Annie McFadden, LPC
You have come to the place in your journey of life to recognize that there are potentially other ways to work through situations/problems/issues/circumstances. You made the decision to seek assistance by reaching out. I am so glad you did. My name is Annie, and I consider it a privilege to be considered as a prospective agent of change to assist you through this era of your life.
I am a licensed professional counselor in Georgia with over 15 years in the mental health field. Over the years, I have worked with clients experiencing the emergence of first and secondary trauma, violence, mental, emotional, anxiety, depression, and behavioral problems, along with other debilitating mental health disorders at many levels.
My experience includes assessing, diagnosing, and treating mental health and behavioral disorders in a State approved private outpatient community mental health center. The center services children, adolescents, families, and adults. Currently, I am transitioning from the role at the community center as clinical director into private practice.
I describe my approach to helping clients as integrative. I draw from a variety of modalities to meet the individual therapeutic needs of the individual client. The most frequent integration of modalities includes but not limited to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Person-Centered Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Motivational Interviewing (MI), Mindfulness-based Therapy, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT). Based on faith-based beliefs, the named modalities are integrated in the healing process.
In summary, I view the therapeutic relationship as a partnership that requires honesty, trust, integrity, respect, and mutual communication. I wholeheartedly believe the integrative approach is embedded in a holistic stance by focusing on the whole person. My intrinsic approach meets the client with empathy, care, concern, and supported hope to become a healthier person for self, others, and society at large. Hopefully, what I have shared will give you some insight as to select the best fit for a therapist. Should you choose me, I look forward to our journey together.

She’s really caused my life to change. Helping me to have insight on putting God first. Helping me realize that it’s ok to be a sheep. It’s ok to give it to God. I don’t have to do it myself. I really like her. She’s down to earth and compassionate and empathetic. Most of all she loves God and I can tell.
