Jim Overby, LPC
Hi, my name is Jim Overby. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in South Carolina. I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and made my way to Greenville, South Carolina, in 2019. Currently, I live in the beautiful upstate area with my wife and stepdaughter. My family and I enjoy walking in nature and exploring the area where we live. I enjoy working with clients as they confront avoidance and start living the lives they desire. The best evidence we have has shown the importance of a good therapeutic relationship in overall therapy outcomes. I love connecting with my clients and building a great relationship with them, so I hope we can build a great relationship when we meet.
To be sure, life has many challenges, and many of us respond to those challenges in ways that are not consistent with our values. Many times, these responses cause life not to be as enjoyable as we would like. Whether our challenges stem from trauma, anxiety, adjustment issues, depression, or some unknown causes, these challenges do not need to prevent us from living the life we desire. While I believe the therapeutic relationship is a great tool in healing, I also use evidence-based modalities in therapy. I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as a guide to help my clients confront these challenges. I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR is a trauma-focused therapy that allows processing without the need to go into gory details.
I have spent my career helping folks heal from a multitude of different challenges. It is always an honor to be with someone in their healing journey. I look forward to meeting with you and helping you move forward in the life you want to live.
