Mental Health Counseling Services In Marietta, GA
You may not know what to expect going to a counselor. You might even feel intimidated by the idea. One of my top goals is to make you feel comfortable while you’re here. My job is to listen and help you do what works best for you.
My approach to counseling is client-centered. I believe in working together with my clients to solve their problems. I offer different therapeutic solutions and follow your lead with treatment. As the client, you control the course of action I take.
With anything you share, rest assured, I will never judge you. You can always count on empathy and honesty during our sessions. As a licensed professional counselor, I offer informed insight based on my extensive experience and education.
Therapy for Addiction and Substance Abuse
My main specialty as a therapist is addiction and substance abuse. If you’re struggling with addiction, I understand you may not be feeling great about your life right now. Maybe you’re also suffering from shame, guilt, and remorse.
I’m ready to help you face any substance problem. You don’t have to do this alone. I’ll work with you on relapse prevention and other forms of recovery. Through psychotherapy, my goal is to help you foster a healthy lifestyle and address the underlying issues that led to your addiction in the first place.
Psychotherapy for Behavioral Issues
Behavioral issues can get in the way of your progress in life, such as anger, trauma, and low self-esteem. It is possible for you to feel better about who you are—to accept yourself as you are.
We can work together focusing on the present moment through mindfulness and help you learn how to be happier in your everyday life. I can show you how to use more positive self-talk to increase your self-esteem and work through your trauma. We’ll work on putting an end to negative thinking so that you can see yourself in a more positive light.
Counseling for Social Anxiety
Have you ever felt that you weren’t good enough? Have you ever been afraid of what people are thinking about you? These thoughts can lead to social anxiety. One of the ways to overcome this crippling condition is through exposure response prevention.
You may spend a lot of time isolating yourself. That can cause you to feel like you can’t be around anyone. I can help you learn coping skills for social situations to overcome your anxiety and feel comfortable in a crowd.
You may struggle with cognitive distortions, such as black and white thinking, generalization, projecting, catastrophizing, mind reading, and “should” statements. These negative thoughts probably started at an early age. The people around you might have said negative things about you growing up, or maybe you said them about yourself. At No Fences Counseling, I can help you change those negative core beliefs. You can learn how to rewrite your negative thoughts into positive ones using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
Whether you’re thinking about spending the rest of your lives together or have been together for a few short years, I’m here to be an unbiased ear to resolve the issues between you and your partner. I’ll provide solutions for better communication, empathy for your partner, conflict resolution, and establishing effective rituals to bring you closer together.
Even if your relationship is going well, we can find ways to grow your connection and make your bond even stronger. The goal of our therapy is for you and your partner to understand each other better and create a happier relationship.
Work with a Licensed Professional Counselor
I understand that experience is an important factor in the therapist you choose. You want to trust that you’re receiving advice from a qualified professional. I'm a board-certified counselor with ten years of counseling experience. I'm knowledgeable in many treatments and bring many years of life experience to the process. I offer counseling services in Marietta, GA, as well as Atlanta, Kennesaw, and Smyrna, for patients over the age of 14.
