During this Covid Safe at Home time, all sessions are conducted via telehealth. Sessions range from 30 minutes (younger clients) to 60 minutes. Insurance companies continue to cover tele-health during this time, so there should not be an additional charge outside of your typical co-pay. For children under 8, I work with parents and caregivers using Child Parent Relationship Therapy. This allows me to work individually with parents to teach skills so that you may work with your child at home. These skills are lifelong skills, which most find to be extremely helpful!

Having worked in various capacities of the mental health world for the past 12 years, I have had the opportunity to help children and families navigate the stressors of life and address their mental health needs.
Asking for help can be hard. Taking care of yourself must be a priority in order to efficiently care for others. I decided to obtain a Doctorate in Social Work because I have been on both sides: seeking help and being the helper. Let me be your helper! I bring a unique blend of education, training, and life experience that I think will help you to define and meet your goals. We'll start with a safe place and then begin our work on whatever issues you bring. I'm looking forward to meeting you!

Andrews Counseling & Consulting, PLLC was founded in 2016 by Travis & Anthony Andrews. These two brothers were raised in the small town of East Arcadia which is located outside of Wilmington, NC. In their community, the idea of speaking to a therapist was highly unpopular thus causing many of the mental health challenges faced by the community to go unaddressed. They both witnessed how damaging the negative stigma of mental health treatment was to their community and vowed as adults to advocate for mental health awareness, especially in the African American community!

I am a doctoral student at the University of Kentucky in the Department of Education and the Center for Research on Counseling Education. My research focuses on mood disorders, with a specific focus on understudied populations such as individuals with disabilities. I believe that when a counselor recognizes the more significant contextual issues which affect the client's well-being, advocacy in combination with behavioral therapy can be an appropriate intervention for the client.

Child Therapists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
