About me

Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC-S), Registered Play Therapist (RPT-S), and National Certified Counselor (NCC) licensed in South Carolina and North Carolina with over 8 years of counseling experience. I also provide supervision for LPCI and have worked with young child, adolescent, and adult clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, foster care/adoption, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, ADHD and ODD. I also help people who have experienced physical, sexual or emotional abuse and trauma.

My counseling style is warm, interactive, and sometimes playful when needed. I believe in treating everyone as I would like to be treated, with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I believe in the inherent worth and value of others and that nutritional deficiencies underlie many of the lingering issues. My approach combines person-centered, cognitive-behavioral, motivational, and dialectic behavior counseling. If you would like to schedule a time to talk, go to my schedule and select a day and time that is convenient for you. In addition, you can always let me know if there are no convenient times for you.

Congratulations on taking the first step to a more fulfilling and happier life. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support you.

I look forward to working with you! Darlinda

Ms. Banda is insightful, patient, and incredibly empathetic. Whenever I speak with her, I leave feeling so much more assured. She has helped me collaboratively make changes in my life and thought patterns, and I'm immensely grateful for her.

Darlinda has made this experience so comfortable, yet so professional for me. In the past I felt that in office, or in person was the only effective way of getting beneficial results from counseling. In fact, I now know that if I didn’t have the online option I would never have started this process at all. I have been able to schedule my appointments around my busy schedule. I’m very pleased with my Therapist and would highly recommend it!!!!

I’ve only had a few session with Ms. Darlinda Banda and I feel like a new person. She is very understanding, knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. My only regret is not speaking with her much sooner. I recommend her very highly.
