Meet the Staff

Area Clinical Director

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a diverse background treating mental health and substance abuse disorders.  I received my master's degree in counselor education with an emphasis in community and addiction from The College of William & Mary. I have worked in emergency services and crisis intervention for three different Virginia community services boards. Since 2010, I have been supervising community-based programs in the New River Valley.  My current interests include clinical supervision, program management, and leadership, as well as recruiting and training future human services professionals. I have a natural love of helping people.

Kristi Brim Rakes, LCSW 

Area Personnel Director

I have a bachelors in Social Work from UNC-Greensboro, and graduated from UNC Chapel Hill with my Masters of Social Work in 2007.  I have a passion for families and I strive to be a resource to helping people recognize their strengths and assist in giving them the tools to be more successful in their daily lives.  Since obtaining my LCSW in 2010 I have provided individual, and family therapy in an outpatient setting, working with children, adults, and elderly disabled adults.  I have found reward and fulfillment in being able to work with multiple populations.  I am a certified Trauma Focused CBT counselor through NC Child Treatment Program, which has been a great benefit in my work with children, as well as families who have experienced trauma.  I was privileged to be offered a position with NCG and since that time have found a new passion with providing supervision and program oversight, I am able to utilize my past skills as well as being challenged with learning. 

Clinical Supervisor

I attended Old Dominion University and earned a Graduate Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Due to graduating in the top 5% of my class, I was inducted into the Omega Delta Chapter of Chi Sigma Iota. One sincerely most have a heart for the people to work in a position that serve others. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC, which has allotted me the opportunity to work with children, adults, and families abroad. Throughout the years, I have learn as long as an individual has breath, there is hope and an opportunity to change for the better. It is NCG standard to provide the most highest, competent, and quality of services everyday. For this reason, not only does this aligns with my integrity, but ensure clients they are being serve at the highest Standard of Care. On my days off, I love to be on film/theater/ and commercial sets. The ability to reach and uplift others in a positive manner as an actress through television is aspiring and a ministry for me that I can continue to be a positive role model and leader.

Clinical Supervisor

I have over 10 years experience working in the mental health profession in both in-patient and outpatient settings. I possess a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s in Mental Health Counseling. My passion is working with children and families in need of services and support. I have experienced the greatest professional growth during my work in trauma. I have found that adverse life experiences can negatively impact others at every level-physically, spiritually, psychologically, emotionally, and relationally. My overall goal is to bring support and healing to the community to promote greater resilience and an enhanced quality of life for others. Shortly, i plan to become an LPC with the state of Virginia. In my leisure time I practice self-care by reading, watching Netflix, and taking a nap with my dog.
