Hello and thank you for stopping by! My name is Sandy Boone and I am excited about the opportunity to work with you.
After eighteen years in the medical field, I began the journey to become a clinical mental health counselor. I received a Master of Arts degree from Wake Forest University in 2015. I am a Nationally Certified Counselor, a Certified Community Mental Health Counselor, a Board Certified Telmental Health Provider, a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, and a Certified Mental Health Integrative Health Practitioner. I am licensed in the state of South Carolina (License number 6895), Georgia (License number LPC012207), and I am a registered Florida Telehealth Provider (Registration number 833). I am the owner of Foothold Counseling, LLC.
Prior to beginning my private practice, I completed my practicum and both internships at Lexington County Community Mental Health Center in Lexington, South Carolina. I worked with clients with issues such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, schizoaffective disorder, schizotypal disorder, anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and numerous personality disorders.
I currently work with individuals on a wide range of personal, developmental, and mental health concerns. I enjoy working with individuals with adoption-related issues, issues related to divorce, trauma, and issues related to spirituality. My goal is for my clients to feel heard and I seek to create a therapeutic environment where trust, autonomy, and personal strengths are core to the therapeutic relationship. Although I utilize therapies that are the best fit for my clients, brainspotting, cognitive behavioral therapy, internal family systems, and dialectical behavioral therapy are most influential in my work. I am also a practitioner instructor at Wake Forest University.
I live with my husband in Lexington, South Carolina. We have two adult children. My hobbies include reading, saltwater reefing, learning new things, kayaking, and spoiling my yellow Labrador, Remington.
