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. (Searching for therapist? Call (864) 952-4048)

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

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.

dn't see it myself. She helped me with my grief after losing my father. She helped me overcome my addictions with drugs and alcohol. She taught me to be kind to myself and that everyday is not gonna be an amazing day and that's okay. She helped me accept that I don't have to know the outcomes to big life changes that it's best to go with the flow, wear life like a loose garment. Emily is such and amazing counselor and I am forever grateful for everything she helped me see. Emily cares tremendously and I know deep in my heart she is gonna continue being the sunshine in many more client lives. Emily has made a huge impact on my life and I don't think I will ever find a counselor as down to earth as she is. Chicago misses you already!!! :) :) :)

ion. I thought I was handling it well until one day had a massive panic attack. I did my research and reached out to her immediately. She met with me the next day and helped my put a plan into place for recovery. The first time I met her, I knew I could trust her and she tailored my therapy and sessions to what I needed at the time and at each stage of progress. There were times I digressed and she helped me get back on track and we celebrated my small wins and progress together. I would recommend her to any friend or family member. I know personally, taking the first step to get help is an important one. I can confidently say she was a great first step for me and I know she's fantastic at helping others too.
