    Let's Get Started.

    We offer a wide variety of counseling, assessment, clinical supervision, and consultation services.

    We employ a variety of therapy techniques tailored to your specific needs. My style of therapy usually includes some form of homework aimed at maximizing your therapy dollar!

    We accept cash/check as well as most major credit/debit cards through the website. Counseling Advantages currently accepts Blue Cross Blue Shield of SC; Aetna, as well as Optum (United Health) insurances.

    One of my underlying beliefs is that… “the problem is not the problem — it is actually a symptom of what really is the problem.” I will work with you to enhance your strengths and abilities so as to address the symptoms that are adversely affecting your life

    Most issues that bring people into therapy stem from grief and loss, whether through traumatic circumstances or otherwise. I specialize in working with folks who are coping with life in ways that are NOT healthy for them, and work on assisting them in learning new ways of improving the quality of their lives.

    Another way to think of this is… “harmful behaviors are not the problem –it’s really why you are driven to engage in these troublesome behaviors that is the real problem.” The work that needs to be done centers around finding effective alternatives to help deal with the distressing circumstances you are facing. We will work on identifying your strengths and aim at maximizing those strengths for positive change.

    Inspirational Quotes

    “Perfectionism is a self destructive and addictive belief system that fuels this primary thought: If I look perfect, and do everything perfectly, I can avoid or minimise the painful feelings of shame, judgment, and blame.”

    Brené Brown

    “Somehow we’ve come to equate success with not needing anyone. Many of us are willing to extend a helping hand, but we’re very reluctant to reach out for help when we need it ourselves. It’s as if we’ve divided the world into “those who offer help” and “those who need help.” The truth is that we are both.”

    Brené Brown

    “Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it’s having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome.”
