I'm Tameika, a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia with over 8 years f experience. I attended and graduated from North Carolina A & T State University in June 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, and from Argosy University – Atlanta, formerly The Georgia School of Professional Psychology in May 2010 with a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology. I have worked in various treatment settings over the years such as Traditional Outpatient Treatment in a private practice setting, Inpatient Behavioral Health Facilities, Partial Hospitalization Programs, Intensive Outpatient Treatment, In Home and Community Counseling setting, Probation - Day Reporting Centers, and Managed Care. I have had the pleasure of working with children as young as 3 years old, up to geriatric patients/clients in these various settings.
I'm currently in private practice in Atlanta, GA, owner of Tameika Cheek, LLC where I offer individual therapy to young adults. I also offer a self-esteem and personal development workshop for teen girls in 8th-12th grade. I'm a down-to-earth, millennial therapist who specializes in helping primarily young women develop healthier relationships with themselves and others. Together, we work through difficult experiences & life transitions with the lack of self-esteem, self-worth, and self-love being the root of the issue: depression & anxiety, the break-up you can’t get over, your overbearing parent, unhealthy expectations, feeling stuck in life, the killer of joy-comparison, boundary issues in relationships, self-defeating negative thoughts, poor self-care, or even just needing a mental health check up. Any of this sound familiar? I can help!
I take pride in providing a safe space & experience for us to build a healthy relationship, explore, process, & work through your difficulties together. I've helped many clients increase their self-esteem, self-love, & compassion, develop healthy/rational thoughts, & improve relationships through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy , coaching, accountability, empowering, & motivating.
I am very passionate about self-care, personal growth and empowerment, and promoting a good mental health regimen. Taking the first step of reaching out for help can be very difficult but also courageous. I'm ready to help you with the rest when you are!
Additional areas of focus: Family conflicts, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Career difficulties
Very easy to talk to. Very knowledgeable and helps you understand yourself better. Definitely would recommend!

Tameika is really great. These past few weeks working with her have really been great. I can be a very anxious and nervous person but after a couple of sessions I felt really comfortable talking to her. She listens, and empathizes with me which is something that most people are not willing to do.
