About Jodi


Sometimes we hear better when we know the ground from which it grew!

Born and raised in Charleston, nothing brings me more joy than getting to come along side of others in the low country! For more than thirteen years now, I have had the honor of helping others in the greater Charleston area as they sort through the various chapters of their lives.  I consider it a true gift to listen and to come along side of them in this process.  

About Jodi:

Jodi Dunphy is a Licensed Professional Counselor by the state of South Carolina. Jodi attended Liberty University for her undergraduate degree and The Citadel - College of Graduate and Professional Studies for her Masters of Art in Psychology - Clinical Counseling. She has a history of clinical experience working with children, adolescents and adults who have been exposed to trauma, abuse and/or neglect. 

Jodi has spent the past decade studying the field of attachment and trauma. She is fully certified in EMDR therapy and has extensive training in ego state work, attachment, and complex trauma. 

Today Jodi works in the private practice setting and focuses her practice on healing from attachment wounds and trauma. The majority of her counseling work is done through counseling intensives which give her the opportunity to focus a large amount of time on one individual person at a time. 

Along side of Jodi's work as a therapist she enjoys speaking to schools, youth groups, churches and other organizations about pertinent issues such as personal identity, human growth and development, and specific topics often addressed in counseling such as depression, anxiety, emotion regulation, grief and loss, and trauma.
