Katy Bailey holds a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Georgia Southern University. Katy has worked in a variety of roles in counseling, therapy and community outreach since receiving her degree in 2005. Her passion for mental health care started as an adolescent and young adult, witnessing close friends struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, and at times, needing crisis care. She believes in starting with the basics; utilizing simple tools and coping techniques, and building on these to find what works for you. Katy often utilizes deep breathing, visualization, re-framing and challenging negative self-talk while working through processing difficult memories, experiences and feelings. She knows first-hand how scary it can be to reach out, but also knows how empowering it can be to take that first step to change your life.
Confronting our feelings and giving them appropriate expression always takes strength, not weakness. - Fred Rogers
