Feeling lost? Angry? Maybe even a little broken? That's okay. In therapy, there are no masks, no need to hide your true feelings. You can cuss, cry, or scream if you want. It's your space to be unapologetically you, without expectations or judgments. Maybe you've been through therapy before, and while it helped to have someone listen & give you coping skills, it was like slapping a Band-Aid on a wound. You know logically what you should do, but your emotions keep dragging you down different paths. Those thoughts of not being good enough, needing to please everyone, or striving for perfection, They're suffocating, aren't they?

I am a LPC in South Carolina. I enjoy working with clients as they confront avoidance and start living the lives they desire. The best evidence we have shows the importance of a good therapeutic relationship in overall therapy outcomes. I love connecting with my clients and building a great relationship with them. To be sure, life has many challenges and many of us respond to those challenges in ways that are not consistent with our values. Many times, these responses cause life to not be as enjoyable as we would like. Wherever our challenges come from, these challenges do not need to prevent us from living the life we desire.

Acknowledging life struggles and making the decision to improve your mental health and wellbeing is often the hardest first step. Every person has their own individual reason for taking that first step. Some are struggling with major life transitions, some are finding they no longer feel excited about life and lack motivation to engage in activities that make them feel good. Others feel anxious doing everyday activities and some find that their past experiences hold them back from living their best life. Whatever your reason is for taking that first step, I am so glad you did!

Anxiety is a normal part of life but too much anxiety can make us choose unhelpful coping mechanisms that prevent us from being able to function in other areas of our life. We often feel that if anxiety would just go away, we'd feel better about our day to day lives but where does that leave us when another anxiety provoking situation or event happens? Getting control of anxiety is difficult work but it can alleviate so many of the hurdles we experience in life. As a certified hypnotherapist and licensed professional counselor, we can work together to help you use healthier coping mechanisms to be the person you want to be.

FAQs - About Therapy and Counseling

How can I find a therapist in Greer?

Search for nearby therapists or counselors by inputting your city, town, or suburb; or zip code; or a provider’s name into the search bar. From there, you can filter providers by the issues they treat, cost, insurance, gender, and other factors to find providers who are well-suited to your needs. To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
