About me

Hello!! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Georgia for the past 14 years. My professional experience began in mental health hospitals with children and young adults who were experiencing extreme trauma and eventually a Care Manager for managed care companies. I later opened a private practice called My Caring Counseling that allowed me to have a creative platform for my clients who needed a space to feel comfortable and safe to express themselves and heal. My experience is primarily with clients who are struggling with depression symptoms, life stressors, anxiety, coping with unexpected life changes, self esteem issues, interpersonal and relationship challenges and couples who are struggling with fertility issues.

My theoretical orientation is an eclectic approach to healing and treatment. My techniques include motivational interviewing, a wholistic approach to include mindfulness techniques, movement-therapy to enhance the person’s cognitive, physical, mental and emotional wellbeing, solution-focus therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy. My style is very warm, caring and open, being attentive and listening closely to your needs. I believe we all have the power to heal ourselves and make the changes we seek within our lives and I am here to help you navigate through this process.

As a therapist from a culturally diverse background I am committed to include all culturally diverse groups of young adults, older adults and couples. I completed a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion training to ensure my therapeutic approach is tailored appropriately and includes everyone. It is important to remain aware and sensitive to the needs of my clients.

I am excited to be your therapist and help you navigate your life's journey.

My counselor Shirnel Alleyne-Grant is a very professional and experienced and knowledgeable person. From day one she made me feel comfortable and like we had known each other for years. She allows me to chase a rabbits every once in a while but always leads me back to my issues. In our few sessions I have come to truly respect her and her advise and counsel. I highly recommend her if you are needing someone to talk to.

This is my first time using BetterHelp and Shirlen is the first therapist I was connected with. I had expected to need to change therapists a few times before finding the right fit - from our first session I knew that Shrinel got it, and gets me. Our sessions are productive and effective. She listens so well and can get right to the core of situations and my own ways of being while still empowering me. Straight from the heart, I would recommend Shirnel to anyone.

I enjoyed our earlier sessions but the last two she has been dismissive and distracted and it hasn’t been a good experience.
