​​​​Positive Pathways Counseling Center LLC 

Lisa Gibson, MA NCC LPCI

Positive Pathways Counseling Center LLC's mission is to provide personalized counseling services based on the client's needs. Lisa Gibson uses a combination of interventions including client or person centered, solution focused as well as cognitive behavioral techniques.


Client Centered Therapy is based on the approach invented by Carl Rogers. Rogers strongly believed that in order for a client's condition to improve a therapist should be warm, genuine and understanding. 


Solution Focused Therapy is goal oriented, targeting a desired outcome of therapy as a solution rather than focusing on the symptoms or issues that brought someone to therapy in the first place.


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT works to solve current problems and change irrational or negative thinking and behaving. The therapy is based on a combination of behavioral and cognitive principles. This method is very helpful with clients who are experiencing anxiety and or depression.

Lisa is also a professional artist and finds painting to be her own therapy! Lisa is currently licensed in the State of South Carolina to provide professional counseling services.
