My name is Eve Pearson-Marcus. I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Georgia since 2009 and have worked in a variety of clinical settings. I’ve worked in hospitals, primary care clinics, met with clients in their homes, worked for a non-profit agency and counseling center, worked with soldiers and veterans in military settings, and had a private practice. In addition to my LCSW, I have also had a National Association of Social Work Advanced Credential in Case Management (C-ASWCM) in the past. That’s a fancy way of saying I’m good at connecting people with the resources they need!
I would describe my primary therapeutic style as Person-Centered, but also may use Cognitive Behavioral Theory, Solution-focused, Eclectic, & Feminist theories at times.
I have worked with a great variety of clients including individuals with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorders, LGBT issues, drug and alcohol issues, schizophrenia, eating disorders, and attention deficit, and attention deficit-hyperactivity disorders. I have also worked with individuals with Highly Functioning Autism ( formerly Asperger’s Syndrome) personality disorders, sexual disorders including paraphiliacs, and pedophilia.
I’ve worked with many women during my career as a therapist and have always found it especially fulfilling to work with young people. Perhaps it’s because I was once a young woman facing many challenges of my own, or that I have two daughters of my own.
I completely understand how overwhelming it can be to feel alone when you’re depressed, anxious, or in emotional pain of any kind. Whatever you are feeling, believe me, your issues are very real. I commend you for seeking help, because it’s not an easy thing to do. People of all ages are struggling with careers, job loss, and financial worries. Loneliness is epidemic and was especially difficult during the pandemic as people were separated from important family, personal, and work relationships.
I believe in helping my clients bring their strengths forward and into the light. While it can be difficult, if not impossible, to acknowledge your strengths when you’re depressed, I can assure you everyone has strengths. We all need extra support at some point in our lives and I feel counseling should be as natural as going to the doctor, or even taking a college course. We are meant to always be learning, evolving, and improving ourselves.
Lastly, I am confident in my ability to help my clients and have an excellent clinical toolbox to share. I commit to providing my clients with a strong system of support, and will always provide an accepting, non-judgmental, caring and safe environment.

Experienced in all aspects of life aspects. Always making you feel important and cared for. Life experience and educated experience are not the same. Eve has both. Make you work ‘hard’ to be a better you for yourself.

Eve has been so helpful to me! From helping me unpack situations in my life on my terms to suggesting things that I would have never thought of, I can’t recommend her as a therapist enough.

Eve is amazing. I’ve only seen her a couple times but she checks on me regularly. Thank you for changing my opinion on therapist.
