About Me

Hello, my name is Mark and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Georgia. I have been working in mental health for twenty years. I have raised five children and have a lot of life experience in addition to my professional training. My Bachelor's Degree is in Religious Studies and my Master's Degree is in Community Mental Health Counseling. I have two years of training in Christian Counseling where I was certified through my church.
My counseling approach is one of collaboration. We will work as a team and put our minds together to find solutions. Once the problem is identified we can come up with a set of steps with small goals along the way to achieve. When you achieve a goal we will make a new one to get you another step closer to your end goal and a successful/desired outcome. As part of the work we do I will likely assign homework to complete between sessions and sometimes I will challenge you with a therapeutic task. Part of your job in our work together is to be as open and honest with me as you can. If you are having a bad day I want to know about it. My role as a therapist is to listen to you in a non-judgmental way, provide unconditional support, and be genuine and authentic at all times. Together we will create a plan to tackle problems one by one. We will prioritize what is most urgent and start there. I believe people can/will get better when they work at it regardless of the challenge they face. I use elements from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Adlerian Psychology primarily when helping in addition to Spiritual Therapy for my Christian clients that request it. I am a natural encourager and believe in my client’s ability to improve.
Years of experience working with all age groups, in varied settings and diverse populations providing therapy for clients with severe and persistent mental illness and substance use disorders has prepared me to help if given the chance.
I look forward to working with you!

Written by M.I. on Apr 07, 2022 after therapy with Mark for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, anger management, and adhd

It's been hard but I finally found a therapist that is globally grounded which allow an easy connection. Patient, wise, experienced, open and receptive, non judgemental, unbias, great listening and responding skills are only a small portion of words that describe his persona. I feel blessed to have found a therapist that is actually helping me to work through my challenges. As a professional he goes over and beyond to help his clients to reach their goals.

I have received counselling from Mark for 1 year and a half. I am thankful that he had been my counselor throughout my difficult times and his professional help, care and guidance he's shown me had been tremendous help towards my recovery.

Written by A.L. on Jan 26, 2022 after therapy with Mark for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, depression, self esteem, trauma and abuse, adhd, anger management, and eating disorders

I thought his reviews were far too glowing to be real. I was pleasantly surprised. Good work!

Written by C.H. on Jan 22, 2022 after therapy with Mark for 1 month on issues concerning depression, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

I'm not a newbie to therapy (unapologetic), and I can say without a doubt that Mark understands every bit of what I have been through and has helped me from the starting line with him (he had zero knowledge of my past). Mark is truly invested in me as a client and provides me homework that has helped me and my marriage, and I could not be more grateful. I'm grateful that I joined the BH community so that I could get connected with Mark. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Mark! <3

He has been absolutely fantastic! Talking to him is exactly what I need.

Written by R.O. on Jan 04, 2022 after therapy with Mark for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression

Our wonderful marriage of 46 years ended abruptly and unexpectedly with my wife's passing almost four years ago. I have been experiencing, and occasionally consumed by, regret and guilt over things I should have said to her at the end and failed to say. Mark has been extremely effective in helping me recognize the need to let it go and providing insights on how to make that happen. In addition to our sessions together, he has suggested some powerful resources to help on my journey toward forgiving myself. Roy Lantz

Mark listens. He doesn't try and rush the session but he will help you find your path so the seasons aren't wasted. He is amazing.

Written by L.E. on Dec 25, 2021 after therapy with Mark for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, anger management, career difficulties, and adhd

Mark is highly attentive and focused on achieving better results through sensible counseling. He’s very perceptive and picks up on the things I don’t say, brings them to light, and helps me address them. I appreciate his understanding and compassionate guidance. He’s given me tools that have been impactful and relevant to my needs and situation.

Mark has helped a lot so far. He observed and noticed things I would never have done myself. He’s been supportive in new ideas I wanted to try. I’ve gotten a great deal of long term value from therapy with Mark. Would recommend.

I am forever Grateful for Mark Mazzoni

Written by R.E. on May 24, 2021 after therapy with Mark for 10 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, bipolar disorder, coping with life changes, and adhd

I have been with Mark for over a year now, and after 14 years of a variety of treatments and therapists and psychiatrist, Mark has made the greatest difference in my recovery. I have been able to speak of things I never said out loud with him and he has helped me shift my perspective majorly. He is supportive and provides a safe and judgement free space. The biggest testament to this is that this is the first time in my life that I write a review for anything, but I want others out there to know how far you can go with a great therapist, even if it takes a while to find one, it’s completely worth it.

Written by J.U. on May 07, 2021 after therapy with Mark for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and family conflicts

Mark is an incredible counselor with profound insight that he shares with Grace. He makes me feel comfortable and asks questions that assist me with going within to find truth. Thank you mark

Written by T.O. on Apr 02, 2021 after therapy with Mark for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

I’ve only had two sessions with Mark so far, but he has already helped me immensely in recognizing my emotions as they happen. I know that there is a long road to heal my trauma, but I’m confident that Mark has the tools to guide me down this path. I would (and have!) enthusiastically recommend him to anyone hoping to calm anxious and/or irrational thoughts.

Written by D.E. on Mar 24, 2021 after therapy with Mark for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Mark has been such a great help to me in the short time I've worked with him. He's practical and sensible and empathetic. I feel like he has my back, and that means everything. He offers valuable insight from his own life experiences.
I know that I will benefit from his guidance if I stick with it.

Written by C.O. on Mar 23, 2021 after therapy with Mark for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and coaching

Written by R.U. on Mar 17, 2021 after therapy with Mark for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, bipolar disorder, and coping with life changes

Mark is amazing. He recognizes what I need pretty quick while I’m stumbling over myself trying to explain myself. This is a very important thing for me because I have a very hard time communicating my feelings and emotions coherently without becoming so upset I get choked up on my words.

Written by T.A. on Jan 28, 2021 after therapy with Mark for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Mark is one of the most compassionate people I ever spoke to and he really listens to you. I felt like I could tell him anything without being judged. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Written by T.R. on Jan 22, 2021 after therapy with Mark for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

Mark listened to my situation, and then gave me homework, which really helped me. He has provided me with mtiple resources to help myself, while still checking in on me when I do not have an appointment scheduled. I highly recommend Mark.

Written by J.E. on Jan 14, 2021 after therapy with Mark for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and bipolar disorder

I absolutely love his quick response to me, thats an excellent thing is to be quick with responding. He lets me feel welcomed and doesn't judge me because of my past. He helps me cope with the past and stress without making me relive it. I feel a great connection with him. He's absolutely amazing I've even recommended him to my husband and friends.

Written by S.T. on Aug 01, 2020 after therapy with Mark for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

I was interested in using Betterhelp because of the opportunity to be personally matched with a counselor. I appreciated being able to put forward what I was looking for, what specific assistance I needed and being paired with someone comfortable and qualified to address my needs. I have been so pleased with the results. MrMazzoni understood my concerns and is guiding me through my journey. He responds to my messages, seeks and shares links of information and "homework". He listens, seeks to understand and offers relevant advice and counsel.

In just a couple of sessions, and several text, I’ve learned a lot from Mark. I love to read and once he discovered this, he provided me with a ton of great friends information, such as work sheets, books and links to useful websites. I’ve enjoyed working with him!

Written by J.E. on Jul 13, 2020 after therapy with Mark for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and anger management

I've only had a couple of sessions so far, but his knowledge and ability to connect and empathize are beyond my expectations.
