Get To Know Me

Hey Ya’ll!

I’m Dr. Brina J, the self-love connoisseur. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC| Supervisor Candidate & Nationally Certified Counselor. In my years of practice I have learned that people simply want to find purpose, passion, & peace in their lives, and I am a firm believer that this happens by being your most authentic self. I am passionate about helping others create a balance between self-love and selflessness, that allows them to own who they are and to have the most authentic life they desire.

Since becoming a licensed professional counselor & counselor educator I have had a wealth of opportunities that have shaped my professional expertise. I am licensed in both South Carolina and Georgia. I also received my doctorate degree in Counselor Education & Supervision at the University of South Carolina where I have served as an adjunct professor.

In addition to providing clinical services, I enjoy providing clinical supervision to future counselors. I also enjoy educating communities on various mental health topics. I have been a guest speaker on the SC DHEC sponsored virtual show Coping with Tre’ Tailor for Wellness Wednesday, served on several panels & given many presentations on topics ranging from:

  • Mental Health & Wellness
  • Cultural humility and multicultural development
  • Eating disorders and body image



The Black community is over-sick & underserved. At Legacy of Love Counseling & Wellness, we strive to promote and encourage wellness within the Black community by

Reducing Stigma

around mental health through education.

Restoring Hope

by providing support & culturally-sensitive care

Revitalizing Love

of self and others to create a lasting legacy of health, wealth, and wholeness.


  • To provide ethical, evidence-based, & culturally-sensitive services to Black Women & WOC.
  • To strengthen trust & relationships between minorities & health professionals.
  • To educate minority communities on mental, physical, emotional, spiritual, & financial wellness.
  • To reduce health disparities amongst Black women & within the Black community by using cultural humility to reduce cultural mistrust.

Engaging in counseling is a choice, as is making change. When working with me, I’ll strive to help you along your journey of change to create a legacy you’ll be proud of.
