About me

I am licensed in Georgia as a licensed (clinical) professional counselor, and I have been in practice since 2014 when I graduated from Argosy University, Atlanta, with a Masters in Community Counseling. I have worked in residential treatment centers, for an outpatient mental health clinic, private practice, as well as with military families in school settings.

My primary therapeutic approach is person centered, and I enjoy helping adolescents and adults live happier, healthier lives, by improving their mental health and education. In my experience, I have worked with those who suffer from or have concerns including, but not limited to anxiety, depression, trauma,communication, critical thinking, and other behavioral issues. My approach combines cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, trauma focused-cognitive behavioral therapy, and experiential therapy, to name a few. Based on the initial session, treatment will be tailored to the needs of each individual. I welcome the opportunity to improve day to day functionality. 

Outside of my work as a therapist, I enjoy playing basketball. I also enjoy cooking, spending time with my husband and dog, and traveling to new places.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Evonne Nelson-Smith. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Evonne is probably the best therapist I have had in the last 20 years. She summarised / assessed all the disjointed "mumbo jumbo" I explained to her in our first session so succinctly that I felt she just "got me", as is. She has a calm, accepting demeanour about her that is reassuring and reduces my anxiety. She is patient and encouraging and helps me look at different perspectives when I struggle and can't express myself well. Two thumbs up / Five out of five stars.

I am so happy I was matched with Evonne as my counsellor. She was so helpful especially in a time that I needed it most. Evonne is extremely easy to talk to and I found myself opening up a lot more than I typically do.

When I first started my counselling sessions, she knew exactly which questions to ask. After learning more about me she was able to give me great tools that were simple to use and very effective. When explaining theories and exercises, Evonne always gave great examples to help me better understand the concept.

I would recommend Evonne to anyone who may struggle with anxiety or just needs someone to talk to. Overall, Evonne is amazing and I am so appreciative of her.

Evonne is a great counsellor! She is really good at listening and commiserating but also questioning your thoughts and feelings to change your perspective positively. She also has great solutions and tools to help, and I’ve already noticed a difference after a couple months with her.

Evonne has being very helpful. She listened to my concerns and guides me to a solution that’s manageable and easy for me. In the short time I have been in counseling with her she has gave me great advice, always answers in a timely manner, and is very, very patient. I’m excited and looking forward to continue my counseling with her.
