My name is Shameca D. Ricks . I am a native of the Drakes Community in Battleboro, NC.

In 2000, I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a minor in Gerontological Studies.

Upon graduation, I worked for nine years as a director of social services within nursing homes and rehabilitation centers. I worked closely with hospice residents, assisting families in making decisions surrounding end-of-life care.
In 2013, I graduated with a Master's Degree in Social Work specializing in Substance Abuse Treatment from East Carolina University.
Recently, I have worked with children and adolescents with childhood mental health disorders. I also work with adults providing individual, marital, and family counseling.

I strive to provide a relaxed and comfortable environment that promotes trust and healing. I am dedicated to walking with you every step of the way on your journey to wholeness.

My therapeutic approach is eclectic and tailored to the needs of the individual.  I utilize CBT, Strengths-Based, DBT, and Solutions Focused approaches to provide practical strategies, behavioral change, and personal growth.

It does not matter who you are or what you have been through, you can recover!

Meet Kendra Holley

Licensed Mental Health Therapist

Hello and Welcome!  My name is Kendra Holley McGhee. I am a native of Princeville, NC.  I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology with a concentration in Social Welfare, from Winston-Salem State University.  Shortly after graduating, I began working in the Mental Health field in 1996. I continued to expand my experience with the Nash County Department of Social Services as a Child Protective Service Investigator. This exposure provided me with diversified opportunities to help the disadvantaged or those struggling with mental health challenges to live healthier and more fulfilled lives.

 While never tired of helping others, I began working and gained experience in direct care as an Associate Professional and Qualified Mental Health Professional. This experience prompted me to earn a Master of Social Work degree from the University of New England.

Upon graduation, I began working with Well Life Counseling and Spiritual Center as the Director of Operations and a Qualified Mental Health Professional in 2018. My previous twenty years of experience helping children, adolescents, young adults, and the elderly compelled me to further my work experience and obtain certification as a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist Associate.

I am currently accepting new clients for treatment of addiction challenges and life coaching with adults, and teens. Let’s live life well together!
