Dr. Franciska Kocsner, Psy.D.

About Our Doctor

 

I am a Clinical Psychologist and I was born in Hungary. After overcoming many language and cultural barriers I earned an Associates Degree from Chattahoochee Valley Community College. After the completion of my Bachelor's of Science Degree from Columbus State University I went on to earn my Master's and Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from Argosy University in Atlanta, Georgia. The diagnosis and treatment of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders is not only my professional passion, but a personal one as well.

My oldest son was diagnosed with ASD and I have first-hand insight into the methods and techniques used to improve social skills and functioning in children with various developmental disorders. I am the proud owner of The Brain Center where I provide outpatient psychological services that include assessments and social skills group. I have been in private practice for 10 years.

Myself and four other psychologists were chosen by Emory University to collaborate and lead the state of Georgia towards early identification of Autism Spectrum Disorder. As part of this honor, The Brain Center will soon become a certified Autism Specialty Clinic for the Southwest region of Georgia.
