Life can be complicated and difficult to maneuver at times. Although we live in a complex society, life should be enjoyable. There may be times when you or a loved one will need extra support and guidance to navigate the hard parts of life. I am committed to helping you do just that.
Counseling, Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy & Psychiatric Consultation for all age groups.
NorthStar Counseling Services, PLLC is a mental health private practice in Charlotte, North Carolina that specializes in treating primarily African-American children, adolescents, and adults with emotional, psychological, behavioral, identity, and relationship issues.
Adrean Cottle, National Certified Counselor and Board Certified Licensed Professional Counselor, has been observing the epidemic of mental health issues and illnesses among African Americans for more than twenty years. Despite the growing crisis, many still avoid seeking therapy or handle their issues in unhealthy or destructive ways because they fear its stigma and judgment, which have long been perpetuated by the African-American community. As a result, Cottle decided to start her own practice.
Adrean, has a very warm nurturing spirit, which allows her to connect easily with clients she engages with.
Adrean creates a therapeutic environment with a safe welcoming feel. She is a genuinely caring person. Her gifts of being nonjudgmental, validating and encouraging as well as direct and honest, make our sessions very helpful and productive.
These qualities continue to help me not only get through some tough times but also to grow during these times.
Adrean has been a blessing to me over the past year and a half.
I tried counseling previously with another therapist and it was not the right fit. Ever since I have started coming to see Adrean I have began to see so many changes in my day to day. I feel more free, less anxious, and a better partner to my fiancée. Adrean has a way of relating to her clients and it is truly a gift. As long as she is around I will continue to see her.
