Sunny Volano, LPC, CPCS
About Sunny Volano
I grew up in Georgia and have made it home for me and my family. I struggled with anxiety as a teen and I did not know how to handle it. I battled decisions and never felt like I was really living my life because I was so worried about everything all the time. I became a counselor so I could help people get through those difficult times. I’ve been there and know how debilitating it can be. My parents did not have the tools to know what to do back then, but times have changed and counseling is widely accepted and encouraged amongst all generations.
I went to UGA and have been counseling children, teens and adults in both Athens and Atlanta for the past 9 years. I use different types of cognitive behavioral therapy and integrative measures such as mindfulness, nutrition, and education to help people regulate intense emotions. I really think outside the typical therapy box to Meet you where you are.
