Jessica McCraw, LMFT

Philosophy of Care

Jessica McCraw is a South Carolina native. She is a seasoned therapist, with extensive experience helping individuals, couples, and families. Jessica earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at Coastal Carolina University and Master of Arts in Counseling with an Emphasis on Marriage & Family Therapy at Webster University.

"I strongly believe in the therapy process and one's ability to overcome the obstacles life brings that are often unexpected. I have a passion for helping people and have been blessed to be able to implement it into my career as a Marriage and Family Therapist. I approach therapy by meeting clients where they are, helping them identify where they want to be, and working together to set and attain their goals. Together, we will build on your strengths and learn skills to improve relationships, find balance, manage stress, improve quality of life, and (most importantly) find joy and peace. I welcome and look forward to working with all new clients, fostering positive change."

Jessica's clinical experience includes private practice, community outreach, and community health. She has worked with diverse populations, providing individual, couples, marriage, and family therapy. She partners with clients who have severe mental illness, helping them learn how to cope and manage mood disorders, anxiety, stress, marital and relational problems, and self-esteem issues.

Robin Finley, LMFT

Philosophy of Care

I continue to feel privileged when individuals, couples, and families allow me to assist them in meeting their personal goals. After recognizing the need for additional support, many feel vulnerable and even overwhelmed in taking that first step. From our first session, I thrive to assure that each client feels comfortable and safe within a confidential setting to openly explore their experiences and emotions. I am committed to serving each client with compassion and empathy. I am a strength-based clinician who believes in working collaboratively with you to identify your goals and achieve your desired success.

I recognize that there is no one method or model of therapy that fits everyone; thus I utilize an eclectic approach to therapy based on my clients’ needs. I often apply techniques from Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Structural Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing counseling method. Additionally, with children I utilize both directive and non-directive Play Therapy techniques.

In 2004, I received my Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from The University of South Carolina-Upstate. I obtained my Educational Specialist Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Converse College in 2007. Throughout the years, I have had the opportunity to practice in a variety of settings consisting of outpatient and residential settings as well as non-profit organizations and private practice.

Krista W. Martin, LISW-CP

Philosophy of Care

Are you looking to live your best, most authentic life?  Are you seeking a version of you that understands your values and strives to live them out daily?  Are you looking for a safe space to explore what you value, work through past experiences, or develop coping skills to become that person you hope to be?

I work with individuals, couples, and families through a multitude of therapeutic perspectives including Animal Assisted Therapy to help define what your personal “best life” looks like and develop a plan to get there.  I hold space for those working through life transitions and can help with stress, anxiety, depression, interpersonal relationships, grief, and more.  I have experience across all life stages with children as young as three through older adults.

I have over fifteen years of experience in mental health, health and wellness, and leadership including case management, individual and group therapy, community based mental health, school-based mental health, macro social work and management of large community systems, and leadership.  I have a bachelor’s degree from East Texas Baptist University with a dual major in Religion and Behavioral Sciences as well as a Master’s of Science in Social Work from The University of Texas at Arlington.  I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LISW-CP). I am presently enrolled in the Postgraduate Veterinary Social Work Certificate Program at the University of Tennessee Knoxville.

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.

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.
