Raychelle Cassada Lohmann, Ph.D., NCC, LCMHCS

Hello! Thank you for visiting my site. I am a board-certified licensed clinical mental health counselor supervisor who loves helping others. I have my Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision from NC State University. Coincidentally, this is the same University where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Master of Science in Counselor Education. I have devoted most of my career to working with children, adolescents, parents, and educators. I am passionate about what I do and strive to live out my mission statement of “helping others transform their lives from the inside out.”

In addition to my educational background, I am an internationally known author covering several of today’s most popular topics. My books are published in eight languages: Chinese, Dutch, English, French, Korean, Spanish, Turkish, and Vietnamese. I am also a regular contributor to media outlets, including Psychology Today, US News and World Report, Sharecare, and Recovery.com. Aside from writing, I am a sought-after professional speaker who presents on various topics pertaining to trending adolescent and parenting issues and counseling and educational-related subjects. My work has been featured in numerous nationally and internationally publications, including the Associated Press, Chicago Tribune, Seventeen Magazine, and Scholastic.

As a Clinical Mental Health Counselor and Supervisor in North Carolina and a Licensed Professional Counselor in South Carolina, I believe in making evidence-based practices accessible, practical and relevant. Not only do I do this in my written work, but I also incorporate these principles into my practice. In my work as a practitioner, I provide brief and long-term therapy working with individuals and groups. My approach to counseling utilizes cognitive, behavioral, trauma-focused, and mindfulness-based therapies to address a variety of behaviors and issues, including academic, anger, anxiety, bullying, depression, stress management, trauma, social, interpersonal, and many other issues.

I am an EMDR-trained provider and an active member of the EMDR International Association. I also hold the following certifications: Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS), Board Certified Telemental Health Provider (BCTMH), Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP), and Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF).
