Nancy Lloyd

Nancy Lloyd is a Licensed Professional Counselor who specializes in relationship issues, grief and loss, life transitions, depression, eating disorders, trauma, recovery from substance abuse, anxiety, gender issues, and symptom management for chronic problems. She has gained experience both in private practice and community mental health services after graduating from The Citadel Graduate College in 2010. Nancy primarily works with adults but has notable experience with adolescents and children when providing interventions for families. She also has a decade of experience as an Adjunct Psychology Instructor and has a passion for providing psychoeducational information as an important supplement to understanding ourselves and our brains.

Nancy is a general practitioner with the ability to provide evidence-based interventions (CBT, TFCBT, DBT, MI, REBT, ACT, or Crisis Intervention for instance) for a very wide scope of acute and chronic conditions. She’s able to accommodate clients who prefer more supportive services to simply process life situations or reach goals. Interested in learning skills to be more aware of your dreams? She’s had experience with that, too. She prioritizes a humanistic approach as a compassionate and non-judgmental foundation to support the alliance between her and her clients and encourage the best possible therapeutic outcomes.

When someone feels genuinely understood, crisis will dissipate some and he or she can feel supported to make decisions or changes in a safe way… maybe even with a little humor and wit. Engagement in therapy is very sacred work that merits a soulful reverence for each client who decides to seek help. So, if you want a clinically-trained therapist who can also speak in terms of spiritual and personal growth from many philosophical perspectives effectively, give Nancy a try.

Timothy Queen
Self Pay Rate: $99

Timothy Queen, LISW

Philosophy of Care

Timothy Queen is a Licensed Independent Social Worker (LISW) with 45 years of experience and education in the field of psychotherapy. While Timothy has specialties, he also provides general assistance in the areas of general mental health needs. While careful scrutiny of client problems and complications is necessary, brevity remains a concern and the need for it cannot be ignored. Timothy is concerned not to get distracted and to stay focused on the areas of most concern to the client system. His specific area of specialty is post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Behind the specialty is groundbreaking research and practice in this wide-ranging field. Timothy will assist the client system in identifying areas of greatest impact and specific skills needed to manage specific problems related to the presenting traumatic episode(s).

Timothy completed his Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) at the University of South Carolina. His availability to his client(s) is at the core of his being as a therapist. While Thriveworks has protocols and procedures for contacting him, and often direct contact is not permitted, Timothy will not hesitate to see clients "off hours" and upon emergency.

Timothy believes that there is no ideal client just as there is no ideal therapist. However, if there were such a client, she would be motivated to change, which is considered the number one ingredient to change. Without it, all efforts on the part of the therapist will be resisted or at least require much more time, effort, and money. She would want to learn new behavior to assist in making the changes she seeks. She would have goals commensurate with the change she desires. She would struggle but be open to suggestions, guidance, and gentle educational advice from the therapist. She would be willing to attend sessions as needed, including at least one follow-up and one follow-along session, thus not prematurely disrupting the change process. Of course, if the client were a larger system than one person (i.e., couple or family) the complications for each of the above would prove more complex.
