Each age and stage of life brings new challenges and it doesn't come with a manual. My goal is to help clients navigate these transitions and challenges in the best way possible. I have spent 12 years working with children and families in a school setting and have seen the way family struggles impact the individual. My particular strengths are communication difficulties, relationship struggles, parenting and attachment needs. I am a practitioner of TBRI (Trust-Based Relational Interventions) and practice human-informed care. I believe that strengthening our healthy relationships and connections can help improve our quality of life.

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.

Life happens. In the most challenging moments, it helps to have a therapist who is prepared to help you navigate life's challenges with a holistic perspective. I have years of experience helping clients navigate difficult individual, nd couple pressures associated with communication, anxiety, depression, trauma, interpersonal conflict and grief. At its best, therapy explores the influence of one's mind (thoughts and emotions), body (physical responses) and spirit (sense of meaning and purpose). My approach to therapy is oriented toward the whole self. I journey with clients to discover healthier paths and meaningful life change. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) based in Georgia. I received dual masters degrees from Mercer University, a doctorate from Emory University and have been practicing for 16 years. I help adults struggling with life transitions, relationship challenges, grief, and personal growth to find a better way forward.

She works with couples, individuals and business leaders with a focus on leadership development, attachment styles and personality disorders. Many of her clients have found great success in their careers, but struggle to feel connected in their relationships or at peace in their daily lives. Jayne' is particularly sensitive to clients struggling in leadership roles and those facing the after-effects of unresolved trauma on their relationships. It is amazing to have dedicated time just for yourself to talk about you, or anything of your choosing, in a non-judgmental space. It is ok to be selfish in a way that allows you to explore, process and heal with support throughout your journey. Therapy may seem scary, but therapy with me is warm, enlightening and collaborative with a mix of a reasonable amount of challenge to help make changes where you feel they are needed. While therapy is a process, you have support throughout your journey to a path of a renewed life. Allow me to join you on your budding journey as you blossom and begin experiencing relief!

Recognizing the need for help is an important first step. In fact, rather than acknowledging a weakness, it is a sign of strength. I want to help you to build on that strength to achieve success in the areas you are struggling with. Specializing in relationship dynamics, I invite individuals, couples, and families to improve communication, resolve conflict, and build skills to manage anxiety, depression, grief, loss, and more. Christian counseling, men's issues, and family roles are additional areas of special focus I provide. I believe in personal responsibility, the reality of options at your disposal, and your ability to make decisions that are good for you with clarity. Ownership results in liberty. I would be working with you to help things make more sense and see a path forward.

Hello, my name is Catherine Roberts, I became a therapist because I enjoy getting to know people on a natural level. My goal is to help guide people through personal challenges to achieve healthier minds. It is possible to learn how to escape from feeling overwhelmed. As a collaborative partner, I would like to help empower you to face life's challenges to a healthier mental well-being. I graduated from Clark Atlanta University, where I obtained my Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology. Now, as a licensed professional counselor, I have worked in private practice for more than fifteen years. I primarily work with clients experiencing depression, grief and loss, anxiety, bipolar disorder, trauma, and addiction. Before working in private practice, I worked as a clinical therapist in an inpatient mental health facility. I work with children, adolescents, and adults, using Cognitive and Dialectical therapies to help my clients learn better ways to cope with life stressors. When you can change the way you think about issues, you are empowered to work to change life outcomes. I believe in being a collaborative partner while working to develop a trusting relationship with my clients. I will work to help you gain the proper tools to escape feeling overwhelmed to learn how to manage life's many challenges.

I became a therapist because therapy changed my life. Experiencing mental illness caused struggle and emotional suffering, but lead me to seek help. The support I found brought solace and healing, and eventually opened doors that led to becoming a therapist. It is such meaningful experience to reach those who are now where I once was. Over the years I had opportunities to work in many settings, including medical and mental health hospitals, intensive outpatient, and residential addiction treatment centers, and now private practice.
