Counseling for Students – Counselors and Therapists in Greenville, SC

Every year, nearly 60 million students take part in the back-to-school rush. As each summer draws to a close, there’s a mix of anticipation and excitement for many students, while other students could think of better ways to spend the next 180 school days. Regardless of desire, ability, or commitment to be at school, there’s a lot of pressure on students!

How is Your Student Handling the Pressure?

Students are exposed to more opportunities than ever before. They’re also exposed to more dangers. Beyond the drugs, alcohol, and relationships, students struggle with mental health issues, too. Family wealth and social class do little to spare students from facing serious emotional and mental health issues, some of which can become debilitation and last a lifetime. Students are pressured to excel academically. Athletes are expected to perform at the highest level on the field or court. The pressure is real and for some students, it’s unbearable.

Should My Child See a Therapist?

If you’re asking this question, you’re in the right place. Your child deserves to live a happy, meaningful, and fulfilled life. If something is preventing him or her from any of these things, don’t wait – get help now! Although you may not be able to pinpoint this issue (your student may not be able to either), a highly trained, licensed therapist can help you and your student gain a positive perspective and find healing.

Sometimes, students experience normal struggles. It’s part of their development – part of the process of moving from childhood to adulthood. Students can be moody, anxious, discouraged, and experience relationship issues – these things are common. However, if any of these issues become persistent, counseling for your student may help him or her learn from their experiences and develop healthy tools for dealing with difficult circumstances. Other considerations for student counseling include:

  • Excessive worry
  • Difficulty making friends
  • Anxiety in social settings
  • Comments such as, “I wish I wasn’t here,” or “no one would miss me”
  • Significant changes in sleep or appetite
  • Self-harm (cutting, pulling hair, picking skin)
  • Loss of confidence
  • Negative self-speak
  • Withdrawal from family and/or friends
  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Anger outbursts

my schedule would not allow us to continue services. She made sure my Family had a great transition to another Provider and that we had continuity of care. Now that my schedule has a little more flexibility, I am very thankful to be able to continue services with Ms. Dowdell who still remembers my Family’s history like we were just in her office yesterday (over 1 year ago)! She listens intently and never puts you down, and helps you understand your emotions and what issues and problems you may be going through in a way that you can understand but clearly. Personally, I deal with a lot of stress and being pulled in a lot of directions, and would when I felt as though my words did not make sense coming out of my mouth, she would know how to piece together what I was saying and not make me feel bad for being too vulnerable and made my therapy sessions a safe space to learn and grow from them. I am forever grateful for how she is helping my Family accept what we need to accept, change what we need to change, and heal from the root of our wounds; wounds I did not know were there. I highly recommend her.

Emily was the first therapist I had ever gone to after thinking for a long time it would be good for me. I was...Read more

stuck in a rut and repeating patterns and using coping skills that were no longer helpful to me. She helped me work through many of my personal issues, some which had been stewing since childhood. She always knew when to push and when to back off if a certain issue was too sensitive at that time. She is honest yet kind. I was sad to see her move out of Chicago but I will forever be grateful for the tools she helped me to develop for dealing with the sh**show that life can be sometimes. She helped me get back into alignment with who I really am as a person. I would highly recommend her for anyone who is struggling or even just looking for a little more balance in their lives.
