Georgia King, LCSW

Georgia is one of the leading therapists providing evaluations for immigration cases in the United States. Over the past decade, she has provided assessments for hundreds of immigrants from around the world with an exceptionally high success rate. She regularly appears in court as an expert witness and has been a guest speaker at Georgetown Law School, the Smith College School for Social Work, numerous chapters of NASW, and the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists. In 2017, she founded The Immigration Evaluation Training Center, the first training center of its kind, and she has had the opportunity to teach hundreds of therapists around the country how to provide expert evaluations and build thriving practices.

A graduate of the Smith College School for Social Work, Ms. King worked for years as a therapist in  community mental health and then at Walter Reed military base with active-duty soldiers. After a lawyer asked her to conduct an assessment for an immigration case, she discovered her passion for advocating for immigrants. She approaches the work with a commitment to social and racial justice. As someone with unearned privilege, she intentionally applies that privilege to help bring more justice to the world and to support other therapists in doing the same.

Georgia also provides individual therapy to clients in Los Angeles, as well as throughout California and Maryland over Skype. Find out more about her therapy practice at: www.GeorgiaKingTherapy.com
