Alicia McArthur, MA, LCMHC
I received my BA in Communication and French from Wake Forest University, and my MA in Counseling from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, Massachusetts.
I have been working in the mental health field since 2002, and have been a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (formerly Licensed Professional Counselor) in the state of North Carolina since August 26, 2005 (License #5019). In August of 2013, I became a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Supervisor (License #S5019). Prior to starting my own private practice, I worked at the Mecklenburg County Jail, and in both the outpatient department and emergency department of CMC-Randolph.
On a personal note, I am a mom of 3 children and a wife, which keeps me busy when I am not meeting with clients!
What you can expect from me
I believe that all individuals are unique and valuable, and I treat all of my clients with compassion, respect and acceptance. I count it a privilege to walk alongside my clients during difficult seasons in their lives as they seek to grow and heal.
My style is straight-forward, practical, validating and collaborative. It is influenced by elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy, existential therapy, systems theory, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). I am also certified in EMDR through the EMDR International Association.
