The Summit has trained clinicians that offer specialized programming to reach the needs of our community.

Alcohol and Substance Abuse

Our goal is to help you assess your need for addiction services by determining the level of care that best fits you. Our addiction specialists provide assessments, education, support, intervention, therapy, recovery planning, and accountability. Usually, when one member of the family has an issue with alcoholism or addiction, other family members discover that they need help as well. Working together as a couple or family can motivate the recovering person to put added effort into their recovery and bring healing to other family members.

Crisis Assessments

A mental health crisis is a situation in which someone is at risk to themselves or others due to an unstable mental situation. The goal of an assessment is to stabilize the crisis, create a safety plan, and assess for the need to refer for additional services (outpatient, inpatient or hospitalization). If you or some one you know is experiencing a mental health crisis and cannot reach anyone at our office, call the Georgia Crisis Access Line at 1-800-715-4225 or visit your nearest emergency room.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

A specialized form of therapy that is designed to help adults, adolescents and their families cope with dysregulated emotions and behaviors in combination with some of the following issues:

  • Impulsivity
  • Thoughts of suicide or self-injury
  • Overwhelming emotions such as sadness, anxiety, or anger
  • Struggles with identity or constantly changing “sense of self”
  • Difficulty maintaining healthy relationships

The Summit Counseling Center offers a full protocol DBT program including individual counseling and skills groups for adults, adolescents and their families which are facilitated by Intensively Trained DBT Clinicians.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is an effective treatment for trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This type of interactive psychotherapy encourages the person that is experiencing an emotional distress to briefly focus on the trauma memory while simultaneously experiencing bilateral stimulation (typically eye movements). This process changes the way a memory is stored in the brain and reduces the vividness and emotion associated with the trauma memories and thoughts.

Marriage/Couples

Whether your relationship is on the rocks or rock solid, all couples can benefit from relationship counseling.  Our therapists are here to collaborate with you and your significant other to restore and/or solidify your relationship as you work through some of the following issues:

  • Getting engaged/married for the first time
  • Blending families from a previous marriage
  • Experiencing intimacy issues
  • Experiencing life after children
  • Experiencing life after retirement
  • Contemplating divorce

Play Therapy

If play is a child’s language, then toys are their words. On this premise, play therapy is used to help children express what is troubling them when they have not yet developed the capacity to adequately express themselves verbally. Play Therapy is the use of a child’s most natural language, the language of ‘play’, to help them prevent or resolve emotional, behavioral, and social difficulties in order to reach optimal growth and development.

Psychological Testing & Assessments

Difficulty in school can have a significant impact on a child’s well-being. Parents of children who are struggling academically often need help understanding why their children are having difficulty in school, and what to do about it. The Summit provides comprehensive psycho-educational evaluations for children, adolescents and young adults. Screening assessments for learning and attention problems are also available, to help parents determine whether further testing or another avenue of assessment or intervention is warranted.

School-Based Mental Health

As a parent, you want what is best for your child, but it is not always easy to know what type of support they need.  The Summit has partnered with private schools and public school districts to offer confidential mental health therapy, conveniently located at the school.  Students have the option to see their therapist at school during the day or at one of our offsite locations in the evening or on weekends.  This flexibility allows the therapist to quickly intervene, so children get the help they need to achieve their best at school.
