Hi, I’m Dr. Ginny Kington (she/her). I’m a clinical psychologist who works with adults and couples going through life changing events. My goal is to help you stop feeling overwhelmed and to decrease the negative emotions you are experiencing. I want to help guide you to a place where things feel manageable again. Out of the specialty areas listed on our website, I specialize in working with people experiencing trauma, depression, anxiety, chronic illness, and postpartum depression and anxiety.
Becoming A Therapist
I’m no different from the clients I see. Like everyone else, I’m human. I’ve been through both wonderful and difficult experiences that have shaped who I am and how I help.
I have personally experienced the value of therapy throughout my life. I struggled with the adjustment to parenthood when my son was born in 2011 and I have also battled chronic illness since 2016. Therapy has been invaluable in helping me cope with these issues, and in helping me to become a better therapist myself.
Helping people is an important part of my life, and being a therapist is an honor. I love helping people become healthier and more empowered, and witnessing them achieve more fulfilling lives. The most rewarding thing about being a therapist is knowing that I had a part in helping someone else transform their life.
What It’s Like To Work With Me
People who know me often say that I am a good listener who can help people feel heard and understood. This often helps people feel seen and start to heal.
I have the ability to:
- Help people feel comfortable.
- Help people identify what they are feeling and thinking, along with the behavioral patterns they are engaging in.
- Collaborate with people to set goals and help them reach them.
- Help clients heal their past and manage their present.
Our Sessions Are Focused On You
It’s important to me to provide a non-judgmental space where you can be yourself and to ensure that the process is collaborative. There isn’t a “one size fits all” approach to therapy. Our sessions will fit your specific needs and concerns. Sessions will provide you with the space to explore your thoughts, feelings, and goals.
I believe that even if we feel like we’ve lost hope, it’s possible to show up, commit to ourselves, and do what it takes to start feeling better.
My Professional Background
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from The Ohio State University in 2002. I then received my Master’s degree (M.A.) in Clinical Psychology in 2005 and my Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.) in 2009 from the Georgia School of Professional Psychology. After graduating, I completed my postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Georgia’s Counseling and Psychiatric Services. In 2020, I earned my certification in perinatal mental health (PMH-C). I am licensed as a psychologist in the state of Georgia (license number PSY003389).
