ABOUT CHADE WALKER

Chade Walker, LMSW

I have always been passionate about supporting and helping people. I was able to make this passion a reality when I decided to become a social worker. One of my very first experiences was working for a non-profit that supported homeless teen moms and young women as they regained their independence. In subsequent years since that experience, I have had the opportunity to work with women leaving the criminal justice system, gang-affiliated youth, adults and children with various mental health disorders, and adult patients with end-stage renal disease. My journey has taken me from non-profits and social justice organizations in New York to community mental health clinics and dialysis centers here in GA. Through everything I have experienced, the one thing that always stands out to me the most is the power of human resilience.

Simply put I believe in you.

That is the basis of my work and that is the major motivator when I work with clients. My goal is to empower people to believe in themselves and prioritize their own well-being. I do this in a number of ways which may include using strengths-based techniques, cognitive-behavioral informed talk therapy, and DBT informed skill-building. I recognize every person is different and that’s why it is also important in my work to find what works for each individual client and take a holistic approach to their treatment. Healing is not just about your mind and it is not “one-size fits all”. I believe healing includes the physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and environmental aspects of a person. So if you are ready to empower yourself, believe in yourself, and start your healing journey, reach out. I look forward to getting to know you and to supporting you.
