CareNet Piedmont Triad center counselor appears in journal and podcast

Les Gura, a licensed clinical mental health counselor associate with CareNet’s Piedmont Triad center, Counseling, was recently featured in a podcast for The Thoughtful Counselor in which he explains the origins and value of a narrative therapeutic intervention he uses with clients.

Les previously wrote about the 3-word narrative technique—a means to help forge the therapeutic relationship and help clients zoom in on the “heart of the matter” issue—in the November edition of Counseling Today, the magazine of the American Counseling Association.

Les Gura has been interested in narratives his entire life. After 35-plus years as an award-winning journalist, writer and editor, his own narrative took a turn in 2016 when he entered graduate school to become a clinical mental health counselor. He earned his master’s degree from Wake Forest University in the spring and joined CareNet Counseling in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, in September. He is a national certified counselor and a licensed professional counselor associate.
