Meet Benita L. Thornhill, MA, LPCA, LCAS-R

Hello! My name is Benita Thornhill and I am the owner of Coastal Carolina Wellness Connection. Welcome to my blog where you will find information on mental wellness, relationships, parenting and more! If you would like to be a guest blogger, please contact me at!

Coastal Carolina Wellness Connection is a Mental Wellness Counseling Practice located in Jacksonville, North Carolina. I specialize in mental wellness counseling and helping  disconnected couples, angry teens, and frustrated parents.

I created this practice for two reasons. The first reason was to create a space where anyone could come inside and experience the warmth of feeling welcomed, being heard and valued and be able to receive healing and create a new direction for their life. Although, we can not go back and start again, we can always decide to make a new ending.

The second reason was to have a platform to reach out to the community to provide free  informational and motivational  events. The Strong Communiites Series offers FREE community events to increase awareness of mental, physical, and emotional  wellness  in our community to improve individual health, happiness, longevity, and economic stability.  Click here to view events.  For more information or if you would like to be a featured speaker, call 910-546-8533 or email
