What does a first session with you look like?

Building a rapport between client and therapist in therapy is vital. If we can’t relate to each other, I won’t be able to help you. Our first session will be relaxed while we respond to “getting to know you” questions that on the surface make no sense. You’ll see that they do.

If you could pick one movie or book that influenced your approach to therapy, what would it be and why?

There’s a scene in the movie “Groundhog Day” that has always resonated with me. Phil and Rita are playing a hat and card trick game and Phil is telling Rita how cursed he is that he has to restart the same day over and over. Rita says, “I don’t know, Phil. Maybe it’s not a curse. It just depends on how you look at it.” And isn’t that really what it’s all about, in how we look at it? From there, Phil uses this seemingly cursed situation as an opportunity to live his best life.

What does success look like in therapy? How will a client know that they are making progress?

My goal for you is happiness. And while we all suffer trials and tribulations, grief and disappointments in life, happiness is obtainable! There is a roadmap to happiness and I can help you address obstacles in your life and obtain the skills that will empower you to put yourself on that road.

Work History

Hi! My name is Belinda Tilley, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor working in the state of North Carolina. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Counseling. I began my career as a school counselor in 1993 and have been in the field of mental health since then. I provide counseling that is confidential, compassionate, supportive, and non-judgmental which provides you a space to speak freely and candidly. I have worked with a wide array of clients of all ages that have a broad range of concerns such as depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, family dynamic distress, self-injuring behaviors, trauma, and emotional abuse. I have experience in working with individuals from different cultural, ethnic, racial, and religious backgrounds.
