About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Georgia with over 30 years of working with children, adolescents, and adults with Serious Mental Health problems, Behavioral Health issues, co-occurring disorders(Mental health and substance use disorders).
My Counseling style is empathetic listening, client center, and inspiring the motivation for positive change. My approach to therapy involves Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, and other clinical modalities deemed best practices and with shown positive effects on the individual in treatment.

Willie is the man! I am in a way better place now than I was back when I started therapy with teen counseling in October—and I have him to thank for that! 100/10, recommended ;)!

Willie is a wonderful listener and can gather discussion points for you after just a few sessions. He asks questions which are helpful to see problems through a different (and often more productive) lens.

Written by J.E. on Nov 15, 2021 after therapy with Willie for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, career difficulties, and compassion fatigue

The last two years have taken its toll on healthcare workers, especially nurses. My combined professional challenges, history of trauma, personal challenges, and social isolation led me to a dark place. I felt quite scared that I was losing myself and teen counseling was at my fingertips. I was connected with Willie Whited who literally saved my life. He empowered me to learn strategies to overcome triggers, manage anxiety and depression, and most importantly, self compassion and love. Willie is an amazing man and therapist who truly listens and empowered me to find my best version of myself while learning strategies to tackle life’s problems, big and small. Willie truly saved my life and helped me reconnect with my purpose. I believe his impact will last a lifetime; I am grateful for his thoughtful listening, kindness, compassion, and even a little humor. I appreciated his honesty and keen observations, it’s refreshing to have such a warm and compassionate therapist.

Mr. Whited has been excellent. I am hesitant by nature to trust in counseling. However Mr. Whited has been very helpful in settling me down so I can avoid full on crisis. My trajectory has immediately changed for the better.
