My Approach to Helping
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with an Educational Specialist Degree in Counselor Education from the University of South Carolina. Prior to joining LCC, I worked as a social service worker for a local foster care agency in Columbia. My counseling experience includes working with adults, adolescents, and children that may struggle with a variety of issues such as anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, and other behavioral/emotional issues. I have a special interest in working with teens and younger children to help them learn how to express their emotions, improve communication, establish boundaries and obtain skills that will help set them up for success within their environment. I believe in creating a safe, nurturing and non-judgmental atmosphere in which individuals can feel supported in their efforts to grow, heal and reconnect to their strengths.
