Tyeast Edmond

(LCSW)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in North Carolina, who for many years have been counseling people who are dealing with depression, anxiety, poor anger management, problems within their intimate relationships, communication problems within their family, parenting challenges, grief/loss, adjustment issues and job loss. My counseling framework is a combination of Person Centered therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I believe that as a Mental Health Practitioner, my role is to empower clients to be the best expert on their life by teaching them tangible/realistic skills to help replace maladaptive thought patterns and behaviors that have caused chaos in their lives, with positive ones. This is accomplished through psycho-educational activities geared to increase the client’s ability to identify situations that trigger the negative thoughts/emotions/behaviors and learn new ways to be proactive at catching the problem at the onset, so that it does not turn into a conflict that zaps energy taking away from living life at their highest and best. My clients are often provided with counseling homework activities that help to reinforce the skills discussed during the counseling session and asked to report back on progress.

My counseling style consists of three main philosophies

1. To create a counseling space that is welcoming, safe, and warm and provides people the space to be their true self, free from judgment.

2. To be aware that clients are resilient and have the natural untapped skills to combat life’s obstacles. It is my job to help them build upon their inner strengths, while teaching them realistic coping skills to help them effectively address their problems.

3. To know that counseling is like a dance, the client always leads, and my role is to hold my client’s accountable, assisting in reaching their goals so they can mentally, emotionally and spiritually dance through life’s most challenging situations.

Ms Edmond is a great counselor. She is very in tune with my counseling needs. She is very good and giving me the support I need while also being real with me in a respectful way. She does not enable me to fall back into old habits and she challenges me to do my “homework” which is there for my personal benefit and growth. I feel that while I am not done with therapy by any means, but I have come a long way thanks to her.

I was hesitant to try counseling again since I hadn't had good experiences in the past. I am so glad I gave it a chance and even more thankful that I was paired with Ms. Edmond. She challenges me, holds me accountable, and also encourages me. I look forward to my sessions every week and know that she has helped empower me to make positive changes for myself.

Written by C.A. on Oct 26, 2018 after counseling with Tyeast for 1 month on issues concerning relationship

This is our first time participating in couples counseling. We were very nervous at first, but Tyeast made us feel comfortable the first session! She uses research as well as real life circumstances, and we love it thus far.

Tyeast is kind and tough. Which is what you want in a therapist if you want to get down to work. Don't expect to get coddled, you will be expected to participate in making your therapy work for you.
