I am Zatascha Burton, a Licensed Professional Counselor and as a therapist, I stay educated about best practices for working with my clients. I strive to create an affirming space for every community - helping individuals, and young people to identify and achieve their personal goals by coping with the issues that are causing them distress, anxiety, and stress. I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor since 2013. I have worked in Behavioral Health with adult individuals and school age children for the past eight years in the SE Georgia region and have recently launched my private practice in 2020. I am thrilled to have found my passion in psychotherapy and helping others. From a deep desire in my heart to make a positive impact, I discovered that people need someone they can trust and talk to without judgment. This need fueled my drive to create a safe space for diverse cultures and populations.

Is emotional upheaval getting in the way of your moving forward with your life? I would love the opportunity to help you to sort through the sources of the emotions, help to make them more manageable, and help you to regain some sense of direction and progress for your life. Working toward more refined beliefs and understanding about emotions, circumstances, and responses to them can be helpful. In my roughly 28 years as a psychologist I have mostly worked with people who have problems with anxiety, depression, PTSD, anger, relationship problems, and aging issues. I have worked with ages ranging from elementary school to 70s and a little older. I have found that experience allows me to realize client needs more quickly than in my early years in practice, and hope to use this experience to your benefit. Note that online scheduling is limited. Broader scheduling options will be available to regularly scheduling clients, or by calling me at 678-322-8774. I typically respond to messages Monday morning through Thursday afternoon. Please also note that I do not provide opinions about disability or fitness to return to work or other activities for clients who are not well-established at the time that the request for such opinion is made.

Greetings! Secular psychotherapist here. Is taking care of everyone but yourself breaking you down? Tired of being called “co-dependent”? Do you have beliefs that are different from others and feel a little “off”? Are you becoming more and more anxious or depressed? You're not alone. I help those looking for a professional confidant and can help with processing difficult transitions and even traumas. Maybe the transition you are going through is attempting to take care of aging parents while raising a family of your own. Or perhaps you are having difficulty setting boundaries with a toxic person in your life. Perhaps you are having difficulty with relationships due to a past that seems ever so present. My therapeutic style is empathetic and interpersonal. Person-centered. I use evidence-based talk therapy (Acceptance & Commitment, Narrative, etc.) and mindfulness techniques. I believe in our getting to know one another well over time. I welcome diversity in my practice, including those with other than traditional orientations: religious, sexual, gender, or otherwise. Hit the “Book Session” today to find out if we are a fit.

Have you lost the motivation to be intimate? Does constant thinking make it hard to love yourself, love your body, and allow pleasure into your daily life? Is your favorite line, "I'm always in my head"? Have you lost connection to pleasure so much that you can't even enjoy the intimacy of sex? ...it's okay, you're not alone. You've spent so much time being available and thinking for everyone else that you've lost sight of the most important person....you. What would life be like if you knew her again?

Things have started falling apart around you. You're worried about losing a relationship, your job, or worse. People close to you have started to mention they are worried about you. A part of you wants to change, but you're stuck between unbearable emotions and trying to keep everything under control. And it's not working out. You may be lashing out, drinking more, or avoiding people close to you. Whether you are dealing with depression, anxiety, anger, shame from the past, or out-of-control substance use, you don’t have to stay where you are – suffering. You’re resilient and persistent, and right now, you’re just stuck. I help people recover from being stuck in anxiety, depression, trauma, and/or the shame that comes with out-of-control substance use. I can help you figure out how to get back on track by teaching you the tools you’ll need to manage your feelings and problems and how to recover your relationships. No one needs to go through what you are feeling, alone. If you are ready for a new strategy and to try something different, I can help. The biggest result I could give you is to help you remove barriers that prevent you from achieving your goals. I do this with DBT, Brainspotting, and other therapy techniques.

Hi! My name is Gail, and I have worked with children, individuals and families for almost two decades! I love working with all populations, but I especially love helping people who are struggling with inner woundedness left over from childhood trauma. I love the healing process, and I appreciate supporting clients as they work through their struggles, heal their childhood wounds, show up authentically as they are, and connect more deeply with their children, their partners, and themselves. I would be honored to help you through the healing process and partner with you on your path to joy and self-discovery. I especially enjoy working with young to middle aged women, because I have been through all those transitions- from high school and college graduation, job changes, dating, friendships, self-discovery, and finally marriage, pregnancy, and raising children. My specialties include being a Certified Trauma Professional (CTP) an understanding of the Enneagram (I'm a certified teacher/professional through several schools) as well as conscious parenting- I am certified coach (CPC) by Dr. Shefali Tsabary. I consider myself a "human potentialist." I believe in my clients; I believe in their ability to create goals, experience profound growth, and create positive and lasting changes. I would appreciate any client who seeks me out for therapy to be open to looking inward, embracing their full potential, and have some open mindedness towards the Enneagram, since I refer to it in my work.
