Dr. Lori has been practicing for over 20 years. She graduated from Boston College and has a Psy.D. in counseling psychology. Life sometimes hands us situations that are just too difficult to deal with on our own. The good news is that you don't have to! Together we can discuss the issues that you are struggling with to find more effective strategies to manage these difficulties.
I specialize in work with adolescents and adults and treat a variety of issues such as depression, anxiety and anger problems. In addition, I work to help develop social and communication skills, school problems, anger management and family issues.
Sometimes it just takes an outside perspective to help you gain a better understanding of what is going on in your life. I'm happy to help you work through these difficulties.
Hello, my name is Courtney Quinn and I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate for the state of South Carolina. Growing up I always had a passion for mental health and knew I wanted to serve others by walking them through their darkest times. I pursued my Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Campbell University in order to provide the foundation necessary to understand brain and behavior. Afterwards I continued on to receive my Master's in Professional Counseling from Liberty University where I gained experience counseling in both a hospital and private setting. Currently, I am finishing up my PhD in developmental psychology to garner more knowledge in working with youth and teaching the next generation of mental health professionals.
As a therapist I believe in Solution-Focused approaches that empowers the client to make lasting changes in their lives. Utilizing a Person-Centered approach allows for me to customize therapy to match each individual's goals within a compassionate and judgement free zone. I also incorporate Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy within some sessions to combat anxious and depressive thoughts. I have experience working with all different ages and specialize in: anxiety, depression, life transitions, anger management, health concerns, relationship difficulties and traumatic experiences. I also have a special interest in maternal mental health and extensive knowledge in Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. Additionally, I have personal experience and interest within military communities as a spouse of an Active Duty service member.
When I'm off the clock I enjoy spending time with my young children outdoors and going to various parks. I love to read and learn new skills that includes cooking, baking, and crafting. We enjoy soaking up all the Lowcountry sun and historic sights!
As a Christian, I can provide spiritual components to your counseling sessions as you see fit. I look forward to working with you!
My name is Dr. Valerie Quarles. I am a licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and hold licensures in three states; Connecticut, Georgia and South Carolina. I received my bachelor’s degree in Human Services from Springfield College in Springfield, Massachusetts and Master’s degree in Social Work (MSW), with a Clinical Specialization in Children/Families, from Fordham University in Manhattan, New York. In 2012, I received my Doctorate of Philosophy in Human Services with Specialization Social and Community Services from Capella University in Minneapolis, MN.
I am a veteran in working with individuals, children and families and have over thirty years of experience to offer you. Some of my experiences include working with populations such as: children/youth/families, elderly, juveniles, and adults with issues of substance abuse, HIV/AIDS, mental health and domestic violence prevention and intervention. I have also worked with complex trauma, grief/loss, depression, family issues involved in divorce, custody, and family violence situations. Some of my skills involve the use of the DSM-V, crisis intervention, co-parenting issues, mediations, and empowerment skills to assist individuals in becoming self-sufficient.
It is my aim to empower individuals to use their strengths and skills in attaining and maintaining their goals, personal growth, and self-sufficiency. I contend that it is important to positively role model and to teach others the value of caring for themselves and others. I am very eclectic in my therapy approach in which I combine Cognitive Behavioral theory, Psychodynamic, Problem Solving, Task-Centered, Solution Focus, Narrative, and Crisis. I will personalize our discussion to create a customized treatment plan to assist you in your success.
Lastly, I live by four recipes for a “Happy Life” that are simply….First, “To thy own self be true”…..Secondly, “Be impeccable with your words”. Thirdly, “Don’t take anything personally”. Fourth, “Always, do your best, because the best is yet to come”. Therefore, with each moment, we come closer to reaching our goals. I look forward to working with you!
