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, LPC

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.

Stephen Prince, MA, LMFTA

One thing that we can all count on is change. Even positive change, like getting married or getting that much sought-after job, can lead to lower than normal levels of satisfaction in life. Steven has found that with the right support, we can pass through any stage or difficulty in life. We can grow, and in time, even thrive!

Using his experience, training, and education, he loves to work with people who are going through changes and struggles or are looking for support that guides them through a difficult time. Having worked in vocational rehabilitation, he has helped individuals adjust to starting, finding, and losing jobs. As a mental health counselor, he has worked with families and individuals who struggle with the difficulty of managing depression, anxiety, personality disorders, trauma, grief, and developmental issues. As a substance use counselor, Steven has worked with and seen, firsthand, the damaging effects of a life of substance dependency. In all of these areas, he has been able to collaborate with individuals and families to find positive change and growth.

As a young, married man with children, Steven has worked to maintain the balance of healthy living despite personal difficulties he has had to overcome. Steven learned to work through the hardships and find peace in all situations. His desire is to work with everyone to help them find happiness, stability, and peace.
