About Me

Welcome! My name is Margaret "Gibson" Ellison. I have 23 years experience as a counselor, which has provided me with experiences necessary to assist clients with overcoming obstacles created by anxiety, depression, substance use disorders, trauma, relationship dysfunction, and societal pressures. I hold specialty certifications in chemical and sexual addiction, and am also certified as a Rainbow Advocate Educator. I have worked across a variety of settings: inpatient, outpatient, private practice and virtual platforms. I have been in private practice in Conyers, Georgia for the last 14 years. My focus is collaborative, client-centered and motivational. I have witnessed strong positive outcomes facilitated through the therapeutic relationship, listening objectively and pursuing goals that we build and set together.

I believe a person's decision to enter counseling demonstrates courage and willingness to make positive changes. Together with my clients, we form a therapeutic alliance that facilitates personal growth and self-improvement. I enjoy working with adults 18 and over, and seeing them achieve their goals. I do not believe in a ,"cookie-cutter" approach to therapy, and am dedicated to providing an individual, personal counseling experience, unique to the specific needs of my clients. I enjoy providing a holistic approach to counseling, by focusing on each client as a whole person, comprised of beautiful parts within.

I understand that no two people are the same, and am devoted to providing everyone who, "walks," onto my screen, with individualized care in order to meet your personal needs. I am excited to support you during this time of transformation, while respecting your independence. You have taken a momentous step forward by reaching out, and I am committed to taking this journey with you. If you have any questions, or would like additional details, please don't hesitate to message me.
Thank you so much, I look forward to hearing from you.

Margaret is a wonderful therapist who really listens to your issues in a non-judgemental manner. She provides me with great coping mechanisms and tries to help me figure out why I am strugglingl or why I make certain decisions and how I can learn from and know the triggers that cause me to perform certain actions.
