Hanifa Akpe, NCC, LCPC, LPC

The decision to seek individual therapy can be an uncomfortable one for many.  As a clinician, I deeply respect my clients for the strength and resilience that it takes to seek the help of a professional.  Engagement in therapy is a journey, a process- one that I would like to embark on with you.  

As a client, it is important for you to know that you are not alone.  The therapeutic process is a unique and collaborative one in which you are the expert of your experience.  I will help equip you with tools to enhance your experience, while working toward your goals. I believe this is achieved through a strong client/therapist relationship, evidenced based interventions and appreciation for diversity.  I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy techniques while working from a Person-Centered lens. As a clinician, it is important for me to see each person as an individual, using a compassionate and nonjudgmental approach.  I am also a strong proponent that one size does not fit all. Thus, treatment planning is a joint effort in which you and I work together to develop and cater treatment specific to you and your needs.  

You have taken the first difficult step in searching for a helping professional in hopes of meeting your overall goals.  Together you and I will travel your journey to conquer your challenges toward living your best experience.

Ingrid Peper, LCSW

Hello, I am Ingrid Peper, and I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Georgia. Since 2008, I have been providing counseling and social work services to children and adults in hospitals, outpatient settings, private practices and in homes. I have particular interest and skills in working with those struggling with anxiety, depression, anger management, ADHD, poor self-esteem and insufficient coping mechanisms. These challenges seem to arise for most people during the course of a lifetime, and I am happy to work with clients of all ages, particularly children and adolescents. 

My approach to therapy is flexible depending on how the client and I can best work together to reach his or her goals. I think that the most important factors in developing a good therapeutic relationship are the comfort level, the trust and the honest communication between the client and the counselor. You can expect me to be non-judgmental, caring, and open-minded. This will be a collaboration, whereupon we can each speak freely with your best interests always in the forefront. 

I tend to incorporate techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Play Therapy (with children/adolescents), Person-centered therapy, anxiety reduction and strength-based strategies. The methods used will depend upon your goals, comfort level, and our discovery of how we can best work together to meet your needs. Together we will devise a plan and program that will be effective and enjoyable for you. 

I am glad that you have the courage and fortitude to reach out for support. I would be pleased and honored to help you during this difficult time in your life.

EMDR Trained/Trauma Trained/Marriage and Couples Therapy

Deciding to begin therapy could be one of the most challenging decisions you face for you and your family. Identifying that you need additional support and accepting the challenge of allowing someone to step in and provide you with that support is a major step in the right direction and requires a lot of courage. Counseling is more than telling a stranger your problems. It’s a decision that will enable you to learn how to manage your stress or circumstance, giving you the energy you need to pursue your goals and live a more peaceful, satisfying and fulfilling life.

As a counselor, I provide a person-centered approach building on a client’s strengths while incorporating Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy and mindfulness techniques. I can provide support and treatment with issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, grief support, substance abuse and behavioral issues.

I have over 10 years of experience in mental health working with children, adolescents and adults. I served as the Director of Outpatient Services for over years developing and providing treatment in a Partial Hospitalization Program in Atlanta, GA. I specialize in working with women empowerment and adults on life changes, career stress, self-esteem and awareness. I enjoy helping patients move forward to the next stage in their lives.

My only goal is to help my clients to become autonomous, identify who they are and become the best version of themselves. So, if you feel ready to work on improving yourself, your situation and to reach your goals please call or email today to schedule an initial appointment.

To paraphrase an old but true saying, “the only thing constant in life is change.” One thing that was left out is that change can often times be scary and hard. Just when we think things are going good, life has a way of throwing us a curve ball just to make things “interesting.” Whether you are experiencing difficulty with coping with changes related to your emotions, your relationships, your job, your health, or just life in general, counseling can help. 

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with approximately 12 years of experience with working with children, adults, families, and couples.  I am proud to have an all-inclusive practice that serves clients and families of varying ethnicities, sexual orientations, socio-economic status, and other cultural backgrounds. I take pride in providing a comfortable and welcoming (yet always professional) environment where clients are encouraged to be open and honest. My primary goal is to help my clients to uncover their innate ability to adapt and thrive despite any challenges they may face.

Common issues that I help with include depression, anxiety, self-esteem, anger management, relationship stressors, behavior issues, trauma and abuse, stress management, relational codependency, suicidal thoughts, and grief. I utilize a holistic/systems approach to counseling in order to understand the impact that a client’s mental, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being may have on the issues that they are facing. While I believe quality training is important, I also believe that it is just as important to find a counselor that is a good “fit.” I would the love the opportunity to see if I am a good fit to help assist you on your journey. With online counseling (within the state of Georgia), 24/7 scheduling, and a complimentary 15 minute consultation, you are just one mouse click/phone call of way, so…let’s HEAL together!

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, my goal is to empower individuals from a systemic approach. Whatever you may be experiencing, whether it's depression, anxiety, or a change in lifestyle, I strive to bring understanding and acceptance.

I use a variety of techniques, depending on the individual's needs. My experience includes working with clients dealing with mood disorders, grief and loss, addictions, stress and anxiety, family conflict, and many other challenges that occur across the lifespan.

The power of perspective can change someone’s whole worldview. I would like to help my clients see they have the ability to be whoever they want to be. I gravitate towards a holistic approach, which allows me to assist in more than one area of life.  Looking at the problem from a systemic perspective expands the viewpoint, allowing for more solutions and an ability to deal with problems more effectively.

I aim to promote gratitude and contentment in any circumstance. Therapy can be intimidating, but the idea is one step at a time. Setting goals alleviates anxiety and gives you something to look forward to. I’m happy to assist you on this journey as your therapist.

Kinsey Thomas, LPC

Have you been having frequent struggles with balancing your life, feeling tired and overwhelmed, or finding the motivation to get things done? I believe we all go through times like this but sometimes these periods can be harder to deal with and cope, especially for long periods of time. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I have been helping and supporting individuals through some of their most difficult times in life. I have over 10 years of clinical experience in treating adults in both individual and family with numerous concerns such as, but not limited to, depression, grief, anger, stress management, chronic pain, domestic violence, sexual assault, and traumatic brain injury.

My goal is to help others find the beauty and maintain peace in their lives during and after the pressures of life. The type of therapy I practice to help achieve this, Client Centered Therapy, puts you behind the wheel leading the way with me next to you nurturing and supporting you along the journey. The benefit to this is your greater ability to begin trusting yourself in the process of growing and healing. I also like to include other approaches in therapy that teach us different ways of thinking, behaving, and being in the present moment. These approaches (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy/Mindfulness) are found to be helpful in managing stress, controlling thoughts, and finding an acceptance in things you may not be able to change.

Kinsey is a mason jar loving, southerner at heart, who loves being with her family and friends, traveling, eating, learning new things, and cherishing her alone time when she’s not entertaining her busy toddler.

Dr. Michael Marti

Dr. Michael Marti strives to help clients gain awareness of what is keeping them stuck and to help them develop effective, healthier, coping strategies for gaining control in their lives. Reaching out for help and making that initial phone call can be difficult for some people, but feeling stuck in your life, a job or in a relationship that is not working can be even more challenging. Michael has expertise in treating clients who have experienced trauma/PTSD, depression and anxiety disorders. In addition, he provides services for people that struggle with chronic pain, marital difficulties, spirituality, unresolved grief/loss and problems managing anger. If you are struggling with any of these problems, he encourages you to call and make an appointment. His approach to therapy is a collaborative one. Working together, you will focus on identifying your issues, clarifying your goals, reducing symptoms and achieving personal growth. If you are tired of feeling depressed, anxious, or just feeling lost, then call for an initial consult and start focusing on getting better. (Saturday appointments are also available.)
