I specialize in working with children and teens struggling in the school, home, and social settings or experiencing depression and/or anxiety.
You know how it is possible to get lost when you are walking in a dense forest and don’t have a compass or a map to use as a guide? Well, I help individuals, couples, and families who are feeling lost and confused by functioning as a guide for them. Together, we develop reference points such as how you can build skills, adapt and adjust to stressors, set house rules, talk to each other, and resolve conflicts.

Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is a short-term, evidence-based treatment for kids ages 2.5 to 7 years old who exhibit behaviors such as anger, hyperactivity, trouble focusing, frequent tantrums, aggression, and anxiety. Caregivers learn and implement play therapy techniques that help kids regulate their emotions, increase focus, and strengthen the parent- child relationship. Caregivers learn concrete strategies to promote consistency, predictability, and motivate their child to follow directions. PCIT with Toddlers is an adaptation of PCIT for kids ages 12-24 months with similar behavior concerns.

I have experience working with children of various ages and adults, however I specialize in working with elementary aged kids.
At Travelers Rest Counseling Associates, we believe that people flourish when they authentically contribute to their communities. But for many, this feels impossible because of depression, anxiety, trauma, marital strife, lack of motivation, or any number of other issues. We can help by listening, treating you with dignity, withholding judgment, and working with you to find ways to live a fulfilling life.

As a young girl, I wanted to be a teacher. I got my teaching certificate and then a degree in counseling and guidance. Increasingly, the field of psychology captured my attention. My training focused on children and families which led to working with couples. In my work with children , I developed expertise in the areas of trauma and pediatric illnesses and led to trauma with adults and to work in end-of-life issues. The field of psychology has changed so much! 40 years ago people attended therapy for years. Now people can utilize the tools and strategies the therapy can provide in fewer than five sessions.

Hi friends! Welcome to Trinity Counseling! If you've landed here, I just want you to know how brave and strong you are for beginning the process of taking that first step for self-care, or for seeking care for a close friend or family member. I am currently in a temporary closing for my office, as I am in the transition process of developing a ministry for women and teens through writing and speaking. Throughout the pandemic, I received such an influx of calls and emails, the need was impossible to meet. I needed to pursue meeting people's needs in a much bigger way - and I am hoping to do so once my ministry comes into fruition.

What type of Bluffton mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Bluffton?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
