GRETA PITTMAN, MSW,LCSW
Whether you are just beginning therapy for yourself or have experience with it in the past, I am so glad you are here! I strive to make this process of working on your mental health and well-being the best possible experience for you. My name is Greta Pittman, MSW, LCSW and have been working as a clinical therapist in Wilson, NC for four years now. Here is some information about myself in hopes that you choose to work with me.
I found this vocation by sheer fate and am very passionate about my work and helping those from all walks of life, whatever your story may be! A little of my story is that after growing up here in Wilson, NC I attended the University of South Carolina for undergrad. At the beginning of this process I thought I wanted to be a nurse with my parents both being in the medical field. As many humans can relate to, things did not go as planned and ended up in my first Social Work class. My life was forever changed. I discovered my calling in this profession of helping people and cherish every day that I get to work with people in some of their happiest moments in their lives but also some of the darkest.
After completing my Bachelors Degree in Social Work I attended East Carolina University for graduate school in hopes to bring my work home with me to help those in my beloved community of Wilson. After attaining my Master’s in Social Work I knew working with individuals, families, and couples in therapy was where my passion lies.
So far in my career I have counseled those from all walks of life and I like to think I take a unique approach in counseling. Therapy is a very sacred space for all involved and I put a great deal of importance in developing a strong client therapist relationship and to build rapport. I try and be very intentional with myself but you will find that I may be more laid back and free spirited than your average therapist. I utilize self disclosure when appropriate but work to ensure that the therapeutic relationship stays within very healthy boundaries of my Social Work code of ethics. This includes
2. Social justice
3. Dignity and worth of the person
4. Importance of human relationships
I also pride myself in specializing in trauma work as an EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy) trained therapist.
When not at work I love to travel, attend concerts, weekends at the beach, scuba dive, go hiking, and I try to exercise as much as I can for my own mental health. I have been married just over a year now to my wonderful husband Tas and our family includes two cats and a dog.
So that is enough about me… I cannot wait to hear about you! As a people person to the core I will do everything I can to make this process comfortable and meaningful for you. I thank you for your time and most importantly for taking this time to work on yourself. For more questions feel free to contact me via phone or e-mail.
