Charnel R. Pone, MA, LPC
As the Owner and Lead Therapist of Life Wellness Counseling Center, I am devoted to the growth and development of my clients. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, entrepreneur, daughter, wife, and friend. I chose to become a counselor because as I grew up I began to notice that there are so many people that have become accustomed to conforming to pain, discomfort, and hopelessness and allowing it to dictate the rest of their lives, how they interact with themselves, and the world. I wanted to be a part of the process of trading beauty for ashes.
I obtained my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from North Carolina Central University. In addition to being a Licensed Professional Counselor, I am Nationally Certified Counselor as well.
My clinical experience includes providing outpatient therapy to children, adolescents, adults and couples, and families in both Private Practice and Community Mental Health settings helping clients with depression, anxiety, trauma, and relationship issues. Currently, I provide services to adults and couples, Christian Counseling and have a strong desire to help build the bridge between mental health and christian communities. I am a Prepared & Enrich Facilitator for couples, marriage, and premarital counseling.
Counseling for me, is much more than a profession, it's a calling. I believe that I have been positioned with my education, experience, and expertise to help you heal from what has been keeping you held captive. Our thoughts, fears, past experiences and so much more has the ability to keep us from excelling at life when we give those things power over us.
As we work together, it is my prayer that you be made whole, triumph over your adversities, and experience joy that you did not know was possible.
When I am not working, you can find me spending time with family, listening to great music, and traveling.
