Our Therapists

Marlo Watson, MSW, LCSW, LCAS, CSI

I am a graduate of UNC Chapel Hill and licensed in the areas of Substance Abuse and Mental Health. I have experience working with individuals/families suffering from Substance Abuse (specializing in Opiate Addictions), Learning Disabilities, Depression, Anxiety, Parenting, and PTSD. I utilize Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy,  Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and components of DBT.

I am trained in the yoga practice,  which according to Georg Feuerstein, "Yoga therapy is of modern coinage and represents a first effort to integrate traditional yogic concepts and techniques with Western medical and psychological knowledge."  This approach allows me to work with a variety of individuals using innovative strategies to achieve optimal outcomes.

Newly licensed LCSW and LCAS? I supervise newly licensed clinicians looking to obtain full licensure in a supportive and collaborative relationship.

Alex Riddick, MSW, LCSW, LCAS

I am a graduate of East Carolina University with a Master’s Degree in Social Work and a certificate in Substance Abuse. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist specializing in Opioid Addictions.  I have provided individual therapy and facilitated groups including Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient (SAIOP) groups.

Whether you are feeling helpless and hopeless, overcome by anxiety, haunted by trauma, battling addiction, or just seeking personal development I can support you through this challenging but rewarding journey!

Our Therapy

Depression & Anxiety

You are not alone! Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you long to have in your life. 


Trauma & PTSD

Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. 

 Our modalities of treatment include Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Yoga, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).


Substance Use Disorders and Behavioral Addictions can be exhausting for the individual, family, and friends.  Are you tired of being tired? We can help you gain clarity on why you keep allowing yourself to suffer.  There is a reason why you struggle to simply stop.  If only it were that easy?! We will work with you and family to develop effective strategies to live and addiction free life.
