Compass of Carolina is pleased to announce that Kheri Corbin has joined our nonprofit agency as a Child and Adolescent Therapist.  Kheri has served the Child and Adolescent population in the Upstate for 12 years through mentoring, counseling, and instructing in various roles.

A native of Columbia, Kheri is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. She earned her B.A. Degree in Psychology from Clemson University, Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Converse College, and Graduate Certificate in Sports Counseling from California University of Pennsylvania. She received her clinical training at Westgate Family Therapy Institute (renamed Emerge) in Spartanburg. Kheri is a member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.

“I am excited about the opportunity to therapeutically aid children and adolescents at the reputable organization of Compass of Carolina,” Kheri said. “I enjoy being instrumental in encouraging youth to develop purposeful and healthy ways of living.”

Kheri said that through her professional, academic, and clinical experiences, she has learned the significant impact of family and culture during the vulnerable and impressionable stages of childhood and adolescence.

“The addition of a Child and Adolescent Therapist at Compass of Carolina will allow us to meet some critical needs in our community,” said Beth Padgett, the agency’s Executive Director. “Kheri is a highly qualified therapist, and she brings much experience and enthusiasm to her new job.”
