About Rhonda Sutton, Ph.D., LPC, LPCS
I am a native North Carolinian who happily resides in Raleigh. I have my doctorate (Ph.D.) and Masters (M.Ed.) in Counselor Education from North Carolina State University, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of North Carolina, and I am also a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (LPCS). I have over 20 years experience as a counselor and over 10 years experience as an administrator, mostly within a higher education setting. I have presented over 100 workshops on a variety of professional and personal topics. When I am not engaged in my professional work, I enjoy time with my family as well as walking, reading, traveling (especially to historic places), going to movies and writing.
I have been providing counseling since 1988 when I first started as a peer counselor at the Wake County Women's Center. Since that time, I have both owned and worked in private counseling practices, worked for an employee assistance program, worked at a mental health hospital on both the in-patient and outpatient units with adults who had both a mental illness and substance abuse diagnosis, served as the evening counselor at an all-women's college, directed a university women's center, been the on-site counselor at a veterinary college, and directed a postdoc office where I mainly provided career counseling and coaching. I am an adjunct teaching professor at North Carolina State University in the Counselor Education Program and have also been an assistant vice provost in the Office for Equal Opportunity at NC State University.
My counseling focuses on helping adults, couples and adolescents who experience trauma, abuse, violence, victimization, relationship issues, depression, career concerns, life transitions, stress and other mental health concerns. My administrative experience has involved working with professionals, scientists, skilled and unskilled workers, and management on sensitive issues related to employment.
To date, I have supervised eight (8) counselors-in-training who have become LPCs. I currently supervising LPCAs who work in community agencies, mental health facilities, college and career counseling centers, schools and private practices, providing them with the supervision, guidance and mentoring needed so they can successfully obtain their licensure as counselors in the state of North Carolina.
