I’m Cori Walker, a Licensed Certified Social Worker (LCSW, Lic #C8438) who provides counseling services for people who find themselves in the throes of the human experience. I work with adults who want to strengthen their coping skills, effectively manage mood and personality disorders, adapt to the changes that come with growing up and getting older, and navigate the tumultuous waters of trauma, grief and loss.
I was born in Louisiana and raised in Mississippi. After high school, I jumped right into the college experience, eventually earning three Master’s Degrees. I have five years of experience as a therapist and over 15 years total experience employed in human service fields. I have worked with individuals with mental illness in a variety of settings, including grant funded and nonprofit organizations, in-patient psychiatric hospitalization, two Intensive Outpatient Program/Partial Hospitalization Programs (IOP/PHP), and now in private practice.
I believe we think, feel, and behave in ways that reflect our internal monologue. I believe in empowering the individual so that he or she can live their best life. I am passionate about mental wellness and erasing the stigma that prevents people with mental health conditions from seeking treatment. My approach to therapy is one of collaboration between the client and myself. I use a variety of treatment approaches in my work because one size does not fit all. Using a strengths-based approach, I incorporate into my sessions cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused brief therapy, person centered therapy, family systems therapy, and EMDR.
As I continue on my path, I seek to embrace all moments regardless of origin. I strive to meet people where they are, recognizing that we are all here with a story to tell. We are all part of the same story… The possibilities are endless. I look forward to speaking with you.

Cori listens to what I tell her respectfully, responds thoughtfully, and looks for feedback conscientiously. I've never felt like I was being talked down to, or like any of the problems I try to write off as being "too small" were treated as too small.
