Meet Georgia

Georgia Denny, LMSW facilitates our elementary and middle school Friendship Circle and GirlTalk Therapy groups and approaches her work with a systemic lens, understanding that individuals are shaped by families, peers, school environments, and communities. Prior to joining GT Therapy Group, she was a Lower School Counselor at Trinity Episcopal School. As the first Lower School Counselor at the school, Georgia developed and implemented the counseling and social/emotional program for the Lower School.

Georgia has a deep interest in social and emotional learning, believing that emotional intelligence helps us grow into the best students, individuals, partners, colleagues, and caregivers that we can be. While at Trinity, she met with students and families, created and delivered curriculum in the classroom, facilitated group sessions, organized parent education, and collaborated with faculty regarding student and family needs. Georgia loves working with groups, knowing that so much work and growth (right alongside fun!) can happen through learning from the experiences of others. Georgia helps people find success through empowering individuals to use new tools as they face challenges, both small and large.

Georgia’s education includes a Bachelor of Business in Marketing and a Master of Science in Social Work, both from the University of Texas at Austin. In addition to school counseling, she has worked in technology, medical social work, and special projects at the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation. After growing up in Houston, attending school at UT, and a few years on the West Coast, Georgia loves calling Austin home and raising her two little girls in this special town.

Georgia currently only facilitates therapy groups and is not available for individual or family therapy. If you join one of Georgia's groups, she can work with you to find a great fit for individual and family therapy right here at GT Therapy Group.
