Thank you for considering me as your counselor. I have over 11 years experience and believe that my overall goal is to help you overcome your current struggle and in a way that you can apply everything we do towards future issues. I have taken the time and effort to learn and become competent in many different techniques as I believe everyone is different and as such benefits from different ways of doing things. I also take the time to understand you and what you need so that I can build around what is already working for you and the strengths you have, giving us the best options to move forward. I have a diverse background and work well with most people and I am thankful for those I have helped and brings me great joy when clients say that they are happy to have found success working with me.

Hey! I'm Talia Auslin and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Atlanta, Georgia. A little bit more about me; I am a School Counselor at a K-12 school and have over 9 years of experience working in the mental health field. In times when you might be feeling alone, stuck, or in a negative headspace, it’s so important to have a safe space to be able to share your thoughts and feelings - especially with a professional who is willing to help, support, and validate your current reality. If that is what you’re looking for, then I am your person. When working with you, my goal is to meet your individual needs by using a non-judgmental, person-centered, multicultural, and holistic approach. I primarily use evidence-based techniques including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Solution-Focused Counseling, and Mindfulness. In addition to my counseling profession and approaches, I am also very passionate about social justice and LGBTQAI+ rights, and I identify within the community. I consider myself to be a very open-minded, progressive, supportive, and empathetic individual who wants to genuinely understand you. Through our collaborative partnership, I’m here to help you each step of the way to becoming you again, or re-discovering who you want to be in this world. It’s an ongoing journey for all of us, but through the right support, the process is worth it.

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!

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.
