Jessica S Willhite, MS, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Atlanta
I enjoy working with many types of people and the challenges they are having. The areas of grief and trauma, including the secondary effects, such as anxiety, depression, anger, relationship/trust issues,self-medicating and stagnation are my specialties. I use an eclectic approach to working with my clients, meaning that I like to employ many different styles of counseling into sessions. I approach issues honestly, openly and directly. I have been described as warm, genuine, easy to talk to and dedicated. I view every client in a holistic way. Rather than asking "what's wrong with you?" I ask "what have you been through?"
The effects of trauma and grief/loss can wreak havoc on lives and often cause anxiety, depression, mood dysregulation, relationship/Intimacy issues and many other problems. The good news is there is hope and I am delighted that you are ready to take the journey towards healing.
I use multiple evidence-based treatments, including: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR); Brainspotting, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Mindfullness/Zen and other modalities to best suit each client and their individual needs. Together we will tailor a plan that works for you.
