Tara Wooten

Licensed Professional Counselor

Welcome to Grounded Counseling, LLC.  I strive to provide a compassionate, collaborative, and safe environment for children, adolescent and young adults to receive evidence-based treatments for anxiety, OCD and related disorders.  In the past decade, I have gained experience in assessing and treating Charleston area youth, while providing support to their families and caregivers. 

Areas of Expertise

  • Anxiety and related disorders
    • Social anxiety
    • Panic disorder
    • Specific phobias
    • Selective mutism
    • Separation anxiety 
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and related disorders 
    • Body Dysmorphia​
    • Trichotillomania

I predominately employ a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approach in addressing issues, and have significant experience implementing evidence-based treatment. In addition to CBT, I have received specialized training and supervision utilizing Exposure and Response Prevention (ER/P) specifically in the pediatric population. In addition to CBT and ER/P, I also utilize behavioral management, mindfulness, and social skills training.
