Amelia Barton

(LPC, MDiv, Rev)

About Me

I am an LPC in Georgia and have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, veterans, grief, and marriage counseling. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

As a part-time therapist, I spend the remainder of my time focusing on furthering my education as well as serving in the Air Force Reserves. My education is focused both in counseling as well as military trauma and Christian theology. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, Master's degrees in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Divinity in Military Chaplaincy, and currently working towards a Masters in Pastoral Counseling in Military Resilience. My clinical focus is secular with the addition of Christian theology at the request of the client.

I believe each person is unique and I strive to incorporate a holistic approach that allows the ability to explore how a presenting concern affects a client in all areas of their life. My goal is to assist you to make healthy life decisions on current concerns and also prepare for decisions in the future.

Any client that has the courage to attend counseling I believe is the ideal client. That first step is the most difficult to take in therapy, which takes courage. When a client is motivated to face their current issues and concerns, it opens up the door to healing, growth, and learning. As a counselor, my goal for each client is that they stay dedicated to their therapy process.

I am a strong believer in the teachings of Dave Ramsey and his class Financial Peace University. If at any point you are needing financial advisement, I will refer to the information published on www.daveramsey.com.

She’s great and doesn’t make you feel misunderstood when you do open up to her. I always feel better after talking to her about my week.

Written by B.R. on Apr 29, 2020 after counseling with Amelia for 1 month on issues concerning grief, and coping with life changes

I'm a little over a month into our counseling sessions. I continue to be extremely satisfied and impressed. My respect for Amelia has continued to grow. Her insight and observations are nothing short of incredible. Wise beyond her years. And she listens. And sometimes pulls the words out of me, which I need. She is able to identify and issues and help me help myself to try to find the right answers. I know she's there every step of the way. I never imagined I could be so comfortable sharing things with a total stranger! I highly recommend Amelia Barton.

Amelia has been absolutely amazing. She listens. We defined goals in my first session and as each session is completed, I feel more relieved and closer to my goals. She’s given me great tools to help me cope with the grief of losing my wife. I’m definitely in a much better place with my mental health after connecting with Amelia.
