Jill Strickland, MA, LCMHC


I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in the state of North Carolina. I received a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 1999.  I earned received a Master of Arts in Professional Counseling from Liberty University.

My training involves individual, family, child, and marriage/couple relationship counseling. In treating anxiety and depression, I am trained in utilizing CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Mindfulness, and DBT(Dialectical Behavioral Therapy). With couples, I explore communication styles, conflict resolution patterns and cycles, and discover new ways of active listening while meeting needs and aligning values. Working alongside a Psychiatrist has provided invaluable experience from different views of behavioral health allowing a wider scope of treatment possibilities to assist us while navigating through your challenges.

In locating the root of the issue, I believe a holistic journey of healing from the inside out will provide a lasting, happy and fulfilling life.

Jill is a member of the American Counseling Association, Licensed Professional Counselors Association of North Carolina, American Association of Christian Counselors and North Carolina Counseling Association.

ANGEL FOX,MA, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Associate (LCMHCA)

My name is Angel Fox.  I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Associate in the State of North Carolina.

My professional background began in education.  I obtained a Bachelor of
Arts from Elon University in 2000 and worked as an Elementary School teacher
for 21 years.  I received my Master’s degree from Liberty University in 2022.  

I have a heart for helping the hurting on their journey to healing
psychologically and spiritually.  Women and children are populations near
and dear to my heart.  I am familiar working with anxiety, depression,
divorce, grief, loss, stress, oncology, and trauma.    

I am versed in behavioral therapy techniques and mindfulness
approaches.  I work from a collaborative and strengths-based approach
using Solution Focused therapy (SFT), Cognitive Behavior therapy (CBT) and
mindfulness techniques.

SFT helps clients discover their existing strengths, skills, strategies, and
ideas to help them move forward into the future learning how to do things

CBT helps clients learn effective strategies and ways of coping with a wide
range of problems.  This process helps clients discover distorted or
faulty thinking.  CBT helps clients change their faulty thinking and
negative thought patterns.

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) builds on the principles of CBT
and incorporates and teaches clients mindful meditation, how to be present in
the moment with thoughts and feelings and recognize thoughts and feelings
preceding behaviors.  This is very effective for anxiety, depression,
stress, low moods, and those clients struggling with happiness.  

Furthermore, as a Christian, I believe in treating the whole patient.
Spiritual health is very important.  I will incorporate Christian or
Spiritual counseling for anyone who wishes to incorporate their faith into

I am a member of the American Counseling Association (ACA) and the American
Christian Counseling Association (ACCA). I am also a certified Life Coach.

NADIA CROSSNO-RODRIGUEZ, MEd, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Associate (LCMHCA)  

Hi! I’m Nadia, I am a graduate of the University of North Carolina, Wilmington, with my bachelor’s in psychology and a minor in criminology. I am also a graduate of North Carolina State University with my Master’s of Education (MEd) in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.

Prior to my counseling work, I became familiar with the mental health field during my employment at a clinical neuropsychology private practice. I have experience working with children, teenagers, young adults, and older adults. I have much experience working with family members of clients as well. Most of my counseling experience revolves around anxiety, depression, chronic illness, trauma, grief/loss, family work, group work, and ADHD.

I enjoy working from a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and a Choice Theory framework as they both emphasize the importance of the relationship between our behavioral decisions and our thoughts/cognition, including how our decision-making influences us reaching our goals. I pull techniques from Solution Focused Therapy (SFT) to highlight strengths of my clients and to help foster a positive outlook. I also enjoy incorporating themes from Existential Theory as finding meaning in life is crucial, as well as from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to utilize mindfulness techniques and related models.

I strive to provide clients with individualized care to meet the unique needs of each person. I recognize the importance of self and external awareness as well as individualized perceptions of the world to redefine meaning and purpose. I welcome all communities and populations as clients.

I am a member of the American Counseling Association (ACA).
