What makes me do the things I do? Sometimes our own behavior baffles us, especially when we know it isn't effective in a given situation. One of my greatest strengths is in drawing connections between events in your environment or past and how they shape your response to the present problem. We then work together to shape a new response that adequately addresses the problem. We absolutely are capable of change.
I spend the first session conducting a broad assessment to find out as much about you as I can, so that I can be of greatest help to you. We'll put on paper what you hope to accomplish in counseling; that way we have a direction to work toward. If you feel the first session was helpful, we schedule another. I ask questions and listen. I act as a sounding board, reality check, and help you work through what comes up. When I spot self-defeating beliefs, self-talk, or body language, I bring that out in the open for us to process and work through.
I serve clients from all over South Carolina both in-person and virtually, depending on your preference.
I began Hidden Creek Counseling in 2012 and find this work is a great fit. There isn't anything else I'd rather do professionally.
I'm a Class of '99 graduate from the USC College of Social Work and have previously worked at Three Rivers Behavioral Health and the SC Recovering Professional Program. I have previously served as a board member of the LRADAC Foundation and commission member of the SC Bar Lawyers Helping Lawyers Program. Outside of the office, you can find me at the gym, in the woods, or on the water. I also support recycling whenever possible.
