About Me

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.

Samantha has been fantastic at listening to me, challenging me in the right ways, and I can't imagine having anyone else to walk through what I am going through in my life.
