Meet hope

​When life happens, it can be difficult to adapt and respond.

Hope Williams, founder of SMILE Project, offers peace and clarity as her clients navigate through these difficult, and sometimes uncertain, experiences.

 

A graduate of Mercer University’s Penfield College and Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia, Hope is dedicated to using her education and skills to help clients manage unique situations and identify healthy solutions.  She is rewarded by the opportunity to help clients better understand themselves and their behaviors.  When working with children, Hope believes helping the child and their parent(s) understand each other is imperative to enhancing relationships and decreasing the display of problematic behaviors.

Serving clients in a variety of settings has afforded Hope the opportunity to broaden the view of her therapeutic lens. Using a combination of play therapy, client-centered therapy, as well as dialectical and cognitive behavioral interventions, she works to assist clients in reaching their therapeutic goals.
