About me

I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker (LISW-CP) in South Carolina with 30 years of experience in the field of Social Work with 7 years experience as a therapist. I have worked with a wide range of clientele from young children to older adults with a wide range of concerns including geriatric and aging issues, emotional/physical traumas, depression, stress and anxiety, and family discord. I also have some experience in working with military Veterans and their families.

My counseling style is strengths-based, open, warm, and client centered. I believe in walking side-by-side with my clients vs leading them; you know how you learn and grow best and I'm here to help provide guidance towards your goals. Everyone deserves to be treated with fairness, equity, compassion, and care. My therapeutic approach combines cognitive-behavioral, problem-solving, solution based and motivation enhancement. We will work together to create a treatment plan that works for you as an individual.

I have been where you are and in need of a compassionate, knowledgeable and empathetic counselor who will work with you to establish a trusting relationship and empower you to be the best version of you. If you are ready to take the first step towards change, I am here to support and encourage you on your journey.

I look forward to working with you soon!

Thank you

Trish has helped me gain confidence in my discussions and supported me in navigating the issues I needed reassurance in. She has given me tools that I have unconsciously and consciously been using to better my life. She also supported me by reassuring me that boundaries in my case are ok and needed to make me in charge of those boundaries. I’m grateful to her for allowing me to not feel guilty anymore to limit situations from affecting me as much and weighing my spirit down.

I have been with Trish for a little under a year and our meetings are something I look forward to doing. Trish listens to me and encouraged me to do what I believe is best.

Trish is a lovely person and a great listener. It is easy to open up to her right away and I know that she truly empathizes with me. She has been extremely helpful--offering worksheets that might aid me on a weekly basis--and I look forward to our sessions each weekend. I highly recommend her!

Trish has been a great support. Very empathic and I felt naturally opening up from the first session. Can only recommend *****

I feel like I have someone in my corner helping me deal with my problems when I don’t want to reach out to friends or family and it makes me feel like I’m not alone against it all by myself.

Work with me!
