Shantell Carraway

When you and your spouse are not getting along, it can feel scary, heavy, and hopeless. You may find yourself stuck having the same fights over and over again, not feeling heard, and wondering how you even go there. Sometimes, you wonder if your relationship could ever get back to a good place.

No one should feel like their needs are not being met or like they are trapped in an endless cycle of negativity. Working together, I help couples find hope and equip your “marital toolbox” with the skills you need for a successful relationship.

Hi. My name is Shantell Carraway. I am a therapist here at Mathews Counseling, and I am passionate about helping couples develop and maintain a healthy connection as they navigate life’s transitions.

I approach therapy as a coach and collaborator. No one knows your relationship better than you. So together, we can identify and change negative patterns to create deeper intimacy and real connection. Most importantly, we help build your relationship on authenticity and emotional safety.

I work with couples and individual adults to slow things down, especially in critical moments to identify what “went wrong” so you are able to do something different that can lead to better things.

I am an LMFTA with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from UNC-Greensboro and a Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Northcentral University.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, nature walks, family game nights, and spending time with my husband.

I want to help you achieve the short and long term goals you have set for yourselves and help you build a stronger family unit.

Currently, I have general availability week nights and Saturdays. I also offer Multi-Session Packages. If it sounds like we would be a good fit, call Mathews Counseling today at (919) 587-8018 or book an appointment online.

I look forward to meeting you.

Shantell is currently scheduling new clients for sessions starting on November 30th, 2020 but space is limited. Schedule an appointment today. 

What our clients are saying about Mathews Counseling therapists

“Therapy was tough, but in a good way. It challenged both my husband and me to think about how each of us interacts in the marriage.”

“After seeing several counselors elsewhere, this was the first time I felt genuinely heard and understood.”

“My husband was worried about the therapist “taking sides”, which doesn’t happen.  It’s a collaborative conversation and we are delving into other issues that were not readily on the surface.”
