Kelly Whitmire


About Me


I am a licensed clinical social worker in Georgia (LCSW) and I have been working in the counseling field since 2004. I have experience working with children, parents and families in many different settings. My work has included guiding families through issues related to neglect and abuse, foster care and adoption, blended families and communication issues. I have worked with parents who are struggling with stresses related to parenting children and teens. In addition, I love assisting women who are struggling with the pressures of motherhood to find peace and confidence in that role.

I mostly tend to draw from a client centered modality when in a therapeutic relationship with my clients. This means that I make consistent efforts to meet each client "where they are" and to allow a space where each client can feel heard and that their feelings are valued. I also pull from other modalities to guide my work, such as
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution-Focused Therapy.

I enjoy and feel honored to be a part of someone’s personal journey towards growth and peace. I provide a non-judgment, criticism free environment where my clients can feel safe to share their feelings and develop a plan to move forward to a place of peace and comfort.

I look forward to working with you!
