Corey Myrick, MSW, LCSWA, graduated with a Bachelors in Social Work and completed a Masters in Social Work degree at UNC Chapel Hill. He has experience utilizing a wide variety of treatment models including cognitive behavioral (CBT) and dialectical behavioral (DBT) therapeutic methods, cognitive processing therapy (CPT), and MI (Motivational Interviewing) to improve symptoms of anxiety, depression, and trauma.
Prior to receiving his Masters degree, Corey worked with young adults transitioning out of foster care and successfully utilized a wide variety of therapeutic techniques and models including cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness, and others. For the past 5 years Corey has practiced in numerous therapeutic settings including school counseling, non-profit agencies, and private practice. He has strengthened his skills in working with individuals from a variety of cultural, social backgrounds and age ranges.
Corey’s approach is very relational and personal to each individual he works with. He believes building rapport and trust is vital to the therapeutic process and enjoys getting to know individuals in their complexities and various identities. He is especially passionate about working with individuals who need assistance in processing their own identities, overcoming self-doubt and negative self-image; working to be comfortable in who they are and advocating for a life where they are fully-realized and appreciated. Ultimately, Corey is passionate about empowering clients in processing difficult emotions and experiences and identifying life enhancing coping skills.
Corey believes therapeutic settings should be inclusive and that staff identities and experiences should reflect those of a diverse client population. He is looking forward to providing encompassing and whole-person care through his role at Advaita Integrated Medicine, all while connecting clients to resources and services that best fit their unique needs. He provides services via telehealth, and in-person at our Raleigh, North Carolina, and Cary, North Carolina locations.
