Side By Side Counseling



Over 30 Years of Providing Effective Therapy/Counsleing


Michael G. Morris & Side by Side Counseling bring you...

A happier and healthier you in only a few minutes a day.

Side By Side Counseling is a small, very successful private practice that emerged out of Mr. Michael Morris’ work in various mental health hospitals while in graduate school and seven years of working as a therapist and counselor in the North Carolina Mental Health System. The clients at Side By Side feel as if they truly have a therapist who has their best interest at heart.

Side By Side Counseling is well known in the therapeutic community in Eastern North Carolina. While the practice is located in Greenville, Side By Side serves Pitt and all of the surrounding counties. This practice refers to highly successful and professional inpatient programs throughout the country.

What is not well known about Side By Side Counseling is that it essentially grew out of a promise Mr. Morris made to his family over the death of one of his cousins who was killed in a drug-related incident. Once given the opportunity, Mr. Morris committed himself to creating a venue to keep that promise. That venue became Side By Side Counseling.

The name also symbolizes the respect that Mr. Morris has for the clients' own knowledge and skills. Together, this team approach helps build the trust, dignity, and integrity that it takes to make change successful.

The philosophy of Side By Side developed out of Mr. Morris’ course work in both clinical and pastoral counseling. Side By Side is a blend of both approaches, which gives him the ability to communicate with a much broader spectrum of the population because it draws on the similarities between psychology, theology, and philosophy.

This open-minded approach facilitates a more thorough and successful therapeutic experience for people with broadly diverse backgrounds. There are very few, if any, issues that have not been successfully dealt with here at Side By Side Counseling.

"The Foundation 40 Lifestyle"

Side By Side Counseling
"Your Life!

Your Way!"

Most of us have experience with forgotten or abandoned dreams, plans that somehow just did not work out, and/or lifestyles that are not quite what we had hoped for. We can re-establish these things in our lives. What's more, we should. Everyone deserves a happier and healthier life. It is my personal belief that this life is a gift. It was meant to be enjoyed to the fullest.

We are not here on this earth to suffer or cause suffering. I believe that this life does come from God, and it was meant to be shared. GO after the things that your mind, heart, and spirit desire. These things are within you for a reason.

Do not let anyone deter you from all of the gifts, happiness, and health that I believe God intends for you in this life. I hope you will benefit greatly from my The Foundation Lifestyle: “Your Life! Your Way!” Program.

"Sincerely, and with deep appreciation, I wish you the happiest and healthiest life possible."
