Orita McCorkle Ramseur, MA/MDiv, LCMHCS
I earned my graduate degrees from Wake Forest University and am licensed by the state of North Carolina as a licensed clinical mental health counselor supervisor. Prior to joining Counseling and Well-being services at the school of medicine, I practiced at the Downtown Health Plaza and the Reynolda campus of Wake Forest University. I have worked with clients experiencing a wide spectrum of mental health concerns, including but not limited to: anxiety, depression, interpersonal issues, family of origin issues, multicultural issues, spiritual and existential issues, and self-esteem challenges. I believe that the client-counselor relationship is one of the most important tools in developing a healthy and helpful experience for my clients. Although my therapeutic approach is flexible, in the most recent past, I have spent significant time using Person-Centered, Cognitive Behavioral, Solution-Focused, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy approaches as my primary therapeutic modalities. I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy.

I integrate techniques from cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavior, and psychodynamic therapies, among others, and am an EMDR therapist. I am an experienced counselor for university undergraduates, medical and other graduate-level students, and adults.

Jessica McKoy, MA, LCMHCS
Mental Health Counselor
I received both my bachelor and master’s degree from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Supervisor in the state of NC. I have been providing counseling services for over 10 years with a variety of ages and populations within several different settings, most recently providing services to students in higher education.

I have a certification in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) to assist those dealing with trauma and am currently completing training in CBTi to help individuals struggling with sleep issues.

I enjoy aiding clients to find solutions to common daily stressors or more difficult mental health issues.
