Credentials and Professional Experience

Meredith is a Licensed Associate Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Mercer University and her Master of Education degree in School Counseling from the University of West Georgia. She completed post-master’s coursework toward clinical mental health counseling licensure at John Carroll University in Ohio.

Meredith has experience working with adults, teens, couples, and families. Her areas of focus include anxiety, depression, women’s issues, trauma, relationships and attachment, LGBTQ+ issues, and self-acceptance.

Approach

Meredith is passionate about helping people break free from patterns that keep them stuck. While she draws from a wide range of treatment approaches, she most consistently uses internal family systems, emotionally focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused methods. She works together with clients on developing self compassion, exploring new approaches to problem solving, and finding new paths forward.

Meredith views relationships, with both our social networks and ourselves, as central to healing and growth. Much of her work with clients involves skill-building around clear communication, clarifying needs, and boundary setting. Other tools she utilizes focus on expanding self awareness and building shame resilience. She considers the mind-body connection key and often incorporates breathing, mindfulness, and movement into therapy.
