Welcome to BK Professional Counseling Center, LLC!


Rhonda Lazenby, BS, CSAC, QDAP, QMHP


I have worked in the field of Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services for over 20 years. Began at “Willie M’ group home and worked at Social Services as a Social Worker for several years. Also, was one of the first Social Workers to help implement the “welfare to work” program implemented in the 90’s. What a challenge. Worked for a Mental Health/Substance Abuse LME facility for 7 years and the first position there was the contract Mental Health/Substance Abuse Services for a Juvenile Detention Center. Then went on to serve as the Clinician that covered emergency services for two counties, Gaston and Lincoln. This entailed providing assessments and ensuring admission to inpatient and outpatient services to meet the needs of patients in crisis.


Forensic Screening. I have worked in the fields of MH/SA treatment for over 21 years. DWI Services implementation and service delivery. Psychiatric counselor for 6 years and MH/SA Liason for 7 years. Worked with Juvenile and Adults in both capacities.
