Cecil Walker, MFT
With a focus on hope and the future, I aim to collaborate with clients in separating them from their difficulties so that they might realize their goals. I enjoy working with adolescents, young adults, and families struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, stress, life transitions, and interpersonal difficulty. My approach is systemic and solution-focused, emphasizing where it is clients are hoping to go in moving forward rather than the afflictions that have troubled them in the past, all while highlighting strengths and resources along the way.
I earned my Master’s Degree in Family Therapy from Mercer University School of Medicine immediately after finishing my Bachelor’s at Emory University where I double-majored in Psychology and Music. I’ve spent a handful of years performing and teaching and came to find the same joy in connecting with clients as I have in indulging in music. I completed my clinical internship with Atlanta Medical Center and had the pleasure of working with diverse populations coping with a variety of health and personal issues. I also have devoted a considerable amount of time to research, working on projects ranging in focus from language components in therapy to determinants of Borderline Personality Disorder. Across the wide scope of my experience, my consistent hope has been to enrich the everyday lives of people so that they might find themselves living and feeling exactly as they would prefer to live and feel. I see Individual, Couples and Families under the direction of Meg McLeroy, LMFT and supervision of Joel Baker, LMFT.
