Meet Sierra Felix, MA, LCMHCA
Hello, my name is Sierra Felix and I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate (LCMHCA) at New Life Counseling Center, PLLC, a private group practice in Winston Salem, NC. We offer individual, group, couples and family counseling, and we serve a wide variety of clients with a broad range of presenting issues.
I received my B.A. in Psychology from Queens University of Charlotte in 2017 and my M.A. in Counseling from Wake Forest University here in Winston-Salem in 2019.
I approach counseling from a person-centered foundation. I believe that the client is the expert of their own world and that my job is to listen nonjudgmentally and empathically in order to fully understand their experience. Creating a safe space where clients feel heard and understood is essential to creating a therapeutic relationship in which we can work together to meet clients’ therapeutic goals.
I provide individual counseling to individuals ages five and above as well as group, family, and couples counseling services. I address a variety of emotional, behavioral, and social issues. My areas of focus include relationship issues for couples and families, parenting, mood disorders, trauma, and children and adolescents. I draw from many different therapeutic techniques including but not limited to cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, Gottman couples therapy, motivational interviewing, and strengths based therapy. I tailor each session to the client’s individual needs.
I am a North Carolina native, born and raised in Asheville, NC. I lived in Charlotte for four years before moving here to Winston-Salem in 2017. I just got married and we have a three-year-old King Charles Cavalier Spaniel named Mia. Relationships are very important to me, so I spend most of my fun time hanging out with friends and family. For relaxation, I enjoy running, yoga, and journaling. My faith is also very important to me, so I spend a lot of time reading Christian books and my husband and I are very involved with our church.
