Christel Walker, LPC
Hi! My name is Christel Walker and I am an LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) in the State of Georgia. I have a Master’s Degree in Counseling and over 10 years of experience working in the mental health field. I have worked in a variety of settings including outpatient clinics, colleges, and facilities like jails and residential programs as well as courts & specialized treatment courts. Listing the various settings is just another way of saying I have extensive experience working with a wide range and severity of clinical issues with a broad range of clients. My most extensive experience comes from working with depression, anxiety, stress management, family/relationship conflicts, adjusting to life transitions, and complex trauma/abuse.
I use a person-centered, solution-focused, collaborative, narrative style in treatment. This means we work together to identify where you would like to begin. You will guide the direction of where your story goes and determine the solution you want for the problem(s) you identify. I will work with you to identify a plan to achieve your desired goals or redefine your goal! This generally will happen with my use of a variety of techniques pulling from cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, wellness, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused techniques to achieve your goals!
I look forward to working you!

Christel has been an amazing help in working on some deep issues over the past few months. Having already done a good amount of work on myself, I was surprised that Christel was able to easily guide me towards identifying and understanding my behaviours and reactions. From the first session, I felt like I was talking to someone familiar to me and felt comfortable opening up, especially given that Christel manages to navigate difficult conversations without ever making them feel heavy, which has been such a relief to me. I would highly recommend her as a counsellor! Thank you, Christel.

Today marks my last session with Christel after a fantastic and educational journey of 9 months. From the beginning, I was really struggling with stress, relationship issues, ADHD etc. Today, I am back on my feet and achieving and exceeding my goals again. All thanks to Christel! Her expertise helped me so much that words can't describe it. She's professional, approachable, and most importantly, she will guide you and help you solve whatever problems you are having. Best therapist out there! Thank you, Christel. I owe you one big time!

I have had Mrs. C. Walker as my counselor for approximately 7 of the toughest months in my recent memory. At first, I was apprehensive about video therapy. I soon got used it because she made me somehow felt warm and familiar. I began to open up and with her suggestions and support. I began to have breakthroughs. Some session, I cried, some sessions, we laughed. Overall, she made my feel important because she responded to my needs. I will never forget her helping me through such a dark time. I appreciate her and recommending her is a must.

Christel is a fantastic therapist, and has helped me tremendously through a challenging time. I feel like a different person since starting therapy, and it is in large part to the support that Christel has provided.

I have been so happy with how quickly Christel has been able to plug in and quickly get acquainted with my circumstances. She listens very intently and asks thought provoking questions to get me to think about the things I am struggling with. She also gives me tangible advice and plans to implement to change my circumstances for the better. So far I am really enjoying working with her and highly recommend Christel and BetterHelp.
