Georgia Black, LPC, ATR
- Child and Family Therapist, Children's Wisconsin
As a Licensed Professional Counselor and Art Therapist, I practice from a trauma-informed, person-centered perspective, utilizing attachment theory and mindfulness practices. I believe that art therapy can help people to enter the present, regulate, address their mind-body connection, and process both memories and current issues.
I take a compassionate approach to a the healing relationship with the families and individuals I work with. Each person has a unique journey and individual needs – I aim to be responsive, kind, and realistic in helping the people I work with create a holistic plan to live full lives. My goal is to help kids and families navigate life’s transitions, develop healthy relationships and choices, cope with stressors, and move through life with awareness, meaning, peace, and hope. I feel privileged to witness the lives of those I work with and to share in their moments of courage and strength.
I have special interest in working with trauma, and am both TF-CBT (Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) trained.
I am supportive of the LGBTQIA+ community and strive to demonstrate cultural humility in working with all families.
I also believe that faith and spirituality can be rich resources that can be a vital part of healing. If you believe this plays an important role in the healing process for you, I will work with you in determining how to prioritize this component of your life.
