About Me

It is amazing what you can accomplish whenever you have the right help. Whether you are suffering from Anxiety, Depression, or even relationship issues, I can help.

I work with teens and adults to overcome challenges that are impacting the ability to love a meaningful and fulfilled life. I have been licensed for six (6) years and have been working in mental health for over fifteen (15) years.

My therapeutic style is pretty eclectic and individualized. I have training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I pull from each of these theoretical frameworks to best fit the need(s) of my clients.

I have helped people learn to overcome things like. ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, Divorce, Emotional Disturbance, Family Conflict, Learning Disabilities, Life Transitions, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Parenting, Peer Relationships, Pregnancy and Postpartum, Relationship Issues, School Issues, Self-Esteem, Self-Harming, Stress, and Women's Issues. I truly believe in meeting individuals where they are, and my interventions are guided by the client.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the states of Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia. I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree from Brewton-Parker College in 2003, where I was a member of the varsity soccer team. My husband and I married in 2004 and moved to North Carolina to be House Parents for children that had emotional and behavioral challenges. It was in this position that I discovered my passion for, and my ability to work with children and adolescents, leading to the completion of my Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of South Carolina in 2008.

Emily is an awesome therapist and I recommend her. She supports me and also pushes me out of my comfort zone in a good way. She is direct in her communication style which I appreciate. Her techniques, including mindfulness, have been helpful.

Emily Hawkins has been an authentically compassionate listener and therapist for me. I appreciate her non judgmental and straight to the point approach to mental health and life redirecting strategies. She empowers me with tools to build a better emotional foundation that is creating a more positive future for myself and my children.
