About Me

A wise person once said "You are always one decision away from a totally different life". I believe you are here browsing with belief that there is a better way: it is. You have just made a life changing decision to invest in yourself and your overall sense of well-being. You are courageous. I congratulate you on making the first step towards your best and most fulfilled life.

Welcome, my name is Lauren Pointer and I am a South Carolina based Licensed Clinical Social Worker/Therapist. My years of experience with multiple diverse populations have allowed me to see the power of durable change for anyone who is simply willing and committed. My background includes, but is not limited to end of life/terminal illness, grief/bereavement, family relationships, Infant and maternal health, at- risk youth, and Life adjustment matters. I enjoy meeting individuals, groups and families wherever they are on their journey and joining them with a compassionate and transparent approach to reach their goals. My therapeutic style includes client-centered, strengths based and humanistic approaches. I am skilled in a variety of therapy models including CBT, DBT, Motivational interviewing and Mindfulness. I am also Triple-P(Positive Parenting Program) certified.

I am dedicated to providing the best experience possible to each person I serve through counseling. I do assign homework outside of sessions as I believe this is a key means to identifying areas of strength and opportunities for growth. Enough about me, let's get started on your path to a healthy new beginning. I am excited to see how you flourish!

I've had one session with Lauren and several chats through the BH app, and I can already tell that she spent time and effort to understand what I was feeling and the root of those issues, and how she could help. I've found her to be helpful and insightful so far, and I'd highly recommend her to anyone who asked.
