Ca’Landra Blockman, MA, NCC, LPC

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.
