The best way to describe my approach to counseling is holistic. I believe that mind, body, and spirit are interconnected with all pieces working together in harmony. So, although my primary job is helping clients with their mental health, assessing and encouraging physical and spiritual health is also important to the healing process. I tend to lean towards a person-centered approach where the client is responsible for their growth. I am a guide to help you on your journey, like a lamp illuminating the path. I typically incorporate exercises and techniques from empirically researched therapies such as CBT, DBT, CPT, ACT, Art Therapy, and more. I also integrate Christian beliefs and practices in counseling when requested.
I'm Lindsay M. Amburn, a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate in South Carolina. I graduated from Liberty University with a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in May 2022. Helping others is one of the passions and purposes of my life. I enjoy reading, painting, kayaking, hiking, watching the latest shows and true crime docs, being social, and a good nap.
Counseling for Women
As a woman, I know the unique struggles we face. I love empowering and encouraging other women to live their best life while working on healing the wounds of the past. I have counseled women on issues of loss, grief, stress, boundaries, anxiety, depression, infertility, abandonment, relationships, sexual abuse and trauma, work/career, health struggles, and life changes.
Counseling for Young Adults
Young Adulthood is hard! It is the time of transition from being a dependent to being an adult. There are many choices and decisions to make for the future. I enjoy helping young adults with these decisions and their future goals, while tackling with mental health issues like anxiety, depression, stress, self-esteem, and social aspects.
Counseling for Adolescents
I work with Adolescents to be the safe adult I wish I had when I was a teen. My goal is to provide guidance and counseling for teens as they strive to form their identity and navigate this tumultuous stage of life. Many young people suffer from anxiety, depression, self-harm, suicidal ideation, bullying, eating disorders, ADD/ADHD, & behavioral issues. I am here to help the teen and the family with these issues.
As part of my approach for counseling and healing, I provide resources to further understand or work on oneself outside of the office. Below you can find more resources like book recommendations, helpful articles, worksheets, and workbooks in different mental health areas.
