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 think one of the most important parts of therapy is finding the right "fit". That relationship is key in helping grow, trust and meet any goals that you might have going into the therapeutic process. Let me give you a glimpse of who I am! I'm Amy, a LMHC, who has been in the counseling world for over 15 years and love what I get to do. I started my career in the community health sector which I learned so much and worked with diverse groups of people with an array of various needs. I have worked in school settings as well as in homes. I have been deep within the community in many of my roles along the way. I have developed many techniques along the way as not one intervention will work for everyone. Some of the modalities I use are EMDR, CBT, Motivational interviewing, solution-focused techniques as well as a combination of these. I meet people where they are, maybe having to learn how they are even feeling let alone how to cope with that feeling. Maybe we have a tool, but if no one ever took the time to teach us, then what good is that tool?

Hi my name is Tujuana Shaw-Jallah I am a licensed professional therapist my clients call me "TJ" Do you need a safe place to discuss your issues, a place that does not judge you or make you feel as if you are the only "individual" who is struggling to make it through the day? Well you have come to the right place. I believe in empowering my patients to be their very best no matter what circumstances they find themselve in each day. Low Self-Esteem, guilt, and depression are internal culprits that often suppress an individual externally. My Specialty is with teens and adult women who have been traumatized as a result of sexual abuse or violence. I believe that healing starts with removing the “band-aid” taking off the mask and breaking free from the past and moving forward . 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 and evidence-based techniques so you can overcome the hangups and habits holding you back. Get ready to break FREE!

Over the last 8 years of working as a therapist, I've seen and experiencing everything. From children struggling in the schools, to woman struggling with everyday life problems, I've realized one thing that they have in common-hope. Hope is important when coming to therapy. You are hoping to feel better; you are hoping to come to become a new person. I want us to work on how we treat ourselves allows others to treat us in the same way. My goal as a therapist is to help you help yourself. As a Reality therapist, I focus on your current relationships and conflicts. This type of therapy doesn't really focus on the past unless it is trying to connect some sort of pattern of behavior. As a reality therapist, I see behaviors as choices and learning how to change those behaviors to have a better outcome so that one can FEEL real love for themselves and others! All the reality therapist I know are very honest, direct, and focus on you taking accountability for your actions. I pray for all of my clients for their love, joy, peace, be restored during this process of healing themselves. I am a faith-based therapist who believes GOD and therapy is important and using verses and stories from the Bible provide symbolism and revelation in the areas of anger, anxiety, depression, and more.

Hi there, I'm Xavier Have you ever asked yourself why am I always stressed? Or how about, why do I feel all over the place emotionally? Nobody understands what I am going through, not even my closet family and friends. Does this effect your relationships, work, health, or generally how you feel about yourself as an individual? Well be encouraged! I help everyday people manage their depression, anxiety, loneliness, feelings about themselves, and everyday stressors which occur from just living life. We'll use a holistic approach to addressing the challenges and needs in your life. I like to utilize cognitive behavioral therapy as well as a rational emotive behavior therapy approach help replace negative self-defeating thoughts with positive thoughts and feelings about yourself. I'm here to help. I understand seeking help can evoke feelings of embarrassment or fear but it's okay. You are definitely making a great choice. In our sessions together you can be confident and stress-free knowing you are in a safe space, which will allow you to heal, grow, and learn new things about yourself. I will meet you exactly where you are in life, not where you were in the past, or where your going in the future. One step at a time, one day at a time. Can't wait to work with you!

Welcome and thanks for visiting my profile here at Grow! My name is Tiffany, and I am an original native of Memphis, Tennessee. However, I was raised in Stone Mountain/Lithonia, GA, and began my academic journey in Augusta, GA. In 2012, I completed my undergraduate training at Paine College, where I achieved my Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology with an emphasis in pre-professional studies. Seeking to understand more about human interaction and behavior, I developed an intense passion for mental health which led me to the obtainment of my Master of Science Degree in Applied Psychology with a special concentration in Behavioral Health from the University of Phoenix in 2016. As I grew to learn and understand more about the role and impact of significant relationships and systemic issues on individual mental health, I went on to pursue and obtain my second Master of Science Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at Capella University in 2022. My career journey highlights extensive hands-on experience in nearly every realm of the practice of mental/behavioral health to include child & adolescent counseling, family, marriage, and couples counseling, as well as forensic and geriatric psychology, applied behavior analysis, international education coordination services, substance abuse treatment, case management, inpatient psychiatric/crisis intervention, and treatment servicing at-risk youth in secure facilities. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, listening to music, dancing, eating, and traveling.
