“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” – Viktor Frankl

Cally joined Summit in 2019 and primarily serves adolescents, teens, and young adults. Her areas of competency include depression, anxiety, self-esteem, and childhood trauma. She enjoys providing school based mental health and has experienced working with survivors of sexual abuse.

Cally believes humans are holistic beings with physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. She utilizes an integrative therapeutic approach with a focus on cognitive therapies and interventions to empower those who are facing challenges in these areas. She aims to work collaboratively with individuals in order to facilitate the development of coping skills and healthy thought processes that will continue through the lifetime. Cally believes change starts from within and works to empower the individuals she serves to begin taking steps to create the change they wish to see for themselves.

Cally earned her M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of North Georgia, and her B.A. in Psychology from Armstrong Atlantic State University. She is a licensed associate professional counselor.

Prior to The Summit, Cally worked at a community service board where she provided school based mental health to children ages 12-18, as well as outpatient services to adults. She also has experience working for a non-profit agency serving sexual abuse survivors of all ages, where she implemented trauma focused interventions.

In her free time, Cally enjoys traveling, hiking, listening to music, and shopping for records to add to her record collection.
