My Story

Dr. Aurelie Weinstein holds a Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology and is a Licensed Professional Counselor. As a child and family therapist, Dr. Weinstein is passionate about helping children and parents work through challenging life circumstances, including serious illness, anxiety, traumas, phobias, self-esteem issues, social and behavioral difficulties, ADHD, depression, divorce-related issues, and school problems.

Dr. Weinstein is also an author of children's books. She seeks to inspire children to use positive coping strategies by modeling behaviors through relatable characters in her books. Her stories are based on her own personal experience from working with many children through the years, making her stories realistic and approachable. Dr. Weinstein brings both fantasy and make-believe into her stories to match the child’s inner world and mind.

In addition to her clinical practice, Dr. Weinstein is also an Assistant Professor (part-time) at Kennesaw State University, Department of Psychological Science, teaching typical and atypical child development courses. She has taught full time at both Georgia State University and Georgia Gwinnett College for undergraduate and graduate students in the Psychology and Counseling departments. Dr. Weinstein is also a researcher in resilience in children. She has ongoing research collaborations including with St. Jude Research Hospital to improve life satisfaction and post traumatic growth for childhood cancer survivors, and with Georgia State University researchers to improve coping skills of children suffering from school bullying. Her published research has been awarded by St Jude Research Hospital and is cited on their website (Most childhood cancer survivors report that they are highly satisfied with life).

She is a member of the American Psychology Association, the Licensed Professional Counseling Association of Georgia, the Play Therapy Association, and the Georgia Association for Play Therapy.
