Sandra Milling is a doctoral candidate in Clinical Health Psychology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, with a minor in Sociology. After getting her undergraduate degree, Sandra attended East Carolina University (ECU) where she earned the following Master of Science Degrees: 1) Rehabilitation Counseling and 2) Substance Abuse and Clinical Counseling. As a graduate student at ECU, Sandra trained in substance abuse clinics and a vocational rehabilitation center. During her training as a doctoral student, Sandra has worked in both a counseling center setting, as well as a primary healthcare setting. Sandra's areas of interest include trauma-related issues, health behavior changes, relationship concerns, LGBTQ, substance use, multicultural issues, and outreach. She is passionate about providing both individual and group therapy services. Sandra’s approach to counseling is client-centered, collaborative, and affirming. In her practice, an important focus in treatment is building on client’s strengths and tailoring interventions to meet each individual’s unique needs.  Her theoretical orientation is integrative and emphasizes interpersonal process, emotion-focused, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness-based therapies. In her personal time, Sandra enjoys spending time with family and friends, hiking with her dog, Sydney, and traveling. She also loves eating delicious food, crafting, and practicing yoga.

Mandi Quay is a doctoral candidate from James Madison University’s Combined-Integrated Clinical and School Psychology Psy.D. program in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

As a graduate student, Mandi trained in a public school, two university counseling centers, and a community mental health center. In addition to providing individual therapy, Mandi enjoys group therapy and campus outreach and prevention. She is also particularly interested in mindfulness and its intersection with human consciousness, sociological factors influencing the rise of the College Student Mental Health Crisis, anxiety, the Big Five personality traits, and trauma work. Mandi approaches counseling from a highly integrative and client-centered perspective and finds that her integrative theoretical orientation pulls especially for a humanistic/feminist, psychodynamic/3rd wave CBT approach.
In her free time, Mandi likes spending time with her family and dogs, finger painting, exercising, and binge watching Netflix.

Matt Morgan, Psy.D. is a postdoctoral resident from La Salle University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He earned his Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from The College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA, and a terminal Masters in Clinical-Counseling Psychology from La Salle University. While in graduate school, he completed his practicums and worked in inpatient psychiatric hospitals, community mental health clinics, and a college counseling center in the Philadelphia region. His dissertation was on validating the Philadelphia Mindfulness Scale, a two-factor (acceptance and awareness) measure of mindfulness, on experienced meditators and the general public. His primary approach is contextual cognitive-behavioral (ACT), but is informed by psychodynamic, existential, and transpersonal approaches. He enjoys working with a wide range of individuals, as all varieties of psychological distress inform aspects of the human experience. In his spare time, Matt enjoys spending time with friends, creating and performing music, team-oriented video games, learning, exercise, and cooking.

Charles Russell is a recent graduate of The Institute for the Psychological Sciences at Arlington, Virginia, where he earned both his Masters and doctorate in Clinical Psychology. He received a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from Sacred Heart at Detroit, Michigan. Charles has had a variety of clinical experiences. He began his clinical training in community mental health at IPS Center for Psychological Services. Charles completed a clinical placement in private practice at Expressive Therapy Center in North Potomac, Maryland. Prior to his post-doctoral residency at App State, Charles worked as a doctoral intern at The University of North Dakota Counseling Center at Grand Forks, North Dakota. Charles’ clinical interests are as broad as his experience, including life transitions, existential questions, development of personality, psychological maturity, coping, as well as cultivating personal freedom, and human dignity. In his clinical work, Charles has worked successfully with people across the lifespan who have experienced a wide variety of concerns in contexts of individual, couple, and group therapies. Charles tailors treatment to meet the needs of individuals. Often his work integrates psychodynamic, interpersonal, emotion-focused, cognitive-behavioral, and solution oriented techniques. When working with couples, Charles uses a specific therapy model called Relationship Enhancement. Charles has also been trained in and uses EMDR, a treatment for those who have had disturbing life experiences. In his personal life, Charles enjoys spending time with family and friends, competitive wookie calling, music, dancing, being offended, travel, new cultural experiences, jaywalking, learning, as well as asking irrelevant and absurd questions at inappropriate times.

The Center is fortunate to have such capable interns and post doctoral residents. We look forward to the special skills, abilities, and personalities that they bring to the Center, the students, and the Appalachian community.
