Outer Banks Counseling Services

Who we are

OBXCounselorLogoSmallOuter Banks Counseling Services was created by Christie McEwan who is no stranger to the counseling profession or the Outer Banks.  Christie envisioned combining her compassion, personal and professional experiences and education, love for people, and persistent desire to help others break free from the chains that bind them, with her lifelong dream of living at the beach.  Retiring after thirty-plus years as a middle and high school counselor, substance abuse counselor, crisis intervention specialist, teacher, and social worker with the Commonwealth of Virginia, Christie moved to the Outer Banks to work for a private residential treatment center in March, 2013.  Seeing a need for affordable, short-term counseling programs and assistance, Christie, a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist and Nationally Certified Co-Occurring Disorders Professional began her private practice in November, 2013.

Outer Banks Counseling Services offers substance abuse assessments, individual and group counseling, and anger management group counseling programs. We use evidence-based programs in a creative and relevant manner for adults in either individual or group settings.

Anger Management

OBX Counseling issuesDoes your temper cause problems at work or in your relationships?  Do you often feel impatient, annoyed, or frustrated no matter what you do?  You are not alone in feeling some form of on-going anger or irritability.  Anger, one of the least understood emotions, can serve as a warning or can mean that one of your basic needs is not getting met.  Anger is not a problem in itself, but if left untreated or misunderstood, what you do from it can lead to lost relationships, lack of joy in life, health problems, alcohol or drug abuse, or even difficulties with keeping  a job.


Outer Banks Counseling Services, in Nags Head, is offering a solution, “Coping with Anger”.  Through participation in this eight-week program, you will identify and understand your triggers, learn what is underneath the feeling of anger, and how to control it or express it without hurting yourself or anyone else.
