Destiny Faison (she/her)

Clinical Intern, Wake Forest University

My name is Destiny Faison (she/her/hers), and I am thrilled to be a part of the Three Oaks team as a Clinical Intern. Since my childhood, I have always had a passion for helping others. Making a difference in people’s lives and in society has always been my aspiration. My desire is to help people be their best selves by giving hope and guidance during life challenges.   

I am currently in the process of earning my Master of Clinical Mental Health Counseling degree at Wake Forest University and earned my Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 2021 from East Carolina University. I have worked in the mental health field since September 2021 at a mental health practice in Cary, NC. I began as an administrative assistant and have since been promoted to Director of Patient Services. I have learned a lot about mental health in this role and am looking forward to gaining new knowledge and experience as I work toward my goal of becoming a mental health counselor. 

I understand how challenging life can be and how scary the idea of therapy is. My goal as an intern here at Three Oaks is to create a safe space for clients and to build a trusting relationship where clients feel supported and heard. My goal is to also help clients discover their self-worth and build coping skills to tackle life stressors. Altogether, my hope is for clients to know that they are not alone in this journey. 

I am interested in gaining experience in working with adolescents and adults who deal with depression, anxiety, trauma, life transitions, grief/loss, and other interpersonal issues. I also have an interest in working with other populations as well. I appreciate diversity in every aspect (race, gender, ability, sexual orientation, etc.) and seek to understand my clients in terms of their unique experiences, culture, spirituality, and other orientations. I look forward to working with all individuals while utilizing various evidence-based practices. 

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, trying new foods, and relaxing. I am very excited about this journey and look forward to working with you!
