Hi there! My name is Shantelle and I am a licensed clinical social worker in Georgia. Chances are if you've landed here, it's not been on accident or mishap. I'm sure you are contemplating or considering counseling & therapy. Maybe your mind is settled and you'd like to proceed. I can tell you firsthand that therapy is a very rewarding self investment. I can also tell you that therapy isn't very easy - it requires intention, transparency, and willingness. It requires talking about some uncomfortable "stuff". No, I don't expect you to come air out your dirty laundry or tell me your deepest darkest secrets. However, I would like for you to show up ready and willing to grow, change, and begin your healing. Healing is also an ongoing process and in order for therapy to work you must be invested in the process.
My goal is to help you find a healthy balance, achieve life enrichment and gain inner peace. I begin where you are as we work together in creating a unique plan to meet your individual needs. My approach is very calming, straightforward, empathetic and caring. I incorporate evidence based techniques such as, cognitive behavioral therapy - talk therapy, problem solving therapy, and solution focused therapy. For the past 10+ yrs I've worked in the field of Social Work. I have worked in behavioral health, psychiatric care, refugee resettlement, child protective services, investigations, non profit, and state advocacy/compliance. While I've worked in a variety of settings, I am most passionate about working with individuals, couples, and families to bring about positive life changes - in a safe, respectful and non judgmental space.
Ready to start your healing journey? If so, let’s chat! I look forward to working with you!
