Welcome! My name is Jamesia Mathis and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia. I earned a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Mercer University and hold a Bachelor’s of Science in Sociology from Reinhardt University. I have over 5 years of experience working in the mental health field. I have experience with individual and group counseling from various settings such as crisis stabilization, partial-hospitalization,intensive-outpatient, and outpatient for both adolescents and adults. While in these settings, I have become well versed in addiction and substance abuse, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, trauma/abuse, relationship issues, grief self-harm and suicidal ideations.
I believe that one’s thoughts and feelings play a fundamental role in behaviors and that building awareness of negative thinking patterns and maladaptive behaviors can be utilized to initiate a process of change. I work in partnership with you to explore your current and past experiences to help you to identify the root cause of your struggle and explore ways to help you to gain more peace and happiness in your life via conquering your struggle. As such, therapy with me will involve helping you to know that although technically a noun, therapy requires action; it requires a readiness and willingness to address that which pains you.
Therapy is no easy feat. I know that it is not easy to open up to someone about your deepest pains and secrets; some of whom you may have never admitted to yourself. We will move at a pace that is most comfortable for you. I thank you for choosing me to help you navigate this often turbulent journey to mental health wellness.

Jamesia has helped me so much with my anxiety and my communication skills. I would recommend her to others without hesitation. Her support has been so incredible for me.
She is easy to talk to, kind, and provides very concrete steps to deal with stress, grief, and anxiety. I was hesitant about this process but she makes it relieving and rewarding.
Jamesia talks to me in a way that I can understand and get the message across without feeling offended or that she isn’t listening. I feel like I’m being understood and actually getting sound suggestions that help me make better decisions to determine what is appropriate for my life. She is wonderful and I appreciate her service. True eye-opening help.
This is my first time ever having someone to talk to and someone who really listen to me. She make me feel like I can depend on her words of guidance to doing better in my mention health. I truly appreciate her for all her time and dedication to my mental state. Because to much in life we have friends and family who over look or don’t care all together about our mental health but with this app and these counselors you all really make a difference.
