Grace and Peace! The things I share below are meant to inform you about who I am, my experiences, and how I've chosen to live my life. I tell my staff we can't lead others where we ourselves haven't been, and you need to know a bit of my story to decide if you want to counsel with me 😉

At the age of 18, the book The Road Less Travelled began my fascination with the human soul - and at age 24, after an encounter with God while on retreat, it exploded into a committed passion. With my own story filled with wounds and the unmet need for someone to show me the way through the pain, this new passion led me to read, study, and train voraciously in areas I came to understand as "depth psychology", "inner healing", "discipleship", "spiritual formation", "spiritual direction", "biblical counseling", and "spiritual rescue".​​​​​​​

I perceive the over-arching work of Counseling to be the identification of what I call "Discrepancy" (the gap between our current being and circumstance and God's loving intention for us), and then discovering, together, how Truth (a construct of the Triune God and Scripture) meets our needs and desires for healing, vision, hope, and justice in our lives.

My professional career has spanned adolescent to adult populations conducting Individual, PreMarital, Marital, Family, Employee Assistance Program, and Crisis forms of Counseling across residential foster care, community mental health, crisis call center, and Biblical counseling settings. In August 2013, I entered private practice; and since then, many of my Clients have completed their Counseling work and chosen to transition into a Spiritual Formation/Discipleship relationship with me. Preceding my professional counseling career, I was a Camp Counselor, Big Brother, worked in Kairos Prison Ministry, served on Tres Dias Retreat Teams for the State of Maine, was an Adult and Teen Sunday School Teacher, and served as a Sunday School Superintendent. I also have experience as a Worship Leader, both in laity and church-staff positions.

I was born and raised in Central Pennsylvania, graduated Valedictorian, earned my Eagle Scout and God & Country Awards while a Boy Scout, as well as my Black Belt in Chinmukwan Tae Kwon Do before graduating from highschool. I graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston with a degree in Music Production and Engineering, Magna Cum Laude Honors, and graduated from Liberty University with High Distinction Honors. After schooling in Boston, I lived ten years in Maine while working music and recording industry at the world-renowned Gateway Mastering & DVD; but since 2003, I have gladly called North Carolina home!

I have been married for 26 years and have three adult children (two daughters and a son) whom we homeschooled K-12. My eldest Daughter (22) is a Missionary, having graduated from Fire and Fragrance Discipleship Training School and Revival and Reformation Discipleship Bible School, both through Youth With A Mission's (YWAM), Kona, Hawaii base at the University of Nations. She was on mission in India; and in 2023, will be on tour as a dancer with YWAM Boston's Creative Arts Tour. My next eldest Daughter (20) is also a Missionary, having graduated from both Discipleship Training School and Discipleship Bible School at YWAM's Boston-based Creative Arts campus - and in JAN 2022, became the Theatre Arts Director for YWAM Boston, discipling and training schools of students personally and preparing them for a national evangelistic tour. She is married to a fellow Missionary. My Son (18) is a Certificate of Excellence recipient from Summit Ministries Christian Leadership, Apologetics, and Worldview Studies Program; studies Jiu Jitsu, works, volunteers at Teen Valley Ranch in Plumtree, NC, and is presently staging his life for a move to western NC.

I am a tennis enthusiast and have a history of Captaining USTA Men's Tennis Teams 😊

I look forward to working with you!

Nicole Mooney

- Nicole is presently accepting new Clients -

After experiencing my own heartache and brokenness in life, I had nowhere to turn but to God - and He met me with comfort, love, and healing. It was during that season I felt God call me to Counseling as a profession. I honestly can’t imagine doing anything else! I truly LOVE what I do!

I feel most passionate about Marital and PreMarital Counseling; I enjoy working with Couples to strengthen and restore their relationship to find true joy and love in their marriage. Over the course of my own marriage I have learned that, although marriage is not easy, marriage and family are among God's greatest gifts and can be enjoyed to their fullest!

I also counsel individuals in areas such as (but not limited to) Depression, Anxiety,  Life-transitions, and Trauma. I consider God to be the ultimate counselor, and therefore, use a Christ-centered, Biblical approach in my work with clients. 

Jesus tells us that our lives will be filled with trouble, and His life was no exception. Even though life isn’t easy, we have hope in Jesus; He may not always remove our problems, but He will help us grow through the problems and grow closer to Him. My desire is to be as Christ - a clear voice of reason, hope, love, and wisdom. Jesus said, “I have told you these things, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have trouble. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” Even in the midst of our brokenness there is the promise that the Lord will not abandon us; we know He will walk with us through our suffering. I try to walk beside my Clients just as the Lord does, praying that my clients can feel God’s love shine through me and come to see themselves through the eyes of the Lord!

As serious struggles and challenges of life come our way, it is not uncommon to get stuck in unproductive cycles, unpleasant emotions, or crippling hardships. As a Christian counselor, I recognize these debilitating states and will work to strengthen you, to see things you may not see, to have you try things you may not have tried, and to encourage you in times requiring long-suffering…

I am a Colorado native who moved to the beautiful state of North Carolina three years ago. In my free time I enjoy hiking, going to the beach, and trying new food with my husband. I also enjoy being outside and taking walks – time that allows me to reflect, pray, and draw closer to God.

I look forward to hearing from you!

“I carry hope that people can adopt new names

and build new stories that bloom from their ashes”

Lauren Caulberg

Lauren has graduated and has passed her Licensing Exam! We are presently waiting on the Licensing Board to officially grant her Credential so she can being working; in the meantime, you may ask to be placed on her Wait List!

Going through various trials and battles with grief has also shaped how I relate to others who have also faced the troubles of life that are inevitable, and are the result of living in a fallen world. I have learned there are always things to be thankful for, even amid adversity and disappointment; I look forward to helping you find healing and teaching you how to obtain a mindset of thankfulness, too!

I aim to help every client realize that they are an individual created by God, first and foremost. I start with a blank-slate perspective: people are not simply a result of their experiences or mistakes – though these things can influence a person’s personality and functioning, Scripture also teaches that God can produce beauty from ashes (Isaiah 61:3). I believe that people can adopt new names and become new creations in Christ. I strive to lead people to truth from God’s word and present the hope that Jesus offers to every soul. But first, I simply meet them where they are.

I am a North Carolina native, raised in the Triangle area and in the church. I enjoy exploring nature and allowing myself to breathe, letting go of stressors and the distractions of life. Music has always spoken to my heart and been a source of comfort, and painting and growing house plants are therapeutic activities I implement for myself (even counselors must find things they love to do as a form of self-care!).

I have always had the desire to connect with anyone I meet, and the ability to empathize seems to be a grace God granted me out of the gate 😊.  I look forward to hearing from you!

“Having been a counseling client myself, I found that the greatest comfort and progress comes from counseling experiences that are authentically gracious, loving, and hopeful


Will is presently full. You may still ask to be placed on his Wait List. Peace!

We all have expectations of how our life will go - so what do we do when life brings us pain and obstacles instead?

It wasn't until my darkest hour that I discovered how God chooses to work through interpersonal relationships to reveal His Grace, Love, and Hope in Christ. Having been a counseling client myself, I found the greatest comfort and progress comes from counseling experiences that are authentically demonstrating those characteristcs. Whatever you are facing, I want to hear your story and work with you to find healing, renewed purpose, and establish tools to aid in building resilience for the inevitable difficulties you will encounter down the road of your life.

My areas of interest include (but are not limited to) Anxiety, Panic Disorder, Depression, Sexual/Pornography Addictions, Anger, and Spiritual Growth. 

I was born and raised in Raleigh, NC where I now live with my beautiful wife and our fluffy Great Pyrenees. As a North Carolina native, I love visiting the beach and traveling to the mountains to hit the slopes in the winter. Sports, fitness, and reading just about any book I can get my hands on have always been passions of mine - and I love learning what other people are passionate about!

Reaching out for counseling can be intimidating; seeking help is such a courageous first step!

I look forward to talking with you soon!

I love working with people and getting them help to become the person God wants them to be! 

Everyone goes through mountains and valleys; I sure have had mine. God has done a lot of work in my life. I have worked closely with people from various backgrounds and cultures in several nations. It is very satisfying to come alongside people and help them through some of the most challenging times of their lives.

Having gone through trauma, I understand what people go through in their lives. God has taken me on a journey of healing, recovery, and deliverance. I want to help you with your journey. No situation is too small for God. I will be here to help you with the small and big problems life throws at you.

I’ve been married 24 years, have an adult Son and an adult Daughter, and am a GrandMother! I love my family, gardening, learning new things, and going on mission trips. My passion is to help people receive the healing available through Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, as Isaiah prophesied about Jesus, "by his stripes we are healed." I love Isaiah 61:3 “And provide for those who grieve in Zion – to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.”

I want to help and come alongside you in your journey of healing, recovery, and deliverance. Jesus came to give us life and life abundantly. So come journey with us to experience God's wonderful gift and walk in freedom!
