Karen Poynor, LPC, NCC, RPT (She/Her)

Accepting Clients

In 2004, I embarked on a transformative path by delving into play therapy. Today, I proudly hold mastery as a Registered Play Therapy.

Licensed Professional Counselor in Tucker, GA

About My Clients

I see children ages 3-11 for play therapy with a wide variety of diagnoses that includes Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anxiety Disorders, Adjustment Disorders, and Grief and Loss. I also see children struggling academically socially or with behavioral disruptions.

My Background and Approach

I earned my undergraduate degree, Bachelors in Psychology, graduating Summa Cum Laude, at Nyack College in Nyack, New York. I went on to earn my Masters in Professional Counseling at Georgia State University in 2001. I have worked with families in crisis and completed intensive clinical reports, helping the Department of Family and Children Services with high-risk children that have been placed in foster care. In 2004, I began doing play therapy with young children under the supervision of a renowned Registered Play Therapy Supervisor and have treated children since 2004 as a Registered Play Therapist (RPT).

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that children know what they need to work on and that their play will take them to where they need to go for healing.
