DR. MULLINIX IS NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS.
Specializing in assisting adults with mid to late career development, job search and retirement transition issues, Steve is a NC Licensed Psychologist and Partner with HRC Behavioral Health and Psychiatry. He received his PhD in Counseling Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1978.
Steve has been at HRC since 1990 and served as Chair of the Board from 2000 to 2011. He is a native North Carolinian, but before moving back to NC in 1990 he worked in university mental health for 12 years. He was Director of the University Counseling Service at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Director of the University of Pennsylvania’s Counseling Service in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Prior to pursuing his graduate work, he served as a US Army Officer and was a helicopter pilot in South Vietnam from 1971-72.
Steve’s training in Counseling Psychology supports his more psychological “developmental task” or “life phase” approach to a client’s issues and concerns. Rather than a focus on diagnosis or pathology, his work with a client adapts to where the client “is” currently in her/his life – whether that be struggling with issues of establishing oneself in a career, wanting a more satisfying relationship, managing the stress of job, family or financial responsibilities, enhancing self-confidence/self-esteem, or dealing with the effects of recent or past traumatic situations.
Steve uses his broad experience and training in various modalities of therapy and counseling (relationship centered, cognitive behavioral, hypnotherapy, EMDR, career development) to work collaboratively with a client to identify and reach identifiable goals and outcomes. Many people come for him to be their objective “sounding board”; others for help in getting unstuck, calming fears, gaining perspective and being urged toward action. Warm, supportive, challenging and genuine would be characteristics past clients would identify with him.
