Hailey Whitley is a Licensed Professional Counselor located in Alpharetta, Georgia. She specializes in working with individual adults and teens struggling to navigate anxiety, depression, life transitions, feeling stuck, relationship issues, self-worth, body image, sexual and gender identity issues, trauma and spirituality.

Hailey’s approach to counseling is very collaborative. She works with clients to identify goals best suited to their needs. Hailey utilizes CBT, DBT, EMDR, Person-Centered and Family Systems to help achieve these goals. Hailey desires for her work with clients in session to create a foundation clients can build upon outside of session, empowering them to create change towards a life filled with joy, peace, confidence and stability.

Hailey received her Bachelors in Psychology from Georgia State University and her Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Richmont Graduate University. She interned and worked at a Marriage and Family Therapy practice and utilizes the skills developed from her time working with couples and families into her work with individuals. She has received her basic training certificate in EMDR. Hailey is also a certified Prepare/Enrich facilitator.

Hailey meets with clients in-person at her Alpharetta office as well as online. She supports whichever modality works best for each client. If you have any questions or concerns related to the counseling process, please feel free to contact Hailey directly. She offers a free 15-minute phone consultation to help assess whether she would be the best fit for what you hope to gain through counseling at this time. She looks forward to hearing from you!


Message to clients

Life can be challenging, messy and painful. Life can also be exciting, joyful and healing. No matter where you are in life, the journey of life is always changing. Whichever type of change you believe is best for you, I do believe that change is best accomplished with others, in collaboration, not in isolation. I feel privileged to walk alongside individuals navigating the inevitable difficulties of life. My goal is to provide you with a safe space in which to sort through these difficulties, while working toward mutually agreed upon goals.

During our first session together, I will invite you to share only as much information as you feel comfortable sharing. You determine the speed at which we work based on your level of comfort. I trust the counseling process, including however your process needs to look, for you to find the same healing myself and others have found through counseling.

Regardless of that process, my role remains the same. I serve as a guide to help lead you toward healing using methods most suited to your needs. I am your advocate who will affirm you and your experience while also providing some tough love along the way, but with an unconditionally accepting stance, I trust we can accomplish a lot together.
