I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in South Carolina
When life is challenging, you do not have to cope on your own. As your counselor, I will join you in your pursuit of healing, wellness, and wholeness; provide a safe place for you to open up; help you make sense of what is going on; offer caring support: and promote growth and positive change. Together, we will choose a therapeutic approach that is tailored to your unique situation and your goals. Throughout the counseling process—which may be short-term or longer, depending on what your situation is—I will be attentive and attuned to you, making sure our time together is valuable, meaningful, and purposeful. I aim to equip you to live more fully and freely. I am familiar with and experienced in a variety of counseling areas. I am specifically trained in crisis and trauma counseling. My services are available to individuals, couples, families, and groups in South Carolina, either at my practice in Myrtle Beach or online.
