Mary Jo McInerny, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Are you feeling anxious or depressed because of a life transition?

Is a crisis or stressful situation making you feel paralyzed?

Does life seem more complicated than you can handle on your own?

During times of stress and transition, it is easy to lose faith in your skills and abilities. I will help you discover resilience and learn new and effective coping skills. Working together, you will build strength and courage and find that times of change can be an opportunity for a new beginning.

For over 30 years, I have helped schools, clinics, and the Department of Juvenile Justice and worked as a Supreme Court Certified Divorce and Family Mediator. For the past 10 years, I have been an adjunct professor and advisor at both Furman University and Webster University. I currently work with men and women from 25-70 years of age.

I received my bachelor’s degree from the College of Charleston and my master’s degree in Counseling from Rollins College. I also pursued advanced education from The Citadel’s counseling program.

In addition to clients who are private pay, I am in-network with the following insurance companies:

  • Blue Cross Blue Shield (all plans)

If you have questions or are ready to begin counseling, contact us today.  Charleston Counseling Center accepts a variety of insurance plans and our friendly administrative staff will answer your questions and get you scheduled.  Don’t continue to feel alone in your struggles, we are here to help.
