Deborah Midkiff, MS, NCC
In providing psychotherapy since 1994, I have direct experience assisting adults through crisis intervention, life transitions, relationship building, individual and family recovery issues, self-development, and spiritual emergence. I offered seminars, support groups and individual, couple and family therapy in faith-based settings.
Through Community Service Boards, I served both geriatric populations and consumers with severe and persistent mental illness. While serving in non-profit agencies guiding families transitioning out of domestic violence and homelessness, I also taught life skills and emotional management in an alternative high school.
More recently, I provided the Atlanta Women's Support Group for those interested in reciprocating support for each other through life's transitions and celebrations. Currently, in addition to offering psycho-educational seminars and specific skill building workshops, I facilitate support and discussion groups focusing on spiritual integration and personal growth.
My education includes a BA in Psychology from the University of Maryland, an MS in Community Counseling from Georgia State University, and an MS in Christian Psychological Studies from the Psychological Studies Institute (now Richmont Graduate University). I have been credentialed through the National Board for Certified Counselors (35991) since 1994. I am a member of the 2019 cohort for Graduate Certification in Spiritual Direction and Formation through the RGU School of Ministry, with an Internship in Spiritual Direction at The Agape Center for Spiritual Formation.
