Heily Aktuglu-McGowan

I joined Sand Dollar Wellness Center in 2019 and have 5+ years of experience in mental health. I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate (LPCA), a Licensed Professional School Counselor and a Life Coach since … I specialize in working with adolescents, teens and young adults. I provide individual counseling as well as small support groups in: Girl Empowerment, School Success, Stress and Healthy Living, and Mother’s Support Group. My goal in counseling is to bring out the best in everyone. I recently introduced Nature Therapy and Walking Therapy into my counseling sessions for clients who like the outdoors. I also like to incorporate Positive Psychology and Humor into my sessions. I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from UNCW and my Masters of Education in School Counseling at Salem College.
