ALEXIS WILLIAMS, LAPC

Therapist

Hello! I’m Alexis Williams and I am a Licensed Associate Professional Counselor (LAPC) and a Certified Clinical Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC). I hold a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Digital Sports Production and Sociology from Ball State University. As well as my Masters of Arts degree in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling from Mercer University. I have extensive experience working with children, adolescents, and their families in a variety of in-patient and out-patient settings.
I specialize in children, teens, and young adults who experience anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, disordered eating, struggles with transitions, sports performance, anger management, friendship/social struggles, and career difficulties. I also specialize in working with children, teens, and adults who have physical disabilities. I believe in using art in the therapeutic space as a way for self-expression, to communicate and process difficult emotions and life circumstances. In addition to supporting children and teens, I strive to foster communication among the entire family. I provide support and skills to parents to aid in the healthy functioning of their family and truly value helping parents improve their relationship with their child or teen.
I strive to create a nurturing space where my clients feel comfortable being their authentic selves. I do this through CBT-focused and mindfulness-based techniques to support individuals to better achieve their goals and encourage individuals to recognize how their own thinking affects their mood, relationships with others, and behaviors.
Outside of the office I can be found coaching CrossFit and spending time doing anything outside with my rescue dog Jack and my Fiance. I have a huge passion for any and all things that have to do with sports, especially football. I have been lucky enough to work numerous Super Bowls and National Championships.

ANNA JIN

Graduate Student Intern

Hi, I’m Anna! I have lived in Georgia for most of my life and attended the University of
Georgia (Go Dawgs) where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology in 2020. I am
currently pursuing a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Mercer
University. For the past few months, I have gained experience working with adolescents in
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills classes that focus on emotion regulation. In my free
time, I am a total foodie and enjoy spending time with my friends, family, and adorable pup
Ellie.
Under the supervision of Sarah Azotea (LCSW), my goal is to help children, teens, and
young adults overcome anxiety, depression, transitional stress, disordered eating, low self-
esteem, and relationship issues. I believe in being a sounding board for my clients and working
together to foster an environment that is empowering, warm, and safe.
Everyone has been on their own unique path in life and counseling should reflect it. My
counseling method utilizes an integrative approach that primarily pulls from Cognitive
Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Together, we can find and work upon your personal strengths,
practice mindfulness, develop healthy coping mechanisms, and strengthen relationships.
I cannot wait to walk alongside you on this journey!
