About Us

Welcome! We are so glad you are here and allowing us to be a resource for your healing journey! Deeper Roots Therapy was founded in 2019 by the director, Emilee Scruggs, as a sole practitioner. Over time, the practice grew and Emilee’s passion has been to both provide a wide array of mental health specializations to clients as well as create an environment in which clinicians can thrive! In January 2024, Emilee’s husband, Wesley Scruggs, joined in leading the Deeper Roots Therapy team with offices located in Simpsonville, Mauldin, and Goose Creek. Both Emilee and Wesley have a heart and goal to ensure that every individual who walks through our doors knows that their story matters and will be handled with care! Our team consists of Licensed Counselors, Social Workers, and a Nurse Practitioner who each specialize in various treatment models and approaches, diagnoses, populations, and work with children, adolescents, adults, families, couples, and more! At Deeper Roots Therapy, we are honored to be a part of your mental health journey, and appreciate you allowing us the opportunity to care for and serve you and your family!
