How We Can Help
We recognize that this pandemic continues to be challenging. We are offering online and in person options to help folks continue to access services in a way that is best for them.
We’re honored that you’re here…and if you are, chances are, you’re hurting.
Because we are the only INTENSIVELY TRAINED AND CERTIFIED TEAM of DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) clinicians in the Triad, we specialize in working with folks who seem to experience emotions more intensely than most. By the time you get to us, this has usually led to coping in ways that have a significant impact on your life…such as suicidal thoughts or attempts, self-injury, relationship troubles, or other ways of decreasing the suffering.
The thing is, we recognize that those ways of coping are attempts to regulate your emotion—you’re trying!! While most of the world sees those behaviors as problems, they have actually been your solutions to problems!! We get it. We’ll help you continue to identify more solutions to the problem and teach you new skills that will help you let go of habits that cause additional suffering.
Individual, Family, and Group Therapy
We provide individual therapy for adults, teenagers, and children ages 6 and older. We work with families and couples wishing to address the complexities of relationships and parenting. Additionally, we offer several ongoing groups, such as DBT Skills classes for adults, female presenting DBT Skills class, male identifying skills class, DBT Skills classes for adolescents, RO DBT Skills class for adults, LGBTQIA+ DBT Skills class, and Friends and Family DBT Skills class. To inquire about individual, couple, family, and/or group therapy, please call us at 336-337-5469. Our Agency Coordinator, Rebecca, will either answer your call or respond to your voice message by the next business day. She’ll work with you to get you through the intake process quickly and set up with the treatment path and clinician that fits for you.
Comprehensive Dialectical Behavior Therapy
At Guilford Counseling, we are the only team of clinicians in the Triad practicing DBT to fidelity where everyone from our Office Coordinator to our clinicians to our interns have all been intensively trained in DBT. We are passionate about serving folks who often end up being misunderstood, and who end up suffering as a result. It is for this reason, and more, that we are so committed to helping you get the treatment that you deserve, and supporting you every step of the way. We provide Comprehensive DBT as well as DBT-informed treatment.
Trauma Therapy: EMDR, Brainspotting, and More
We believe that the trauma of living in challenging environments, invalidation, not being seen for who you truly are, single incident traumas, complex developmental traumas, and many many other things are the basis for most mental health challenges. Because of this, all of our clinicians are trained to treat trauma, using modalities such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Brainspotting, IFS (Internal Family Systems), Somatic Experiencing, or Polyvagal Theory. We offer stand-alone trauma therapy sessions and we incorporate trauma treatment into our individual therapy programs. We would love to help you explore which is right for you.

Radically Open DBT
We are one of only a handful of practices in the state to offer Radically Open DBT (RO DBT). RO DBT is an evidence-based treatment that has shown remarkable results for folks struggling with symptoms such as chronic depression, chronic anxiety, Anorexia Nervosa, and other difficult-to-treat and difficult to live with conditions. The focus becomes increasing flexibility of thoughts and actions, teaching skills to build genuine connections with others, and enhancing enjoyment and spontaneity. Do you feel isolated, lonely, or misunderstood? Do you have high expectations of yourself and others? Do you find yourself constantly striving? Do you get frustrated when others don’t get the message you’re sending them? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then this innovative treatment could be the right fit for you.
Supervision, Training, Consultation
We offer a range of supervision and training groups including supervision to LCSW-A’s, peer consultation group, DBT supervision group, DBT consultation team, program consultation, and DBT Basic and Advanced trainings.
