Sunday, 7:30 a.m.
Tune-in to hear Relationship Helpers, Sunday mornings at 7:30 during WSIC’s Morning Worship.
Life is centered around relationships. As individuals, we have relationships with family members, co-workers, friends and even those who we meet briefly during a public interaction. It’s all based on relationships. Counselors Vincent and Laura Ketchie discuss these important connections each Sunday on Relationship Helpers and provide ways to improve them for greater success. Some of the topics covered include: relevant issues for today’s families, marriage, teens and parents, social skills and setting appropriate boundaries.
Get to know Vincent
I am a Mooresville native, growing up in the Shepherds community. I attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. After graduation, I worked at Connie Maxwell Baptist Children’s Home in Greenwood, SC. I enjoy working with children and helping them develop strong, healthy spirits.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (#8916). I received my Master’s degree in Agency Counseling from Lenoir-Rhyne University in 2011. During my internships, I worked in the Delta Unit at Davis Regional Medical Center and at New River Behavioral Healthcare, which are both located in Statesville, NC. I enjoy working with men and women of all ages as well as couples.
Life is difficult. It is easy to get bogged down by its complexities and lose focus. I feel that my greatest strength is being an encourager. As your counselor, I will encourage you and help you view your issues in a new, fresh light.
I am a very visual person. We will work together as a team to diagram, list, or draw out the issues at hand. At your pace, we will set realistic, achievable goals. I will utilize Reality, Cognitive-Behavioral, and Gestalt therapies.
I enjoy meeting new people. I look forward to helping you obtain the freedom and zest for life that you have always desired.
I relax by reading dense historical biographies, playing recreational tennis and basketball, petting my dogs, and cooking with my wife. I also paint in watercolors and design stained glass windows.

I am a Mooresville native, having grown up on Lake Norman. I have called this area “home” all my life, and am excited to have the opportunity to help others who live here. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (NC#8694), having received my Master’s degree in agency counseling from Lenoir-Rhyne University.
As your counselor, I will work with you to establish goals and learn new ways to cope with life’s issues. For those interested in therapy from a Christian perspective, I will work to meet you where you are spiritually, helping to heal past wounds and working to build healthier life skills. Change does not come easy. I will aid in encouraging clients towards making those important steps towards change. As a team we will search for problem areas, and we will develop ways to overcome them. As a counselor it is my responsibility to listen and to facilitate growth. It is my belief that the client has strong responsibility in the process as well. It takes work to grow, and the client must be prepared for this. Therapy can have wonderful results, but that does not mean that we will not meet rocks and bumps along the journey. Growth requires peaks and valleys.
In my practice I will match my client with the appropriate theoretical approach(es). I am prepared to work using Reality, Cognitive-Behavioral, and Gestalt therapies. Issues will be addressed and goals will be created. Therapy does not end at the end of a session. A client’s therapy follows him or her out into the workplace, into the home, and into the public. We will work together to create homework assignments that will improve the issues at hand in these arenas.
I look forward to finding the opportunities for growth in each and every client. I enjoy music, musical theater, baking (I find baking “therapeutic”), reading and gardening.
