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.

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!

Is life scary sometimes? Is it hard for you to have the confidence to tackle the big things in life? Do you sometimes notice a younger part of yourself that needs comfort? I help those of you who suffer from unresolved traumas both big and small. I pull from my experiences of mother, grandmother, wife, widow, sister, daughter. Together we can explore the different parts of self and how our roles and relationships affect us. I can guide you to a deeper awareness of how life wounds can affect performance and satisfaction with life. I use a combination of EMDR, mindfulness, ego state and somatic awareness to help you achieve your goals. Through this process you may begin to feel a deeper peace that I call soul living; fully embracing who you are and the moment you are in. Together we can improve the quality of your relationships with others and with yourself. Specialties include: Addictions ADHD/inattentive/impulsive/hyperactivity Attachment issues Complex Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Dissociation Disabilities Mental Health

Life in general can be challenging, Let me meet you where you are on your life's journey.. Many of us endure distress that has resulted in mental, emotional, and physical anguish.

My passion is to help people facilitate change by teaching a new way to “think” of challenges as we go about life.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) based in Atlanta, GA who works with adult individuals. I enjoy working with people of all backgrounds, identities and life experiences and am particularly passionate about supporting those who have been impacted by criminal legal systems. I frequently see clients for the following concerns: • Anxiety, Depression, and mood concerns • Relationship and communication challenges • Processing and coping with major transitions • Support for those in helping professions • Grief & loss • Self-esteem & body image concerns • Addiction recovery & support • Gender dysphoria and gender transition support • Trauma (acute, chronic, complex, and historical) • Trauma & grief specific to legal system involvement Building authentic, compassionate connections is central to my therapeutic approach. I will engage you as a partner in the therapeutic process, tapping into your unique strengths as we process your emotions and patterns together. I will apply a multitude of evidence-based practices during our sessions in order to provide a truly individualized and person-centered experience. Some modalities I frequently use include: CBT, DBT, Internal Family Systems, Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness, trauma-informed care, and somatic therapy techniques. I am also in the process of obtaining EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy) and WPATH (World Professional Association for Transgender Health) certifications. Before working with clients privately, I practiced as a mental health clinician in jail and prison settings, as well as within court systems and a pre-arrest diversion program. I remain passionately involved in legal system reform and abolition work and feel that my responsibilities and ethical obligations as a social worker extend well beyond the therapeutic relationship, to also include such social justice policy advocacy and community organizing efforts. Due to their overrepresentation within legal systems, I have had the honor of working with many clients who identify as transgender or gender non-conforming. I welcome clientele of all genders, sexualities, races, ethnicities and religions, and remain committed to actively seeking out education and opportunities for growth concerning anti-racist and anti-oppressive therapeutic practices. I seek to maintain a practice in which people of all identities do not simply feel tolerated, but feel deeply understood, accepted, and nurtured.
