About Joanna Babinska
My name is Joanna Babinska, MS, LPC, RPT. I am an Atlanta based counselor providing psychotherapy and counseling for individuals and families. I specialize in therapy for children, adolescents, adults and families.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Registered Play Therapist (RPT). I have extensive training in Play and Filial Therapy gained at Georgia State University, where I received a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
I have professional field experience working with children, teens, and adults in mental health agencies, residential facilities, orphanages, and intervention programs in Atlanta.
I am a member of the Association for Play Therapy, American Counseling Association, Licensed Professional Counselors Association of Georgia, and Jung Society of Atlanta.
If you are concerned about your child and not sure whether they need child therapist, email or call me for a free consultation. My therapeutic approach is effective working with a wide range of conditions including depression, anger outbursts, anxiety, temper tantrums, low self esteem, low grades, academic underachievement, and many other issues.
In the climate of the playroom, with my support, your child will have an opportunity to begin the search of self and discover the ability to cope with fears, struggles, uncertainties and changes in a meaningful way in order to thrive.
I engage parents/caregivers in the therapy, because their insight and commitment are extremely critical to the success of the process. After all, they are the experts on their families.
Also, in my work with adults I believe in the creative and healing potential within each of us and trust that accepting and honest relationship between you and me will help you overcome your life challenges and empower you to live authentically. I am especially sensitive to adaptation issues originating from cultural differences, gender roles, sexual identity and other dissimilarities from mainstream culture.
I offer ethical and HIPAA complaint distance counseling to clients via video or phone conferencing.
