Stephen Walters | Johns Creek, Dunwoody, Milton, Cumming

Staff Associate Therapist

Stephen believes that everyone can make a difference in this world, but sometimes life and personal struggles can prevent people from doing it. Stephen wants to work with clients who are struggling to bring change to the world because something in their life is holding them back: trauma, anxiety, depression, spiritual issues, or future concerns. In addition, he works with couples before and during marriage to help make relationships strong.

In his work with adolescents, adults, and couples, Stephen specializes in trauma counseling, anxiety disorders, depression, spiritual integration, future and career discernment, premarital concerns, and marriage counseling. He also has experience in adoption-based concerns. Stephen utilizes a variety of interventions such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) with an interpersonal style.

In addition to his clinical work, Stephen is an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church with local church experience since 2000.
