George Atkins, MSEd, LPC
For the first 20 years of my career I served in congregational ministry as a pastor. It was within this environment where I felt that my primary skills of counseling would be best utilized in the public arena. While completing my Masters of Education in both Clinical Mental Health and School Counseling I fulfilled my internship requirement here at Alta. My experience here was so rewarding that I began working here immediately after graduation. My primary approach to counseling is from a Cognitive Behavioral and Brief Solution Focused framework. I am currently pursuing specialization in working with clients who have experienced trauma or those living within the Autism Spectrum. During the summer you can find me working with our clients at Camp Challenge. I will also be participating in our Adventure Therapy Group. When not serving our clients you can find me running trails, looking at my fish tank, or practicing guitar.
