Hi! My name is Dr. Lana Holmes. I am a licensed clinical psychologist based in the metro Atlanta area. But more than that, I am a Black, bisexual, woman; a nerd; an Air Force brat; and a punk rocker at heart.
From an early age, I felt compelled to help find ways to lessen, heal, and work through the pain that we all experience as people. Moreover, I wanted to break down why we as people behave, speak, and hold beliefs in ways that compound that pain. And when I looked at my options, clinical psychology resonated with me the most, as a means of doing something about it.
I know that those of us who are marginalized and oppressed bear particular kinds of suffering that can be difficult to describe and understand, if you haven’t faced it. That’s why I connect my lived experiences with years of clinical education, training, and work; for a deeper and more authentic style of therapy.
I approach therapy as a collaborator that takes evidence based treatments and tailors them to the needs of people who work with me. Some of the treatment models that I frequently use, include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Problem Solving Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Emotion Focused Couples Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Couples Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy. Furthermore, my areas of expertise include: trauma, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorders, polyamory, BDSM, kink, spirituality, cultural competence, and social justice. Finally, I typically work with adults who are ready to actively invest in therapy.
