Many people are struggling - alone, in silence, and in shame. They are fearful of the stigma, costs, and inconveniences associated with counseling, as well as issues of confidentiality. Candice strives provide an open door to counseling to address each of these issues by providing affordable, professional, and exceptional services in a safe space. She offers individual counseling, couples and family counseling, and support groups addressing a wide range of presenting concerns.
Candice recognizes the challenges facing any organization or group where multiple personalities, approaches, talents, backgrounds, and growth areas have merged. Conversations, productivity, and cohesion can become difficult to achieve. Candice's training as a counselor has equipped her with specialized skills to facilitate productive and meaningful conversations and training. Also, she is an accomplished presenter that speaks to academic groups about topics that community organizations and schools could greatly benefit from.
Health coaching is becoming more mainstream and a recommended service to complement traditional medical treatment. Many patients know what changes they need to make and they desire a healthier lifestyle but they are having a hard time implementing long-term, realistic, and sustainable behavior modifications. Although the qualifications for coaching varies widely, as does what coaches do, Candice is a soon-to-be, highly qualified health coach through a vetted program within the Public Health Department at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She is trained to serve as a guide to facilitate change while holding client's accountable.
