Hello, I am Shari. Are you looking for someone you can feel safe to address your needs and not feel judged? Are you looking for someone authentic and supportive? Are you having difficulty finding someone who will be honest and direct? I work well with anyone who is motivated to start addressing their concerns right away. I believe finding the right therapist can be challenging, but it should not be a barrier to getting help. Finding a therapist should feel comfortable and natural. I am told I have a way of helping people feel as if they have known me before. I like to get an understanding of the source of your problem. Then together we explore how the source influences your thinking. People live life through their experiences which do not always serve us very well in today's time. I also believe in working from a holistic approach. Did you know our daily routines can prolong your recovery or cause mental instability? I have experienced being in a therapeutic relationship and believe in normalizing the need to get help in this way.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have been counseling clients dealing with a variety of mental, emotional, and relational issues for over 16 years. I have counseled adolescents, adults, families, couples and groups. I decided to pursue a doctorate in Marriage and Family Therapy because I realized the impact that our families, and society as well, have on our mental and emotional development. The impacts of these are both positive and negative and may manifest as depression, anxiety, grief, low self-esteem, a lack of a sense of self and other mental and emotional disorders. In counseling, I help clients explore those influences and the impact on their life. My specialties then center around helping clients gain insight into those influences, become more empowered, develop a stronger sense of self, and take steps to become who they really are; thereby addressing mental and emotional health issues. It's important to note that many times, experiences unfortunately include trauma and loss. It may be childhood or other trauma. Identifying, acknowledging and processing trauma and loss is therefore often a part of the process of becoming more empowered and developing that strong sense of self described above. .

I have an immense passion for children and families. Upon graduating from high school I attended the University of Georgia and in 2001 graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in psychology. I obtained my Master’s degree in counseling psychology from the University of West Alabama in 2007 and later completed an add-on certificate in School Guidance Counseling through the University of West Alabama as well. Before becoming a therapist I spent 8 years working in the field of education where I developed my educational philosophy of “teaching the whole child,” realizing that more than what is presented at school defines who a child is. I believe that many of the reasons why children are not successful academically and socially stem from issues and or incidents that occur at home with their families. As a result, I entered into the Marriage and Family Therapy certification program at Argosy University in Atlanta, to obtain additional skills to be used in assisting families to create strategies that will eventually help the entire family succeed and reach their goals. In 2008 I completed this program and today I am a certified marriage and family therapist. In 2017 I earned credentials as a Board Certified TeleMental Health Provider (BC-TMH) and became a Certified Professional Counselor Supervisor (CPCS) in 2018.

Seeking therapy takes courage and personal growth begins when one is willing to take the first step. Do you avoid conflict with others? Do you experience manipulation and gaslighting in your relationships and wonder what is going on? It's not you. I assist clients who are healing from narcissistic abuse within intimate relationships and/or with family of origin. I partner with clients experiencing stress in relationships due to codependency, boundary issues, narcissistic abuse and manipulation. I also work with clients in recovery from substance abuse and clients struggling to manage anger, anxiety, depression, work stress and life transitions. I meet clients where they are on their journeys and partner with them to solve their problems and move forward.

Welcome, I am Feven! Do you feel pulled in a million directions, unable to fit it all in? Are you struggling to keep up with your relationships, work and health? Is it hard to be kind to yourself? I help individuals manage anxiety, depression and burnout. Together, we can identify what's not working and get you back to balance. We'll use a whole self approach; addressing the needs of your mind, body and spirit. I am passionate about helping individuals navigate the different challenges they face and build coping skills to create more fulfilling and holistic life experiences. From my journey, I can personally attest to the power of support, in its many forms. This support goes beyond clients I service but also to their families and communities. I believe that mental wellness isn’t just individualistic; but includes the ecosystem surrounding the person. My praxis acknowledges and aims to support the village needed by all.  I’m also passionate about the transformative impact of safe and brave spaces for those who often experience exclusion. My career has afforded me opportunities to build trust with LGBTQ+, Black, Indigenous, Latina/o/x, and Refugee communities across the nation. It is a personal privilege to center wellness and holistic care for all as ‘self-care is a radical form of resistance.’ Whether you're dealing with overwhelm, relationship issues or cycles of anxiety and depression, trauma, PTSD, self-acceptance, I'm here to help. Seeking therapy can feel scary but you're making the right choice. You deserve a safe space to heal and grow. In our sessions together, I'll meet you with compassion, empathy and evidence-based techniques so you can overcome the hangups and habits holding you back. Let's work together!

Hi! I am an energetic, compassionate Mindfulness Licensed Professional Counselor serving clients in both GA & SC. I have experience working with individuals in outpatient, inpatient, and virtual mental health and addiction settings. I also have experience working in community mental health in which I served individuals who have persistent and severe mental illness such as Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Gender Dysphoria, etc. I have more than 14 years of experience in the counseling arena. I've had the opportunity to work with individuals from all walks of life who are aiming to either "make a change" or "be the change". I incorporate a client centered approach, which enables me to build the necessary rapport to make the therapeutic process less intimidating for clients to define and work towards achieving identified goals. My approach is mainly Somatic and Mindfulness, but I combine Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Humanistic, Holistic, Psycho-dynamic and Acceptance Therapy. My compassion and empathetic demeanor encourages the client to discuss their deepest emotions and experiences. My self-less attitude allows me to meet the client “where they are”, providing a safe space, free from judgment, while providing respect, transparency, genuineness, warmth and engagement. I believe in the importance of addressing the whole person, mind, body and spirit. I believe that individuals in general are doing the best they can and with the intentional practice of mindfulness, and taking life one moment at a time, we can all learn how to manage stress, while learning and utilizing better coping skills to help with serious illness, anxiety, depression and other mental health and addiction concerns. Always remember, small progress is still progress! I look forward to meeting you and working with you as we tackle this thing called life together!
