Paulette Kennedy, MS, APC

Associate Professional Counselor

Buford, Teletherapy

I am an Associate Licensed Professional Counselor with LPC licensure expected in Summer 2021. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of North Georgia where I graduated Magna Cum Laude. I also hold a Master of Science degree in Clinical Counseling Psychology with a dual specialization in Psychometrics and Research Methods Education from Brenau University where I was awarded the Ali McNichols Outstanding Graduate Student Award and inducted into the exclusive Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society. In addition, I am a part-time Faculty member in the Department of Psychological Science at the University of North Georgia and a member of the Psi Chi National Honor Society, the Licensed Professional Counselors (LPCA) of Georgia, the American Counseling Association (ACA), and the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ISTSS).

I understand that life can feel uncertain and overwhelming and it is my hope that you will find support through counseling. With years of experience working with teens and adults who have struggled with self-esteem, anxiety, depression, and PTSD, I work hard to create a safe space for you to feel comfortable as you navigate your concerns. Each client's treatment is tailored to their specific needs using a variety of trauma-focused, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness-based techniques. As you begin your healing journey, you can rest assured that you will be in a confidential, non-judgmental, and allied environment.

 

At the initial session, you can expect to spend approximately 90 minutes with me as we discuss your concerns and I gather background information to help me better understand your needs. During this time, we will also discuss my initial assessment and how we might proceed with therapeutic treatment.

 

I currently offer appointments on Mondays & Wednesdays 9:00am – 7:00pm, and Fridays 9:00am – 3:00pm at our Buford location. Teletherapy is available upon request.

 

I do not file insurance at this time. My private pay fees are:

$120 for initial intake appointment (individuals)

$90 for subsequent sessions (individuals)
