My name is Dr. Naomi Black and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Master Level Addiction Counselor serving the metro Atlanta area. I selected the name Circle of Therapeutic Alliance and Consulting because it signifies my authentic belief to empower my culturally diverse sisters as we revisit or rewrite their narrative experiences together. 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.
