Cessel J. Boyd

Hi, I am Cessel J. Boyd but you may call me C. J.! A loving mother to an adult son, I am originally from a small town in North Carolina. My passion for counseling and helping others developed in High School. This desire led me to obtain my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical (NC A&T) State University in 1997 and a Master of Arts Degree in Professional Counseling from Liberty University in 2011. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) in the state of North Carolina and a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Virginia.

I have 24 years of experience working in the Behavioral Health Field. This experience includes working with students in the public-school system, Prison Mental Health, Mental Health, and Substance Abuse Crisis Facilities, Mental Health Hospitals, Non-Profit organizations, Employee Assistance Programs, and Private Practice settings. I established C. J. Boyd Christian Counseling Services, PLLC in December of 2014. Since then I have helped clients achieve success while struggling in the following areas: Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, Bipolar Disorder, Addiction (substances, pornography, and screen addiction), Relationship issues, and Workplace/Career/University transitions.

I LOVE what I do! I look forward to continuing this work and assisting others on their journey to wellness.

Sharon Roberts-Carter

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) in North Carolina and a Licensed Professional Counselor(LPC) in Virginia.  I have over 25 years of experience in the field of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Treatment.  I provide individual therapy, family therapy, and couples therapy from a Christian framework with diverse populations such as: military members, children, adolescents, and adults. The following are some of the issues that I help individuals address:  Anxiety, Anger Management, Attention Deficit, Depression, Grief /Loss, Parental Guidance, PTSD, Relationship Problems, Trauma, and Workplace Stressors.

My goal as a therapist is to create a supportive, empathetic, and nonjudgmental environment in which people can explore their own emotional needs, discuss their behavioral issues and navigate their spiritual concerns while expressing their everyday life struggles as a Christian.  I am very eclectic and client-centered in my therapeutic process and I always utilize strength-based approaches in my work with individuals.   During the process of therapy, I use several tools, such as: a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), education, empathetic understanding, psychological insight, and reality-oriented practical problem solving to help people achieve a strong internal capacity to manage their daily lives as effectively as possible.  I firmly believe, that people basically know what they want out of life; however, sometimes they need a little guidance and some support to help them along the way.  If you are ready for change; I look forward to embarking on this journey with you to achieve your goals.
