Serving the Midlands of South Carolina
Hello and thank you for stopping by! My name is Sandy Boone and I am excited for 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 Clinical Trauma Professional, and and I am licensed in the state of South Carolina (License number 6895). 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, reality therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, 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, son, and daughter in Lexington, South Carolina. We have three Labrador Retriever and a hedgehog. My hobbies include exercising, reading, photography, and camping.
