  • Abby

    My name is Abby Wesselmann, and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. The population I serve is couples, families and individuals striving to improve their interpersonal relationships. I enjoy reading, spending time with my loved ones and doting on my animal. I cannot wait to show you how great therapy is going to be for you!

  • 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.”

  • Laijun

    Works with ages 13 and older, providing treatment for teens and adults dealing with life’s challenges. 

    She understands the importance of clients finding a counselor with whom they can connect in more ways than one. Her understanding of this led her to the reason why she pursued counseling.

    “As a therapist, I believe it is important to walk in your purpose and I believe I do that every day. I realize that more people who look like me need to see us in these same spaces and recognize that mental health is something that we all deal with.”
