Norma Robinson, MS, LPC
I was born in Georgia but was raised in Ohio for the majority of my life. I graduated from Ohio State University with a Bachelor’s degree of Arts in Social and Behavioral Sciences in 2003. I eventually moved to South Carolina in 2012 and graduated with a Master’s degree of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2014. I worked for a previous counseling agency for 3 years as a Licensed Professional Counselor – Intern/Associate. The clientele that I became familiar with varied in age, sex and gender identity, cultural and religious background, as well as economic and educational background. I have also worked with individuals of the LGBT community. I have studied and worked in the management of grief, abuse, trauma, PTSD, bipolar disorder, depression and ADHD.
As a counselor, I tend to utilize positive feedback and communication with the clients. I serve as a guide to self-healing, empowerment and positive self-care. I work with the clients to gain awareness of emotional and mental barriers to their own positive changes and I aid them in understanding ways that they can overcome those barriers. My therapeutic orientations include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing, which largely focuses on the needs of the patient. I tend to encourage clients to make their own breakthroughs and changes by providing a positive and judgement-free environment, which I believe is essential to creativity and overall emotional and mental growth.
I understand that it takes a great deal of courage to admit that one is in need of help in order to manage any symptoms of mental and/or emotional distress. This is why I work very hard to create an empathic and respectful environment for healing and growth. I am looking forward to working with all of my future clients.
