Adori Glover, Counselor

I am Adori Glover, a dedicated and compassionate clinical mental health counselor. With a strong passion for helping individuals overcome mental health challenges and improve their overall well-being, I am committed to making a positive impact on the lives of those I work with.

Ashley Reynolds, Counselor

**Available for On-Site Counseling Only**

“True life is lived when tiny changes occur.” – Leo Tolstoy

Hi, I’m Ashley Reynolds, and I am currently spending time acquiring my Master’s degree in Clinical/Counseling Psychology at Clayton State University (Go Lakers!). As a counselor here at Thriveworks, I’ll be receiving supervision from one of our trained therapists on site. During my Undergraduate season, I also finished out at Clayton State University and received my degree in Psychology and Human Services.

Some may ask, “Why choose this path? Why mental health?” Growing up, I spent time focusing on how different factors can affect the way each person continues through life. Some people seek a listening ear. Others may need guidance towards their path of acceptance and change. I want to be a part of the change my community seeks. I want each client I encounter to feel open to their experience while reminding them that they are the authors of their story. It is their journey of growth that I will be along for during their time.

My approaches in therapy revolve around both a Cognitive Behavioral and Psychodynamic approach. Psychodynamic approaches focus on childhood experiences and how they may affect one in adulthood. With the Cognitive Behavioral approach, we will focus on changing negative thoughts which contribute to emotional hardships one may be experiencing. Both approaches will be molded to fit the needs of each client.

Specialties Include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Self-Esteem
  • Bullying
  • Life transitions
  • Relationship challenges

Jahnia Philips, Counselor

**Available for On-Site Counseling Only**

Hello! My name is Jahnia Phillips, and I am a supervised counselor here at Thriveworks. I am currently pursuing my Master of Science degree in Clinical & Counseling Psychology at Clayton State University. Before attending Clayton State University, I received my Bachelor of Science degree in psychology at Howard University. It was here that I cultivated a strong drive for assisting others in recognizing how their thoughts, mental well-being, and life events are interconnected. I strive to facilitate treatment plans that are individualized and realistic to the client’s needs. I want to positively influence the personal development of my clients. 

Nonetheless, I pride myself in seeing the whole person and not just their presenting concern. 

It is my goal at thriveworks to provide a safe and healthy environment for clients to explore their experiences as I realize that seeking therapy is not an easy step for everyone, and it does not evolve in a linear manner. Therefore, I will work with my clients at their own pace as they are the sole expert of their life. By utilizing both the client’s information and my integrated therapeutic style of Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral, and Humanistic approaches I aim to provide the best support to my clients. 

As you navigate toward your goals, I am here to listen without judgment. Everyone deserves a space where they can be their most authentic self! If you can see me being a helping hand in your therapeutic journey, please feel free to seek out our services!

Noah Ambrose, Counselor

**Available for On-Site Counseling Only**

Hello, my name is Noah Ambrose. My educational background is a B.A. in Psychology & Human Services, and I am working towards a M.S. in Clinical/Counseling Psychology at Clayton State University. While working at Thriveworks, I will be under supervision as I work towards graduating. My reason for entering the mental health field stems from growing up around others with mental health issues and seeing the help they needed but were not able to get.

These challenges may seem impossible at times, but I believe we all can reach our goals and surpass those challenges.

Robert Morris, Counselor

**Available for Online and On-Site Counseling**

My name is Robert Morris and I am a Pre-licensed professional under direct supervision. My educational background includes a M.S. in Marriage & Family Therapy from Mercer University School of Medicine and a B.A. in Early Childhood Education from Morehouse College. With more than 14 years of clinical experience in Hospice & Palliative end-of-life care, I helped many clients navigate illness, death, as well as grief and bereavement. I have also worked with at risk teens in foster care, adoptive families, and with reuniting families in home based and community settings.

Sometimes conflicts and tensions come about in relationships and even within our own selves as we try to sort out issues or challenges, which are really opportunities for growth. One of the most profound yet simple things a therapist has ever said to me is, “There is more room out here for your feelings than inside”.  My mission is to provide an “open space” for all individuals, couples, and families to thrive and grow into their maximum potential. I endeavor to provide a safe space for all individuals to become the best version of themselves; In particular, individuals who are marginalized or find themselves on the periphery of society due to labels or stigmas inflicted upon them by society or culture.

I take a systems approach to therapy and utilize various models including person centered, intergenerational, structural, cognitive behavioral and mindfulness based, solution focused, as well as narrative and collaborative therapies. I am also a Prepare & Enrich Facilitator. As a therapist, I walk alongside my clients as they narrate and re-imagine their life stories and write their own endings.

Specialties include:

  • Grief & loss
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Adoption
  • Prepare & Enrich Facilitator
  • Foster Care
  • Couples Therapy
  • Family Therapy

Tiwanna Davis, LPC

**Available for On-Site Counseling Only**

If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging time or you're ready to move in a new direction in your life, therapy is a great first step. With compassion, empathy and a safe environment, we will work together identifying issues, gaining insights into unhealthy patterns, setting goals for the future and making the changes you desire for a more fulfilling life. My years in the inpatient setting have prepared me to treat individuals suffering from a wide range of psychological difficulties and acuity. I work with adolescents, individuals, couples, and families.

I assist clients through life transitions as they contend with the challenges of adolescence, current and past trauma, assuming the responsibilities of adulthood, adjusting to marriage, parenting, divorce, aging, loss and grief and retirement.  Utilizing an eclectic therapy approach, I strive to provide a safe space for you to explore the painful circumstances you find yourself experiencing. Then, empower you to make the changes that will lead you to a more fulfilling and peaceful life. It will be my pleasure to guide and support you along your journey of creating a happy, healthy you.
