Ginny H. Mills, MAEd, LCMHC-S, LCAS, CCS, CEO

It has been my privilege for 30+ years to walk with individuals and families affected by drug use – their own or that of someone they love. Although I'm credentialed as an "addiction specialist," a better description of me would be "hope specialist." I help frustrated, exhausted, and terrified parents find answers and hope, despite watching their children spiral downward because of drug use. They know that nothing else is working, but they refuse to give up. I work collaboratively with parents while also educating, equipping, and inspiring parents to respond wisely (rather than to react instinctively) to their drug-using son or daughter.

Leigh Zick Dongre, PhD, LCMHC, LCAS - Clinical Director

The path to living more fully is an adventure, one I believe has transformed my own life. Each day I am honored and privileged to join people along a path of recovery, self-exploration, and healing. I have helped people break through the obstacles that seem to be holding them back in life. My role as your counselor is to be a knowledgeable, genuine, and empathetic guide along this journey and provide a safe and supportive environment to do so. I strive to help people live their best lives, by reaching more authenticity and self-awareness, and making behavioral changes.

Jimmy Tunstall, MA, LCMHC, CADC, CBST

I feel passionate about helping you create the life you want. As a person in long-term recovery from addiction, my focus is helping you identify and resolve the blocks that may stand between you and your goals. I understand the challenges you face when coming to terms with your addiction and I am dedicated to helping people like you find a better way to live.

Charlie Lawson, Client Services Representative & Recovery Coach

At Full Life Counseling, I serve as both the Client Services Representative and as a Recovery Coach. In my first role, I work to match individuals with counselors on our team who will be a good fit for their needs. I also help guide them to resources in the Winston-Salem, NC and the surrounding areas. I handle all scheduling in office and am the person to call if you have any questions about our services, need directions, etc. In my second role, I work with people in shaping and growing their life in recovery.

Cristina Mounts, Care Coordinator

I'm Cristina, and my role is to support clients, families and the clinical team at Full Life, especially during those critical, chaotic times. Much to my surprise, even though I moved from the Triad to Nashville, I am able to do practically everything from my home office, thanks to modern technology!

Carrie Lee, Billing Specialist

My name is Carrie, and I am honored to serve as the Billing Specialist for Full Life Counseling. I embarked on my professional journey in 2018 as a part-time bookkeeper/backup receptionist at a counseling practice in Iowa, where I discovered my passion for medical billing and coding.

Olivia Greene, Client Services Representative

I’m Olivia Greene, and I am one of the client services representatives here at Full Life. I am at Full Life Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 9-5, so Charlie or I will be the first face you see when you’re in the office! I enjoy getting to greet our in-person clients during the week and assist in the behind the scenes.

Amanda J. Beck, MA, LCMHC, NCC

Finding a counselor you love is like finding a great pair of jeans. Fit matters. Or if you’re a high achiever, maybe it’s like finding business clothes that feel like your own skin or like your favorite pair of jeans instead of a costume. It matters to me that we are a good fit for working together in therapy, because I know that personal exploration, growth and healing can only happen in safe spaces with safe people.

Angel Joel, MA, LCMHC-A, LCAS-A, NCC

We each have our stories that inform who we have become, who we are, and who we aim to be. As I accompany you on your journey of self-discovery, I use a narrative, mindfulness, and strengths-based approach. I am also trauma-informed. You are the author of your story and I help you write it.

Anna Fleig, MDiv, MA, LCMHC, LCAS-A, CST

Have you ever felt like you weren’t being heard? That others don’t really understand what you are going through? Or perhaps they do listen, only to give you unsolicited advice in an attempt to be helpful. As a person who has created change in my own life through the benefit of counseling, I know how important it is for someone to truly listen and help you discover choices that work best for you and your loved ones.

Britta Starke, MSW, LCSW, LCAS, CCS

Welcome to Full Life Counseling and to a journey for which I hope you find worth taking. My name is Britta Starke. I have had the pleasure of being in the behavioral health field for 25 years. I have worked with people of all ages from 6 – 80 years young. I have spent the last 13 years working with folks ages 14 and up.

Brittany Corcoran, LCMHC

Hey. I’m Brittany Corcoran, a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and a person who believes in the core resiliency, power, and goodness of humankind. Practicing at Full Life is a sort of homecoming for me. While earning my Masters in Counseling at Wake Forest University...

Cathey Floyd, MA, LCMHC

I love working with individual, couples and family counseling who have experienced loss of loved ones, substance use disorders, life transitions such as divorce and career changes, aging, stress, anxiety, and depression. I also offer grief counseling for children ages 5-12.

David Spillman, CADC

One of the most important choices I have made in life was to surrender the fight with addiction and ask for help. With support from my wife, family, friends, and employers, I went to a 28-day treatment center. With renewed hope, reduced guilt and shame, and a defined program of action, my life slowly began to change for the better. My health, marriage, career, finances, spirituality, and joy improved.

Jenny Gore, Equine Specialist

With her horses as active partners in outdoor activities, she is devoted to guiding clients through integrated awareness for empowerment, leadership, transformation, and healing.

Katie Nail, MS/Ed.S, LCMHC

For the past 16 years I have had the honor to work with children and teens in a school counseling position. As a school counselor I have worked with countless young people and their families as they navigate the struggles that come with life. Having spent so many years working in the public schools gives me an unique perspective to offer clients with Full Life Counseling. I understand the difficulties in navigating mental health needs in the school setting and beyond.

Lauren Byrd, MA, LCMHC-A

My goal as a counselor is to offer support, unconditional positive regard, and genuineness. I believe we all have the answers we need within ourselves, and I hope that through our work together, you can find your answers. For me, counseling is about empowerment and helping my clients find their inner power.


I specialize in guiding individuals, families, and caregivers through unique obstacles toward self-discovery and recovery. My passion lies in helping people uncover their inner strengths and achieve their recovery goals with confidence.

Marlena L. Del Hierro, MDiv, MA, LCMHC

I am a staff counselor here at Full Life Counseling & Recovery who focuses on forward movement and wellbeing. I take a neuroscientific approach to counseling which means I use a set of therapeutic practices and evidence-based techniques that help you rewire your brain so that you can feel more free, confident, and peaceful.

Rebecca Rankin, MA, LCMHC-A

Life often throws us curve balls and we can be faced with different forks in the road. We make the best choices we can in these moments, even if the outcome is not quite what we expected. Beauty often comes from our willingness to be vulnerable and own our stories even when they can be quite difficult. It is in these times that I want to be a part of your life’s story that enables you to find moments of acceptance and peace.

Sara Bailey, PhD, LCMHC-A

Stories are powerful. As a counselor, I believe that the stories we tell ourselves are the most powerful of all. My greatest privilege is to journey with my clients as they share their stories with me, sometimes speaking them aloud for the very first time, in the sacred space of the therapeutic counseling relationship.

Sarah Marsh, MA, NCC, LCMHC-A

As I have studied and worked in the mental health field, I have observed the healing power of listening to someone’s story and helping them to find words to create their own story. Indeed, I find there is great impact within the occupation of “counselor”, but even more so as a counselor/ storyteller. This is what I aim to be for those who I sit with.

Siedah Miller, MA, LCMHC-A

“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.” Albert Camus

This quote harnesses the foundation of my therapeutic process. I believe within us; we encompass exactly what we need to thrive while accomplishing our deepest desires. Through developing healthy coping skills and challenging cognitive distortions, I believe anything can be attained.
