About Me

Thank you for your interest and congratulations in taking the first steps in reaching your goals and making the changes you want to make!

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) licensed in the state of Georgia. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns such as depression, anxiety, life transitions, work related stress, parenting challenges, ADHD, and Autism.

I believe that counseling can provide education, support and a plan for the direction you would like to go. Therapy is a safe place where you can explore many emotions, fears and patterns of behavior that are preventing you from healing yourself and living a life where you are content and at peace. Any answers you need about how to live the life that is going to bring you fulfillment, joy and peace, are within you. Healing requires action. You can heal yourself with some bold and decisive moves. Counseling can provide a plan of action. If you are dealing with life transitions, stress, depression or anxiety, it is time to get real with yourself and deal with anything that isn't serving you. Commit to feeding thoughts, words and actions that are going to lead to joy and growth.

My approach is primarily Cognitive Behavioral. This simply means that as we discuss what brings you to therapy I may focus on the two things. First the cognitive piece: what are you thinking or what are thoughts/beliefs that you have that aren't working for you and how do we change those. Then, the behavioral piece: what are things you keep doing that's not working for you and how do we change those. I am a support person for you as you determine what your goals are and we develop a plan on how to get there.

My office hours are Monday-Wednesday, 8 am- 4 pm EDT. There is some flexibility with that if needed.

I look forward to working with you!

Dr. McGee is always thoughtful, caring, and open minded during sessions. She is deeply empathetic and always brings confidence and expertise to the table.

Written by E.V. on Mar 06, 2021 after therapy with Jennifer for 11 months on issues concerning self esteem, and bipolar disorder

Jennifer has helped me structure my thoughts, and asked new questions I need to answer that can help me getting where I want to be. She has provided tremendous support during this pandemic, and facilitated - with her own wisdom and kindness - in bringing clarity and relief in some areas of my life. I would greatly recommend her.

Dr. McGee is a great therapist. I especially appreciate her flexibility with meeting times. She is willing to work with me to figure out what my issues are and is patient. She has a lot of experience and is able to relate to me in many ways to help me through.

Dr. McGee knows what I need to hear when I need to hear it. She offers compassionate nonjudgmental advice, and is helping me through a very difficult time in my life.

Written by T.R. on Jun 05, 2020 after therapy with Jennifer for 2 weeks on issues concerning trauma and abuse, grief, and self esteem

Dr. McGee has been incredible in my healing. In just the 2 weeks I've been working with her we've revealed several underlying issues that I would never have discovered on my own.

She is compassionate and caring, yet tough. Which is exactly what I need.

Love working with her!
