Side by Side Counseling is a small, very successful private practice that emerged out of Mr. Michael Morris’ work in various mental health hospitals while in Graduate school and seven years of working as a therapist and counselor in the North Carolina Mental Health System. The clients at Side By Side feel as if they truly have a therapist who has their best interest at heart.
Side by Side Counseling is well known in the therapeutic community in Eastern North Carolina. While the practice is located in Greenville, Side By Side serves Pitt and all of the surrounding counties. This practice is also the number one referral source to Fellowship Hall, a nationally renowned inpatient facility located in Greensboro, North Carolina.
What is not well known about Side by Side Counseling is that it essentially grew out of a promise Mr. Morris made to his family over the death of one of his cousins who was killed in a drug related incident. Once given the opportunity, Mr. Morris committed himself to creating a venue to keep that promise. That venue became Side By Side Counseling. The name also symbolizes the respect that Mr. Morris has for the clients own knowledge and skills. Together, this team approach helps build the trust, dignity, and integrity that it takes to make change successful.
The philosophy of Side By Side developed out of Mr. Morris’ course work in both clinical and pastoral counseling. Side By Side is a blend of both approaches which gives him the ability to communicate with a much broader spectrum of the population because it draws on the similarities between psychology, theology, and philosophy. This open minded approach facilitates a more thorough and successful therapeutic experience to people with broadly diverse backgrounds. There are very few, if any, issues that have not been successfully dealt with here at Side By Side Counseling.
