About Kellie Spear, LCMHC, LMFT

I am a dually licensed clinical mental health counselor and marriage and family therapist providing online counseling to residents in North Carolina. My approach to counseling is to meet you where you are and to take you where you want to be. Along the way, there will be obstacles to overcome, and you will have to let go of the things that have gotten in your way. But I will be there to help you make sense of things and to point you in a direction that leads towards healing and wholeness.

When our minds seem to never shut off it can be helpful to spend some time in the present moment you are in. I am guessing that... more
