Hayley Lovelace; MS, NCC
Hi! My name is Hayley Lovelace. I am a board-certified counselor (NCC) with a master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am currently enrolled as a doctoral student at Mercer University to continue my education in Counselor Education and Supervision. I believe that empathy and meeting a client exactly where they are in the beginning is the cornerstone to an effective therapeutic process and a successful outcome in treatment, because individuals are more likely to experience the benefits of treatment when shame and negative perceptions about one’s mental health do not play a large factor. Like Carl Rogers once said: “The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.” You are not a problem to be fixed!
