Raychelle Cassada Lohmann, Ph.D., LPCS, GCDF

Hello! Thank you for visiting my site. I am a board-certified licensed professional counselor, 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 my Master of Science in Counselor Education. With over 20 years in the counseling profession, I have devoted much of my time 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 seven languages such as Chinese, Dutch, English, French, Korean, 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, as well as counseling and educational-related subjects. My work has been featured in numerous publications, both nationally and internationally including the Associated Press, Chicago Tribune, Seventeen Magazine, and Scholastic.

I believe in making evidence-based practices accessible, practical and relevant. Not only do I do this in my writing, but I also apply these principles in practice. As a practitioner, I provide both brief and long-term therapy working with individuals and groups. My approach to counseling utilizes cognitive, behavioral and mindfulness-based therapies to address a variety of behaviors and issues including academic, anger, anxiety, bullying, career, depression, stress management, trauma, personal/social, and interpersonal problems.
