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 extensive experience in treating trauma & anxiety; relationship conflicts; play therapy ; ADHD; and parenting issues, I am comfortable with one person or a whole family in my office if that's what it takes to facilitate growth, healing, and/or problem solving.
I have recently added an office in Bluffton, SC in order to provide availability to the Bluffton/Beaufort community. My primary office is in Shelter Cove in Hilton Head Island for the last 19 years. I specialize in children, adolescents, families, and couples. For all of my professional career I have focused on children and families, although my post masters' academic work has allowed me the opportunity to practice as a couples' therapist as well. My approach in my psychotherapy practice is individualized to my client's needs and includes shared goals between therapist and client.

I always employ humor and unconditional positive regard in my therapy, and -- depending on the individual's character and thought processes -- I use a number of therapeutic modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy, positive psychology, and talk, play and art therapies.
We all deserve to live a happy, productive life -- to have a little fun every now and then. While life can't always be fun, with the right coping mechanisms and cognitive tools, we can address even the toughest times with positivity and confidence. It is my goal to teach my clients how to live their most positive lives, no matter what the circumstance or issue: marriage and family problems, anxiety, depression, ADD and ADHD (children and adults), blended family matters, sexual issues, PTSD, and military-family dynamics.

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.

Are you intrigued about therapy and yoga and the benefits it offers to the mind, body, spirit? If you struggle with high anxiety and desire to connect more deeply with your emotional self then I encourage you to reach out. Do you want more than “talk therapy” and want to engage in therapy with a more holistic approach? I have learned to take notice of the forgotten needs of driven yet exhausted individuals. I have learned to listen to the needs and feelings of those who often lack words to communicate what is happening inside of themselves.

I believe people seek out counseling when they have realized their life has become unbalanced and they are asking for help to heal either their mind, body or spirit, or at times all three. Reaching out for assistance I always viewed as a strength and I am in this profession to be the hand you grab onto so we can walk this path together. My mindset is there are always stepping stones to get to the path we are destined to find whether it be anxiety, stress management, conflict resolution or relationship breakdown. I would provide a safe place for healing and guide you along with each stepping stone as we build a strong foundation.

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.

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.

Today may be one of the “Bad Days,” maybe even the worst yet. Lately, bad days are becoming more frequent. Racing thoughts, worry, anxiety, sadness, and lack of motivation seem to be taking over everything. You’re doing your best, but doing day to day tasks becomes a battle that is becoming harder to win. You’re always tired. Your brain never stops. Loved ones are concerned and maybe complain, which makes you feel worse. You shut down and either put on a show or avoid the people, tasks, and events that are important. The negative voice in your head is getting louder and louder and it says horrible and scary things to and about you.

My approach to therapy is to help you identify what you would like to change and the stressors you are currently facing. I have over 20 years experience working with adult, adolescent, and child clients and have developed methods which allow you to release unwanted feelings and find new perspectives and increased energy, often in just a few sessions. I have worked extensively with trauma victims, including PTSD. I also offer you the opportunity to do what I believe is the deepest therapy available, Inner Child Work, which addresses the root causes of most adult distress.

Play Therapy
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.
