  • Akeem

    Akeem works with individuals from ages 16 to adulthood. He provides treatment for individuals who are dealing with daily life stressors no matter their diagnosis.

    He believes that it is important for clients to be presented with a space to feel comfortable to be their authentic selves. Akeem enjoys making therapy sessions feel like a casual conversation without judgement or bias.

    ''A mentor once told me that my goal as a therapist is to assist in a client no longer needing my help and that is what I strive to do in every session.''

  • Brittany
    Chief Operating Officer

    Brittany is a Licensed Professional Counselor who works with anyone age 16+! She provides treatment for most mental health diagnoses, but tends to gravitate towards life transitions, OCD, BPD, anxiety and depression. 

    Brittany takes pride in providing a space for clients to be themselves and share the difficult life experiences they can't always share with others. What most clients value most about Brittany is her calm and warm presence in session. She makes sure Georgia Behavioral clients receive the best care and the company continues to run smoothly.

    “Life can be hard. Sometimes people just need to know someone is there walking through the hard stuff with them and reminding them that the hard stuff isn't permanent stuff and it does not define who they are.”
