Respect for your S.M.I.L.E.
Hope Williams, LPC
When life happens, it can be difficult to adapt and respond.
Hope Williams, founder of S.M.I.L.E. Project Support Services, LLC, offers peace and clarity as her clients navigate through these difficult, and sometimes uncertain, experiences.
A graduate of Mercer University’s Penfield College, Hope is credentialed as a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia and dedicated to using her education and skills to help children, adolescents, and their families manage unique situations and identify healthy solutions. She has always had a heart for children, but truly discovered her passion while working at a residential psychiatric facility for children and adolescents in Atlanta, GA. She finds the opportunity to help children better understand themselves, and their behaviors, rewarding and believes helping children and their parent(s) understand each other is imperative to enhancing relationships at home and decreasing the display of problematic behaviors.
She has served clients in a variety of settings, to include: private practice, school and community groups, acute and residential psychiatric facilities, and as a CORE services in-home provider. This has afforded her 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.
Hope’s educational background includes a Master’s degree in Clinical/Mental Health Counseling from Mercer University and a Bachelor's of Business Administration in Marketing from Georgia Southern University. She is credentialed as an LPC, NCC, and EAS-C and, in an out-patient setting, offers individual, family, and group counseling.
