As we build our relationship, I am sharing a bit about my education, experience, and approach to counseling, so that you can decide if we might be a good fit.
I earned my EdS (above a masters) in Counselor Education with a focus in Marriage, Couples and Family Counseling from the University of SC, and I am licensed (#7756) as an LPC-a in the State of South Carolina. I earned a BA in Philosophy from Pomona College in Claremont, CA (1999, Phi Beta Kappa).
In addition to extensive coursework, my program required hands-on experience in counseling. I worked with children at Epworth Children's Home, and I interned with diverse students (ages 5-18) and their families at Family Intervention Services at Richland School District Two. Since graduation I have worked in private practice, with couples, individuals, teens, parents and families.
Beyond graduate training, I am certified in Stepping Stones Triple P Level 3, a positive parenting program for families raising children with disabilities, and the Gottman Method of Couples Counseling (Level 1).
On the path to becoming a counselor, I worked with families raising children with disabilities at Family Connection of SC. I have experience teaching advocacy skills and preparing for IEP and 504 meetings.
