About me

Hello, my name is Evalee and I am a licensed clinical social worker in Georgia and South Carolina with over 20 years of experience working in mental health and social services as a counselor. I graduated from Savannah State University with a Master's degree in Social Work with a clinical concentration. I have worked in a variety of settings with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, Bipolar disorder, relationship issues, parenting problems, life changes, OCD, ADHD, ODD, anger management skills, LGBTQ related issues, intellectual disabilities, women's issues, and caregiver stress. I also helped many people who have experienced trauma and abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach to therapy combines cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral, mindfulness, solution focused, psycho-education, and psychodynamic counseling. I approach therapy from a person centered and strengths based perspective. Your treatment plan will be individualized to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek improved mental health. It is brave to take this step, and I am here to support you in a safe and understanding environment to empower you.

I am able to work with children, youth, teens, adults, older adults and couples.

I look forward to working with you!

Evalee Is honestly the best therapist I’ve ever had. She is very kind and understanding But also tells you things that you need to hear in order to better yourself. She makes you feel safe seeing her and understood which in my experience is always very difficult when it comes to finding a therapist

Evalee is a constant support. She is always present fully in sessions and she always seeks to find new approaches to help you grow and meet your goals. She does not give up on her clients. I highly recommend her support services to any that feel her warmth and personality will assist them in healing.
