Elnita Ottey

Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in North Carolina. My experience as a counselor consists of more than 20 years of counseling individuals with diverse backgrounds in the school and outpatient settings.

As a therapist, I believe that the counseling process is a collaboration between the client and therapist. I believe that clients are the experts in their lives, and within the framework of therapeutic alliance, clients can access their inner resources and experience change.
