Michelle Hession, LCSW

Revealing your vulnerabilities to a therapist can be a difficult task, but I believe you will find me to be empathetic, honest and easy to talk to. Every part of you will be welcome.

My mission is to provide you with a warm, nonjudgmental space for you to work, explore, create and move towards reaching your goals. We will work collaboratively to resolve your current challenges. My approach to therapy is spiritually and culturally sensitive, and tailored to meet your needs.  I love working with couples, blended families, stepparents, women overcoming a narcissistic partner and singles trying to figure out how to get the relationship they want.

Originally from Louisiana, I have been a resident of Georgia since 2007. My social work experience includes the school system setting as well as several community counseling agencies and the non-profit sector. Since 2012 I have worked as the Clinical Care Director and primary psychotherapist for Key Counseling Group, focusing on making sure our clinicians are the best fit for you and meeting your needs!

Everyone needs help, but they also need a place to reflect on their life and be accepted unconditionally. I take great pride in providing that environment. Someone did that for me and it transformed my life.

With experience in palliative care, both in hospice and my own father's journey with dementia, I have a unique set of skills to whole heartedly guide clients through the most challenging  of circumstances.

I apply integrative approaches to grief and loss treatment focused on navigating through difficult life transitions while also improving ones self-esteem and feelings of self-worth. I also have extensive training in dignity therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy as well as supporting care-takers through mindful self compassion. Reach out, I would be honored to work with you on your journey.

Making the decision to start therapy can feel exciting, but it can also be overwhelming to look through multiple therapist’s profiles and try to determine who might be a good fit for you. Things like a sense of humor, warmth, trust and an overall feeling of “I like you” can be just as important as the education, training and clinical skill of the therapist. I hope to be the good fit you are looking for. Although imperfect and very much human in all aspects of my life, I get excited by the chance to hear your story, to sit with your pain, to explore your struggles and to help release your breakthrough.

I am particularly passionate about working with women that are in the thick of motherhood with littles, individuals and couples that are facing infertility, couples that are seeking to maintain connection amid their busy lives that are pulling them apart, LGBTQ folx, those struggling with anxiety, depression or perfectionism, and those who have experienced adoption or donor conception, either via sperm or egg donation. 

I use an integrated approach to therapy and tailor interventions to match your needs. I utilize my training in IFS, EFT and CBT. I would love to help you further explore the various experiences that have created disappointment, anxiety, pain or fear.  I want to help you break these things down into tangible pieces of the puzzle so we can carefully put it all back together into your authentic self that you have always longed to be. Every part of you matters and is worthy of this special care and attention.

Please reach out: If you and your partner are longing for more and want to better understand why the same arguments keep happening and why you can’t seem to communicate in a way that you both feel seen and heard.  If you are feeling overwhelmed by the intense demands of motherhood and you need a space that is just for you.  If you are grieving from all the negative pregnancy tests or failed fertility cycles. If you are exhausted by the anxiety or perfectionism that is ruling your life. I would be honored to walk alongside you as a source of guidance and support.

When I’m not in my therapy chair, I enjoy spending time outside with my wife and our two children, cooking and baking new recipes and riding my Peloton bike.

At the core of a healthy life is the ability to form close attachments and maintain satisfying relationships. If you are finding it challenging to do so you may benefit from the therapeutic relationship. Therapy provides an opportunity to share your life experiences and explore relational patterns and styles.

Described by my clients as caring and compassionate, I am a therapist who believes in supporting my clients to become the best version of themselves. I am supportive and accepting of who you are and who you would like to be. I am a firm believer in a holistic approach to therapy- healing comes through treating an individual’s mind, body, and soul.

Working through a cognitive behavioral and attachment lens I am a trauma-informed therapist who works best with adults struggling with anxiety, addiction, and trauma. I am also a practitioner of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR). I have experience in a variety of mental health settings, including residential, partial hospitalization, individual therapy and group therapy.

Beneath every behavior there is a Feeling. And beneath each feeling is a Need. And when we meet that need rather than focus on the behavior, we begin to deal with the Cause, not the symptom.

Life and relationships ebb and flow constantly, which can leave us in need of someone to support a process of discovery and healing. Through this process, we are better able to navigate the unexpected twists and turns that make up our complicated lives. 

I am warm, supportive, knowledgeable and accepting of people as they are and want to be. I’m a believer in self-determination; you have the tools within you to determine your best path. I approach the therapeutic process from a systemic perspective; changing yourself results in changes around you. 

I grew up as one of 4 children living in the Midwest. I moved as a young adult to Los Angeles where I lived for many years before relocating to Atlanta. I’m a life-long learner and an avid observer of human behavior to this day.

My ideal clients are teens and their families. I have earned a specialty in school  neuropsychology and trauma. I also welcome individuals and couples who want to strengthen their relationships through therapy or relationship coaching. I am a practitioner of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) and utilize Gottman and Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples.

John Fuente, APC

Under directed experience and clinical supervision of Amy Robbins, LPC003834.

It takes strength to commit to therapy. While society may still look at mental health through the lens of stigma or weakness, I see strength in the people that sit across from me, willing to be vulnerable about their own thoughts and experiences in the pursuit of living a better life and knowing themselves more deeply. I am on that same journey as a human. 

Trained in Rogerian and Person Centered Therapy, I strive hard to reject the dated practice of the “therapist as the expert”. You are the expert of your life. My job and calling is to listen, ask questions about, and ultimately try to understand your reality so you can experience it as a dialogue between two people, allowing you to examine it out loud in a safe space with someone who is on your side.

 I work with individuals, and couples & families of all shapes and sizes. My work is LGBTQ+ affirming, anti-racist, sex positive and feminist. In addition to Person Centered Therapy, I utilize Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness Based CBT interventions to provide a range of options for a client to consider based on our mutual conclusions.

It can be one of the most difficult steps to make that first phone call for therapy. Typically, we are making that call when life feels the most stressful or when we are feeling at our most vulnerable. I strive to support the courage, strength, and determination involved in seeking support.

Described by clients as caring, supportive, and warm, I believe each person possesses innate skills and strengths that can be utilized within therapy. I value strengths-based, person-in-environment, cognitive-behavioral/CBT, DBT, and motivational therapeutic approaches to support each individual’s intrinsic worth and value. 

 

I love working with adults, couples, and families to explore difficulties in coping emotionally, breaking the cycle of addiction or substance use, balancing life stressors, establishing self-esteem, setting healthy boundaries, coping with anxiety, and creating or maintaining healthy relationships. 

 

I strive to help you find your voice, offer new coping skills, and explore presenting concerns within a non-judgmental and warm environment.

Young people express their feelings in a plethora of different ways. Counseling is great to help kids better organize their thoughts and feelings in a productive way for the child and family. 

I work with children, young adults, & families of all sizes and backgrounds.  The theoretical approach I utilize with clients is Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). 

 

I am also a trauma-informed therapist who works with children and young adults who experienced traumatic events or suffer from anxiety. My experience includes years of service with a highly recognized infant mental health psychiatric clinic as well as counseling children and families with reunification, stabilization, and adoption.
