My name is Dr. Naomi Black and I am a Licensed Counselor and a Master Level Addiction Counselor serving the metro Atlanta area. I selected the name 2THEDEGREE because it signifies my authentic belief to empower my sisters as we revisit or rewrite their narrative experiences. In addition, I implement a holistic approach to integrate the well-being of mind, body, and soul as well as co-facilitate a therapeutic alliance to create the nature, purpose and organic consequences that increases one’s level of self-acceptance to confront challenges effectively. I believe that changing mindsets and shifting belief systems drive the transformation of behaviors, therefore my modalities include Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Trauma-Focused Therapy-CBT, Military STAR Behavioral Health platform, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, and Crisis Intervention to treat depression, grief/loss issues, trauma, emotional dysregulation, family/couple conflict, suicidal ideation, aging, school/career related challenges and other unresolved barriers. I offer weekday and weekend service days as well as after work hour appointments (upon request). I look forward to serving your therapeutic needs.
