About me

Hello, my name is Frankie McKelvin. I am licensed as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) from SC Board for Labor Licensing Regulations (SCLLR), License #7124. I am a member of the American Counseling Association (ACA). My clients vary from different cultural and diverse backgrounds. The clients with whom I work are psychologically and emotionally healthy and are seeking counseling for challenges arising from difficult life events. Some clients are facing more difficulties than others. However, I do not take on clients whom I cannot help using the techniques and knowledge I have available to me, or in areas that I am not trained in. I work with all individuals in life stages from adolescence through late senior years, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability. Also, I do consider my specialty to be working with family and couples, LGBTQ populations, and their individual and family issues.

In order for a client to be successful, the counseling experience includes active involvement in the process, as well as my own. Collaboratively, we will work to resolve your concerns and, hopefully, to improve the quality of your emotional life. You will be asked to apply yourself during and between sessions on a weekly basis. There may be homework assignments, including journaling, thinking about certain topics related to your situation, or completing other appropriate projects. All of these tasks are geared towards helping you to achieve the goals that we have identified for you in counseling.

I take an educational approach to helping clients with their concerns and my counseling is based on these philosophies: Adlerian Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy.

I enjoy speaking with Frankie, she listens and gives me questions based on how I'm feeling and has me think about it. All is great so far.

Frankie is amazing! She is easy to talk to & provides good reflections activities / homework to process outside of session. Highly recommend!

Frankie is the best - hands down! She listens [before] she gives advice...a great quality when it comes to therapy.

She's kind and nurturing, but will definitely allow you to see things from a different perspective, which is another great quality in therapy.

Ms. McKelvin has been my therapist for over a year now and she’s been able to work with me through many transitions in my life. I can say since working with her, I’ve grown more confident and have a growing sense of hope for my life and future.
