and self-pay clients.

William J. Holtz (MSEd, LPC)

WilliamI joined Delta Behavioral Health in July 2017. I believe therapy is a cooperative, mutual relationship of respect and acceptance that fosters effective change based on each person’s goals and values.

I received my Masters of Science in Education with a focus in Counseling from Baylor University in Waco, Texas in 1984. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have over 30 years of clinical experience. I also have 12 years of experience in managing mental health/substance use services at the regional and state level. This allows me to be mindful of the interaction of the dynamic and practical aspects of treatment.
I was trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy at Delta Behavioral Health. As a former Marriage and Family Therapist, I received training in family structure, attachment and communication. My clinical experience includes adolescents, adults, families/couples and senior adults who are experiencing mental health, substance use and dual diagnosis populations. I have worked in inpatient, outpatient, partial hospital and administrative settings.

In my current practice I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) or DBT-informed approaches for the treatment of depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, relationship issues, parenting, sexuality and spirituality. I also work with individuals who are dually diagnosed – experiencing both mood and substance use issues. I work primarily with adults in Individual therapy and enjoy working with couples and families.

David Brenner (MPAS, PA-C)

DavidI am a psychiatric physician assistant with 16 years’ experience in a variety of settings, including hospital-based and office-based practices.

I specialize in medication management of a variety of mental health conditions. These include, but are not limited to, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, schizophrenia, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorders, and certain personality disorders. As mental health issues often stem from biological and psychological factors, I may also recommend talk therapy or lifestyle modifications.

I treat each patient as an individual and work collaboratively to create and maintain a medication regimen that best suits you. My goal is to address your unique concerns with compassion and arrive at treatment plan that maximizes your functioning and satisfaction with life.

I currently accept Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO*, Cigna, Medicare, United Healthcare, and self-pay.

*Please note that I am not part of the Blue Value Network and am unable to accept patients with Blue Value at this time.

Julie Small (PMHNP/BC)

Julie I am a psychiatric nurse practitioner with over 10 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 5 grandchildren.
