Ginny H. Mills, MAEd, LPC, LCAS, Clinical Director
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.
Ann Dixon Coppage, MAEd, LPC-S, NCC
Life surprises us in both exciting and discouraging ways. I would feel privileged to work with you as you grow, change, and develop- learning to better cope as you become more fully whole. My 30+ years in counseling, yield a breadth and depth of experience to help you when dealing with anxiety, depression, grief, loss, communication difficulties, marriage concerns, family problems, life adjustment, faith-related struggles, as well as the effects of addiction both on individuals in recovery and those in relationship with them.
Anna Fleig, MDiv, MA, LPC-A, LCAS-A
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.
David Spillman, CSAC, Intensive Outpatient Coordinator
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.
James H. Tunstall, CSAC, DBTC
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.
Leigh Zick Dongre, PhD, LPC, LCAS-A
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.
Marlena L. Del Hierro, MDiv, MA, LPC-A, LCAS-A
Have you read self-help books in an effort to change things in your life? Or maybe you’ve sought the counsel of people close to you but still struggle with finding a solution. Perhaps you haven’t consulted anyone or anything because you feel embarrassed or think you should be able to do it by yourself? If this sounds familiar, I invite you to work with me. I am a relational counselor and am open, warm, nonjudgmental, and guarantee laughter in sessions.
Regina Abdou, MA, LPC, LCAS, CSAPC
I am a psychotherapist and clinical supervisor in NC and NY states with over 30 years of experience. I currently have a private practice in Winston-Salem, NC and offer General, Addictions Counseling and Somatic Experiencing Trauma work with adults through Full Life.
Reneé Colclough Hinson, PhD, Practicing Psychologist
Do you cope with stress with excesses that create additional problems – perfectionism, overworking, overeating, or using substances? I work with clients on women’s issues, particularly weight gain and poor body image, by addressing the underlying codependency, anxiety, depression, or trauma that often lead to them. In my 25 years as a clinical psychologist, I have provided psychotherapy, psychological assessment and taught university/medical students. I would be honored to use all my experiences to walk you through the self-exploration and new skill building necessary to get you to (or back to) your best self!
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.
Susan J. Avery, Office Manager / BA Psychology
I have been with Full Life since 2013 as the Office Manager. I am the "go-to" person for many things at Full Life. As an Enneagram Type 2, "The Helper," I am here to help you with all things "financial" --- billing, superbills, insurance filing (if you have CBHA), record keeping, SoberLink accounts & more.
Alternative healing modalities like aromatherapy and Soul Collage® have emerged as wonderful resources that I want to share with others to help them experience natural healing in new and creative ways. I am a certified aromatherapist recognized by the New York Institute of Aromatic Studies.
Dan Hogue, Intervention & Sober Support
I'm Dan, and I've been working in the addiction field since 2005 when I joined the team at Hanley Center as their Director of Educational Services. Hanley Center was (and is still) near and dear to my heart. I've been a North Carolinian now since moving to Charlotte in 2006, where I live with my spoiled rotten dog, Samantha.
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!
