I would be honored if you selected me to be your/your child’s therapist.
Hello! I am Alex Hopkins of Early Connections Child & Family Counseling. I specialize in counseling boys ages 8-18, and young men ages 19-22. Many of the young people I work with are recovering from trauma, and need a safe place to heal. Others are struggling to fit in with their peers, and need to know they're not alone. Some of them are navigating the tricky waters of sexual development, or identify as LGBTQ+ and need a place where they are welcomed and affirmed. A lot of the young people I work with feel anxious and/or depressed and want to feel hopeful again. All of the people I work with want to feel safe, seen, and secure.

My passion is to help strengthen the relationship between parent and child. You may feel sometimes that you and your child are having difficulty connecting to where you feel like you are not on the same page. This disconnect coupled with the pressures of school issues, can manifest in your teen through behaviors such as anger, anxiety, depression, self-identity crisis, and even self harm.

Hello and welcome! I provide a creative and exploratory environment for children, preteens, teens, and their families to navigate through the anxiety and struggles of life's challenges. With a foundation in expressive therapy and play therapy, based on client presentation and needs, I integrate both directive and non-directive play therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person Centered Therapy, and mind/body connection. I find that therapy is not a one size fits all experience and I strive to engage clients in creatively finding what will support them within the therapeutic experience.

Are you plagued with self-doubt yourseld? I can help. I specialize with ADHD, anxiety, self esteem,and infertility. I've been told that I'm warm, easy to talk to and "real". Still, I'm not afraid to call out my clients if I notice that they are engaging in unhealthy behaviors (in a gentle way of course).

And many, especially the children I work with, are happily surprised to find that there can be playful approaches to serious problems.
It has been my privilege to help people of all ages and backgrounds live their preferred story - to feel, think, and experience life the way they want. You’ve already started seeking it out. I truly believe it is the well part of someone that seeks and shows up to therapy, that knows and wants something better. Whether you are a young person, a parent, or simply a fellow human being, you can grow, learn, change & heal. It is all possible. And I see therapy not just as a way to decrease what you aren’t wanting but also a chance to increase what you’d like to experience in yourself, your life, & your family.

I work primarily with children and adolescents.
Counseling provides people with an ability to increase their insight and perspective about themselves. It enables them with appropriate skills to navigate the world around them while caring for themselves. It allows people to learn how to regulate and express their thoughts and feelings in healthy ways. Once someone has the opportunity to process their experiences, they develop the self-efficacy needed to change unhealthy patterns.

Whether you are seeking out support for yourself or your child, I am happy to provide a complimentary phone consultation to ensure that we are a good fit for working together.
Adolescence and young adulthood brings unique challenges and excitement that often requires extra support from sources outside of friends and family. Navigating changes and life transitions can feel overwhelming, anxiety producing, and generally stressful. Finding the right therapist is one of the most important factors in your success towards feeling better. I work with children, teens, young adults, and highly sensitive individuals seeking support with anxiety, life transitions, self-esteem, interpersonal relationships, managing boundaries, and executive functioning.

No one wants to live in a stressful, unhappy home. But this is the result when adults and children don't know how to communicate with each other in a safe, non-combative way. Parents whose children have ADHD, ADD or suffer from anxiety, depression, attachment and separation issues, cutting or obsessive-compulsive disorders say the coping and change strategies they develop through my counseling sessions are enabling them to become, in one mom's words, "more normal" families.

My specialties include working with adults and children who are experiencing chronic health issues, life transitions, relationship changes, career concerns, trauma, and self-discovery.
When we don't feel safe, heard, accepted, or understood, our lives become more challenging. Our defense mechanisms, the behaviors we find hardest to change, become stronger, and our worries become louder. As a therapist, I believe in creating a nurturing, safe, trusting, and non-judgemental environment where you can feel seen, heard, and free to share openly. In our sessions, the walls that were once built up can come down to create a place of acceptance and healing. I want you to know that you are good enough, you can heal, and you have the ability to save yourself!

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Atlanta, GA provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Atlanta build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
