Annette Hodgson, LCSW

Hello, I am Annette Hodgson, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW. I have a general practice and I like to work with children, teenagers, adults, couples and families. I started practicing therapy in 2000. Prior to joining the East Cobb Center for Therapy in 2009, I worked for two years at Kennesaw Psychological Services.

My experience before private practice focused on working with children and families at two community based agencies. I have particular interest in women's issues and post partum depression, anxiety, depression, play therapy, family therapy, insight-based individual counseling and strengths-based marriage counseling.

My philosophy when working with children is to teach them (and their parents) tools to help them better cope with life stressors and to use different play therapy techniques to educate. With teenage clients--the key is in the relationship and trust and helping them "bridge the gap" when it comes to explaining how they feel to their parents. And when I see adult clients, my goal is to meet them where they are and help them find greater understanding.
