Hello, I'm Amanda Baskin
I love working with children, adolescents, adults, and families in therapy. I aim to encourage and empower each and every one of my clients to achieve their goals. I advocate for therapy being a collaborative effort between the therapist and client, regardless of the client’s age.
I received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology at Georgia College and State University. I then obtained a Masters in Social Work and a Marriage and Family Therapy Certificate from the University of Georgia. I am a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) in the state of Georgia. I am currently under supervision as I work toward becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I have worked with clients in a variety of outpatient settings, including providing individual, group, and family therapies.
In my practice, I apply a strengths-based approach for all my clients, as I have found that each client I have worked with has more to offer than they realize. I apply a variety of therapeutic techniques, such as Play Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychoeducation, and Solution-Focused Therapy. In the past, I also provided social skills-based therapy for children and adolescents.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Hollins College in Roanoke, Virginia, in 1988, and obtained a Master of Arts in Community Counseling from The University of Maryland in 1990. Over the past 30 years, I have worked in inpatient and outpatient settings, providing individual and group therapy to my clients. I have also been involved in the management of several inpatient facilities in both Arizona and in Georgia. I created and launched an outpatient program specifically meeting the needs of those of those suffering from substance abuse, eating disorders, and autism spectrum.
In addition to seeing clients, I also offer supervision to new counselors. I have my CPCS and can offer clinical supervision to those working towards their hours for licensure in Georgia.

Hello, I'm Whitney Owens
I enjoy working with both adults and adolescents on an individual basis. I have experience working with those suffering from depression, anxiety, self-harming behaviors, identity formation, relational issues, and other mood disorders. I use a variety of therapeutic models such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Interpersonal Therapy.
I have been seeing clients since 2009 in a variety of settings.

In 2014 I moved back to Savannah and started Water's Edge Counseling. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia and a member of the American Counseling Association and the Licensed Professional Counseling Association of Georgia.
In addition to counseling, I also offer a number of other services including trainings and speaking engagements.
