Dr. Helen B Vantine

Psychologist , PhD

(678) 667-8187
I am seeking patients who are particularly interested in their psychological, emotional, physical, and spiritual development, not just reducing their suffering. Patients who are interested in expanding their joy, improving their awareness, increasing their risk-taking capacity, and making more thoughtful and conscious choices. I work with adults, adolescents, and couples. I also teach Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction classes several times a year. See atlantamindfulness.com for the class schedule.
I have 30 years experience as a masters level and then a Ph.D. level psychotherapist. I have extensive training in western psychological approaches, most particularly cognitive behavioral, humanistic, and transpersonal. In addition, I have spent over 40 years working with eastern psychological approaches to personal growth.
Most western psychology aims to restore the patient to "ordinary unhappiness," eastern approaches work to reduce suffering by expanding consciousness and the ability to be present. The hope of therapy is not only to restore the patient to normal functioning, but to increase their capacity for joy, love, and connection.

More about this group

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction is a weekly class that lasts for 8 week. It also includes one Sunday day-long retreat. Extensive research over the past 40 years has shown it to be an effective intervention for a number of medical and mental health problems as well as job or family related stress. Chronic pain, fatigue, headaches, high blood pressure, cancer, sleep disturbances, anger management, ADHD, anxiety, panic disorder, and depression have all shown substantial improvement when dealt with mindfully.
