Roderick Y Watkins, MA, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Atlanta
"We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future." - Steve Maraboli
You have far greater potential than what you've realized. Through family and individual therapy, I guide people in moving beyond self-perceived limits brought on by mental illness and life circumstances. I provide treatment on a brief or long term basis using accurate assessments, evidenced based treatment, integrity, ethics, competence, and advocacy.
I specialize in multicultural backgrounds, ethnic and racial issues, and problems related to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, & Transgender individuals. You deserve to be treated with sensitivity, respect and confidentiality. Take back your power, by taking control of your mental health. You're entitled to all the good you can perceive and more. Let's start today.
