About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Georgia with 17 years of professional experience. I am experienced in helping clients who are coping with grief and loss, stress and anxiety, depression, family/relationship conflicts, as well as LGBTQ+ specific concerns. I have worked in the hospice field for many years and have developed a wealth of knowledge surrounding grief and loss in all aspects of life. I have also worked with those living with HIV/AIDS and understand the unique set of challenges faced by this community. My varied work and life experiences give me a sincere and empathic lens which I use to help my clients as they embark on their therapeutic journeys. I believe that this sincerity comes across with each person with whom I have worked.

My therapy style is warm, engaging, and interactive. My therapeutic approaches vary based on each specific client and their unique needs. I am also trained in Motivational Interviewing which gives my clients the tools to be able to take charge of their lives. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment and I believe in treating everyone with respect and compassion.

Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage and I am here to support and empower you in that process.

I look forward to working with you!

Amy Wallins has been a lifeline for me during the most difficult time of my life. She is empathetic, kind, and incredibly skilled. She has created a therapeutic environment that is perfect for me, and has helped me work through issues I’ve been struggling with my whole life. I enthusiastically recommend her.

Amy has reintroduced a supportive reinforcement in my life in such a short time. I appreciate the ear she lends and advice she gives. There’s no one way to do therapy and Amy uses all of her knowledge to help you.

Amy is compassionate, curious, and down to earth. She draws on her extensive experience with hospice care to help humans process grief. Her sense of humor and storytelling abilities are appreciated as well!
