Shameka Walker

(LPC)

About Me

Hello, I’m Shameka. I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor with the state of Georgia for 3 years. I have 9 plus years of mental health and substance abuse experience working with adults. I have worked with individuals in various situations such as depression, anxiety, parenting concerns, adjusting to life changes, and substance disorders.

I will use several therapeutic approaches during our counseling sessions to meet your needs such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), positive psychology approach, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and solution focused therapy. I use a person-centered, holistic, multicultural, and integrative approach in treatment. This means I begin where you are and tailor the treatment approach to your needs while being sensitive to how your individual cultural identities and lifestyle choices impact your experience.

As a therapist, my approach is very supportive and validating, while challenging you to confront barriers that prohibit you from feeling happy and fulfilledI believe that counseling is a collaborative experience and I will work with you to help you identify your personal and mental health goals, while helping you utilize your strengths to live to your full potential.

You've already taken the first step towards seeking support and direction in your life. I look forward to working with you!
