About Me

Thank you for visiting my page today. I hope that I can join you on your journey toward healing and accessing more joy in life. Sometimes we need extra support on our journey, and that's okay. It's okay to be exactly where you are right now, but also to need additional support. I commend you for being brave enough to reach this point.

Now, let's see if I'm a good fit to make this journey with you :)

My name is Teddi Shriner, and I am a 35 year-old female therapist in Athens, Georgia. I have been a counselor for nine years. I attended the University of Georgia in Athens, GA, for my undergraduate and graduate degrees. My undergraduate degree is in Early Childhood Education and my graduate degree is in Professional Counseling. I also have my Specialist's Degree in School Counseling from Valdosta State University. I have worked in both school, private practice and community counseling settings. I love working with kids 10+, including tween and teens and college-aged adults with school issues, self-esteem, trauma, anxiety, depression and life transitions.

My hobbies include running, hiking, traveling, baking, playing basketball, playing with my dog, spending time with my husband, step-daughters and family, and thrift shopping. I grew up in Rome, GA, and then moved to Athens, GA, for college. After college, I did a lot of soul-searching, as I felt lost on my life/career path, and found that teaching was not my forever career. Ironically, I fell in love with counseling during my student teaching when a student's mother passed away, and I became close to this student as he endured wrenching grief and worked to adjust to a new family situation and school. I knew then that my heart belonged in counseling.

You will find that I am an empathetic, motivating and creative therapist who utilizes various therapeutic approaches (such as CBT, DBT and Existential Therapy) in an eclectic and supportive manner tailored for your needs.

Mrs. Shriner is a great therapist! She listens and offers great advice for myself as a parent and my son as a teen! We are thankful for her and the advice and counsel she offers!
