About Me

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 helped me a lot in recognizing what I need to work on and how I need to process my feelings, as well as what I needed to do to get through a hard time. I highly recommend her!

Written by K.Y. on Jun 28, 2022 after therapy with Jamesia for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, career difficulties, and coaching

Jamesia has been absolutely wonderful! She takes the time to really listen to my concerns, she never makes me feel stupid, and she works with me to reframe the ways I've been processing things from both my present and my past. It has been so incredibly helpful having her support these past six months. She has never rushed into giving her input without first asking meaningful questions to make sure she fully understands me first, and that means a lot. Couldn't recommend her more!

I like that Jamesia is very thorough and patient with me. She also listens to everything that I say, not just the superficial comment. She seeks to understand the meaning behind the statement or expression. This is most helpful.

Jamesia has been the best therapist I've had since I decided to start therapy and I am very grateful to her for the compassion and guidance she has shown me since working with her. She truly listens to my concerns without judgment, and that has made all the difference in my recovery. Thank you for all of your hard work.
