About

We aim to support and offer guidance to our clients as they travel on their healing journey. Our team of therapists are carefully selected for their qualifications, integrity and expertise. We consist of pre-and fully licensed, trained, experienced clinical social workers (LCSW) and licensed professional counselors (LPC). Each of us possess a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in our field. Our fully licensed therapy team have been qualified and certified by Georgia’s professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice. Any therapist who is not fully licensed are provided with clinical supervision and oversight. While our experience, expertise and background vary, we aim to provide top quality service and support to our clients.

For more information about our therapists, please go to the menu bar and select the therapist that you wish to work with. There you will learn more about the therapists education, background and treatment focus area.

We are honored to support you and look forward to connecting with you soon.

Our work is also rooted in the following Kwanzaa principles:

{Nia} Purpose – Our purpose is to be intentional with promoting safety, co-regulation and self care to revitalize and heal the BIPOC community.

{Umoja} Unity – To unite to challenge and disrupt oppressive systems that threaten our humanity and collective healing.

{Kujichagulia} Self Determination – To prioritize rest and restoration. To enter spaces that center our healing and validate our humanity.

{Ujima} Collective Work and Responsibility – To collaborate with community resources, traditional healers and spiritual practitioners in order to further our collective healing from toxic stress and intergenerational trauma.

{Ujamaa} Cooperative Economics – To provide mutual aid to historically marginalized groups who are unable to pay the full cost of service due to wage disparities, resource insecurities, and other oppressive systems that impede healing due to a lack of financial access.

{Kuumba} Creativity – To celebrate and amplify our creative cultural ways of connecting, co-regulating and healing through communal eating, rhythmic movement, dance, song, utterances, moaning, shouting and praising.

{Imani} Faith – To embody spiritual practices and traditions that increase faith, improve wellbeing and the overall health outcomes of the community.
