Holly has a passion for helping clients develop holistically and learn about their strengths, gifts, skills, and passions that will ultimately point them toward a rewarding life and career. Over the last 19 years, she has been a counselor in many different environments, including nursing homes, private and state clinics, and hospitals for youth and adolescents.
Being a licensed professional counselor, Holly has experience treating children, adolescents, and adults with diverse backgrounds and ranges of concerns. Holly’s approach to therapy is best described as “eclectic”; primarily guided by her training in Adlerian therapy. Holly also uses cognitive-behavioral therapy and supportive therapy as best suits the individual patient’s needs. Psychotherapy is dialogue, not advice; and has the aim of helping the patient increase self-awareness, acceptance, and understanding. Using Adlerian concepts allows clients to feel encouraged to overcome feelings of insecurity and develop deeper feelings of connectedness. During treatment, clients will be challenged to correct mistaken assumptions, attitudes, behaviors, and feelings about themselves and the world. Holly’s goal is to consistently encourage clients to attempt what was believed impossible. The growth of confidence, pride, and gratification leads to a greater desire and ability to lead a rich full life.
Holly has degrees in both psychology and Christian counseling, and also graduated with a master’s degree in Community Counseling from Georgia State University.
