Hello, I'm Litha Charles

I am the founder of Asheboro Counseling and Wellness, and I am passionate about helping people heal and grow, and addressing the mental health needs of our community. 

 

I am a North Carolina Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Supervisor. I received a Master’s degree in Counseling from Campbell University in 2006, and have worked as a counselor in public school, university, agency, and private practice settings.

 

I work with children, adolescents, and adults with a variety of concerns and offer individual counseling as well as marital/premarital and family counseling. I offer faith-based counseling for those wishing to incorporate their Christian beliefs into the counseling process. 

 

I specialize in working with individuals whose issues include depression, anxiety, chronic concerns or disorders, grief and loss, as well as life transitions, marriage and family issues, complex trauma, and PTSD.

 

I take an integrated approach to counseling, drawing upon a variety of counseling theories and methodologies, including Client-Centered therapy, Attachment Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapies, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Play Therapy for children.  

 

My goal is to always provide a safe place to navigate life's challenges, experience growth, and find solutions through life’s most complex and difficult matters.

Hello, I'm Kristen Morrone

Welcome to the wild and wonderful world of wellness. I’ll be happy to be your guide…

 

Mental Health is a serious issue but that doesn’t mean your path to discovery, exploration, and wellness has to be heavy all the time. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) and a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist Associate (LCAS-A) and I have been trained to help people of all ages address what wellness means to them. 

 

I received a Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in December of 2014 and through the completion of that program became equipped to deal with mental health and substance abuse issues for all ages. In my schooling I specialized in working with children and their families through a certificate in play therapy and have since expanded my certification to address trauma in children and adolescents through Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy(TF-CBT). In recent years I have expanded my work with adults and with substance use. In 2018 I began the process of adding the LCAS to increase my understanding of addiction.

I have had experience and am comfortable addressing mood disorders (anxiety and depression), trauma, self injury, phase of life problems, substance abuse, adjustment and self esteem issues.

 

I have been able to develop my particular style of therapy through a number of different experiences in hospitals, schools, community mental health and crisis centers before arriving at Asheboro Counseling and Wellness. In my style of therapy, I draw techniques from Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused and Narrative approaches. While I am able to incorporate spiritual beliefs into therapy I also am comfortable in addressing personal struggles with religion and spirituality as part of existential beliefs and meaning. Understanding that each person is different and carries with them a different understanding of the world, it is important for me to first get to know clients and their views. To do that, I prioritize the therapeutic relationship at the onset.
