Counseling and Psychotherapy

John K. Ormond, Jr. M.Th., L.P.C

Counseling and psychotherapy of all types are available at the Center for individuals, couples and families. Just for example, we offer:

  • Talk therapy for individuals of all ages, from children to senior citizens
  • Couples counseling
  • Family counseling
  • Group therapy
  • Stress management therapy
  • Mediation for groups of all kinds
  • Life coaching and counseling for personal growth and behavioral change
  • Intervention counseling, preparation and assistance
  • Addiction therapy; assistance with referral/healing
  • Grief counseling
  • Jungian analysis

Our therapists are highly trained, licensed practitioners with varied experience obtained over a combined total of more than 50 years of practice. They have advanced degrees and have been trained in a wide range of therapeutic approaches including Transactional Analysis, Gestalt therapy, Redecision therapy, pastoral counseling, geriatric adjustment and Jungian analysis—as well as the “graduate school” of longtime daily experience with clients. This combination of varied training and many years of real-world experience is important in a counseling practice, as it ensures that whoever walks through our door will be approached and treated in a way that makes the most sense for that particular person and situation.

First and foremost, the Center’s counselors are committed to meeting the needs of our clients and we freely refer, when appropriate, both in-house and to outside individuals or agencies. Our knowledge of other resources in the area and nationwide is extensive. At the same time, our counselors are completely committed to maintaining their clients’ privacy; nothing is shared with other professionals without the client’s express permission. This makes for a secure environment in which the client can relax knowing that his needs are being addressed with discretion and in confidence.

Appointments or inquiries may be made by calling our main number, 910-509-0444, during office hours Monday through Friday, 9:00 am – 4:30 pm.

Sophia D. Caudle, PhD, LPC-S, CSAT

Sophia grew up in Durham, NC, and went to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for undergraduate studies, where she majored in Sociology. After college, Sophia wanted to pursue her interests in working with multi-cultural populations, so she attended North Carolina Central University for her Masters in Community and School Counseling, and she graduated Summa Cum Laude. Sophia's Master's Thesis, entitled, "Moral Dilemma Discussions: Effective Group Intervention for Juvenile Offenders" won the Outstanding Article in the Journal for Group Work in 2001 at the American Counseling Association Conference in San Antonio, Texas. After a several years in the field of counseling, Sophia attended North Carolina State University to obtain her PhD in Counselor Education with a minor in School Administration.

For almost 20 years, Sophia has worked in various settings, such as schools, agencies, and private practice. Sophia also consults for schools and school systems assisting in the program planning of behavior and counseling programs. Sophia also has developed a high-speed coaching model for busy executives whose personal relationships prohibit maximum corporate success and effectiveness.

In Sophia's private practice, she focuses on relationship and intimacy issues, as well as sex and porn addiction, and substance addictions. Mood disorders, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar, and OCD continue to be a large part of her focus as well.

Sophia works with individuals and couples, adults and adolescents.
