Who I Am
My name is Brooke Williams. I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC #6587) and have been in the mental health/social services field since 2011. I graduated with a Masters in Professional Counseling in 2013, and have served the greater Charleston area since that time.
Usually, you come to this page because you want to know if you should work with me. So, let’s cut to the chase.
Here’s what you should know about counseling with me:
I don’t believe that therapy is all fluff and feelings. Yes, ok, there is a time and place for fluff and feelings. But, like you, I want to see progress and solutions, not sit and dwell on all the mistakes and regrets from before.
Of course, there is a benefit to learning and recognizing patterns, but moving forward from that understanding to initiate transformation, change, and growth? That’s the stuff that I get excited about.
Because counseling with me is solution-focused (I recently wrote all about this in detail, you can find out about solution focused brief therapy right here), I generally don’t have clients that stick around for years. If you’re motivated to see progress, it doesn’t have to take forever! Clients average about 8-10 weeks with me. Full transparency, it depends on what your goals are, how ready you are to try something different, and some other factors. But my goal for you is for you to see results, not stay stuck where you are.
This is why I do this work:
The truth is that, as cheesy as it sounds, people are important to me. I get as much out of working with people to improve their lives as they do. I believe that people can change. I have seen it happen over and over again through the power of therapeutic relationships and support.
You don’t have to continue to feel stuck and unfulfilled. You are resilient, powerful, and full of potential that you haven't even seen yet. It is there in each of us, and I am so excited for the opportunity to help you find it.
