Kendal Gerold, LPC, NCC, CAADC

Hello! Thank you for stopping by to learn more about me and to see how I can help. I founded Wellness & Recovery Counseling, LLC because I strongly believe in resilience and helping individuals who are searching for something greater in their lives. I understand that while life can be filled with joy, hope, and confidence, it can also feel difficult in many ways at times. I offer online counseling because I want to provide support, understanding, and guidance to those in need of healing or growth.

A little background on me...

I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC009185) and national certified counselor (NCC) who specializes in working with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, stress, overwhelming emotions, relationship concerns, substance use, and disordered eating. I have an extensive background in working with addiction as well and am a certified advanced alcohol and drug counselor (CAADC) in the state of Georgia.

My therapeutic approach is based on using evidenced based cognitive and behavioral techniques from both cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) to explore how thoughts, feelings, and beliefs influence our behaviors. I also incorporate solution-focused brief therapy, reality therapy, and Motivational Interviewing methods into my counseling sessions.

I am passionate about teaching coping skills to clients aimed at improving communication skills, managing stress, and regulating emotions in order to gain a healthier outlook on their current state and to promote confidence in their ability to live a healthier and happier life.

A little more about me...

In my free time, I enjoy playing tennis, hiking, traveling, and listening to music. I am married and reside with my family in Atlanta, Georgia.
