Therapist in Athens, Georgia Jim Synan, LPC

Jim Synan, LPC

Jim is a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in the state of Georgia. He earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Social Science Education, a Master’s Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling, and a Specialist Degree in Professional School Counseling, all from the University of Georgia. He has also completed the necessary coursework to become a BCBA (board certified behavior analyst), and is completing his supervision hours as part of the certification process. Jim has experience in the K-12 field of public education, post-secondary education, as well as the field of mental health. His work consists of working with children, adolescents, adults, and families, primarily in school settings. Jim believes therapy is often sought when a person begins having irrational thoughts and starts a downward spiral of negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. His desire is to help build a trusting, professional environment in which the person begins to gain another perspective, and to realize they are beginning a pattern of self-destructive thinking. Jim’s theoretical orientation includes person-centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma-informed care/therapy, and solution-focused therapy.
