Amor Kok, EdD, LPC, NCC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Peachtree City
My passion is helping people of all ages understand their exceptionalities, finding their strengths, as well as understanding their disability. Most importantly, to also develop and expand their many abilities. Prior to joining The Life Change Group as a Licensed Professional Counselor, I was the Counselor for the Exceptional Children's Services in the Fayette County Schools. I will help my clients navigate the challenges they may face in school, college and work settings. With my extensive knowledge of Education Law and Special Needs experience, I have a clear understanding on how to help parents, children, adolescents, and young adults.
I specialize in individual and group therapy, working with clients on the autism spectrum, including non-verbal learning disabilities, cognitive disabilities, and executive functioning challenges. My other passion is working with immigrants to adjust and acculturate. Having immigrated twice I know that the adjustment in the educational and new social environment has it's challenges.
My background includes many diverse experiences. Having completed two degrees in business, majoring in Economics, Accounting and Industrial Psychology, career counseling is an interest. My Doctoral research was on social skills training; topics include communication skills, perspective taking, self-advocacy, self-esteem, self-regulation and soft skills in the workplace.
