Destiny King, M.Ed., LPC
Has life been weighing you down? Are there times when everything feels so overwhelming that you aren't sure what to do anymore? Come talk to me, and we can work together to become your best self.
The best and most beneficial therapeutic relationships are those where the client and the therapist are able to work as a team to reach whatever goal the client has in mind. You are the expert on yourself, and the things that you want in life. Let me help you to reach those goals.
I have been in the counseling field for 5 years now and have experience working in private practice, school settings, and organizational settings as well. I have experience working with children, teens, college students, and adults. I enjoy working with all races, genders, and sexual orientations. I have experience working with clients dealing with anxiety, depression, various mood and personality disorders, and marital issues as well. The area I would consider to be a specialty of mine is working with individuals of any age who are healing from physical or sexual trauma.
I feel that each person is different, and as such I like to use various therapeutic techniques tailored to the individual. I have extensive training in experiential techniques, CBT, client-based, holistic, and trauma focussed techniques as well. I also have received training in Gottman couples therapy, as well as Prepare/Enrich to work with married couples to strengthen their relationships, or couples who are looking for pre-marital counseling.
For those interested in my credentials, I graduated with my Bachelors of Science in Psychology from Georgia Southern in 2013 and went on to receive my Masters of Science in Clinical/Counseling Psychology from Valdosta State University in 2017. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor for the state of Georgia and plan to become a Certified Professional Counselor Supervisor as well. I moved to Statesboro with my husband in 2017 and have fallen in love with the community here. Please feel free to reach out through email or over the phone to schedule an appointment with me! I cannot wait to work with you to become the best version of yourself.
