In The Garden Counseling

Corrie Ten Boom — 'Happiness isn't something that depends on our surroundings...It's something we make inside ourselves.'

The In the Garden Counseling team has undergone rigorous education with specialized training in mood disorders, addictions, and grief, in order to provide the best possible counseling resources for our clients. We are proud to provide both individual and group counseling services to meet the health service needs of our community. Our commitment to help clients overcome adversity to become healthy and productive citizens has grown over the years.

“In The Garden Counseling”  offers traditional Office-Based counseling services as well as “Nature-Based” counseling.  In both settings, mental health needs are assessed and treatment takes place within a more traditional private office setting, or a beautifully landscaped garden surrounded by blooms in a charming location of northern Iredell County.  Contact us today for a free phone consultation to discuss which setting is the right fit for your specific needs.


Experienced Counselor

As a native of Iredell County, it’s a privilege to offer counseling to individuals, and families, who live here and in surrounding areas. My past experience includes working with children and teens in an alternative school, victims of domestic violence, PTSD, OCD, ADHD, anxiety, depression, parenting, self-esteem issues, and intellectual/developmental disabilities (ID/DD).  I especially empathize with the DD population due to personally experiencing many of the struggles faced by having a daughter who was born with Spina bifida.  In addition to past education and experience, I am currently pursuing certification in a program that integrates Christian principles with compatible psychological perspectives. I am also a National Certified Counselor (NCC) with the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC).


With Faith-based Counseling

Our counselors align with the theoretical perspective that treatment meant to ease emotional, mental, or physical discomfort is not fully effective until we acknowledge the spiritual aspect of our difficulty, which leads us to integrate Faith-based therapy with evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Gestalt Therapy, as well as, Nature-Based Therapy.



Why the Garden?


Being in nature, or even viewing scenes of nature has been proven to reduce  anger, fear, and stress and also increases pleasant feelings. Exposure to nature not only makes you feel better emotionally, it contributes to your physical well-being by reducing blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and the production of stress hormones. According to some scientists, it may even reduce mortality.
