I am deeply passionate about the work that I do. My counseling style is an integrative holistic approach. It is my goal to encourage, empower and equip each individual with the necessary tools to make positive steps forward no matter how big or how small. We are all resilient individuals that have the capacity to change. It is my desire to see every individual grow and make healthy changes to reach their maximum potential and lead full healthy productive lives!
I have been practicing in the mental health field for 15 years. I possess a P-12 School Guidance Counselor License in the state of Georgia, a LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) in the states of Georgia and Michigan, and a National Counselor Certification (NCC).
My wealth of experience derives from working with several P-12 school districts, colleges, community mental health organizations, correctional facilities, and hospitals. I have also facilitated mental health workshops and seminars for major corporations such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, Head Start, and Junior Achievement. Through my private practice, Q & A's Counseling Corner, I also provide EAP services. All of this while promoting and creating greater mental health awareness in the community through varies venues, conventions and expos.
I look forward to assisting you in taking the time to ease your mind!

I’ve been working with Andrina for a couple months now, and I can already tell I’m processing bad situations better and forming healthier boundaries. She’s been a great resource and has helped me be a better partner in my relationship while also taking the time to help my partner by giving us exercises to work on.

A well deserved review goes to Ms. Andrina. It is my first time receiving counseling and I am very impressed. Her ability to relate to me, and provide me with wisdom and knowledge for every challenge I discuss with her is amazing. If I was selfish I would keep her all to myself, but she must be shared because she has the potential to help more people than I can imagine.
