HELLO, I'M Patricia Muehlberger

PHILOSOPHY

Hello, my name is Patricia Muehlberger. I am originally from the Midwest and moved to NC about 7 years ago. I love it here.  I enjoy reading, swimming, yoga, and college basketball. I have four amazing children. My philosophy is that everyone has their own answers. They just may need someone to help find them.  That’s where I come in, with an open mind and expertise. I am here to explore what works for you and to help you make healthy choices for yourself through support, guidance, and providing tools for personal growth.

EXPERTISE

Anxiety Depression and Trauma Counselor

I earned my MS degree from Missouri State University. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), National Certified Counselor (NCC), and a Registered Yoga Teacher (200 RYT.) I have significant training and experience working with crisis situations and trauma victims, especially our Military members. One of my specialties is working with military, law enforcement and first responders. Re-integration and PTSD are some of the issues that take focus during therapy sessions. I have vast experience in individual, family, and relationship counseling. My emphasis for yoga training involves behavioral health issues such as: depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, OCD, and trauma. I work with ages 14 and up.

COUNSELING APPROACH

My counseling approach involves the whole individual. “One size fits all” does NOT exist. Together we will explore the right approach that is most effective for you. I focus on Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Solution-Focused Therapy, Person-Centered, Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and other integrative approaches such as mindfulness and yoga for depression, anxiety and trauma.
