Kirsten Williams, APC

Kirsten has a passion for celebrating strengths in an individual’s life narrative. While competing at the collegiate level in cross country, she recognized the importance of mental skills for athletes. Alongside the physical training, it was important for an athlete to encourage positive self-talk, mental imagery, realistic goals, and to manage their emotions effectively. Before completing her Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Mercer University, Kirsten gained experience at an adolescent residential, PHP, and IOP program for eating disorders.

Today, Kirsten is an Associate Professional Counselor who specializes in working with adolescents, teens, and young adults experiencing anxiety, trauma, suicidal ideation, eating disorders, depression, and self-esteem/body image. She enjoys providing a safe, creative space that empowers growth and self-awareness. Her goal as a therapist is to create a trusting relationship with her clients and to walk alongside them through their life narrative to help navigate hardships and flourish.

Kirsten practices under the supervision of Paul Smith, Ph.D., LPC, ACS and Lindsey Mart, LPC, CPCS.
