Connor Keeter, MS, LCMHCA, NCC
I’m a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate, and am extremely passionate about helping people achieve their goals and overall mental health. My husband and I are NC natives and have loved living in Wilmington for the last 10+ years and raising our two kids on the coast!
I believe everyone can benefit from therapy and I recognize it is a privilege to be entrusted with my client’s challenges and goals. Before working in private practice, I spent 6 years working as a high school counselor focusing on helping adolescents navigate through their challenges and goals. I have worked with varying age ranges including children, adolescents, college students, and young adults. I focus on providing a warm, trusting and healing environment, and to serve as an advocate by providing people with the tools they need in order to be the most healthy version of themselves. I specialize in working with anxiety disorders, social anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), adjustment/life transitions, self-esteem, relationship issues/attachment, and ADHD. I utilize evidence-based treatment strategies such as Person-Centered Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Exposure Response Prevention, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. In addition to these modalities, I also enjoy incorporating faith into counseling if a client requests to do so.
It is an act of self-love to prioritize your mental health and emotional wellbeing. I would love to help you take that first-step. I work to meet clients where they are and tailor my approach to each individual situation. It can take a lot of courage to ask for help, I am available to answer questions to make this process easier. I'd love to speak with you and help you achieve your goals!
