Lindsey Coltraine, Counseling Intern
Master of Family Therapy Candidate, Mercer university
EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE
I knew from an early age that I wanted to study psychology, because I was fascinated with learning about people and how the mind works. I obtained my Bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Georgia.
In my pursuit to find a career where I could express my passion for loving on others, I completed a Master of Science in Nursing degree from Georgia Health Sciences University. I worked for a few years in long-term acute care and then inpatient mental health where I gained great experience working with mental disabilities and substance abuse.
My experience as a nurse was invaluable, but I found that I really enjoyed connecting with people in a way that the duties of a nurse don't allow. I made the decision to go back to school, and I am currently completing my Master of Family Therapy.
I moved to the Atlanta area a few years ago from Macon, GA, where I grew up. I have been married to my wonderful husband since 2012, and we have one son. In my spare time, you will find me spending time with my family and reading anything I can get my hands on. I love trying new foods and traveling. Most of all, my passion is for people. I enjoy meeting new people and supporting them on their journey to bettering themselves.
I receive my primary clinical supervision from several faculty members of Mercer University. Stephanie Cook, LCSW, owner of Counseling ATL, LLC, also provides me with mentoring and supervision on site.
who I work with
I enjoy providing specialized counseling services to clients of all ages and backgrounds, including adults, teens, families, and couples. I have completed specialized training in the Gottman Method Couples Therapy through the Gottman Institute (levels 1 and 2).
I enjoy working with clients of all ages and stages of life. I know how difficult it can be to talk to a stranger about problems in your life, so I really focus on building a strong relationship with my clients. When I work with couples, I use the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy. When I work with individual clients, I use an Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach to help my clients gain insight into the meaning behind your thoughts and emotions. I don’t think change happens immediately, but I would like to help you on your journey.
I am available on convenient daytime, evening and weekend hours: Fridays and Saturdays.
