I have been a thriving psychology professional with practical experiences in both public and private domains of behavioral health for the past 15 years. My career has ranged from life-threatening crisis care with chronic mentally ill children, adolescents, adults and disrupted families — to those adjusting to difficulties with everyday life, relational problems of marriage and family, or those seeking a confidante to work through personal dilemmas. I am also an accomplished writer and a Board-Certified Clinical Supervisor in the State of NC, guiding other mental health professionals in the industry.
I pride myself on being able to form an honest interpersonal rapport that provides a solid platform for the change process to occur. I have experience with: Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, Mood Swings, Parent-Child Relational Problems, Trauma, Self injury, Anger Management, Substance Abuse, Grief/Loss, and many other areas of mental health.
As of JANUARY 2019: I am excited to expand my practice to include more trusted mental health professionals, introducing the Charlotte area to Cohesive Counseling Associates PLLC. I have nothing but confidence that a member of the Cohesive team can provide you a Private, Professional, and Purposeful experience. VISIT THE WEBSITE: www.drmetate.com
