Hello! My name is Samantha and I am excited to partner with you on your journey toward mental and spiritual healing. My educational background is in sociology (BS) , psychology (MA) and religious studies (BA). I find this combination to be helpful, especially as I encounter people in the Christian faith community who are seeking mental health treatment. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of South Carolina and have been practicing therapy for three years. I use a client centered approach to treatment which means that I use your existing strengths in treatment to empower you toward your therapeutic goals. I am trained in EMDR, CBT and DBT modalities, and have experience working with individuals who have a history of trauma, mood disorders, personality disorders and relational issues. In the context of Christian counseling, I help individuals navigate church and religious centered trauma, explore the deconstruction of harmful paradigms and reconstruct spiritual truths.
