Hi there! I am Monica, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Educator in Georgia. I have been a LPC for 14+ years and an Educator for over 20 years. I am a 3rd generation graduate of Alabama A&M University, where I received my undergraduate degree in Special Education in 1999. I received both my master’s and specialist degrees in Counseling in 2002. While I have helped a wide range of people in a wide range of environments, I specialize in working with people who are struggling to manage their emotions across school, home and work environments. I have found that my work with parents, college students and recent graduates is both effective and rewarding.
My therapeutic approach combines Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Brief Solution Focused Therapy. I believe that our thoughts guide our behavior. Working together, we can challenge problematic thought patterns while measuring your therapeutic progress by setting attainable short term goals. We will then use your victories as momentum for you to continue to commit to your therapeutic journey.
If anything that you have read about me and my work sounds comforting in any way, then we may be a good fit for each other. Reach out to me now to discuss how I can support you on your journey to living the life that you both want and deserve.

She is very understanding and encouraging. She is awesome! I would recommend her to anybody
During our short sessions, Monica manages to remind me of my strengths.
My counselor Monica Coleman has helped me to see that I’m doing well and the way I feel is ok. She gives me hope to know that things will get better. She makes me feel safe to express my feelings.
Monica has been a big help for me in a short amount of time. I have confidence that things will get better as long as I keep coming back.
Monica has been such a huge help to me in just a matter of a month! This is my first experience in any type of professional therapy so I was nervous going into it but after my first appointment I felt immediately lighter and excited for my next session. Monica is a blessing!
Monica is awesome and helped me through a difficult family problem!
