Hello, I appreciate you taking the time to read my bio, and I am looking forward to meeting with you. I am a husband and father of five children and enjoy much of my free time with my family.

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.

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.

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.

Hello, I'm Dr. Ellinor Burke and I'm a psychologist licensed in the state of Georgia. I've been in practice for more than 20 years and I've struggled with some of the same issues many of you do. I have developed effective treatments for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder because I have dealt with this disorder myself. If you're looking for an effective treatment I have one. Many of us are worriers and have anxiety related to this. Anxiety can have a draining effect on your life but it is treatable. .I use cognitive and behavioral therapy combined with supportive therapy to help you get to that positive place in your life. If you're dealing with depression I'm also here to help by looking at how your thoughts feelings and behaviors influence each other and how we can work together to deal with these issues. I see patients with varying issues and from many age groups. All in all a diverse population. I was a school psychologist for more than ten years and I do educational assessments as well as therapy for adolescents. I find teenagers are some of the most challenging and rewarding to work with. My work is very emotionally rewarding which is why I've been in practice for so many years. I'm now considering expanding my practice to a hybrid practice which will include seeing clients both remotely and in my office. Therapy begins with me getting to know you and for you to feel comfortable with me. I strive to create a safe and welcoming environment because therapy works when we have a positive connection which I hope we will have.

I like to view psychotherapy and the therapeutic relationship as having a personal trainer for your emotional well being and personal life. It can teach relational skills and promote healing. It requires a commitment to yourself and serves as an investment. The return on that investment can be achieving goals, growth, and emotional satisfaction. There are many reasons someone may seek out a therapist, regardless of those reasons my goal is to provide a safe, non-judgmental environment where we can build a trusting therapeutic relationship that allows for healing and growth. I am a Licensed Psychotherapist with over 25 years of clinical experience specializing in grief and loss, trauma, PTSD, addiction, mood disorders, suicidal ideation and crisis intervention. I enjoy working with diverse cliental across all stages of life.

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!
