A Note From Sarah

Whether it’s a life transition causing some added stress and emotional instability to our daily routines, or a significant and traumatic event that leaves us reeling in pieces, we all experience many kinds of hardships in our lifetime. You deserve to have someone to walk with you and navigate through those hardships, to the other side. Making it to that first counseling session for help can already be hard enough amidst life’s challenges, so my goal is to create an atmosphere where a person can feel comfortable in their own skin, learn who their ‘authentic self’ is beneath all those layers of life, and walk away more confident and empowered.

It is incredibly important to me as a person, Christian, and therapist, that I live out an authentic life that is worthy of earning a person’s trust and influencing productive change. By being non-judgmental, quick to listen, slow to speak, and always seeking new knowledge, I believe that my clients and I can work together to build a safe and transformational relationship, that will lead to personal breakthrough, peace, and self-understanding.

My style of counseling tends to be very practical, experiential, and individualized for each person and their needs. While I am trained and well versed in several models of therapy, I believe that boxing a person into one style only limits their potential for healing and change. I am proud to say that I love learning about new coping skills and therapeutic models so that I can provide excellent care to each person who is entrusting their hearts and minds with me-no matter the circumstance. I enjoy helping individuals work through anxiety, depression, trauma, life transitions, military life, adolescents/college years/young adults, personality disorders, identity work, conflict resolution, as well as family and relational challenges. I am also passionate about working with couples to help them build and maintain a happy and healthy relationship!

I received my Master’s Degree in Clinical Counseling Psychology from Francis Marion University in 2012, and have been working within the mental health field for over 10 years. God made it clear throughout many different stages of my young life, that listening to and helping others was my calling. I am blessed to say that the famous quote by Confucious, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life” perfectly describes my life as a counselor.

In my personal time, I live an adventurous and happy life with my husband, of 10 years. We enjoy volunteering within our Army Soldier and family groups, traveling to new places, staying physically active and fit, and enjoying all things food.

Counselor Competency

MyCounselor has as its aim to be the gold standard in faith-based mental health. Our counselors are required to have undergraduate studies in theology, practical ministry, or psychology and have completed a graduate (master’s) degree in mental health (professional counseling, clinical social work, marriage & family therapy, etc.).

  • We only hire around 2% of applicants
  • Require at least a Master’s Degree in Mental Health
  • 2-Year Post-Graduate Residency in Neuroscience Informed Christian Counseling® (NICC)
  • 400+ hours of Continuing Education each year

After submitting an application package that includes transcripts, references, and video responses to a structured interview, qualified candidates are invited into a multi-stage interview process. During the process candidates will meet with clinical supervisors, perform a mock therapy session, and participate in a training with the MyCounselor clinical team. If advanced from the final interview with the Director of Clinical Services, candidates are offered a position on the clinical team and matriculated into the MyCounselor residency.

During residency counselors complete multiple rotations of clinical training and experience with specific populations, including individuals, couples, families, and teens. Specifically, residents are trained in the MyCounselor proprietary model of care: Neuroscience Informed Christian Counseling® (NICC) as applied in practice with various presenting issues.
