Hi, I’m Ginny Kington and I’m a clinical psychologist. I help people who are feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and depressed due to life circumstances. Often these life circumstances include dealing with a chronic illness, adjusting to new parenthood, or coping with a trauma history. I can help you find more balance and peace in your life and help guide you to a place where things feel manageable again.
I often work to support my clients in setting boundaries, learning to say no, and learning how to ask for help to reduce the load they are carrying. This can lead to feeling better emotionally and physically.
Becoming A Therapist
I know as a recovering people pleaser and from being in private practice since 2010 that learning how to set boundaries and ask for help can be the key to a more balanced and satisfying life. I also personally deal with chronic illness (chronic migraines) and dealt with postpartum depression and anxiety when I had my son ten years ago. I know the courage that it takes to show up in therapy and work on addressing these issues, and I also know how helpful therapy can be.
Helping people is an important part of my life, and being a therapist is an honor. I love helping people become 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 empathic, non-judgmental, and an excellent listener who can help people feel heard and understood. This 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 therapeutic 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).
