LGBTQIA friendly. My practice is centered around human issues. Positive relationships are challenging to build. Whether its parent/child, husband/wife, wife/wife, husband/husband or any other combination. My goal is to increase communication, understanding and knowledge between people in order to create positive and productive growth. We will focus on barriers and obstacles that may be keeping us from living our best lives, and work together on mapping out a plan for success. I have currently added substance abuse and anger management assessments to my practice. As our society becomes more accepting of alternative relationships, the need for added support has increased. I offer that space where individuals can feel comfortable in knowing they are accepted. I am a fully licensed counselor focusing on sexual issues. This ranges from communication to sexual dysfunction and a variety of topics in between. I have recently completed my ASSECT certification and am now a certified sex therapist. Giving a voice to individuals who may be afraid to be heard is empowering and fulfilling. No one should be afraid to be happy and for me, it is my passion to be uplifting to all. My practice is based on the West side of Atlanta, but I have various satellite options around the city.

15 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hi, thanks for checking my profile, my legal first name is Beatrice, please join my family and friends in calling me Faith. Overall, I tend to be informal as a counselor. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with over 15 years of experience. While my official professional title is properly documented, I consider myself to be in the "human love and restoration business". This explains the varied things I’ve done professionally and personally. My sole purpose in a client session, or even in a brief interaction with another person, is to “add value ” in whatever manner this needs to happen. I consider it an honor and privilege to be welcomed into a person's life; consequently I want to make them glad we met. I understand the value of putting ideas and concepts into writing to enhance communications, and for professional/personal growth. I am a confirmed contribution to two publications, "Seeing is Achieving, Invisible Walls & How to Break Through to Achieve Success”. (2013). And, as a contributor, editor and researcher for an innovative high school textbook, “Black History 365 An Inclusive Account of American History", (BH365.org) just published, August 2020. It is a great pleasure helping clients empower themselves--assisting each person in uncovering their true self-worth and value. I find most people underestimate their abilities, while overestimating obstacles. This doesn't mean ignoring or minimizing real difficulties and even pain. However, I believe people are smart, creative and capable, as a gift of birth. We work together to “remove the dross” -- issues impeding the ability to enjoy life fully. I love nature and often encourage clients to look at animals and how they cope with stressors in their environment. They do so without the added burden of things like guilt and low-self-esteem. My philosophy as a counselor is to help clients release their "fun gene"--let’s talk about ways to bring a big smile to your face, despite very real challenges dogging your heels. In other words, I’m big on fun! It’s a default approach in most cases. I’ve found when we laugh out loud and be less serious, things tend to improve faster. It’s a valuable cheat sheet; we talk about specific fun opportunities unique to each individual. Since no two peoples are alike, I customize sessions for every client. While I occasionally use similar clinical tools, I enter each new client relationship with fresh eyes—open to what naturally manifest as the best approach . As a result of doing a lot of professional contract work when my son was young (needed work hour flexibility), I gained experience in a broad away of people services and counseling. These include working with individual and couples, medical social work, a trainer in professional career development, and over 8 years working with military service members, couples and families. I've also been a business owner in fields unrelated to social work; my family too has a history of business ownership, Because of this, I love encouraging clients to stretch and take calculated risk to reach new goals lying dormant in the soul. In essence, my goal is to help clients attain a higher quality of life, never living in fear of any kind—the sky’s the limit. Finally, while I use a solution-based approach in counseling, we jointly decide on goals, plans and objectives--seeking to impose solutions backfires every time. Clients have "what it takes" to heal and feel better; I see it all the time and know it deep in my soul. I look forward to meeting you in a session where we can laser focus on how to bring more peace, joy and contentment into your precious life. All the best, Faith

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Toccoa?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Toccoa therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Toccoa therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Toccoa therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Toccoa therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in GA, therapists may be booked out with clients.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Toccoa counselor?

Before seeing your Toccoa therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Toccoa.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Toccoa licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Toccoa counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Toccoa, Georgia can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Toccoa has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
