I believe that therapy begins with an open and trusting environment where a client feels safe and respected. I find it important to always put the needs of the client first, supporting them and helping them discover the positive attributes they have inside. I believe in a welcoming and relaxed therapeutic approach to help support individuals on their life journey. By providing empathy and a judge free environment, I hope to diligently work with others and support them along their journey and help meet their goals.
Often times life can be challenging and many of us are not prepared to deal with those issues and find ourselves in an unfamiliar place. As a therapist, I am dedicated to providing individualized care to meet your needs. I've worked with children and adults in the mental health field for over 16 years and individuals with addiction for over 8 years. I've treated individuals with various mental health and substance use disorders. My experience enables me to offer effective, individualized outpatient psychological care. I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, interpersonal challenges and addiction.

I provide services to individuals dealing with depression, anxiety, mood disorders and PTSD. With this, I acknowledge each person's needs and am able to modify approaches to assist them in meeting their goals. These goals can be modest in approach from the beginning and once someone is ready, we can dig in deeper to the healing process or if someone prefers, we can take an assertive and swift approach to addressing goals. Treatment may vary as I am eclectic in approach. With flexible approaches, this means my clients will have the opportunity to work with therapy animals, have nature based experiences, or relax indoors in sessions.

While many people can transition gracefully, others may feel like their world has been turned upside down resulting in stages of emotional discomfort, mourning, or fear, leaving them feeling overwhelmed, anxious, & even depressed. I primarily work with those suffering from the difficulties of major life transitions. This can look very different for many! Whether you're a new parent, struggling to conceive, learning how to live on your own for the first time, grieving the loss of a loved one or relationship, or trying to find a new meaning to life as you enter retirement, I'm honored you've chosen me to help you on this journey.
I believe that everyone can benefit from having a therapist in their lives. Whether this is your first time starting therapy, or you are transitioning therapists, I want you to feel as welcomed, comfortable, and safe as possible in this space. I recognize that it is not easy to be vulnerable, especially with someone new. If we work together, this space will be for YOU to decide what we process in sessions, what goals we work towards, and what symptoms you want to manage. The therapeutic process takes time to build and I am here to move at a pace that feels right for you.

Welcome! My name is Lamar Whidbee and I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate in North Carolina. I believe that the journey to healing, self- acceptance and sustainability is beautiful. Many men, specifically Black men, have been conditioned to ignore emotional responsibility while internalizing most emotion. I strive to advocate for Black men in the mental health space, as I am aware of the stigmas that disconnect Black men from mental health support. My greatest joy in a session is to see my client set free from the issues that previously restricted them.

I am a country girl with a big heart; two qualities that have served me well as a mental health/substance abuse (MH/SA) professional. I first went to college as a math major. After working with at-risk adolescents in group homes my purpose became clear to me; I am a social worker at heart. I earned my BSW from NCSU and my MSW from UNC-Chapel Hill. My passion is working with families using systems theory; MH/SA issues are likely not due to one specific individual or event. But I work with individuals and couples as well.
You have to take care of you before you can take care of someone else. Make your life a true reflection of who you are. My practice is dedicated to creating a partnership in addressing the issues which brought you initially to seek therapy. I will assist in defining, establishing and achieving your goals. Therapy can play a supportive role in a variety of areas. Therapy provides professional feedback; confidentiality; a safe and comforting environment; encouragement; and guided direction and focus. It can assist you in gaining the control back over your life and developing a healthier self-esteem.

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years of experience. I believe that everyone has the ability to change and improve themselves and their circumstances given the right opportunity and the right support. My goal is to provide a safe and trusting environment for my clients to grow while at the same time improving their mental health and their relationships with the people around them.
Life can be painful. Therapy doesn’t have to be. Many people see therapy as one-sided, with little opportunity for interaction or getting to experience each other as real people. I can promise you that I am as real as it gets! I want to help you achieve the solutions and life changes you are looking for while enjoying the process as much as possible. Calling therapist can be intimidating, but I hope you will take a moment (and maybe a deep breath) to call and see how I can help.
Life is challenging. Sometimes we need professional support to help us navigate our way back to full recovery. Let me help you. I enjoy working with individuals who are trying to make sense of their lives. Whether it involves issues concerning anxiety, depression, stress, anger, life transition(s), academic/work performance, or other personal challenges, I will provide you with a supportive and safe space to assist you in gaining insight into your life.
