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.

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.

My name is Kirsti and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Athens, Ga. I am the program director at a recovery center from 6am until 1pm and doing private practice in the afternoon. I spent my twenties working in film and television, then spent my thirties working as a birth activist and midwifery advocate. A dear friend suggested that I return to school to get my MSW because she said I was already doing social work and I may as well get paid to do it! My experience has taught me to be client centered and to help folks reframe the way they look at their lives and tell their stories. I enjoy witnessing clients as they reconnect with their own power and sense of agency.

Meaningful change can take place once we are able to acknowledge that change is needed. In my profession as a therapist, my goal is to help others achieve change, growth, and improved mental health in their lives. It was during my own therapeutic experience many years ago where I learned the value of the journey to change and mental wellness. I would later decide to become an agent of change for others when I obtained my master’s in social work. My passion is working with women to help them effectively manage their mental health. As a woman I understand the challenges with having several roles and the expectation of being perfect in each role. I assist my clients by empowering them to take their own journey of self-discovery that leads to learning, growing, and thriving. My approach to the therapeutic process is person centered and focused as I believe clients are the experts of their own lives. My goal is to offer the support needed to facilitate the change and growth my clients seek.
