Talk Therapy in Greenville, SC – Counselors and Therapists in Greenville, SC

What’s your view of mental health counseling? Does your idea of therapy involve the image of someone on a couch with a counselor asking, “…and how does that make you feel?” Or maybe you’ve hear that counseling is for the weak and mentally ill. If you started meeting with a counselor, what would you talk about – and what if it doesn’t work? What if your problems don’t go away? What if they get worse?

You may think that talking with a friend is just as good – even better, actually, because it’s more convenient, it’s free, and you already have a relationship with that person. But here are some things to consider:

  • Your friend may be available, but that doesn’t necessarily make it convenient for him or her
  • Yes, it may be free, but talk therapy is more than just a conversation between two people
  • An established friendship may actually hinder you from the healing and growth you really need

Talk therapy has many benefits. The conversations between you and a licensed counselor are different from those you’ll have with a trusted friend. The value of speaking with talk therapist is not greater than speaking with a friend – it’s just different. And that’s because the purpose is different.

How Can Talk Therapy Help?

Talk therapy is helpful for many types of mental health issues, including the following:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress management
  • Panic disorders
  • Relationship issues
  • Marriage counseling
  • Divorce recovery
  • Grief and loss
  • Life coaching
  • Peak performance
  • … and much more!

Your therapist will help you explore thoughts and behaviors that are in conflict with each other. You’ll gain insight regarding negative or false beliefs that steal your happiness and prevent you from reaching your potential. You’ll spend time discussing your past and how it affects you today. Talk therapy may reveal patterns that keep you from engaging in meaningful relationships. You may even discover your authentic self. You might be able to do this with a friend; but if you’re like most people, it’s not likely. Your friends are probably not therapists, so let them be your friends and save the hard topics for talk therapy.

The only reason why my Family stopped going to see Ms. Dowdell is because I had to change jobs and at the time...Read more

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 Gilliam

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.
