Anne Miller, LCMHC, NCC
It is Anne’s belief that life presents challenges that ultimately can be building blocks for growth and self discovery. As individuals process these sometimes uncomfortable changes in their lives, they may become unsure of their own unique path. In Anne’s counseling style she acknowledges, with warmth and understanding, this common human concern. 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. Building on their strengths and resources, she encourages goal setting and interventions that help clients live more fulfilled and satisfied lives. Using an eclectic approach, which combines Person-Centered, Cognitive-Behavioral, Reality Therapy, Feminist Therapy and Solution Focused Brief Counseling, Anne adapts the theoretical styles to meet the diverse needs of clients. Techniques include individual and small group counseling, helping clients recognize their own compentencies and finding a solution. Anne enjoys working with people of all ages and feels a particular affinity with adolescents. She has active memberships in the American School Counselor’s Association and the North Carolina School Counselor’s Association.
Anne earned her Master of Education in Counseling from North Carolina State University (May, 2008), a Master of Arts in Asian Studies from Cornell University (August, 1986) and a Bachelor of Science in Human Development and Family Studies from the College of Human Ecology at Cornell University (May, 1978).

Renee Avis, LCMHC
Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor
People ask me why I love the work I do so much.
I love the work that I have done with others and will do with you for several reasons…..
- Having the privilege of guiding you through moments of uncertainty, anxiety and discomfort to places of balance and inner peace.
- Meeting you where you are in your struggles. From there we work on building a trusting, connected and recovery focused journey.
- Guiding you through your journey. Challenging and supporting you through this journey can include, eating disorders, body image, postpartum depression/anxiety and struggles you may face with being a woman/girl in this world that can be difficult to navigate.
A Bit About Me
I believe it is important you know a little bit about me before coming in to your first therapy session. Knowing a few things about me, and what is important to me in the work we will do together will, I hope, lower any of the anxiety you may have about starting your personal journey.
I grew up near the beach and have always felt a sense of peace and happiness when my toes are in the sand and I am watching and listening to the waves role onto the beach. I have created my office so that I can share this sense of peace and calmness with you in each session that we spend together.
I spent my Undergraduate years living in the Northern Virginia area truly enjoying my time at George Mason University, where I received my BA in Psychology.
A little more than a year after graduating from GMU, my husband and I found ourselves in Atlanta, Georgia working on our graduate degrees. I received my Masters in Counseling from Argosy University.
I have since spent the last 11 years happily working in treatment facilities and private practice fulfilling my passion as a therapist.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker
“Let go of who you think you’re supposed to be; embrace who you are.”
– Brene’ Brown
Welcome! My name is Karen Blythe; I obtained my Master’s degree of Social Work in 2015 from Western Carolina University (WCU), with a concentration in substance abuse studies. I obtained my B.S. in Psychology with a minor in Social Work from WCU in 2005. I fell in love with the Appalachian Mountains, living and working in a variety of rural mental health settings until my recent move to the Raleigh area.With over 14 years of experience in the mental health field, ranging from residential/enhanced services for children/adolescents to intensive substance abuse counseling and basic outpatient services with adults, I have found it incredibly rewarding to support anyone- be it individuals, families, or couples- in their journey towards recovery and wellness and I enjoy working with all ages (3 to 300)!
With my therapeutic strengths of engagement, individualized evidenced-based interventions, and a little humor, I find joy assisting those seeking healing from a variety of mental health and substance use disorders including anxiety, depression, oppositional defiance, addiction, anger management, trauma, and transitional life stressors. I have found the theoretical models of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and EMDR to be paramount in promoting wellness. I believe strongly in the strengths perspective and empowering individuals to acknowledge and expand on their own unique capabilities, utilizing a variety of interventions to promote openness of expression.
When I am not working, you may find me exploring the many Greenways and parks with my husband, our two young daughters, and our dogs Reggie and Ducky. I enjoy dancing and appreciate local musicians, trying out new restaurants, reading, and thrifting. I am looking forward to exploring all the Triangle has to offer and joining with incredible people on their journey towards a better future!
