I want to assist individuals, couples, and families, ages 5 to 99+, on their chosen paths to living a healthy, mentally stable lifestyle by creating a safe, compassionate, and caring environment where individuals are free to be themselves, where they are comfortable in their skins, where they can identify their strengths, identify their goals, and pursue those goals on their timeline. I also want to strive to help families define their normal and achieve that vision while developing positive self-esteem, healthy coping skills, and appropriate boundaries.

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.

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!

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?

Welcome! My name is Natalie and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Certified Professional Counselor Supervisor. If you're new to therapy or have tried therapy in the past and want to begin again, I can help. I specialize in Somatic techniques as well as Internal Family Systems and Dialectal Behavior Therapy to help you process pain and change unhealthy patterns in your life. I also treat issues such as anxiety, depression, Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, PTSD and OCD. My approach is holistic, which is the belief that our bodies and minds are deeply connected and work together which means they should be treated together to achieve true balance. This simply means that in our sessions we will focus on the mind and thoughts but also tune into and connect with our feelings and emotional body. Each therapy session and treatment plan should be as unique as you are, and together, we will work to get to the root of your symptoms and develop a plan to achieve true contentment and peace. This personalized and holistic approach helps you see your world through a more positive and balanced lens that promotes total wellbeing.

No matter how hard we try in life, inevitably we come across unpredictable waters. Sometimes riding the waves of life can be delightful and sometimes it can be soul crushing. Thus, I seek to help high functioning adults and adolescents to "embrace uncertainty and live joyfully through the process." I hope to energize and empower you to become the best version of yourself, especially during times of adversity. I work with you to evaluate your life goals and to gain insight and clarity about factors that might influence your success. I personally have experienced the power of having someone offer support in both the good and bad times of uncertainty, and it would be an absolute honor to support you as you navigate your life!

Hi I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia ! I have been practicing as a therapist for 17 years working with a wide range of human struggles. I believe the power to change and grow is within us and human beings are never broken or "bad"... we are simply hurting and this can manifest in behaviors that protect us from feeling the weight of the pain we are in. I believe the therapeutic space is sacred and deeply meaningful. I can't wait to be part of your healing journey.

Hi! I'm one of those people who has always been interested in mental health and it's impact on the life the of the individual, their family, community, and society at large. I have collaborated with clients to improve their mental health and well-being in many different settings. My experience comes from working at a hospital Emergency Department, a community organization, and a mental health agency serving individuals with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities, mental illness, and homelessness. Additionally, I have conducted individual and group therapy in a clinical setting. I have learned in my counseling experience that successful results require collaboration, commitment, and intentionality by both parties, the client and counselor. The client, as the expert of their life takes an active role in the treatment process and we work together for their best outcome by participating in treatment goal setting and keeping the change process alive by completing homework assignments, as needed, between counseling sessions. My hope is that an honest, trusting, and respectful relationship is built as the client realizes their best outcomes.
