Services

Services are aimed at awakening inner potential, strengthening relationships, and organizing the external world in ways that help our clients to overcome challenges and meet their own individual life goals.

Assessment 
Getting To Know You

A comprehensive and thorough assessment is vital to each client's success. An assessment involves gathering information, identifying areas of strength and weakness, outlining the goals of therapy, and creating a plan for achieving them.

Individual Therapy
One-On-One Treatment

Clients work with a trained therapist - in a safe, supportive and confidential setting - to explore beliefs, feelings, and/or behaviors, work through influential memories, gain a better understanding of self/others, set personal goals and work toward desired change to improve quality of life. 

Family Therapy
Focusing On The Home

Families work with a trained therapist to improve communication, resolve conflict, and increase feelings of connectedness.

Group Therapy
Listening To Everyone

This form of psychotherapy usually involves one therapist and 6-12 participants with related challenges. In this setting, participants improve not only from therapeutic interventions but also by observing and receiving feedback from other group members.

Coordination of services
Working Through The Systems

When desired and authorized by our clients, communicating with other healthcare providers, school professionals, and other community members is often an invaluable part of promoting holistic wellness.

Amanda joined Pathways as an associate therapist in 2022 after a move from her home state of
Florida to South Carolina. Her education includes both a BSW (2008) and an MSW (2009) from
the University of Central Florida.

Amanda has 14 years of broad experience working with diverse populations. She was able to gain valuable insights and experience working in a hospital supporting patients after they received a life-altering cancer diagnosis, who were in crisis, or were needing a life-saving transplant. This setting allowed Amanda the opportunity to also support the medical professionals who were often facing compassion fatigue, burnout, or personal crisis of their own.  Amanda gained additional skills working for a national hospice provider where she served as a coordinator for bereavement camps to help families process and work through traumatic loss and grief experiences.

Throughout her education and work experiences, Amanda has worked with clients to navigate through various life challenges including: adjustment to physical and emotional life changes, addictions, trauma, relationship challenges, employment burnout, chronic illnesses, end of life, and grief.  She has particular interest in helping women navigate through pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum as they transition to navigating the many joys and challenges of motherhood. 


Ms. Biggers’ fun-loving and nurturing energy helps client's feel safe and able to explore the often difficult places our lives have brought us.  Methods utilized in her treatment approach are unique to each client, but most often include: CBT, Solutions-Focused, Motivational Interviewing and incorporate mindfulness practices.


Amanda is married and has two young children who keep her laughing and learning. She enjoys exploring the Greenville area, and loves being so close to the mountains!

Amanda recognizes that everyone’s life has offered different experiences, privileges, and
struggles.  She believes that everyone deserves to have a safe place to heal, rest, and show
their most vulnerable self, free of judgement.

Adrienne joined Pathways in 2022.  She received her Bachelors in Psychology from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (2006) and a Masters of Social Work at the University of South Carolina (2013). 

  

Adrienne has over 15 years of experience working in mental health and has provided support to children, adolescents, and families within two residential treatment facilities, client’s homes, and at an outpatient pediatric medical practice.  Providing therapeutic services in these varied settings has given her an opportunity to work with children from all walks of life. 

  

Her methods are guided by her strongly held belief that connection is the most integral piece in facilitating growth and healing. She utilizes an individualized approach that is tailored to the needs of each client and includes art and play therapy methods, cognitive behavioral therapy (including trauma-focused CBT), and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) interventions and skills training.  Although she has a firm foundation in behavior modification, Adrienne now approaches much of her work from a neurodevelopmental and trauma-informed lens.  Instead of just focusing on the problematic behavior, Adrienne helps families understand how their children’s brains work and the importance of positive parenting approaches to establish a secure attachment with their children.   

  

She specializes in working with children and families that are dealing with trauma, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, and other behavioral and emotional difficulties.  Treatment focuses on enhancing individual strengths while acquiring necessary skills to improve emotional regulation, communication, and family dynamics.    

 

Adrienne is married with two young children.  She and her family are active in their church and enjoy hiking, playing outside, and watching football.
