Amelia Barton

(LPC, MDiv, Rev)

About Me

I am an LPC and ordained minister in Georgia and have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, veterans, grief, and marriage counseling. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I have a Master of Divinity because I believe that going to Christ for healing is the most powerful tool we have.

As a part-time therapist, I spend the remainder of my time focusing on furthering my education as well as serving in the Air Force Reserves. My education is focused both in counseling as well as military trauma and Christian theology. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, Master's degrees in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Divinity in Military Chaplaincy, and currently working towards a Masters in Pastoral Counseling in Military Resilience. My clinical focus is secular with the addition of Christian theology at the request of the client.

I believe each person is unique and I strive to incorporate a holistic approach that allows the ability to explore how a presenting concern affects a client in all areas of their life. My goal is to assist you to make healthy life decisions on their current concerns and also prepare for decisions in the future.

Any client that has the courage to attend counseling I believe is the ideal client. That first step is the most difficult to take in therapy, which takes courage. When a client is motivated to face their current issues and concerns, it opens up the door to healing, growth, and learning. As a counselor, my goal for each client is that they stay dedicated to their therapy process.

I am a strong believer in the teachings of Dave Ramsey and his class Financial Peace University. If at any point you are needing financial advisement, I will refer to the information published on www.daveramsey.com.
