Elizabeth Wofford, PhD, LPC, Core Faculty Member, Clinical Director

Dr. Wofford currently serves as the Program Director of the Clinical Counseling program. She joined the faculty at Charleston Southern University in 2018 when she and her husband moved to Charleston from Texas. She has worked as a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas since 2014, and specializes in trauma, working with adult children of parents with personality disorders, and general life adjustment issues her clients may be experiencing.

Dr. Wofford’s dissertation research explored the experience of internalizing symptoms (depression, anxiety, and stress) and the connection between those symptoms and a variety of trauma that was experienced before the age of 18. Her research found that emotional abuse specifically is strongly connected to, and can often predict, the experience of anxiety, depression, or stress in adulthood. Her current research efforts include students’ experiences of trauma education, and other topics in Counseling Education as well as faith integration both in the classroom and in the field.

Your Purpose. Our Mission.

I am passionate about helping students become skilled counselors and enjoy spending time one-on-one to help the students process class material and learn how to apply it to real cases and clients.
