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.

Hello, my name is Robert Golan. I have been counseling for 29 years. I use a collection of techniques to help my clients. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as my primary approach. I have found this method to be very successful with clients.

I prefer to use encouragement and help clients find their own motivation for improving their lives. I utilize mindfulness as well as behavior modification to augment my client’s well being. I also use Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy when it is appropriate to help clients with past trauma. Counseling is a very collaborative process so I look forward to helping you achieve your goals. Education and Training I am a Board Certified Counselor (NCC) as well as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Tennessee and Georgia.

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.

Things can feel out of control and you don’t know how to slow it down. Life can feel like a whirlwind sometimes. Maybe thoughts are irrational, but can’t stop them. Maybe you are starting to realize you might not make the best choices. Maybe you have driven yourself into a state of panic. Maybe your child has hit a breaking point and you don’t know how to help. We can figure this out together. I want to help you achieve that balance you are looking for so you can start living the life you want. I have worked with children and adults for the past 13 years in community mental health, in schools, and in private practice.

I am retired Army officer and a licensed and board certified clinical social worker. I am considered a subject matter expert in a few areas, primarily cognitive behavior therapy. I chose to be a cognitive therapist because it resonates with me and because it works. Traditional talk therapy can be cathartic and have a relaxing effect, but you could do that with a friend at no cost. I value your time and money by utilizing evidence-based psychotherapy techniques to help you get better faster and learn the skills to help keep you out of a therapists office in the future.

I offer online counseling to help adults recover from childhood wounds. These issues can present as depression, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem and interpersonal challenges. I approach counseling as an opportunity to understand your story and help you develop a path to healing. It's human nature to want healthy relationships, meaningful work and activities you enjoy, to have a good quality of life. If you're experiencing ineffective communication skills, career dissatisfaction, parenting challenges, family/relationship stress or feelings overwhelm, I would be glad to help you improve upon these problems. I utilize the following models of treatment depending on the needs of each individual: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Mindfulness Interventions. I studied psychology at the University of Georgia, obtaining a B.A. in psychology in 1998. Later in my career, I obtained a Master of Social Work from Valdosta State University in 2011. I became fully licensed in 2015. I understand that life can throw you. some curve balls. My desire to help others improve their quality of life led to a career spanning twenty years.

Have you been thinking about therapy and struggling with where to begin? Sometimes taking the first step is the most difficult one. I can help you take that first step with a warm and encouraging approach to therapy. I practice cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) using a compassionate, client-centered philosophy. This approach employs evidence-based techniques and tools to address symptoms of anxiety, depression, and related issues in an accepting, non-judgemental therapeutic relationship. Change takes time. My goal is for the people I work with to feel heard, supported, and able to develop skills to use in their lives and relationships. Personal growth leads to living as the most authentic and best version of ourselves. I look forward to helping you grow. Daytime and evening are appointments available.

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!

Hello. My name is Howard Patterson, but I go by Andy. I have been a mental health professional for over 45 years, with the majority of my experience being in the field of child welfare. My specialties include but are not limited to, stress, anxiety, depression, marital and other relationship issues, veteran issues, teenage emotions, and behaviors, as well as parenting styles and issues. My style is non-confrontational and non-judgmental, allowing you to take therapy in the direction you choose. My role is to offer wisdom gained from my many years of experience and to perhaps assist you in seeing your issues from a different perspective. Our first meeting will mostly be a "get to know" each other session, discussing where we are from, our family, employment, as well as hobbies, and other enjoyable activities. We will then briefly discuss your reason for seeking therapy, as time allows. While I am not a Biblical scholar, I consider myself to be very spiritual and I will gladly offer my views and thoughts;, with respect to your issues, if you initiate that conversation. I have been a Christian since the age of nine.
