Faith Dulin
My Children were Faith Dulin's clients. They started telling me horrible things that she was saying about me so I set up a meeting to talk with her and the owner of the office she was working for. The owner joined in by telephone. when I asked her why she had told my children lies about me she totally flipped out, yelling at me and even hung up on the owner so she could yell more. She was fired from that counseling center and the owner called me and apologized. My children still go to that center but will forever be damaged because of this woman! DO NOT SEEK HER AS YOUR CHILDS COUNSELOR! If you search her you will see she has been employed with several centers, there is a reason for that!!!!!!

Preston Counseling
Preston Counseling was a pleasure to work with. Mr. Preston was helpful, a good listener, empathetic and had great feedback over the course of several weeks. I went to him for depression after a bad break up. I learned new coping skills that I will hopefully use for a lifetime. Preston Counseling was the best Counseling place I've ever been to!

Preston Counseling
Greg is a great listener, which is hard to find these days. Its comforting because I can go on and on, and find myself going on tangents. He has been able to have me focus on, with self-guidance on what ails me . Over the last few months, its been a positive experience in being able to uncover, work out, and develop change. I would highly recommend!

Preston Counseling
I have worked with Greg Preston for over a year to overcome challenges with depression, anxiety and low self-esteem. Today I feel I am back on my feet again, calm and confident. Greg helped me tremendously. He is patient, never tiring of my repetitious negative thinking and ready to listen closely even if we have already gone over strategies to resolve the obstacles. One particular strength is his endless ability to reframe even my most bleak and entrenched thoughts. He commands a large toolbox of strategies and perspective altering thought experiments and anecdotes. These have helped me break out of negative thought patterns or choose life-fulfilling options over life-limiting behavior. Don’t let an easy-going, easily approached, and fun personality mask Greg’s rigor and training; he is very well read. I strongly recommend Greg based on my experiences as a twenty-something man overcoming depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem.

Zero Stars. Unprofessional. Repeatedly violated the Code of ethics of the NASW. A shill and a hired gun for Family Law firms in Charlotte NC. Avoid at all costs.

I was really nervous for my first counseling session but Emily was so warm and welcoming I quickly relaxed and felt comfortable opening up to her. Now I look forward to my sessions as an opportunity to unload what I'm dealing with in life.

Therapy Charlotte: Nicole Saunders, LCSW
Nicole is an amazing therapist. When I moved to Charlotte, I really needed someone to help me work through the transition and help clarify my personal goals. Nicole was very supportive, caring, and non-judgmental while also giving me direct feedback. I don't know where I'd be without her.

Tips & Advices
Group counseling is when one or more counselors lead a group discussion, usually between five and 15 people. The group may focus on a shared experience or situation, and provide support and encouragement to the other attendees.
Each state defines its own requirements for what licenses and education are needed to be a counselor. It's common for counselors to have a bachelor's degree in psychology or a similar field, as well as a master's degree. After that, counselors should obtain their state license, and can move on to achieving other licenses like the:
  • National Certified Counselor (NCC) license
  • Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) license
  • Master Addictions Counselor (MAC) license
  • Forensic Health Evaluators (FHE) license
  • Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) license
  • Certified Family Therapist (CFT) license
This all depends on the patient's goals and circumstances. Some people are happy with their results after just a few sessions; others continue to meet with their counselors for years. There is no right or wrong length of time to go to counseling.
Anyone can benefit from counseling services. Counseling can help you gain greater insight into yourself; deal with feelings of sadness, worry, depression or anxiety; as well as work out relationship problems, trauma or addiction. Not every type of counseling service works with every person.
Yes. Except in very specific situations, a counselor will never repeat conversations from a counseling session. Situations where information from sessions might be shared include:
  • If the counselor believes the patient might harm him or herself, or someone else.
  • If the counselor wants to get a second opinion on the patient's treatment. If this is the case, the counselor should seek the patient's written permission before consulting another professional.
