Ali Dixon, MS, LPC, NCC

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor specializing in trauma and PTSD, anxiety, stress, life transitions, family of origin issues, and relationship concerns. I utilize a person-centered and trauma-focused approach incorporating EMDR, Internal Family Systems (IFS), CBT, mindfulness, and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), in addition to a variety of evidence based techniques. At the basis of my therapeutic approach is the belief that we are all resilient – innately able to become happy and successful again after distressing things happen.

I am deeply passionate about helping people who have experienced difficult life events find balance, meaning, and joy. Throughout life, many people arrive at a place of feeling stuck or overwhelmed. It is in these moments that we often ask ourselves, how did I get here and where do I go now?

My aim is to help clients answer these questions by assisting them in creating a deeper awareness of whom they have been and whom they want to be going forward.  By exploring the areas most important to my clients, I draw upon their strengths to provide them with tools and skills that relieve distress and foster a balanced life. This foundation allows us to safely address underlying causes of distress and promote healing from impactful life experiences. Through this approach, clients walk away with increased self-awareness, self-care skills, and life satisfaction

My prior experience includes working with adults in a private practice setting in Atlanta as well as leading coping skills groups throughout the Greater New Orleans area in the years following Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill. I hold a Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling from Georgia State University and Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Tulane University.

I would be honored to support you as you take the next step towards wellness!
