Samaritan Center for Counseling and Wellness, MA, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Athens
Do you struggle with Anxiety and Depression? I'm here to help! There is hope and healing for those who struggle with never feeling good enough or worry that things will never get better. I specialize in working with people who experience self-doubt, low-self esteem and relationship issues. I am passionate about helping individuals, couples and families learn positive coping skills so they can live life to the fullest. With over 25 years of working as a Pastoral Counselor, I have extensive experience incorporating spirituality into the healing process. I am open to all faiths.
Anxiety and Depression can also include PTSD, Substance Abuse, OCD, Social Anxiety, Headaches, Eating Disorders, and other physical problems. I believe strongly in a mind, body spirit connection and utilize a holistic approach to therapy; I love incorporating art, music, meditation, and journaling into your individualized treatment plan.
People are sometimes hesitant to come to counseling because their problems don't seem that bad, but they just can't seem to move forward. Where are you stuck? What can't you overcome? My approach to counseling is positive, upbeat and always about moving forward. You deserve it!

Samaritan Center for Counseling and Wellness's Groups

Spiritual Healing for Anxiety and Depression

This group will focus on anxiety and depression using Marianne Williamson's book "Tears to Triumph--Spiritual Healing for the Modern Plagues of Anxiety and Depression." Group discussions will not focus on any particular teaching but will center on a spiritual perspective of pain and suffering. "The wisest question when we are deeply sad isn't 'How can I end this pain?' The wisest question is 'What is the meaning of this pain? What does it reveal to me? What is it calling me to understand?" To register, please call 706-369-7911. Sliding fee scale (and snacks) available!
