Caryn Pons, LCSW, Owner
I have held my LCSW in the state of Georgia since 2004. I attended Emory University with a Double Major in Spanish and Psychology and then received my Masters in Social Work from Boston College Graduate School of Social Work. I have been working with adults, kids and families for over 16 years now and have a variety of experience working in both the mental health field and in the school setting.
I believe that a huge part of the therapeutic process is having a trusting relationship between the client and therapist in order to effect change. I strive to partner with my clients on their journey to becoming their best selves. My approach to counseling contains elements of Cognitive-Behavioral, Mindfulness, Strengths-Based, Narrative, and Solution-Focused therapies. Through the therapeutic process, I help clients identify and reach their goals.
My specialties include behavior issues in children and adolescents, parenting support, managing anger, anxiety, and depression. I also have a lot of experience working with victims of domestic violence and children dealing with divorce.
Amber Fort, LMFT
I graduated from Georgia Southern University with a degree in Psychology and then obtained my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Mercer University. I enjoy working with families, adults, couples and adolescents. I have experience with managing anxiety and depression, providing parenting support, increasing self esteem, relationship issues, and substance abuse.
I believe in working with my clients to help them create a more fulfilling life for themselves and to achieve their goals. We have the tools within us to better ourselves, sometimes we just need help finding them.
I utilize several therapeutic methods, specifically Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and Solution-Focused Therapy. I have also been trained in Gottman Couples Therapy.
Ivory Fillmore, MSW Intern
I am a Senior Graduate Student at the University of Georgia, completing a Masters in Social Work and a Certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy. Prior to this, I obtained a Bachelors in Human Relations from Point University that also focused on Counseling & Social Work.
I believe that every client I have the opportunity to work with possesses innate strength that, when identified, can support them in their process of achieving their therapeutic goals and overall well-being. I am passionate about empowering my clients to overcome obstacles they may encounter during this process and to achieve their goals. I help clients to identify their strengths and to equip them with the right tools, resources, and adequate support.
I utilize several approaches that include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Strengths-Based Therapy, and Mindfulness Skills Training.
