Temporary Staff

Matt Bishop, Counselor

I use an ACT-informed approach coupled with interventions from many frameworks including narrative therapy, expressive arts therapy, and DBT. I love working with young adults and especially on issues related to anxiety, interpersonal relationships, and identity development.

Amy Fitzgerald, Counselor

I have a professional and personal interest in trauma-informed yoga, mindfulness, and restorative integration (iRest) which is also a somatic practice. Working with adoptive families for over a decade, I have a passion for working with teens/adults around issues of self-identity, grief, loss, abandonment, and trauma. I am intentionally transitioning to more full-time direct counseling at present and completing my adoption work. Grateful to be with such an amazing group of folks at the NC State CC.

Julie Spittler, Counselor

I specialize in trauma treatment. I enjoy working with individuals to explore how your experiences have shaped who you are, how you see yourself, and how you operate in the world. I appreciate skills-based interventions alongside a psychodynamic approach.

Luke Strawn, Counselor

While eclectic in theory and practice based upon individual experiences and concerns, I approach counseling through a person-centered focus while also implementing techniques associated with mindfulness and unconditional positive regard. When necessary, I also approach counseling through a solution-focused lens to account for a short-term counseling model.

I have a strong interest working with LGBTQIA+ clients, specifically with gender and sexual identity concerns, as well as those whose lives are impacted by substance use. I also firmly believe that a multifaceted approach to counseling benefits my clients, all of whom possess individual life experiences based upon their intersectional identities. Everyone has their own stories, shaped by identities and experiences, and I strive to honor these stories and create a space that is healing and supportive.

Brittney Yetter, Counselor

I am a LCMHCA, who enjoys working with students in an on-campus setting. I have experience working with a variety presenting concerns, such as stress-management, depression, anxiety, communication, relationships, grief, and cultural concerns. I adhere to a therapeutic approach that is primarily Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which also incorporates elements of Person-Centered Therapy. The types of interventions I use are dependent on client needs and will be discussed in session. My particular focus is tailored to the needs of the client(s). Through a collaborative effort, I wish to create a safe space where students’ can discuss their life experiences and goals for counseling.
