Clarity Clinical Counseling

Hello!  My name is Marlo Watson and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, as well as a Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist. After receiving my Master's Degree in Social Work from UNC-Chapel Hill, I worked as the director of a substance abuse and mental health outpatient treatment center facilitating groups and providing individual therapy for adolescents, adults, and families. I have over 16 years of experience working in the mental health field. I moved into Johnston County and private practice this year in an effort to help individuals and families who suffer with substance abuse and/or mental health difficulties.

I am trained in Orton Gillingham’s Multi-Sensory Education. The Orton Gillingham approach is multi-sensory, kinesthetic, and phonics based. The Orton-Gillingham method has helped me to help individuals who struggle with learning disabilities, ADHD/ADD, and processing delays.

I believe we are all unique individuals and am here to provide support using various forms of evidenced based practice including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, and trauma focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I would like to assist others in exploring their inner strengths and courage to overcome their anxieties, addictions, and depression while improving their self-worth and resilience in a comforting and soothing environment.
