**NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS**
After spending years in the mental health field I started to notice how clinical and sterile some counselors approached the healing process. I strive to make sessions relaxed and calming while still achieving your desired goal. I want those I work with to feel valued and respected.
I have a Bachelors of Social Work and a Masters in Mental Health Counseling. I am licenced by the NCBLCMHC. I have been in the mental health field since 2001. I opened my private practice in 2014 because I wanted to give people an opportunity to try a different approach to counseling.
Because I firmly believe that the key to your success in counseling is the therapeutic relationship, I make the first consultation free. By doing this you are able to meet me, ask me questions, and determine if I am a good fit for your needs. Contact me today to schedule your free initial consultation or to ask me any questions @ Margaret.Donald@adifferentattitude.com
Hello I am Skyla Pryor.
I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate and a Nationally Certified Counselor. As a counselor I cannot promise to take all your problems away. However I can promise you that you will not have to face them alone. I have two years of counseling experience. I have worked with adults, adolescents, and children. I use person centered therapy and cognitive behavior therapy. I have also used art therapy and play therapy when working with children.
I love nature, meeting new people, and cats.

Hi everyone, my name is Savannah Swartout and I am thrilled to be joining the team here as an intern at A Different Attitude Counseling PLLC.
In the spring of 2018 I graduated Magna Cum Laude from East Carolina University with a degree in Psychology and a minor in Human Development & Family Sciences, and since have enrolled in Campbell Universities Master’s Program to become a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor.
My philosophy stems from the idea that every individual grows and blossoms at their own pace, and a counselor is simply here to water and nourish those who come to us. I practice from three primary theoretical frameworks, which include cognitive behavioral therapy, feminist’s theory, and person centered therapy.
I have a desire to work with adolescents, women, trauma victims, and the LGBTQIA+ community, but I am fully open to expanding my range of clientele to include every individual eager to grow with me.
I am a book fanatic, small dog lover, and dreamer of endless travels.
Feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
