Lisa Larkins has spent several years working in the addiction field focusing on the relationship between mental health issues and substance use disorders. She is trained in Seeking Safety, a cognitive-behavioral therapy treating PTSD, EMDR, and utilizes Dialectic Behavior Therapy, a type of psychotherapy that combines behavioral science with concepts like acceptance and mindfulness in her practice.

Lisa's areas of interest include depression, anxiety, bi-polar, PTSD, substance use, couples and relationships and women's specific issues such as reproductive and fertility issues.

Lisa’s approach to counseling is one that is both collaborative and strengths-based, allowing each individual to simultaneously develop trust and self-efficacy as a result of the therapeutic relationship. 

She is known for her natural ability to make one feel at ease; allowing the space to explore issues that are creating distress in one’s life at a pace that feels comfortable while still challenging and encouraging growth.

an innovative approach to therapy


Lisa is passionate about salt (the ocean, sweat, tears, and yes, all over her food), her dogs (a little rescue, Brooklyn and a giant Mastiff, Bozeman), and helping others to live their fullest life.  She grew up in Maryland, however she has called South Carolina home since 1998 and wouldn’t have it any other way.  She currently resides in Mt. Pleasant and can usually be found near or on the water.
