Tamara Williams-Newton, LPC

Life can be challenging.  It helps to talk to someone. I can provide a listening ear free from judgment.  Everyone, at some point in their lives, will experience sadness, depression, anxiety, and stress.  The key is not to allow these feelings to overwhelm and consume our lives.

I can assist with helping you understand and cope with these feelings, so that you can  navigate life’s obstacles and be the best version of yourself.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I earned my BS in Human Services at Shorter University, Rome, GA. My MA in Counseling at Argosy University, Atlanta, GA.

I am a native New Yorker, and fluent in Spanish.  During my career, I have worked with different demographics to include children and youth who are dealing with emotions and behavior concerns. Adults and Seniors.

My counseling approach is Person-Centered because everyone has different situations they need to work through.  I believe that everyone deserves respect and dignity. I work to assist in reconnecting and reclaiming any loss of dignity through the realization of your strengths.

I became a counselor because I enjoy helping individuals make positive growth and change during the therapeutic process.  I want everyone to know that they are not alone in how they feel, so let us work together.

Connect with a Peachtree City Counselor today at 678-383-1210, to set up your first session and start the process to change.

of that time. What comes across first and foremost is her caring and concern for her clients and her determination to see that their needs are met. She brings to her work a wide range of experience and training along with confidence that is reassuring and a comfort to those in distress. She can deal calmly with the most severe issues as well as with problems of daily living. In the time that I've known her, she has been licensed in three different states to practice in a variety of settings. If you come to her in a time of need, in a time of emotional upheaval or difficult questions, I don't think you will find a more competent or more caring therapist.

A game changer for me!!

cret (that I will not keep a secret) if you haven't met her - and if you have not been to Thriveworks yet, than that is the second best kept secret. Thriveworks is the most incredible counseling place that I have ever been to - when you walk in - it offers such a tranquil and serene atmosphere, where every counselor greets you with a very welcoming spirit. I have been to multiple counselors throughout my life, in multiple states, and it is without hesitation that this environment is incredible. When you call to schedule an appointment to meet with a counselor, they work really hard to try and match you with a counselor that best fits the struggles that you are going through - but at any point during your counseling sessions, if you feel that the match may not be perfect - they want you to be honest so that they can try and fix it, or match you with someone that may be a better fit for you within the practice or refer you to someone they know outside of the practice. That is what an amazing practice and counselor should do! Stacey is by far the BEST counselor I have every worked with. She is genuine, honest, skilled, raw, empathetic, compassionate, pneumatic, accepting, flexible, communicable, my safe place, and so VERY kind. Her aura is something I have never seen before and although I am on a life journey of discovery and acceptance, I am so thankful for her to be on this journey with me because I do not know what I would have done with out her. If you are reading this review and are wondering if this is the place for you - I challenge you to give it a shot - it was a life changer for me.
