Hi, I’m Sarah, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) working in the Athens area. Most folks report experiencing me as someone who is warm, grounded, and authentic. My aim is to build our relationship so that you can find the ability to be safe and at ease while at the same time able to dig into deeper, more difficult material. I pull from both practical approaches and more abstract, emotion based ones to dial into what you individually would most benefit from or need in an active way. This is a fully collaborative process with you. You can expect a space that allows honesty, imperfection, humor, and perhaps some tears and choice language at times, if you choose. My style is not forceful or controlling.
Angie Cleland is a licensed clinical social worker with over 15 years experience counseling children, adults, and families. Angie has worked in various positions throughout her career helping individuals and families experiencing grief, depression, anxiety, anger, general adjustment issues, and life cycle changes. Angie has advanced perinatal mood & anxiety disorder training and hopes to help mothers who are experiencing prenatal & postpartum symptoms.
I'm Katie, and I am passionate about working with children and families, especially those who have experienced trauma. Because we are often hurt in relationships, I believe that relationships are also where we must go to find healing. As a counselor, I do my best to create a safe, healing relationship for each child, teen, and adult I see while also encouraging and empowering them to safely seek healing relationship in others, whether that be with a spouse, parent/caregiver, friend, or God. I have specific interest and training in working with foster and adoptive families and the precious children in their care.
