Welcome to Better Help! You have great courage because you are taking the first step in seeking help for the current challenges you are facing. I am sure it's not easy to find the right person to help you through these challenges and building a rapport with your counselor is very important. Please let me provide some information about myself in order to help you decide if my experience and style is the right match for you.
My name is Kajuana Pitts, and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Georgia. I earned my Master of Social Work degree, from Clark Atlanta University in 2003 and my Bachelors of Science(BS) in Psychology from Georgia State University in 1998. I have been a Social Worker for over 17 years and I have experience with working with people from all different backgrounds who struggle with severe emotional, psychological and behavioral challenges. I have worked in many different settings with individuals and families who have a variety of personal issues such as relationship and parenting issues, stress, family problems, trauma and abuse. I collaborate and partner with people to help them develop SMART GOALS to achieve the life they want, in addition to working with couples to help them identify the breakdown in their relationship, by providing communication skills and developing boundaries.
I usually check messages twice each day, Tuesday-Saturday and I offer messaging, phone sessions and video sessions. Please note that what you see in my calendar may not reflect my only availability as a result, please message me to see if any additional dates and times are available that week.
I look forward to working with you!

Kajuana had been super supportive through my journey overcoming my emotional struggles and making the changes I wanted in my life. Definitely could not have done it without her!

I really appreciated working with Dr. Kajuana, she was able to give me a lot of insight in situations that I didn’t even realize had such a simple solution. She also made talking to her and the solutions she offered very approachable and easily digestible so it wasn’t intimidating at all. Unfortunately, I can’t afford to keep using Betterhelp, so I’m sad that I won’t be able to continue working with her.
