Judy Jankowski, MS, LPC, CAC

Judy has been a counselor since 2013, but has been in the world of people development, coaching, and life study for much, much, longer. She has been married to her first and only husband for over 30 years. She is a mother, a step-mother, and a grandmother. Like most people, she was not raised in a perfect home and spent years learning to make healthy life choices. She stumbled into the business world quite by accident and found success in management and consulting.

Still, her natural gifts have always been in working with people. Whether it is encouraging a co-worker, comforting a child, or presenting solutions to a group of executives, she has a passion for helping people explore possibilities. She finally decided to pursue this passion in the field of counseling. She received a Master of Science degree in Professional Counseling, is licensed in the State of South Carolina as a Professional Counselor and is a Certified Addictions Counselor.

Elizabeth Perry, MA, LPCI

Elizabeth knows what it’s like to struggle with acceptance and finding your place in the world. She worked in a variety of areas and backgrounds before finding her calling in psychology and counseling.  She completed her education, and then gained experience in several areas of the field, including working with survivors of domestic violence and those with substance use disorders. She discovered that she felt most called to help people by assisting them in learning how to enhance their lives by: improving their ability to face stressors and problems; by working on their personal and/or professional relationships, by developing healthy habits; and by gaining confidence in their ability to make decisions. Elizabeth feels that she has the unique perspective of someone who has been there, as she has had to work through some of these issues herself. She now lives in the Spartanburg area with her husband, family, and two dogs. Please contact her for a free phone consultation and start the process of feeling better today.
