About Me

Hello and Welcome!

My name is Maxine Douglas. I am a licensed clinical social worker in Georgia with over 20 years of experience combined working as a psychotherapist and educator. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, stress & anxiety, relationship & interpersonal issues, parenting problems, multicultural issues, and addiction. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is caring, commitment, and client centered. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines an integrative approach including cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, family, couples, and group counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!
