Lynne Kilgore, MEd, LPC, Counselor in Birmingham
I began human service work in 1986 after receiving my Bachelor of Science degree in Counseling from the University of Montevallo, located in Montevallo, Alabama. I received my Master of Education in Counseling from the University of Montevallo in 1994. I became a Licensed Professional Counselor in 2001. I am currently licensed in Alabama and Georgia (inactive at present in Georgia), and am a board certified supervisor for those wishing to become licensed counselors. I focus on the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, so that my patient can change a negative pattern of thought that prevents joy. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is also utilized in therapy.
My services include Individual Counseling for adults, children, and adolescents. Family counseling (including marital) is also included in my services. Common issues of my interest and expertise include, but are not limited to, addiction, depression, anxiety, sleep, spiritual and behavioral, etc. I also have a strong background in working with foster care and adoption issues.
A hurtful past cannot change, but moving through fear and hurt leads to acceptance, and then peace becomes evident.
