Jill Strickland, MA, LCMHC

Owner/Therapist

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in the state of North Carolina. I received a B.A. in Psychology from University of Alabama at Birmingham in 1999.  I earned received a Master of Arts in Professional Counseling from Liberty University.  

My training involves individual, family, child, and marriage/couple relationship counseling. In treating anxiety and depression, I am trained in utilizing CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Mindfulness, and DBT(Dialectical Behavioral Therapy). With couples, I explore communication styles, conflict resolution patterns and cycles, and discover new ways of active listening while meeting needs and aligning values. Working alongside a Psychiatrist has provided invaluable experience from different views of behavioral health allowing a wider scope of treatment possibilities to assist us while navigating through your challenges.

In locating the root of the issue, I believe a wholistic journey of healing from the inside out will provide a lasting, happy and fulfilling life.

Jill is a member of the American Counseling Association, Licensed Professional Counselors Association of North Carolina, American Association of Christian Counselors and North Carolina Counseling Association.

Kara Mason,

LCMHC Intern

My name is Kara Mason. I am a graduate intern, enrolled in Liberty University’s Clinical Mental Health program. With God’s grace, I will successfully graduate in December of 2022 and move forward with the full clinical licensure process.

My professional background is rooted in social work. I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Social Work from East Carolina University in 2015. I have experience working with infants, children, and adults in a variety of settings such as inpatient behavioral health services, hospice, hospitals, public health, and local county government.

I am especially versed in working with the aging and disabled population, as well as caregivers who are taking care of loved ones with debilitating illnesses.

I enjoy working from a collaborative and strengths-based approach utilizing Gestalt therapy and Solution Focused therapy (SFT).

Solution focused therapy (SFT) concentrates on helping clients move towards the future that they want and to learn what can be done differently by using existing skills, strategies, and ideas.

Furthermore, I will humbly offer Christian or spiritual based therapy for clients who wish to incorporate their faith into the counseling session.

I am a member of the American Counseling Association (ACA), the North Carolina Counseling Association (NCCA), North Carolina Association for Humanistic Counseling, North Carolina Association for Spiritual, Ethical, Religious, and Value Issues in Counseling, North Carolina Mental Health Counselors Association, and the NC Association for Adult Development and Aging.
