I am Cecile Dunkley Layne and I work at Tiny Planet Counseling. I have worked in mental health and drug addiction for over 16 years. I have also worked with the Georgia Department of Corrections and encountered individuals that struggle with incarceration, mental illness, and drug addiction. This has propelled me to be more involved in consciously making a difference in the helping arena. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and I hold a Master of Art degree in counseling from Liberty University and a Bachelor of Art degree in Business Administration. I am a National Certified Counselor and a Medication Assisted Specialist.
Entering into a counseling relationship is an important decision and should not be taken lightly. I believe in providing a very warm, supportive, and relaxed environment for my clients. My approach to therapy is eclectic, which is tailored to meet each client’s goals, needs, beliefs, cultural and personality style.
I believe in using humor, spirituality, relaxation training, and mindfulness techniques to help and empower clients as we work together to reach their goals. When you sit in for a session with me, you will receive respect, concern, and laughter, as we tackle the issues life has thrown at you. Come in and get comfortable.
