Because true belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world, our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance.
— Brené Brown

We at Lifeway Counseling are committed to providing the highest quality adult, child, adolescent, couple, and family therapy services for a variety of problems.

Established in Sumter, SC in 2005 by Gina Smith, Lifeway Counseling cultivates a climate where you can feel valued and supported in the important work you desire to do. We utilize evidence based approaches to help our clients strengthen their relationships with themselves and others.



Our Philosophy

  1. We understand psychotherapy as the process of helping you realize your full potential for happiness, fulfillment, and wellbeing.
  2. We believe in having a collaborative relationship with you. As therapists, we are students as well as teachers, respectfully learning about you and how we can help.
  3. We will treat you as a whole person in the full context of your life. We will carefully consider your health (both physical and mental), your emotions, your relationships, and your spiritual community.
