She uses empathy and active listening to assure clients of her partnership to help them discover and navigate as they work through difficulties in their lives.

Amanda Smith, LCSW
Hello! My passion is working with clients to help them reach their goals of self-love, acceptance, and establishing a life that they love – which looks different for everyone! We will first work to build our therapeutic alliance, then begin to identify and explore cyclical behaviors, patterns, and past experiences that are currently impacting your life. Through the practice of unconditional positive regard, you are completely accepted for wherever you are emotionally – whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, impulsiveness, self-esteem, and more. Allow me to meet you where you are and walk alongside you in healing.
I utilize whichever techniques are the most beneficial for each individual client. These techniques are catered specifically to where the client is on their journey in healing. The most important tool will be our therapeutic relationship, which requires us to be the right fit and to trust each other.
Starting therapy can be both terrifying and a relief at the same time, and that is okay. Your feelings are valid and important, as are you. If you are looking to make a change, please do not hesitate to contact me, I would love to help however I am able to!
I currently accept Aetna, Cigna, Oscar Health, Oscar, and UnitedHealthcare (UHC/UBH).
Tekeyla Jones, LCMHCA
Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor – Associate
I believe we all are on a path of continuous growth and self-discovery. My goal is to support you on your journey by utilizing a person centered approach to ensure that you have a safe space to be open and reflective. Counseling involves building a relationship between you and I. In this way, we will be able to work together to change feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. As your counselor, I am here to help you learn ways to cope through life’s challenges.I have been trained in a variety of counseling theories. However, I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and borrow techniques from Solution Focused Brief Therapy. This is done in order for you to get the best out of our time together.
I have over 10 years of experience working with children and teenagers and young adults as a school counselor and school administrator. In addition, I have worked in an inpatient mental health facility. I completed my undergraduate work at Shaw University and my graduate studies at both East Carolina University and North Carolina State University. In my spare time I love vacationing with my husband and two sons or cuddling on the couch with a good book.
