Chanel Atkinson, LPC-I 

BasePoint Therapist


Personal Statement

I am a firm believer of meeting people where they are in life. My therapeutic process focuses on working collaboratively to address issues and find solutions that work best for the individual. My goal is to establish a safe relationship, instill hope,  and empower individuals by emphasizing the power of doing what is in their control.

I earned my undergraduate degree from the University of North Texas and later earned my Master's in counseling from Southern Methodist University.  In my previous work at a private practice, I worked with adults, adolescents, families, groups, and couples. I also have worked with those in the LGBTQ+ community and those struggling with chemical dependencies. Aside from clinical experience, I have also spent the last few years as an ABA therapist providing services to children and adults who fall on the spectrum.


In my free time I enjoy a casual binge of Netflix, playing with my dogs and trying out new restaurants because I like an excuse to eat!
