About

Haley Penk, M.S., LCMHCA, NCC

Contract Therapist

Hi, my name is Haley Penk, and I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Counselor Associate. I have previously worked in college counseling centers and community mental health as an outpatient therapist. I have experience working with a wide range of different clients and presenting concerns. I take a person-centered/eclectic approach to counseling, emphasizing empathy and non-judgment and tailoring treatment to you as the individual and your needs. Some of the interventions I utilize in sessions include CBT activities, DBT skills, mindfulness, and solution-focused techniques. 

 

I’m originally from New Jersey but have lived most of my life in North Carolina in both the Charlotte area and Greensboro. In my free time, I enjoy playing board games, cooking new recipes, binge-watching reality shows, reading, traveling, and spending time with my fiancé.
