Kiera Egan, MA, NCC, LPCA
I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology in 1994 and decided later in life to follow my passion to serve others and pursue my Masters in Professional Counseling from Wake Forest.
I have experience with people from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and belief systems. I have worked with adolescents and adults with varying mental health issues, as well as those with co-occurring Substance-Use Disorders. I have experience in the areas of depression, anxiety, self-esteem, PTSD, dissociative disorders, trauma, life transitions, grief and loss, stress and burnout, adjustment to chronic illness, and relational problems. I take an integrative approach combining Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Client-centered Therapy along with being informed by positive psychology and compassion-focused approaches. I believe that humans are always in the process of becoming the best versions of themselves and need help freeing themselves from the disabling assumptions and attitudes that hold them back. I provide a safe, comfortable, and confidential space where clients can get the help they need to experience change and relief from whatever struggles they are facing.
When I am not working, I love traveling with my husband, spending time with friends, family, and my dogs, and being outside in nature as much as possible.
