Shatavia A Thomas, DMFT, NCC, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Atlanta
Asking for (and accepting) help is a sign of strength, not a sign of weakness. Take the first few steps of your journey of positive change by seeking therapy and having a sense of hope about the process. While finding a good fit is a critical component of the therapeutic process, commitment and consistency are equally important. I value trust and respect, while working together with clients to increase empowerment, enhance coping skills, and help discover meaningful solutions.
