Katie Beals works primarily with adolescents and young adults. Her areas of concentration and competence are identity development, substance abuse counseling, grief and loss, relationship issues, anxiety, and depression.
Katie believes that healing occurs through relationship and aims to work collaboratively with her clients. She incorporates all aspects of the client’s life (mental, physical, and spiritual) to aid in a more complete understanding and healing process. She believes in supporting and empowering her clients as they work together to explore and identify the client’s strengths. Her heart is to see the restoration of hope and joy in her client’s lives as well as a truer sense of their identity and strengths.
Katie completed her undergraduate degree at The University of Georgia in Psychology with a minor in Human Development and Family Sciences. She completed her graduate work at UGA as well, and graduated with a Master of Education in Professional Community Counseling. She is also certified to provide substance use counseling in both an individual and group setting.
Katie’s favorite activity is spending time with her friends and family at a new restaurant or over a good home cooked meal. She spends her free time painting, doing calligraphy, cooking, or participating in organized sports.
