It matters not what road we take but rather what we become on the journey.

Whitney Wall, Ph.D.

Whitney-Wall-2016.jpgMy professional experience includes crisis intervention, college-student counseling, health behavior management, clinical assessment, and individual, group, couples, and family therapy. I'm a client-centered therapist trained in humanistic, interpersonal, and multicultural orientations. From this foundation, I integrate other evidenced-based approaches, such as CBT, family systems, and mindfulness. As a client-centered therapist, I tailor my approach to fit the unique needs of my clients and I'm always learning and incorporating new tools into my work. I offer services to pre-teens, adolescents, adults, couples, and families who wish to explore various human experiences, including depression, anxiety, trauma, grief/loss, career concerns, relationship difficulties, and life transitions (such as separation/divorce).

I have 5 years of clinical experience. I have a Bachelor's degree in Sociology from the College of Charleston, a Master's degree in Public Health from the University of South Carolina, and a Doctorate degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Florida.

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at Fayetteville State University. I am available to see therapy and evaluation clients on Fridays from 9am-7pm.

Chela Cowan, BA 

Chela_7.jpgI am a distance education student enrolled in the University of Massachusetts - Boston's Family Therapy Master's Program, interning with KKJ Forensics & Psychological Services with the ultimate goal of pursuing my License in Marriage and Family Therapy (LMFT).

Upon the journey towards earning my master's degree, I have engaged in several experiences that have enhanced my professional development.  I have worked as a mental health technician for a psychiatric hospital, where I have gained experience in behavioral health, crisis intervention, mental health, and substance abuse.  During my time as a mental health technician, I have facilitated group therapy sessions, tailoring discussions around topics that directly relate to each client's treatment plan.

I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Family and Community Services - Concentration in Family Studies, from East Carolina University.  I hold certifications in Crisis Prevention Intervention, and as a Child and Family Needs & Assessments Assessor.  

I will have earned my Master's in Family Therapy in May 2017.

I am available to see therapy clients on Wednesdays at 8am and Thursdays between 8am-4pm.  I will also be assisting with Intake Assessments for evaluation clients on Wednesdays.

Lansdell Edwards, B.A.

Lansdell-2015.jpgI am the KKJ Intake Coordinator and Psychometrician.

I obtained a BA in psychology from NC State University. I worked as a Teaching Assistant for Dr. Rupert Nacoste in his class "The Psychology of Interdependence and Race."  Through this experience, I learned how to watch for group dynamics in a large setting and how to properly facilitate group discussions, especially when uncomfortable topics are presented. I also have experience working with children as a camp counselor for many summers. I worked as a mentor at the Boys and Girls Club of Raleigh, helping children improve their reading skills using an intervention called HELPS. 

I plan to attend graduate school for clinical psychology.

 Katrina Kuzyszyn-Jones, Psy.D.

 Katrina-2015-3.jpgWith almost 20 years of clinical experience, my work reflects my experiences in private practice, community mental health and the criminal justice system. I offer therapy for relationships and work/life balance, divorce counseling and support, and evaluations for family law and criminal proceedings. I am trained to be client centered and utilize an integrative approach. That means that I have training in Family Systems, Interpersonal Therapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, CBT, DBT, and ACT models. While only some of these techniques may be utilized at any given time, an integrative approach allows a therapist to conceptualize things broadly and have many tools for actual practice. 

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Washington, a Master’s degree in Forensic Psychology from John Jay College of Criminal Justice, a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the American School of Professional Psychology, and am a licensed psychologist.

I supervise master's and doctoral level clinicians in various stages of training and development. 

I am available for therapy and evaluation services on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9am-5pm.
