About Me

Welcome! Thank you for stopping by!

I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Georgia. I received my Bachelors in Social work from NC Central University in Durham, NC (Eagle Pride!) and my Master in Direct Practice Social Work from SUNY Albany in Albany, NY. I have experience working with children, military servicemen/women, couples and young adults.
I am a knowledgeable, warm and goal oriented therapist. I use a variety of treatment modalities depending on your needs. I primarily uses Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Focused Therapy. I meet you exactly where you are with 0 judgement. I'd love to help you move from feeling anxious, confused, depressed or "stuck" to gaining clarity, feeling hopeful, happy and "unstuck"!

Let's make the world your oyster! It would be my pleasure to work with you.

While we have only been working together for a short while, I find Akemi's calm and considerate approach to her work to be very reassuring. She has been nothing but reliable and compassionate and it has helped affirm my decision to seek counseling in this format.
