Gracile Dawes has been working as a professional counselor since 2004.
I bring almost 20 years of experience to my work. I completed my Master’s in Professional Counseling at Richmont Graduate University in 2004 after obtaining a Bachelor in Science in Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts in Religion at Furman University in 2002. I am trained in DBT and EMDR. I have been married since 2003. We have three kids and way too many pets. After stepping back from my career to focus on my family, I opened Alpharetta Counseling in 2018.
If your faith is important to you, we can certainly incorporate that into our therapy. My approach integrates more concrete aspects of cognitive behavior therapy and more abstract and integrative components of faith and mindfulness. Being a person-centered therapist, I know that each of us has the desire and capacity for growth and change and I bring that knowledge to each session.

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
― Brené Brown
