About Me

Hello and welcome to my page!

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in South Carolina with almost 20 years of experience in the counseling field. I have worked in a variety of clinical settings, providing individual, couples, group and family therapy. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, military lifestyle challenges (deployment/reintegration cycle), addictions and ADHD. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I do not believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach includes client-centered, cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavior, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused therapy. I also specialize in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), working with caregivers and their children (ages 2 -7) who are experiencing behavioral and/or emotional challenges. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.


I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Lisa Godwin. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

It is indescribable the amount of support Lisa has provided me with over the last months. Having so many horrible situations happen, knowing she's been there for me is irreplaceable! I don't know where I'd be today without her. Hoping in the future I can continue my sessions with her.
Thank you Lisa!!

Dr. Lisa Godwin is great at what she does. She's not only a patient listener but also very subtleand organic in bringing out the best possible way of tackling them discussing core principles and root causes. Her empathy and humor makes the sessions quite pleasant and I highly recommend her to anyone seeking help.
