About me

Hello! My name is Darlinda and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC-S), Registered Play Therapist (RPT-S), and National Certified Counselor (NCC) licensed in South Carolina and North Carolina with over 8 years of counseling experience. I also provide supervision for LPCI and have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, foster care/adoption, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, ADHD and ODD. I also help people who have experienced physical, sexual or emotional abuse and trauma.

My counseling style is warm, interactive, and sometimes playful when needed. I believe in treating everyone as I would like to be treated, with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I believe in the inherent worth and value of others and that nutritional deficiencies underlie many of the lingering issues. My approach combines person-centered, cognitive-behavioral, motivational, and dialectic behavior counseling. If you would like to schedule a time to talk, go to my schedule and select a day and time that is convenient for you. In addition, you can always let me know if there are no convenient times for you.

Congratulations on taking the first step to a more fulfilling and happier life. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support you.

I look forward to working with you! Darlinda

Darlinda always makes me feel heard and validated. She asks thoughtful questions that help me sift through my thoughts and feelings in a new way. She conveys curiosity combined with warmth and empathy and offers positive resources.

I originally connected with Darlinda about a specific situation I was facing. She listened well and gave excellent feedback on that situation. Although that situation isn't resolved, it is postponed, but I still value the feedback I get from Darlinda on all the other things we now talk about. She's a great voice of compassion and reasonableness in a world where the noise can be loud.

Ms. Banda is insightful, patient, and incredibly empathetic. Whenever I speak with her, I leave feeling so much more assured. She has helped me collaboratively make changes in my life and thought patterns, and I'm immensely grateful for her.
