I am a Licensed Professional Counselor licensed in Georgia with over 8 years of experience working as a counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, grief and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral and trauma focused counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Semika has been absolutely wonderful to work with! I have learned so much from my time working with her and I constantly find ways to apply the skills we work on together in my daily life. I attribute a lot of my mental wellness to my sessions with her, and am so thankful I have had her as my therapist!

I haven’t been with Semika long, but so far I have really been enjoying our sessions! She listens to me, encourages me, and never fails to tell me she’s proud when I make positive strides for myself! I strongly recommend her!
