Brittany Ellison, LPC

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia with over five years of clinical experience. I am a graduate of University of San Francisco and received my masters in Counseling Psychology. I have worked with individuals and couples in various settings with a wide range of behavioral and emotional concerns including anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship & family issues, grief & loss, life transitions and identity development.

I believe our well-being is greatly impacted by early childhood experiences, our culture and our relationships with ourselves and others. With a warm and collaborative therapeutic style, my goal is to create a safe and welcoming space where clients can feel seen and not judged, allowing for vulnerability and authentic sharing. I have an integrative approach, incorporating theoretical orientations including humanistic, psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral modalities. I believe each client is unique, and treatment should reflect their uniqueness. We will work together to tailor treatment to clients specific needs. 

I deeply respect my clients and the wisdom they already have within and would count it an honor to walk with you through the journey of therapy. Thank you for reaching out for support.

"The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination."  -Carl Rogers

Are you struggling to enjoy your life? Are things like anxiety, addiction, anger and/or marital stress keeping you from living the “good life”?

Life is hard, sometimes even tragic, but there is nothing you can’t improve with purposeful action, and guided personal reflection.  Take the first step and contact me, so we can get started improving that road you’re on.

I am an independently Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Georgia and have many years of experience working with diverse groups of people struggling through many of life’s problems.  For the last 6 years I have been predominately helping people through their addictions and the many problems associated with them. I am a strong believer in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and have seen the skillful implementation of it cause positive change in countless lives.

After receiving my undergrad from Florida State University, I went on to complete my Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Capella University.  Since then I have worked with hundreds of individuals and families on a wide range of issues preventing them from living the “good life”. I can listen to you without judgment, help you explore solutions to what is troubling you, and apply many years of training in the therapeutic process as well as real world experience to help us get you to place you want to be.

So whether it is a short-term problem you need a little help working through or a larger burden that has been holding you back, please give me a call so we can get you started on the path to a better more enjoyable life.

Dietra Taylor, LPC

Self love is the key to how we relate to all aspects of our life including relationships, raising children, career, spirituality, etc.  Somewhere in our life we were taught and embraced that everyone else is first and we come last. Do you find yourself struggling to put everyone’s oxygen mask on first before putting on your own mask?  My mission is to help you peel back those things that you were forced to embrace that serve as a distraction from loving yourself, trusting yourself, and living an intentional purpose driven life. I will help you develop emotional wealth through habitual relaxation, ongoing self-care plan and a purpose plan.  “Loving yourself is the key to loving others.” Don Miguel The Four Agreements

With over 13 years of experience as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), I believe that you are the expert on your life experiences and I am the facilitator to help you find the answers and remove the barriers from reaching your goals. I received my masters degree in Community Psychology from Florida A&M University.  I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy which is client centered and focuses on developing your strengths while acknowledging and addressing past and recent challenges and traumas. Some of the populations I serve include Veterans and military families, youth, adults and clients with special needs.  Behavioral health challenges I specialize in serving include PTSD, anger management, stress and anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and substance use. Thank you for stepping out of the chaos and taking time for yourself today. My hope is that you continue on the journey to emotional wealth and self love by allowing me the opportunity to enter the journey with you.

Zakia Simpson, LCSW

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state Georgia, I have extensive experience working with children, families, couples and adults with concerns including past trauma (sexual, emotional, physical), transition/adjustment, depression, anxiety, self esteem, relationship issues, parenting problems, and life challenges.

I practice in a client-centered therapeutic style which means that I adapt my style to best serve the needs of the clients I serve. With compassion and warmth, I help my clients gain an understanding of the underlying causes of their area of concern. I help clients cultivate insight into the emotional pain that negatively affects their functioning, and assist in the development and implementation of healthy coping strategies that naturally lead to improved functioning and peaceful living.

I believe that change happens when people are given the guidance they need to draw on their own strengths and realize their potential to live fulfilling, happy lives. My aim is to provide an environment of compassion and support to help individuals and families overcome obstacles to move forward and thrive. *Weekend appointments available*
